Would You Buy a Self-Driving Future From These Guys?

Crédit photo:Jan Buchczik   When the owner of an automated Tesla was killed in a crash last year, the carmaker’s founder, Elon Musk, urged journalists to peer into the future. “If, in writing some article that’s negative, you effectively dissuade people from using an autonomous vehicle,” Mr. Musk said, “you’re killing people.” Scary. But self-driving vehicle proponents like Mr. Musk envision a world where those cars would all but eliminate traffic accidents, unleash our productivity and allow the old and disabled to travel...

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think As excitedly as we talk about it, you’d think the promise of fully autonomous vehicles is right around the bend, just another few miles and we’ll pull into our destination. In truth, we’re not there yet, and a few sceptics even suggest we’ll never get there — too many bumps in the road ahead. As engineers, we know that we’ll get to the holy grail of autonomous driving. The key questions are how long will it take, what’s the best route and how much will it cost? Let’s pull out... [Lire la suite]

Tech trends we’re most looking forward to in 2017

Tech trends we’re most looking forward to in 2017 Autonomous driving While it would’ve been a terrifying sight a few years back, chances are we’ll be noticing vehicles without drivers more often next year. As technology continues to evolve, industry titans are gradually venturing into building autonomous vehicles. In fact, the competition in the self-driving market is heating up at exponential rates – and the good results aren’t falling behind. Since initially introducing its ‘Autopilot‘ feature back in 2015, Tesla has... [Lire la suite]
