'Grand Theft Auto V' Plays Big Role In Developing Self-Driving Vehicles

We're starting to see more and more driver-less tech hit the streets lately, like Google's self-surveying cars and other companies trying to develop a way for people to not worry so much about getting behind the wheel. But one research firm is apparently using a not-so-traditional tool to teach vehicles the basics - Grand Theft Auto V.

Yep, you read that right. Popular video game Grand Theft Auto V is one of the simulation platforms being used to model driving as much as three-million miles a day, something unobtainable in the real world.

Pakistan arrests 22 after student lynched over blasphemy
Last month Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered blasphemous content be removed from social media, and perpetrators punished. The murdered student has been identified as Mashal Khan , who was accused of posting blasphemous messages on social media.

The more surprising takeaway here is that GTA V in this instance isn't a second-rate alternative to simulation software created for the objective of testing autonomous driving software - it proves an incredibly advanced testing platform, because of the care taken in its open-world game design. Simulations can help provide better driving conditions, and Grand Theft Auto V seems to do it better than most. Engineer Davide Bacchet with the self-driving startup NIO told Bloomberg that it's just "not practical" to rely exclusively on the public tests to teach their software everything it needs to know to rise to an acceptable standard, adding that the ability to replay the same exact scenario over and over again is key for learning the correct course of action. "With simulation, you can run the same scenario over and over again for infinite times, then test it again".

As automakers work to get self-driving cars on public roadways, they're realizing that real-world testing might not be enough.

Mike Evans' 5th-Year Contract Option Picked Up by Buccaneers
This is the first step in the right direction for a franchise that has been struggling throughout the decade. It is also worth noting that the Buccaneers had until the May 3 deadline to pick up Evan's fifth-year option.

Alain Kornhauser, a Princeton University professor who advises its Autonomous Vehicle Engineering team, added that GTA 5 "is the richest virtual environment that we could extract data from".

It's a fascinating system, even with a game where running over people regularly occurs.
