Just add water – Drive.ai video demonstrates its self-driving technology in the rain

Drive.ai, the Silicon Valley firm creating artificial intelligence software for autonomous vehicles, has released a video that demonstrates its self-driving technology being used in rainy conditions. 

The video, taken in Mountain View, California, shows the firm’s system driving fully autonomously as it navigates the streets at night and in heavy rain – highlighting the need for self-driving vehicles to be able to handle different driving conditions.

“Any successful self-driving technology will need to address countless unpredictable situations and a wide range of driving conditions, yet few are able to today,” said the company in a blog post.

“As one of the first startups in California with an Autonomous Vehicle Testing Permit, we are prioritizing our responsibility to develop technology that is safe in all conditions,” said Drive.ai.
