MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING

MOBILITY-AS-A-SERVICE: WHY SELF-DRIVING CARS COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING ARK expects that before 2020 fully autonomous vehicles will become commercially available, enabling the rise and rapid growth of autonomous taxi networks. These networks should decrease the cost and inconvenience of point-to-point mobility dramatically, spurring a transformative boost in economic productivity. As a result, the traditional automotive industry may be subsumed by mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) platforms that could become one of the most valuable... [Lire la suite]

The Cities Where Autonomous Vehicles Would Be Most Practical

The Cities Where Autonomous Vehicles Would Be Most Practical It’s widely assumed that it’s only a matter of time before fleets of autonomous vehicles begin crisscrossing America’s roadways. Some urban areas, though, make better markets for the new technology than others. Driving conditions, traffic patterns and demographics are just a few of the factors determining how ideal a city is for autonomous vehicles. A new report from INRIX, a Seattle-based traffic data collection and research firm, offers insight on where the... [Lire la suite]

The Building Blocks of Autonomous Tech

The Building Blocks of Autonomous Tech   Mimicking the many things humans do while driving requires a complex blend of technologies. An array of several sensors per vehicle is needed to monitor a 360° field of view around the car. Fast networks that send data to the electronic controls are required to analyze inputs and make decisions about steering, braking and speed. OEMs, Tier 1s and other suppliers are vying with and in some cases partnering with and acquiring a relentless wave of start-ups and industry disruptors... [Lire la suite]

Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way

Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way Autonomous vehicles might be exempt in the future from some of the safety standards put in place by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) if changes that accommodate this new type of road vehicle sees the light of day. Automotive giants such as GM have called for legislative changes that would allow "the full deployment of self-driving vehicles" which, at the moment, have to be equipped with a steering wheel, pedals, and mirrors, although...

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5 Waymo and Tesla both have the same goal toward fully L5 driverless self driving cars, but they differ in approach from a design and engineering philosophy. Elon Musk relies on computer vision systems that use a combination of ultrasonic, radar and camera devices. Waymo on the other hand use a very fundamental device among driverless car makers and that is LiDAR. Elon believes Tesla can rely on it’s sophisticated hardware with AI software while Waymo implements LiDAR at the... [Lire la suite]

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY Car manufacturers like WAYMO and TESLA has been developing high value Autonomous (AD) systems that are said to be level 3. AD systems are complex architectures in a feedforward chain : . perception. Sensor fusion. Situation understanding and holding. Decision making. Actuators Such a feedforward chain is validated on crossings of use cases recorded in huge databases.The problem is that it is not possible to validate a feedforward chain on a database and know...
