/robowaifu/ - DIY Robot Wives

Advancing robotics to a point where anime catgrill meidos in tiny miniskirts are a reality.

Roadmap: file restoration script within a few days, Final Solution alpha in a couple weeks.

Sorry for not being around for so long, will start getting back to it soon.

Self-driving cars AI + hardware Robowaifu Technician 09/11/2019 (Wed) 07:13:28 No.112
Obviously the AI and hardware needed to run an autonomous gynoid robot is going to be much more complicated than that required to drive an autonomous car, but there are at least some similarities, and the cars are very nearly here now. There are also several similarities between the automobile design, production and sales industries and what I envision will be their counterparts in the 'Companion Robot' industries. Practically every single advance in self-driving cars will eventually have important ramifications for the development and production of Robowaifus.

ITT: post ideas and news about self-driving cars and the hardware and software that makes them possible. Also discuss the technical, regulatory, and social challenges ahead for them. Please keep in mind this is the /robowaifu/ board, and if you have any insights about how you think these topics may crossover and apply here would also be welcome.

How about it be about all autonomous vehicles, not just cars. Trucks, trains, boats, planes things like that. The AI and other parts behind all these probably have many similarities.
I think as long as the frequency of these types of fatal accidents remains low, then the lugenpress won't feel they can drum up much public outcry against AI car manufacturers. This report is 500 pages long.

I imagine the same lugenpress will have a field day when the first robowaifu-attributable owner death occurs.

This is the software behind Stanford's car that won the first DARPA Grand Challenge.

there is also a different robot car they worked on for the later DARPA Urban Challenge also uses this code.

BTW, this code relies on the Robotics Operating System

Apparently electric cars can be recharged wirelessly while they are moving down the road.

Can this idea be translated to your home (or out in public even) environment /robowaifu/? And will your waifu ever even run out of juice if we can?
Tired of the Western POZfest in autodriving cars? Why not support the iron fist of Eastern Communism instead?

Baidu (the state-run chink version of Jewgle) is working on this stuff too.

Now the Swedes are trying to get in on this.

While not exactly self-driving topic, the battery part must be important here.

From the No Starch imprint. Details reverse-engineering automotive embedded electronics, ostensibly to improve them. White/Gray hat stuff. This certainly has import for developers of robowaifus, whose CnC is actually much more complicated in the end.
