The benefits of self-driving technology for cars and trucks is obvious, but the applications for autonomous technology on vehicles of the two-wheeled variety are a little harder to fathom. All the weather and road rash exposure of a motorcycle, but none of the fun? What's the point? Turns out there's a very good one, and it's all about improving the safety of driverless cars.

If I have to choose between flying cars and self driving car, which one should I choose?

If I have to choose between flying cars and self driving car, which one should I choose?

Flying cars are unlikely to ever become a reality.

First, cost. Aircraft cost typically $200,000. A flying car would be at least that expensive, if not more. remember, it has to have a full set of everything a car needs, then it needs a full set of everything an aircraft needs.

Second, license, you need a pilot’s license to fly one. That costs typically $8–12,000.

Third, weight. Aircraft have to be very light to fly, and adding all the parts to make an aircraft also work as a car makes it too heavy. See duplication in #1 as well.

Fourth. Maintenance. ALL maintenance and repairs on aircraft have to be performed by FAA certified mechanics. They do not come cheap. In addition, many things on aircraft have a limited lifespan, like engines. Most have to be replaced or overhauled at 2,000–2,500 hours. The going rate to rebuild a 4 cylinder aircraft engine is $20,000 to $27,000.

Fifth, insurance. It would be incredibly expensive. Imaging getting into a minor accident in a parking lot. The repairs are going to be staggeringly expensive, see #4.

In reality, it’s cheaper to drive to the airport, fly to your destination in a real aircraft, then rent a car at the far end.

The Car of the Future May Have...Legs

The Car of the Future May Have...Legs


Automobiles have played a huge part in American history, but the rise of the gasoline-powered horseless carriage was not preordained. Cars as we know them evolved in response to a specific set of circumstances. Given the proper impetus, they might easily—radically—evolve again.

By the turn of the 20th century, inventors had built engines run by steam and electricity as well as gas. Each had crippling drawbacks. Steam-powered cars took a long time to fire up; electric cars were slow and couldn’t go far on a battery charge; and gasoline-powered cars were dirty and required tedious hand-cranking. With every product equally bad, market dominance became a matter of affordability. When Henry Ford introduced the Model T in 1908, he made gasoline cars so cheap that they beat out the competition.

A century later, we may be at another turning point, ready for something safer, faster, less intrusive, and more economical. If we were to begin again, what would leading thinkers outside the auto industry, unburdened by tradition, come up with?

Global and China UBI Market, 2021- Market-based Reform of Car Insurance Rates Will Bring Unprecedented Opportunities

Global and China UBI Market, 2021- Market-based Reform of Car Insurance Rates Will Bring Unprecedented Opportunities

The "Global and China UBI Industry Report, 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets'offering.

Starting in China in 2012, later than in foreign countries, UBI is primarily developed by mainly referring to foreign products and mature models. Auto insurance, always the largest subsector of property insurance in China, reported original premium income of RMB683.455 billion in 2016, up 10.3% from a year earlier and accounting for 78% of property-insurance original premium income. The reform of commercial car insurance rate management system was piloted from May 2015 and the market-oriented reform of car insurance rate was staged nationwide on July 1, 2016. Also, the rapid evolution of automotive IoT (Internet of Things) gives great impetus to the automotive UBI industry. The Chinese automotive UBI market is expected to value RMB201.8 billion in 2021 at a CAGR of 43.0%.

China's UBI models are led by the "entities + insurers" one. Entities include OEMs, connected car firms, independent service providers, and big data companies.

1. OEMs + Insurers: OEMs usually cooperate with third parties and insurers in UBI field, represented by SAIC Motor + Cihon + CPIC. SAIC Motor and CPIC give a personalized quote for car insurance on auto models carrying OnStar according to consumers' driving habits, mileage, and other factors. Cihon is responsible for data analysis and insurance model development.

2. Connected Car Platforms + Insurers: Connected car platforms are dominated by Aftermarket TSP (telematics service provider) in UBI field. For example, the insurer (PICC), via Shenzhen Autonet's connected car platform, provides car owners with one-key insurance claim, quick settlement of claim, and inquiry of insurance status, and develops floating car insurance business.

