Self-driving car technology: When will the robots hit the road?

Self-driving car technology: When will the robots hit the road? As cars achieve initial self-driving thresholds, some supporters insist that fully autonomous cars are around the corner. But the technology tells a (somewhat) different story. The most recent people targeted for replacement by robots? Car drivers—one of the most common occupations around the world. Automotive players face a self-driving-car disruption driven largely by the tech industry, and the associated buzz has many consumers expecting their next cars to... [Lire la suite]

This is the biggest benefit of connected vehicles for cities: new report

This is the biggest benefit of connected vehicles for cities: new report Siemens’ Global Center of Competence Cities released the report – Cities in the Driving Seat — at last week’s World Cities Summit in Singapore. The greatest benefit is the opportunity for cities to plug gaps in their public transport network, for example between a train station and commuters’ homes. ‘Autonomous vehicles must be part of a wider transformation of urban areas.’- Pete Daw, Urban Development and Environment Director at the...

Tesla will start rolling out its ‘full self-driving’ package in August, Elon Musk says

Tesla will start rolling out its ‘full self-driving’ package in August, Elon Musk says Over the weekend, avid Twitter user Elon Musk said that Tesla’s “long awaited” Version 9 of Autopilot would begin rolling out this August. “To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety,” Musk tweeted. “With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.” This would appear to put Musk on track to achieve the promise he made two years ago to offer “full self-driving” capabilities to Tesla owners by 2019. At the... [Lire la suite]

Why Safe Drivers Aren't Always Charged The Lowest Car Insurance Rates

Why Safe Drivers Aren't Always Charged The Lowest Car Insurance Rates This is almost like dispelling an urban myth, only it’s about car insurance. Specifically, it’s the notion that "safe" drivers – those having unblemished driving records – always pay lower premiums than accident-prone motorists. In fact just the opposite can be true among poorer and less-educated drivers, according to a recent investigation of car-insurance policy pricing conducted by the Consumer Federation of America in Washington, D.C. After... [Lire la suite]

Older Drivers 65+ look for ADAS safety tech when buying cars

Older Drivers 65+ look for ADAS safety tech when buying cars Older drivers are increasingly comfortable with and recognize the benefits of active safety technology, but they are still reluctant to relinquish total control to an autonomous vehicle, according to a nationwide survey by Munich Re, of US of drivers age 65 and older. Approximately two out of three (63 percent) drivers over age 65 intend to purchase their next vehicle with active safety technology. Blind spot detectors (51 percent), a backup camera (43 percent) and... [Lire la suite]

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the automotive industry by storm to drive the development of level-4 and level-5 autonomous vehicles. Why do you think AI has become so popular now, though it has been around since the 1950s? Simply put, the reason behind this explosion of AI is the humongous amount of data that we have available today. With the help of connected devices and services, we are able to collect data in every industry, thus fueling the AI revolution. While... [Lire la suite]

Compulsory ADAS for European trucks set to expand

Compulsory ADAS for European trucks set to expand EC drive to cut HGV kill rates will see more mandating of driver assistance technology, discovers Siegfried Mortkowitz [Mob.Mortkowitz.2015.12.21] Since 1 November, 2015, all new heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) sold in the European Union have had to be equipped with lane departure warning systems (LDWS) and autonomous emergency braking systems (AEBS). Fitting out trucks and buses with these two advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) was mandated in an European Commission (EC)... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles Here at Roadshow, we spend a great deal of time covering the rapidly growing field of self-driving car tech. Because both today's and tomorrow's vehicles offer dramatically varying degrees of automated driving, it became necessary to develop a classification system to describe the progression of these technologies, if only to use as shorthand for understanding their relative capabilities and limitations. SAE International (aka the Society of Automotive... [Lire la suite]
