NEXYAD at the Autonomous Vehicle Conference in Paris : REGARDS CROISES ET DIALOGUE SUR LE VEHICULE AUTONOME

NEXYAD at the Autonomous Vehicle Conference in Paris : REGARDS CROISES ET DIALOGUE SUR LE VEHICULE AUTONOME NEXYAD presented a paper to this conference (organized by SIA). Presentation was about SafetyNex, an Artificial Intelligence algorithm that gives Autonomous Vehicles the awareness of risk, and that makes them more robust to unknown situations, safer, and more efficient.

Autonomous-driving disruption: Technology, use cases, and opportunities

Autonomous-driving disruption: Technology, use cases, and opportunities As autonomous-driving technology advances, new transportation use cases will emerge, largely driven by factors such as what is transported, type of vehicle ownership, and where the vehicle operates. Use cases drive business models, value chains, and strategic decisions. Asutosh Padhi, a senior partner in McKinsey’s Chicago office, and Philipp Kampshoff, a partner in the Houston office, share the McKinsey Center for Future Mobility’s perspective on how the...

Self Driving Car Startups to Watch

Self Driving Car Startups to Watch Not long ago, the self driving car was talked about as futuristic tech that was decades away, in the same way we think about flying cars today. Thanks to startups, a driverless future without a steering wheel and a gas pedal is now an inevitability, the only question is when. Tesla, Uber, Lyft, Waymo, and incumbent automakers feeling the competitive pressure are accelerating the advent of autonomous tech. The rush to develop self-driving cars is fueling GM's $1 billion acquisition of... [Lire la suite]

Assessing the real future impact of autonomous vehicles

Assessing the real future impact of autonomous vehicles Bold predictions and skeptical challenges abound regarding the speed with which autonomous vehicles could emerge. The evangelists believe we could see a rapid evolution from “level 1” function-specific automation of tasks – such as stability control – through to “level 4” fully self-driving vehicles. Indeed, in early 2017 Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, claimed that full autonomy could be less than six months away. Whilst development to date has been relatively slow, as with... [Lire la suite]

What Are the Safety Features in Autonomous Cars?

What Are the Safety Features in Autonomous Cars? Autonomous cars are still making their way into the automotive marketplace, but they are becoming more and more common every year. It’s a fantastic change — experts are estimating that more autonomous cars on the road will reduce accidents by up to 90 percent, saving a potential 30,000 lives every year. What makes autonomous cars so much safer, and what are the newest safety features that have been implemented in these vehicles?   Emergency Braking Emergency braking is a... [Lire la suite]

Safety and self-driving vehicles

Safety and self-driving vehicles The government wants to promote self-driving vehicles as a key feature of its strategy for economic growth. At a meeting last month of the government council on investing in the future, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe hailed autonomous driving technology as “a major weapon for a productivity revolution” and ordered relevant ministries and agencies to accelerate work on regulations permitting self-driving cars. Road testing has already begun in Japan under tight conditions, and the government has an... [Lire la suite]

China Wants Its Own Brains Behind 30 Million Self-Driving Cars

China Wants Its Own Brains Behind 30 Million Self-Driving Cars China’s aspiration to deploy 30 million autonomous vehicles within a decade is seeding a fledgling chip industry, with startups like Horizon Robotics Inc. emerging to build the brains behind those wheels. The Beijing-based company is taking aim at Nvidia Corp. and Mobileye NVjust as the autonomous-driving business takes off and uncertainty looms over international trade. Annual revenue from the chips used in driverless vehicles globally should... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Car Crashes: Who — or What — Is to Blame?

Autonomous Car Crashes: Who — or What — Is to Blame? The promise of driverless vehicle technology to reduce road fatalities hangs in the balance now as never before. Two recent deaths involving Uber and Tesla vehicles using driverless systems have raised the debate on safety to levels that threaten to significantly delay or derail adoption of the technology.   Uber has temporarily halted tests of self-driving cars after the latest crash, and so have Toyota and graphic chips manufacturer Nvidia, whose artificial...
