NASA creates space GPS navigation on the basis of artificial intelligence


In modern realities if you were lost or you can't just find the right direction to the place, necessary for you, in the city, new to you, you open Yandex.Maps, Google Maps or any other available cartographical application on the basis of GPS and, following several advice, you find the necessary route of the movement. Unfortunately, in space of such luxury nobody will provide to you. For example, if you are lost on the Moon or on the way to Mars, then, most likely, you the end. Experts from Frontier Development Lab (division of NASA) together with engineers of the Intel company conduct development of the solution of this problem.

Researchers have found an easy way for navigation on other planets of Solar system, but work of a method requires the help of artificial intelligence. They have presented the vision of interplanetary navigation on the taking place action organized by the Intel company.

of GPS (Global Positioning System) is the system of global positioning. She represents the satellite system of navigation providing measurement of distance, time and defining location in the world system of coordinates. Satellites calculate your location and transfer information to application of your mobile device, giving the hint in the choice of the right direction, for example, to recently opened restaurant. The piece is very convenient. One problem - it works only at Earth.

As installation of similar satellite systems around other space bodies in Solar system is represented is unreal difficult and expensive prospect, NASA and Intel have decided to develop other method of the planetary navigation system.

according to developers if "to feed" AI huge number of images of a surface of a space body, then artificial intelligence will be able to determine position of the person on this space body by an environment in which the person will be. Proceeding from it, the system will be able to lay the necessary route of the movement to this or that point of appointment.

For check of technology researchers from Frontier Development Lab and Intel have created the virtual Moon. The digital satellite has been created on the basis of 2,4 million artificial images of a surface of the Moon what she would see each other from rover camera if that was on her surface. Then remove have shown AI which, having put all images, has removed an overall picture of the virtual satellite. Within the presentation the technology of space positioning has shown quite high level of efficiency and accuracy for navigation. further developers want to make by

the same, but already with a real, but not virtual space body - Mars. According to experts, they have enough satellite images of a surface of the planet to create rather effective GPS navigation. If this is true, then the first Martian colonists will definitely not get lost on the Red planet. Search of the necessary direction it will be required to take only the picture of the surrounding area, and a sist
