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...

Toyota promises driverless cars on roads by 2020

Toyota has become the latest car manufacturer to test a driverless vehicle on a public road. The car, a modified Lexus GS, was tested on Tokyo's Shuto Expressway, where it carried out a range of automated manoeuvres. These included merging into highways, changing lanes and keeping inter-vehicular distance. Toyota said it aimed to launch related products "by around 2020", when Tokyo is due to host the Olympic Games. To read more : http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-34464450

Google’s Driverless Cars Are Cruising the Streets of California

Some say they look like koalas. Others say they’re the smiling face of the future. And if you live in California, you’re already sharing the road with them. Google had told the world that its line of itty-bitty self-driving vehicles was poised to hit the roads in summer. Well, they’re here. Last week, a few prototype vehicles started cruising around Mountain View, Calif., and the folks at Google are eager to see how the public receives them. The Next Step Although the self-driving cars are out of the garage and onto the roadways,... [Lire la suite]

Why Would Apple Make an Electric Car, Not a Driverless One?

Apple is doubling down on developing an electric car, and has assigned a 2019 ship-date to its secret automotive project, code-named Titan, according to a report this week in The Wall Street Journal. The latest news builds on earlier reports that indicate Apple is increasingly committed to entering the car market at a time when many believe the industry faces unprecedented disruption. Earlier this year, Apple lawyers met with officials at California's Department of Motor Vehicles and Apple engineers quietly scoped out a 2,100-acre... [Lire la suite]
