The three principles we propose are new in the driverless-car industry. The industry can now build outstanding driverless cars equipped with these new principles. Furthermore, those new cars remove the fear factor seen in existing driverless cars as well as minimize the risks of causing accidents. Those cars behave gently in motion and friendly to people.
MotionLab is ready to license our technology to an interested firm; it receives hands-on training from the founder in person and all the help it needs. The firm and MotionLab form a joint team to build one or more pilot driverless car. The technology-transfer protocols include the following four steps:
Step 1: Delivering intellectual properties
MotionLab delivers these MotionLab properties to the firm:
1.1 A PDF textbook An Introduction to Symmetric Geometry (currently 161 pages)
1.2 Source code of Symmetric Geometry and Atomic Motions in Xcode (from Science Robot)
1.3 Source code of Symmetric Geometry and Atomic Motions in Java (from the Swan robot)
The founder delivers lectures regarding Symmetric Geometry including workshop using the textbook.
Step 2: Installing pure motions in a prototype car
with Principles I, II, and III
The team installs the three Principles in a pilot car.
Then, all motions (including omega-mode motions) installed in Science Robot and every pure motions installed in the Swan robot run in the pilot.
The team implements a motion-creation simulator, similar to but more functional than Science Robot, in the firm’s IDE.
Step 3: Installing sensor-based motions in a prototype car
with Principles I, II, and III
The team connects the output of the firm’s sensors with the input of Atomic Motions in the pilot.
Namely, the team implements sensor-based Atomic Motions in the pilot in situations for multiple purposes. At this point, the founder leads the team, explaining how geometrical information from the sensors directly controls Atomic Motions. (Atomic Motions negotiate with the firm’s sensors flawlessly as they did with sonars.)
The team installs push and pull motions in the pilot, even though these motions are not autonomous. (Direction-tracking AM and Motion Reproduction pages) These motions are extremely gentle and user-friendly.
Push and pull motions are useful for these purposes:
(1) In moving the pilot around in the lab. (2) In pulling the pilot from its garage and in pushing it from there. (3) When a teacher teaches the pilot the geometrical relationships (map) of the surroundings so that the map makes the pilot perform super-intelligent tasks. (Spatial Understanding page)
The team practices these implementation tasks, 3.1 – 3.3, mainly in an indoor lab.
Step 4: Running the pilot in the real world
The team takes the pilot to the real world; the team trains the pilot to create incrementally more sophisticated motions in increasingly broader worlds:
4.1 Starting from the lab, driving along the closest streets, and coming back in the lab
4.2 Parking in a parking spot marked by white lines recognizing these lines
4.3 While cruising, recognizing moving people; avoiding moving people; stopping and waiting until people move away
4.4 Practicing parallel parking
4.5 Practicing U-turn
4.6 Practicing three-point turn
4.7 Following another car
4.8 Avoiding another car
Step 4 task development smoothly merges into the firm’s existing driverless-car accomplishments, including street and highway cruising.
MotionLab LLC is an independent, self-funded firm. All of the motions presented in this website and YouTube channel are invented solely by the founder. He solely possesses all of the related intellectual properties.
