Google Has Begun Discussions With Top Automakers On Self-Driving Car

Google has begun discussions with most of the world’s top automakers and has assembled a team of traditional and nontraditional suppliers to speed efforts to bring self-driving cars to market by 2020, a Google executive said. “We’d be remiss not to talk to … the biggest auto manufacturers. They’ve got a lot to offer. For us to jump in and say that we can do this better, that’s arrogant” – Chris Urmson, director of Google’s self-driving car project.  Those manufacturers, he said, include General Motors Co, Ford Motor Co, Toyota...

The Connected Car Will Be Commonplace Before 2025

The Connected Car of the future, made of self-healing materials, social media connected and communicating, Wearable and IoT compatible is more or less already here.

At CES 2015, Connected Cars Will Steal the Gadget Spotlight

“CES has become a major launch point for a lot of the big automakers,” said Mark Boyadjis, technology analyst for researcher IHS in Minnetonka, Minnesota. “CES is a way for them to get on a global stage for technology.” The evolution of Ford’s CES exhibit tells the story of the automotive ascent at the trade show that attracts 140,000 visitors. Five years ago, Ford displayed its new Taurus on a 20-foot-by-20-foot piece of carpet. This year, Ford has a two-story display with five vehicles, a wall of digital screens and private...

The Mercedes-Benz F 015: this is what tomorrow's self-driving cars look like

Mercedes-Benz took the wraps off a new concept car here at CES and considering the setting, it's appropriately loaded to the gills with technology. The F 015 Luxury in Motion  is basically a sleek pod with a huge passenger compartment, a fortuitous side effect of an imagined future where we spend most of our times chilling out in cars while they drive us around all by themselves. Mercedes actually calls the cabin "lounge-like," thanks to four rotating seats that can face each other. An array of screens throughout the car let... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving-Vehicle Features Could Represent a $42 Billion Market by 2025

Partially Autonomous Vehicles Are Likely to Hit the Roads in Large Numbers by 2017; One-Fifth of U.S. Drivers Say They Would Pay More Than $5,000 Extra for Features Such as Highway or Urban Autopilot, BCG Study Finds. Powered by surprisingly strong consumer interest, partially autonomous vehicles (AVs) are likely to penetrate the market as early as 2017, followed by a series of enhancements that will make fully self-driving cars a market reality in a decade and a common sight within two decades, according to new research by The...

Nvidia launches Tegra X1, bringing deep neural learning to self-driving cars

Move over, Tegra K1, you’re already obsolete. At a Sunday night press conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang launched a new mobile superchip, the Tegra X1. If Nvidia has its way, the X1 will be the graphics and artificial intelligence engine for the car of tomorrow. The Tegra X1 includes a 256-core “Maxwell” CPU, the same architecture that Nvidia launched last February. Maxwell powers the GTX 980 and GTX 970 chips that the company launched this fall. But the new X1 also includes an 8-core, 64-bit Denver CPU. All told, the new... [Lire la suite]

Will Google become Google Insurance?

As we know, Google is developing a driverless car – and has been for several years. Knowing that Google is slowly working its way into just about everything in our lives, we’re wondering … could Google be working on driverless car insurance for their driverless car? Not so fast, says Rory Joyce with CoverHound.com. Joyce has come up with three very strong reasons why Google will not be offering auto insurance in the future. Why? High opportunity cost since Google would cannibalize their costs per click and, thus, their earnings; ... [Lire la suite]
