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. IBM released a study, "Automotive 2025: Industry without borders," amassing interviews with 175 executives from automotive OEMs, suppliers, and other leaders in 21 countries and found that by 2025 cars will be able to learn, heal, drive and socialise with other vehicles (V2V) and their surrounding environment (V2I). "By 2025, the industry will not only recreate our... [Lire la suite]

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]

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?

NTSB forum puts drowsy driving in the spotlight

The National Transportation Safety Board is ringing an alarm over drowsy driving. Safety officials believe it's just as big of a threat as drunk driving.
