Self-Driving Cars and Insurance

Self-Driving Cars and Insurance   HE TOPIC Each new generation of cars is equipped with more automated features and crash avoidance technology. Indeed, many of today’s high-end cars and some mid-priced ones already have options, such as blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warnings and lane-departure warnings. These will be the components of tomorrow’s fully automated vehicles. At least one car manufacturer has promised to have fully automated cars available by the end of the decade. Except that the number of crashes will... [Lire la suite]

prospective : Will future automotive products still need wheels ?

Will future automotive products still need wheels ? It is very interesting to see what is happening in the robotics research labs. Seeing this, almost everyone thinks aboutmilitary applications (that is why DARPA gives money for those researches), about industrial applications where human beings may be in danger (nuclear industry, ...), and also about space quest (Mars, Moon, and further). But think, would is be interesting for individual mobility ? :. invalid persons artificial arms and legs (medicine application). mobility... [Lire la suite]

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to... [Lire la suite]