3. Independent Service Providers + Insurers: Independent service providers usually acquire customer data via APP + OBD to work with insurers to develop UBI and at the same time provide customers with car maintenance and other services.

4. Big Data + Insurers: In UBI field, some insurers, on the one hand, have self-run platforms, such as Zhong An Online P&C Insurance's O2O car insurance, and on the other hand, co-develop platforms with Internet businesses or other connected car firms. For instance, CPIC organized Internet companies with Baidu and invested in Atzuche. Big data companies employ various methods in UBI field, like Beijing Jingyou Times Information Technology, a provider of database and risk models.

South Korea: Hyundai wins licence to test self-driving car on local roads

South Korea: Hyundai wins licence to test self-driving car on local roads

Hyundai Motor has received a license from the South Korea transport ministry for testing its autonomous-driving car on local roads, a move to facilitate the automaker’s plan to commercialize driverless vehicles by 2020.

Korea’s largest carmaker plans to test a self-driving Genesis premium sedan, equipped with GPS and the latest sensors, as early as April. The company said it will mobilize more resources to develop fully-autonomous vehicles before its global rivals do and capitalize on this rapidly emerging auto segment.

“We have tested our self-driving vehicles several times before in controlled environments with no other cars on the road,” a Hyundai Motor spokesman said. “With this new license, we will be able to test the vehicles in real traffic conditions on designated sections of expressways and regular roads. We will make every effort to become a global leader in this highly-promising segment.”

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport held a ceremony at the Sejong Government Complex to issue the nation’s first license for an autonomous vehicle and license plate to Hyundai Motor. Both license and plate are valid for five years.

On Feb. 12, the automaker filed applications, asking the ministry to grant a license for its Genesis premium sedan and licenses for two drivers who must be in the car at all times it is on the road. The ministry had previously revised the Automobile Management Act, making it possible for self-driving vehicles to be tested on roads and highways.

The Korea Transportation Safety Authority verified that the autonomous Genesis sedan met all the requirements set by the law.

The vehicle is equipped with features including traffic jam assist, highway driving assist and narrow passage assist. It can easily be switched to manual mode when needed, meaning that a person holding the license has to sit in the driver’s seat while it is on the road.

Parcel delivery The future of last mile

Parcel delivery The future of last mile

last km delivery

Currently subject to significant disruption, last-mile delivery, especially of parcels, is getting a great deal of attention in the media and from investors – rightfully so. The cost of global parcel delivery, excluding pickup, line-haul, and sorting, amounts to ~ EUR 70 billion, with China, Germany, and the United States accounting for more than 40 percent of the market. However, the market is not just large, it is also highly dynamic, with growth rates in 2015 ranging between 7 and 10 percent in mature markets, such as Germany or the US, and almost 300 percent in developing markets such as India. This means that, in mature markets, volumes could double over the next ten years, reaching roughly 5 billion and 25 billion parcels per year in Germany and the US respectively.1 The largest driver of this growth is not surprisingly e-commerce, which has shifted market share from the B2B to the B2C segment. B2C once made up ~ 40 percent of the market, but has since exceeded 50 percent in a number of countries, including Germany. In addition, the last mile’s hefty share in total parcel delivery cost – often reaching or even exceeding 50 percent – makes it a key process step for those seeking to gain a competitive advantage. At the same time, it is precisely at the last mile that many incumbents are struggling, as they often shoulder significant labor cost disadvantages and therefore, all else being equal, competitive disadvantages. Size, growth, and the difficult positioning of incumbents alone already provide ample grounds for studying the future development of the last mile. But there is one more critical factor supporting the case for taking a closer look: the last mile is seeing disruption from new business models that address customer demand for ever faster delivery, as well as new technologies that are likely to reach market readiness over the next ten years, including drones and autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs). Before we jump into the details of our vision of the last mile, we would like to first summarize the three key hypotheses that we later develop and discuss in the remainder of this document.
