Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust

Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust Until recently, the concept of a driverless car seemed like the stuff of science fiction. But much has changed in just a few short years as the technology behind autonomous vehicles has taken huge strides. The cross-country driving Audi, powered by technology from Delphi, drove in autonomous mode 99 percent of the time. The US federal government has also begun to embrace autonomous vehicles as a coming reality. In February 2016, the US... [Lire la suite]

Why Cities Aren’t Ready for the Driverless Car

Why Cities Aren’t Ready for the Driverless Car Urban planners have a lot of infrastructure work to do to make cities safe and practical for autonomous vehicles When it comes to adopting self-driving cars and trucks, the easiest part may well be building them. The far more difficult task will be maintaining our urban transportation infrastructures for autonomous vehicles to be functional, safe and practical. Consider that last year, a modified Audicompleted a 3,400-mile cross-country trip, driving itself 99% of the time. The... [Lire la suite]
