An inside-out approach to preventing vehicle hacks

As the auto industry evolves beyond simple one-time software deployment, it’s time to develop end-to-end cyber security solutions. Increasingly complex automotive systems pose serious development and security challenges. Today’s vehicle system engineers are faced with millions of lines of code – many times more than the average passenger aircraft. At the same time, a growing number of features and functions are being placed on a single electronic control unit (ECU). The resulting complexity of consolidation and mix of critical and...

Why the Rise of Self-Driving Vehicles Will Actually Increase Car Ownership

Why the Rise of Self-Driving Vehicles Will Actually Increase Car Ownership It’s been a long time coming. For years Waymo (formerly known as Google Chauffeur) has been diligently developing, driving, testing and refining its fleets of various models of self-driving cars. Now Waymo is going big. The company recently placed an order for several thousand new Chrysler Pacifica minivansand next year plans to launch driverless taxis in a number of US cities. This deal raises one of the biggest unanswered questions about autonomous... [Lire la suite]

Zipline launches the world’s fastest commercial delivery drone

The California-based startup’s new machine takes to the skies just as the US is about to loosen rules governing drone operations. Credit : Zipline A couple of years ago, Zipline created a national drone delivery system to ship blood and drugs to remote medical centers in Rwanda. Now it has developed what it claims is the world’s swiftest commercial delivery drone, with a top speed of 128 kilometers an hour (a hair shy of 80 miles per hour). Zipline is hoping its new fixed-wing aerial robot, which is both speedier and easier to... [Lire la suite]

After fatal Uber and Tesla crashes, self-driving car tech companies band together

  The autonomous car industry has a perception problem — and now a group of related companies has banded together to try to solve it. Uber's fatal crash last month was the first self-driving car accident to kill a pedestrian. Then a Tesla Model X in autopilot mode left the driver dead after a fiery crash into a California highway barrier. Following its deadly accident in Tempe, Arizona, Uber halted all its self-driving testing, as did companies such as Nvidia and Toyota. A group of tech and transportation companies involved in...
