Bringing AI to Mobility

At Alliance Innovation Lab – Silicon Valley (AIL–SV), we bring artificial intelligence (AI) to mobility. From developing autonomous driving systems to designing life on board experiences, our researchers apply AI technology to improve mobility for everybody.

Our expertise

Autonomous Driving

Autonomous driving and intelligent vehicle systems will be a cornerstone technology for a safer, seamless and more accessible future of mobility.

At AIL-SV, we are exploring the cutting edge of artificial intelligence and robotics, including sensing, perception, mapping, prediction, planning, decision making, and control, to lay the groundwork for the future of mobility.

Vehicle Intelligence

For autonomous vehicles (AVs) to seamlessly integrate into society, they must successfully interact with other road users, predict how interactions will unfold, and learn to adapt to different societal norms across the world.

At AIL-SV, we are experts in Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes that we use to solve complex decision-making scenarios, with the goal of efficient behavior and harmonious interaction.

The Social Impact of Autonomous Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles will live in a world occupied by human road users: drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, joggers, pedestrians, protestors, construction workers, police, emergency vehicles, and the occasional horseback riders, to name just a few of the roles people fulfill on the street. We consider the impact autonomous vehicles will have on other road users, as well as the broader impact on society.

At AIL-SV, a variety of social scientists consider the impact of AVs, and the safety of our roads.

Smart City

Cities today are adopting smart city technologies to face a wide range of challenges, aiming to make themselves more livable, sustainable, and equitable.

AIL-SV is bringing its expertise around data and AI to work with communities and city governments to address today’s mobility concerns and prepare for tomorrow’s.

Materials Informatics

As we shift to new powertrains, the development of new materials for our products has become even more important.

Working with our partners at NASA's Ames Research Center, AIL-SV uses AI and big-data driven Materials Informatics to identify and exploit new materials more efficiently, especially for electric-vehicle batteries.

Our method

Our research is always driven by engineering new hardware and software solutions to enrich people’s lives. We work in an evolutionary process to uncover new knowledge by observing how people interact with technological artifacts around them. Then we design and build the hardware in our workshop, the software in the lab, integrate both and test the prototypes on the road.

At AIL-SV, we build novel hardware and software artifacts for mobility solutions and test them in real world traffic.
