Our latest software release is focused on safety, reliability, and comfort. See the updates in action and watch a Cruise deftly maneuvering lane changes on a bustling street.
The latest software release has rolled out to the driverless fleet, containing improvements in these areas:
Shipped STA v25 that improves prediction of cut-ins by other vehicles by another 73%.
Shipped TSEL v16 with up to 70% improvements in AVs ability to quickly accelerate, reach, and maintain legal speed limits, especially on higher speed roads.
Shipped MIR v2 that increases assertiveness and confidence while changing lanes by 16%, and increases comfort during lane changes by 10%.
Shipped AV Seeds v5 that simplifies vehicle trajectory generation resulting in overall smoother trajectories, especially around sharp turns.
Improved the vehicle’s ability to accelerate faster on higher speed roads from a stop improving overall safety and comfort as the AV merges into high speed traffic quickly.
Released a new ML-based model for recognizing the boundaries of construction zones which improves detection by 83%.
Shipped DLA v5 and KSE v15, which improve speed estimation of high-speed vehicles by up to 90%.
Shipped RadarRPN v1, which improves detection of long distance & high-speed objects ahead of the AV by +17%.
Shipped Rigel v1.6, which improves tracking of long distance & high-speed objects in the AV's lateral field of view by ~7%; for better turns onto busy high-speed roads.
Improved sensor calibration diagnostics by 60% resulting in fewer trip interruptions.
Improved reliability of Remote Operators tools when assisting the vehicle reducing the resolution times. Also improved our ability for RA to assist at high speeds.
Shipped TREX v4, which improves passenger pick up and drop offs and smoother AV turns resulting in better rider comfort.
As part of LPC v8, improved how the AV considers nearby obstacles, resulting in smoother acceleration and braking at low speeds.
Enabled right turns onto high-speed roads, significantly improving trip times in suburban areas.
Enabled right turns from yield signs unlocking additional additional routes and faster travel times.
Released Android App to allow android users access to the service.
Statistics measuring the percentage of improvement are based on internal benchmarks and metrics.
