Flux Auto - self-driving

Tesla has won plaudits and orders for its recently revealed automated Semi. But it’s far from alone in the market, and Bengaluru’s Flux Auto believes its location provides an advantage the US-headquartered titan simply cannot match: India’s “dusty, pothole-ridden” roads. As quoted in a report from The Economic Times of India, Flux Auto founder Pranav Manpuria believes the country’s poor roads are the ideal testing ground for self-driving technology. He said: “For us, the more chaotic the roads are, the more data we get and the more trained our algorithm becomes. Indian roads are helping us to make a far sturdier and sophisticated algorithm for our self-driving technology.” Despite his company being less than a year old, Flux Auto’s first truck is due to pilot next month. Quite a feat.
