CORTEX takes self-driving cars off-roading

Land Rover is aiming to make all-terrain autonomous vehicles a reality

CORTEX, a world-leading collaboration between Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), the University of Birmingham Cambridge-based Myrtle AI, to create the world's first self-driving car capable of performing off-road, has been featured in Wired, the monthly technology and culture magazine.

Birmingham researchers based in the University's Microwave Integrated Systems Laboratory will be developing a ‘5D’ technique combining real-time acoustic, video, radar, light detection and distance sensing (LiDAR) data. Access to this combined data improves the awareness of the environment the car is in. When combined with machine learning, this will enable the self-driving car to behave in an increasingly sophisticated way, allowing it to handle any weather condition on any terrain.
