Hanging out in Volvo’s “Concept 26,” a reinvented seat for a self-driving car

Watch this video on The Scene.     When people imagine the future of self-driving cars, they might think of steering wheel-less pods with swivel chairs and a lounge-like cabin atmosphere. Just program your destination into the vehicle and take a seat, as blissfully unaware of the ensuing traffic as you would be on a train. But Volvo doesn’t agree with that vision, at least at this point.  Company executives maintained that people really do want to drive—they just don’t want to drive when driving is boring....

Laser Breakthrough Could Speed the Rise of Self-Driving Cars

Google's self-driving car relies on a roof-mounted LIDAR sensor to see the world around it.   The eyes of a self-driving car are called LIDAR sensors. LIDAR is a portmanteau of “light” and “radar.” In essence, these sensors monitor their surroundings by shining a light on an object and measuring the time needed for it to bounce back. They work well enough, but they aren’t without their drawbacks. Today’s self-driving cars typically use LIDARs that are quite large and expensive. Google, for instance, used $80,000 LIDARs with...

A new patent reveals how Google's self driving cars could talk to pedestrians

As Google works towards the dream of the total driverless car, one of the problems that has been cropping up is that the vehicles are, by design, very defensive drivers. This can leave them stuck at four-way intersections where a little bit of aggression is required before other cars will make space on the road. It can throw off the humans around them, who are prone to rear-ending a vehicle that stops a little too courteously. And it can result in speeding tickets for, well, driving too slow. Earlier this week Google... [Lire la suite]

Researcher Hacks Self-driving Car Sensors

By Mark Harris The multi-thousand-dollar laser ranging (lidar) systems that most self-driving cars rely on to sense obstacles can be hacked by a setup costing just $60, according to a security researcher. “I can take echoes of a fake car and put them at any location I want,” says Jonathan Petit, Principal Scientist at Security Innovation, a software security company. “And I can do the same with a pedestrian or a wall.” Using such a system, attackers could trick a self-driving car into thinking something is directly...
