How China will help fuel the revolution in autonomous vehicles

How China will help fuel the revolution in autonomous vehicles Self-driving cars could steer China’s automotive industry into the passing lane. From driverless taxis to automated cargo trucks, autonomous vehicles (AVs) will change the nature of on-road driving and, in the process, revolutionize the automotive and mobility industries. Within this mix of opportunity and uncertainty, we believe AV players (from components vendors to mobility service providers) could earn trillions in revenues in China. Fundamentally...

Tesla’s full self-driving computer is now in all new cars and a next-gen chip is already ‘halfway done’

Tesla’s full self-driving computer is now in all new cars and a next-gen chip is already ‘halfway done’ The Tesla  computer, a new custom chip designed to enable full self-driving capabilities, is now in all new Model 3, X and S vehicles, CEO Elon Musk said during the company’s Autonomy Day. Tesla switched over from Nvidia’s Drive platform to its own custom chip for the Model S and X about a month ago and for the Model 3 about 10 days ago, Musk said. “All cars being produced all have the hardware...

Self-Driving Car Fleets: Transportation As A Service

Self-Driving Car Fleets: Transportation As A Service The automotive industry is an anomaly. The industry has annual worldwide sales of over $1.5 trillion. It’s dominated by a dozen powerful conglomerates each with distinct consumer brands. And, so far, it’s almost completely avoided the digital age and the effects this new age has on business models. All three of these unique traits will change over the next decade. The rise of self-driving cars will remake the automotive industry, devastating most companies, and enriching a... [Lire la suite]

Experience Self-Driving Trucks in India with Flux Auto

Experience Self-Driving Trucks in India with Flux Auto One of the great joys of teaching self-driving cars at Udacity is watching the amazing things our students build. I’m based in Silicon Valley, but our students come from all over the world, and I have the opportunity on a daily basis to experience the truly global nature of this transportation revolution. Case in point: Flux Auto. One of our Udacity self-driving car graduates, Shilpaj Bhalerao, is the tech lead for a small team building self-driving trucks in... [Lire la suite]

AI in Auto Insurance – Current Applications

AI in Auto Insurance – Current Applications KPMG estimated the size of the automotive insurance is expected to shrink by 70% due to the rise in demand for autonomous cars and the shift in liability then being placed on the car manufacturer. With the rise of AI in most sectors, it follows that AI would find its way into the automotive insurance world. AI may allow car insurance companies to keep up with an evolving consumer base that is looking for faster service, faster payouts, and policy prices... [Lire la suite]

The road to artificial intelligence in mobility—smart moves required

The road to artificial intelligence in mobility—smart moves required Artificial intelligence (AI) is the word on everyone’s lips. But in the automotive industry today, many products and services being labeled as such are in fact reliant on a form of advanced analytics (evolving from conventional algorithms) that enables those features—for example, predictive maintenance in manufacturing. Theories of AI have existed since 1950. However, AI itself gained wider functional applicability only in the past few decades, with the rise... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous vehicles can drive the future of mobility

Autonomous vehicles can drive the future of mobility Hong Kong and Singapore, like many cities across the world, are grappling with growing congestion, overcrowded transport and roadside pollution. Add into the mix limited land supply, and it’s clear that the prioritization of electric vehicles and connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) are just what these two cities need. Technology is changing the way we move from point A to B – the most advanced CAVs can communicate with each other and the surrounding environment without the... [Lire la suite]

MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING

MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING ARK expects that before 2020 fully autonomous vehicles will become commercially available, enabling the rise and rapid growth of autonomous taxi networks. These networks should decrease the cost and inconvenience of point-to-point mobility dramatically, spurring a transformative boost in economic productivity. As a result, the traditional automotive industry may be subsumed by mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platforms that could become one of the most valuable... [Lire la suite]

Ford’s ‘self-driving’ vans are now delivering food in Miami

Ford’s ‘self-driving’ vans are now delivering food in Miami Food delivery workers are some of the most overworked and underpaid people in the US — and now you can add “soon to be endangered” to that list. Food couriers have recently joined truck and taxi drivers in the category of jobs that are most likely to be made obsolete by self-driving technology. For evidence, look no further than Ford’s current experiments with self-driving delivery vans in Miami. Ford has been using Miami as a test bed for its self-driving... [Lire la suite]

Uber won’t be charged with fatal self-driving crash, says prosecutor

Uber won’t be charged with fatal self-driving crash, says prosecutor Who is criminally liable when a self-driving car fatally strikes a pedestrian? Not the company that built and tested the car — at least not when it comes to Uber’s fatal crash in Tempe, Arizona last March, which killed 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg. Uber won’t be charged with a crime, according to a letter, first reported on by Quartz, from Yavapai County Attorney Sheila Polk, the prosecutor who was temporarily in charge of the case. “After...
