Explainable artificial intelligence for autonomous driving: An overview and guide for future research directions

  title={Explainable artificial intelligence for autonomous driving: An overview and guide for future research directions},
  author={S. Atakishiyev and Mohammad Salameh and Hengshuai Yao and Randy Goebel},
—Autonomous driving has achieved a significant mile- stone in research and development over the last decade. There is increasing interest in the field as the deployment of self- operating vehicles promises safer and more ecologically friendly transportation systems. With the rise of computationally powerful artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, autonomous vehicles can sense their environment with high precision, make safe real- time decisions, and operate reliably without human intervention… 

A Role for HTN Planning in Increasing Trust in Autonomous Driving

The adoption of autonomous vehicles mainly depends on the driver's trust in the vehicle's capabilities. Influencing trust requires giving it a central role when designing the vehicle's

A Review of Applications of Artificial Intelligence in Heavy Duty Trucks

Different applications of artificial intelligence in heavy-duty trucks, such as fuel consumption prediction, emissions estimation, self-driving technology, and predictive maintenance using various machine learning and deep learning methods, are discussed.

Real-Time Automatic Wall Detection and Localization based on Side Scan Sonar Images

The method proposed in this paper is a real-time automatic target recognition based on Side Scan Sonar images to detect and localize a harbor’s wall using transfer learning.

Universal Adversarial Attacks on the Raw Data From a Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar

This work presents three possible attack methods that are particularly suitable for the radar domain and calculates universal adversarial attack patches for all sorts of radar applications based on NN, the first work that deals with calculating universal patches on raw radar data, of great importance especially for interference analysis.

ThirdEye: Attention Maps for Safe Autonomous Driving Systems

This paper evaluates the effectiveness of different configurations of ThirdEye at predicting simulation-based injected failures induced by both unknown conditions (adverse weather and lighting) and unsafe/uncertain conditions created with mutation testing and shows that, overall, ThirdEye can predict 98% misbehaviours, outperforming a state-of-the-art failure predictor for autonomous vehicles.

Human-Vehicle Cooperation on Prediction-Level: Enhancing Automated Driving with Human Foresight

An approach is implemented that lets a human driver quickly and intuitively supplement scene predictions to an autonomous driving system by gaze that has the potential to improve a system’s foresighted driving abilities and make autonomous driving more trustable, comfortable and personalized.

Perception as prediction using general value functions in autonomous driving applications

We propose and demonstrate a framework called perception as prediction for autonomous driving that uses general value functions (GVFs) to learn predictions. Perception as prediction learns
