China slashes auto import tariffs in boost to German automakers, Tesla

SHANGHAI/BEIJING — China will steeply cut import tariffs for automobiles and car parts, opening up greater access to the world's largest auto market amid an easing of trade tensions with the United States.

Electric Bus vs Autonomous Shuttle vs Ride Sharing: What Is The Future Of Public Transportation?

Cities are growing like never before. By 2035, more than 2 billion more people will have moved to cities, according to a report by The Guardian. Cities are already drowning in congestion from private cars, forcing cities like London to impose additional fees on cars entering city centers. Now US cities on both coasts — Boston and Seattle — are considering congestion charges of their own as a way to reduce the number of cars competing for space in those cities. Fewer cars would also help reduce carbon emissions. ... [Lire la suite]

Driving Force - A Swedish Startup Aims To Solve The Mapping Problem In The Driverless Car Era

There was a time - and it wasn’t that long ago - when I found my way around the UK capital by using a book called London A to Z. When I wanted to find a particular street, I would look it up in the index, ascertain the grid reference and then flick through to the relevant page of the guide, where a map would be waiting for me. Today, of course, I’m much more likely to check out the street on Google Street View before I leave the house and then, once I’ve set off, use one of the map apps on my smartphone to guide me from the nearest...

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans In a little over two years, a fleet of driverless cars will make its way from Oxford to London, completing the entire journey from start to finish without human intervention, including on urban streets and motorways. Organisers of the government-backed project, announced on Monday, still expect to have a human in the driving seat. But as the cars communicate, update on hazards, and automatically react, is the time coming when a human driver is not just redundant but an... [Lire la suite]

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars?

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars? When you're sitting in the driver's seat at 60mph on a rain-lashed motorway, covering your eyes would normally be a dangerous, if not downright suicidal move. Putting on a virtual reality headset, obscuring the view of the road altogether, might seem even crazier. But that's exactly what I did recently. To start with, I was looking at a computer simulation of the motorway in front of me. Then the road disappeared altogether, the car took off, and I began flying through an alien... [Lire la suite]
