Today’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are gradually evolving into full autonomous vehicle systems.

Today’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are gradually evolving into full autonomous vehicle systems. The hype and overblown expectations continue. And the auto companies along with the many OEM and technology suppliers are collectively spending billions of dollars to create the first practical self-driving (SD) cars. Good progress is being made. Analyzing this effort to create the first automated vehicles (AVs), it is clear what must happen. The challenges are mostly technical, but there are major... [Lire la suite]

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai Both the Model S and Model X vehicles will be available to commuters… Back in February we reported that the RTA had committed to buying 200 cars from electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla to add to its limo fleet. We’re not going to lie, we were pretty excited about the prospect of cruising down Sheikh Zayed Road in the back of one of Tesla founder (and real-life Iron Man) Elon Musk’s super-sleek, all-electric vehicles. Well, it looks like that dream is finally going to... [Lire la suite]

Lyft partners with Aptiv to offer robot taxi rides at CES 2018

Lyft partners with Aptiv to offer robot taxi rides at CES 2018 Lyft is partnering with self-driving technology company Aptiv to offer rides in its robot taxis during CES in Las Vegas next week. There will be a safety driver behind the wheel, so the trips will not be completely driverless. Unlike a normal Lyft experience, the cars will only travel to 20 preprogrammed destinations. companies that come to CES to demonstrate self-driving technology do so in closed parking lots where they can control every aspect of the experience....

The Rise of Autonomous Vehicles: Planning for Deployment Not Just Development

The Rise of Autonomous Vehicles: Planning for Deployment Not Just Development This year opens to a landscape of autonomous vehicle expectations that are both exciting and sobering. By now, we are accustomed to seeing automated vehicle technology improve rapidly, and announcements from innovators are losing their novelty. We also hear a growing concern that the technology may not perform as promised, or that it might make urban transportation problems worse. Will it threaten transit, increase congestion, or begin an accelerated... [Lire la suite]

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]
