SEMA Sees Profit in Aftermarket ADAS

SEMA Sees Profit in Aftermarket ADAS While at the OE level the price of ADAS technologies may be going down, and their availability across various model lines is going up, some still see aftermarket ADAS as necessary well into the future. LAS VEGAS – Compared with the wheel and tire companies, those with aftermarket advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) have had a relatively small presence at the annual SEMA show here. But their numbers are growing, says a top official of SEMA, which recently commissioned a study finding... [Lire la suite]

AROUND THE WORLD IN SELF-DRIVING CARS: ASIA

AROUND THE WORLD IN SELF-DRIVING CARS: ASIA So far in this series, we gave an overview of driverless-car pilot projects across the globe and broke down the testing locations in North America and Europe. This time, we will take a closer look at where these trials are taking place in Asia. This map zooms into Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo, and charts the deployment sites for self-driving vehicles. Shanghai takes a holistic approach Last summer, Shanghai created a 100-square-kilometer closed course for testing of autonomous... [Lire la suite]

Digital disruption in insurance: Cutting through the noise

Digital disruption in insurance: Cutting through the noise Facing digital reality Regulation, product complexity, and insurers’ large balance sheets have kept digital attackers from insurers’ gates. That is changing, but in ways incumbents should embrace. They can flourish in the digital age—if they move swiftly and decisively. Digital technology destroys value. That might sound counterintuitive given the extent to which it can make business systems more efficient—and companies are urged to embrace its many possibilities. Yet new... [Lire la suite]

Apple’s latest AI research explores the problem of mapping systems for self-driving cars

Apple’s latest AI research explores the problem of mapping systems for self-driving cars   Apple’s ambitions to build a self-driving car have reportedly shifted gears over the years, but we know the company is focusing on the software side of the equation. This June, CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone maker is building autonomous systems that could power a range of different vehicles (rather than, say, working on its own Apple-branded SUVs). “We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects,” said Cook. Now,... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous vehicles – Watson IoT helps pave an industry revolution

Autonomous vehicles – Watson IoT helps pave an industry revolution Even the largest and most forward-looking auto manufacturers today were built around the economics of the 20th century, not the 21st. They followed the codes of Detroit and Tokyo more than those of Silicon Valley. But everyone knew disruption was coming—it was just a matter of when. So when companies like Google, Uber and Tesla grew from startups to tech giants—each one tied very much into the future of transportation—the auto-industrial model moved into the... [Lire la suite]

Waymo Vs. Tesla: Who Is Winning The AV Tech War?

AV tech, which is the computer software and hardware that will allow vehicles to actually drive themselves, requires the acquisition and accurate processing of massive amounts of data. Tesla is using information collected from every car produced since October 2016 — the date when cars equipped with the first generation Autopilot suite of sensors went into production. Waymo is relying more on computer simulations. It has racked up nearly 6 billion simulated miles so far, according to The Verge. The Autopilot system collects data... [Lire la suite]
