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]

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.

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.

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...

Uber planned on running 13,000 self-driving taxis by 2019 According to court documents unsealed last week, Uber envisioned running 75,000 autonomous vehicles in commercial applications across a geographic spread of 13 cities – all by 2022.
