Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past?

Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past? A year ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stunned the automotive world by announcing that henceforth, all of his company’s vehicles would be shipped with the hardware necessary for “full self-driving.” By 2019, Tesla drivers would be able to sleep in their cars, he suggested. Musk one-upped that a few months later, vowing to demonstrate a completely autonomous, cross-country trip in a Tesla by the end of 2017. But since then, the... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars Explained

The age of autonomous driving is upon us. Automakers are making the tech-tastic promise of self-driving cars a reality. From street ready auto-drive systems to beta-tests of fully automated vehicles, the industry is driving towards a future where humans no longer sit behind the wheel. Most players in this space are ushering in this era through incremental innovation. The “levels” of innovation are based on a six-part classification system published in 2014 by the Society of Automotive Engineers International, an automotive... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving car technology: When will the robots hit the road?

Self-driving car technology: When will the robots hit the road? As cars achieve initial self-driving thresholds, some supporters insist that fully autonomous cars are around the corner. But the technology tells a (somewhat) different story. The most recent people targeted for replacement by robots? Car drivers—one of the most common occupations around the world. Automotive players face a self-driving-car disruption driven largely by the tech industry, and the associated buzz has many consumers expecting their next cars to... [Lire la suite]
