A paper by two Apple AI researchers on improvements to robot navigation is fueling speculation that the computer giant is delving deeper into the business of self-driving cars.
Published by Yin Zhou and Oncel Tuzel on Arxiv, a site for scientific papers yet to be peer reviewed, the report details software called VoxelNet. The 3D detection network is pitched as an alternative to LiDAR, a laser-surveying method used in some self-driving car models to measure and determine potential obstacles.
The duo report that LiDAR-only detection has flaws, such as identifying small objects or obstacles in the distance. According to the newly-released paper, [READ MORE HERE]
