Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking

Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking Current trucking technology such as telematics and fleet management solutions are key factors in the autonomous trucking revolution that could reshape the logistics industry. Industry analysts IHS Automotive estimate that sales of autonomous vehicles could reach 60,000 per year by 2035, or about 15 percent of Class 8-weight segment sales, according to a report from the American Transportation Research Institute. However, that does not take into account... [Lire la suite]

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say.   Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that are hidden around a corner – a... [Lire la suite]

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many accidents such as recent UBER accident

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many automous car accidents such as the recent UBER accident We all saw videos of the UBER VOLVO accident. The dashcam video shows that visibility conditions were very poor and that the pedestrian is dressed in black (pullover) and crosses a road at night without any light and out of pedestrian crossing areas. This attitude is pure suicade and you wouldn't teach your children to behave this way. But even if this pedestrian shouldn't have been in the... [Lire la suite]

Volvo looks to supply Uber with up to 24,000 self-driving cars

Volvo looks to supply Uber with up to 24,000 self-driving cars Uber plans to buy up to 24,000 self-driving cars from Volvo, marking the transition of the U.S. firm from an app used to summon a taxi to the owner and operator of a fleet of cars. The nonbinding framework deal could offer San Francisco-based Uber a way to overcome setbacks at its autonomous driving division in Silicon Valley’s race to perfect self-driving systems.     Combining Volvo’s cars with Uber’s self-driving system builds on their nearly three-year...

The Future of European Transit: Driverless and Utilitarian

The Future of European Transit: Driverless and Utilitarian On the outskirts of Berlin, Michael Barillère-Scholz is testing a driverless vehicle that is neither sleek nor futuristic. The machine is boxy and painted white. Its top speed barely reaches 20 miles per hour. The self-driving vehicle is a shuttle with room for 12 passengers. Mr. Barillère-Scholz, who leads the driverless research team at Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s largest train and bus operator, and his team have been testing the vehicle around a local office park. Later... [Lire la suite]

10 Million Self-Driving Cars Will Hit The Road By 2020 -- Here's How To Profit

10 Million Self-Driving Cars Will Hit The Road By 2020 -- Here's How To Profit Given the advanced state of driverless technologies and the amount of money being poured into the sector, there is little question—make that, no question at all—that within 10 years, driverless cars will be the norm. The implications are immense and widespread. There are currently about 1.4 billion cars on the road. Many of those cars, and eventually all, are going to be replaced by self-driving vehicles. Car sharing is already growing in popularity.... [Lire la suite]

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time Phoenix, Arizona is home to the world's first fully driverless robot taxi service. Google sibling Waymo now has driverless cars on public roads, with no one behind the wheel. The autonomous Chrysler Pacifica minivans had kept safety drivers onboard, ready to take over in emergencies or when the vehicle fails to navigate on its own. But Waymo has let its cars off the leash in Phoenix, AZ, giving them permission to drive entirely on their own. A... [Lire la suite]
