AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES : PLOTTING A ROUTE TO THE DRIVERLESS FUTURE

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES PLOTTING A ROUTE TO THE DRIVERLESS FUTURE While the long-term benefits of autonomous vehicles (AVs) are genuinely exciting, the route to true autonomy in transportation will likely be long and full of uncertainty. The precise impact of AVs on individuals, communities, industries and workplaces is, as yet, unclear. One thing’s for sure, though—every industry will be affected. Some will find themselves disrupted; others will find new opportunities for growth and innovation. Both outcomes create a pressing need... [Lire la suite]

Survey Measures EMS Personnel’s Perceptions of Self-Driving Ambulances

Survey Measures EMS Personnel’s Perceptions of Self-Driving Ambulances You arrive on-scene to find a gunshot victim who’s bleeding profusely. You and your partner share a knowing look—you’ll need a second set of hands to work on this patient. Luckily you brought the automated ambulance to the scene. You and your partner jump in back with the patient as the ambulance drives itself to the closest trauma center, allowing the two of you to work as a team on a rapidly declining patient when normally one of you would have to drive. ...

Uber trucks start shuttling goods across Arizona — by themselves

Uber trucks start shuttling goods across Arizona — by themselves Uber has been using its self-driving trucks to transport goods in Arizona. Gregory Murphy SAN FRANCISCO — Uber has been sending self-driving trucks on delivery runs across Arizona since November, the first step in what promises to be a freight transportation revolution that could radically reshape the jobs of long-haul truckers. After testing its technology earlier in 2017, Uber began contracting with trucking companies to use... [Lire la suite]

By 2021, you could be sleeping behind the wheel of an autonomous Volvo XC90

By 2021, you could be sleeping behind the wheel of an autonomous Volvo XC90 By 2021, you could be sitting behind the wheel of a truly driverless Volvo. The Swedish automaker’s research and development chief recently told The Car Connection that the company is planning to sell a Level 4 self-driving crossover SUV in 2021. Level 4 autonomy describes cars that can drive themselves without any human interaction, other than entering a final destination. According to Volvo Senior Vice President... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Trucks Need More than Self-Driving Tech to Become Reality

Autonomous Trucks Need More than Self-Driving Tech to Become Reality A panel discussion at the McLeod Software 2018 Users Conference explored autonomous vehicles, explaining that the Smart Truck as a Client is an important part of making self-driving trucks a reality in real-world logistics operations. How does a self-driving truck get dispatched? What happens when it breaks down? If a receiver keeps it sitting waiting to unload? When it encounters a four-way stop or a policeman directing traffic? These questions and more were... [Lire la suite]

How AI Will Help Pave the Way to Autonomous Driving

How AI Will Help Pave the Way to Autonomous Driving Artificial intelligence will enable vehicles to manage, make sense of, and respond quickly to real-world data inputs from hundreds of different sensors, but it’s going to take some time. An entire industry is charging ahead to reach higher-level autonomous driving capabilities. Still, the challenges are many, ranging from the purely technical to regulation- and insurance-related topics, all the way to moral considerations of derived actions and decisions.  However, the...

Updated: Autonomous driving levels 0 to 5: Understanding the differences

Updated: Autonomous driving levels 0 to 5: Understanding the differences Between Tesla's announcement that every car in production will now have the capability for full autonomy by 2018 and the Obama administration's plan to invest almost $4 billion in autonomous vehicle research over the next 10 years, the race to create the best driverless car has never been hotter. The rise of driverless vehicles is going to have a major impact on businesses and professionals. Automated vehicles could replace corporate... [Lire la suite]
