If I have to choose between flying cars and self driving car, which one should I choose?

If I have to choose between flying cars and self driving car, which one should I choose? Flying cars are unlikely to ever become a reality. First, cost. Aircraft cost typically $200,000. A flying car would be at least that expensive, if not more. remember, it has to have a full set of everything a car needs, then it needs a full set of everything an aircraft needs. Second, license, you need a pilot’s license to fly one. That costs typically $8–12,000. Third, weight. Aircraft have to be very light to fly, and adding all the parts... [Lire la suite]

Parcel delivery The future of last mile

Parcel delivery The future of last mile Currently subject to significant disruption, last-mile delivery, especially of parcels, is getting a great deal of attention in the media and from investors – rightfully so. The cost of global parcel delivery, excluding pickup, line-haul, and sorting, amounts to ~ EUR 70 billion, with China, Germany, and the United States accounting for more than 40 percent of the market. However, the market is not just large, it is also highly dynamic, with growth rates in 2015 ranging between 7 and 10... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous driving and fleet

Autonomous driving and fleet Autonomous driving technologies are developing fast. But, despite the buzz around the potential impact of self-driving options, aspects such as timing, uptake and penetration remain hard to predict. The new technologies that make autonomous driving possible also bring with them possibilities for completely new mobility models and services. In addition, developments based on networks, sensors, mobile communication, real-time information, and new levels of connectivity are changing our view on... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles   SAE International (aka the Society of Automotive Engineers), a professional association that often sets industry guidelines, stepped in to provide a helpful level-by-level guide. First published in 2014, these J3016 guidelines have become the industry standard, having been adopted by both the US Department of Transportation and the United Nations. On the road to self-driving, autonomous cars, there are six levels of automation, according to... [Lire la suite]

DISCOVER AUTONOMOUS DRIVING POTENTIAL IN JAPAN

DISCOVER AUTONOMOUS DRIVING POTENTIAL IN JAPAN Japan has an Olympic dream - that Japan by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be able to amaze the world again by showcasing the future of travel; state-of-the-art self-driving cars. Only days prior to the first Tokyo Olympics in 1964 did the groundbreaking high-speed railway Shinkansen go into service. Shinkansen was able to reduce the duration of the trip between Tokyo and Osaka, Japan’s two main economic centers, by more than 3 hours. The Olympic organizing committee has publicly stated...

Baidu gets the green light to test self-driving cars in China

Baidu gets the green light to test self-driving cars in China Chinese search giant Baidu has received approval to begin testing its self-driving cars in Beijing, Reuters reports. It is a sign of China’s strong support for the industry in the wake of the first pedestrian death from an autonomous Uber vehicle in the US. Baidu, which is known as China’s version of Google, received a permit to test its vehicles on 33 roads spanning around 65 miles (105 kilometers) in the city’s less-populated suburbs, the firm said in a...

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]

Tesla will start rolling out its ‘full self-driving’ package in August, Elon Musk says

Tesla will start rolling out its ‘full self-driving’ package in August, Elon Musk says Over the weekend, avid Twitter user Elon Musk said that Tesla’s “long awaited” Version 9 of Autopilot would begin rolling out this August. “To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety,” Musk tweeted. “With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features.” This would appear to put Musk on track to achieve the promise he made two years ago to offer “full self-driving” capabilities to Tesla owners by 2019. At the... [Lire la suite]
