iDrive Programming Language COMS W4115 Project Proposal Parag Jain pj2171 columbia edu 1 Introduction Cars equipped with a system that is capable of driving from one point to another without input from a human operator have got significant attention from academic commercial defense and government sectors over the past few decades Early prototypes date as far back as late 1970s however important progress only came to be seen in the late 2000s through programs like DARPA Grand Challenge competitions and Google Driverless Car project Some proposed systems depend on infrastructure based guidance systems while more advanced systems propose to simulate human perception and decision making during steering of a car via advanced computer software linked to a range of sensors such as cameras radar and GPS Some of the advantages of Driverless Cars include managing traffic flow to increase road capacity avoid accidents by eliminating driver error relieving vehicle occupants from driving and navigating chores transporting loads in dangerous zones such as battlefields and reducing costs of employing drivers 2 iDrive Programming Language iDrive is a high level programming language that provides basic constructs to develop algorithms for cars to drive without a need for human intervention Currently no such language exists and given the complexity of the paradigm iDrive is extremely useful since it is specialized to accomplish this challenging task The primary focus of iDrive is the abstraction and reduction of non essential or monotonous tasks so that the researchers no longer need to spend time specifying the characteristics of driving and just need to focus on creating intelligent algorithms for developing fully autonomous cars iDrive provides the researcher with a rich set of tools that may be used intuitively to implement algorithms for driving cars Every effort has been made to ensure that the language is intuitive and easy to read and understand 1 3 Language Outline iDrive
