Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry

Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry There’s a saying about life that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. The same can be said of the next decade as the transportation industry navigates its way through the transition toward autonomous technologies. As it does so, there’s likely to be great upheaval, according to panelists who spoke at Lytx’s annual User Group Conference this year in San Diego. In the first part of this two-part article, we...

Developing a Driverless Vehicle

Developing a Driverless Vehicle Are near-zero vehicle collisions a possibility with the advent of autonomous vehicle technology? With the amount of research being done today, it could be a reality sooner rather than later. Imagine a crash-free society, where human error is taken out of the driving equation. Vehicles would function as robots, equipped with lasers, radar, camera sensors, and GPS systems. They would travel from Point A to Point B with a near-zero chance of a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians crossing the... [Lire la suite]

Now California's DMV can allow fully driverless car testing

Credit: Waymo Automakers can now start testing fully driverless cars on California's roads. According to the state DMV's new regulations that became effective on April 2nd, it can now issue three types of autonomous vehicle testing permits. The first kind is the original one it approved years ago, which needs a driver behind the wheel, while the other two could pave the way for the release of Level 4 to 5 autonomous vehicles. See, the second type of permit it can dole out will allow automakers to test fully... [Lire la suite]

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say.   Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that are hidden around a corner – a... [Lire la suite]

The future of auto insurance

The future of auto insurance Driverless vehicles will be a reality in our digital lives, and the car insurance industry of the future will need to meet the challenge of this radical change Motor insurance stands on the cusp of momentous change. It is no exaggeration to say that by the end of the next decade it will be a fundamentally different industry from the one that has barely changed over recent generations. The 1980s revolution in direct insurance and the more recent arrival of comparison websites may have... [Lire la suite]

Senior citizens will lead the self-driving revolution

Senior citizens will lead the self-driving revolution With 125,000 residents, over 54,000 homes, 32 square miles, 750 miles of road, and three distinct downtowns, The Villages in Florida is one of the largest retirement communities in the US. It’s also been described as a raunchy, booze-filled boomtown for those who want to fill their twilight years line-dancing and no-strings-attached sex. And starting soon, it will have another distinction to brag about: a fleet of robot taxis. Voyage, a startup that has been... [Lire la suite]

CHINA: THE WORLD’S BIGGEST MARKET FOR DRIVERLESS CARS IS PUSHING ITS INDUSTRY TO THE LIMIT

CHINA: THE WORLD’S BIGGEST MARKET FOR DRIVERLESS CARS IS PUSHING ITS INDUSTRY TO THE LIMIT Although consumer interest is high, autonomous driving is progressing slowly in China. Newcomers such as Faraday Future or Nio may have great ambitions, but their opportunities remain limited. And volume producers currently have more pressing tasks to take care of. Furthermore, some severe infrastructural hurdles complicate improvements. February 23, 2017 is not a date that William Li will easily forget. After months of preparation and a... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Vehicles: Risk Management Issues and Concerns

Autonomous Vehicles: Risk Management Issues and Concerns No new technology comes without its drawbacks. As these autonomous vehicles are released into the market, what could go wrong? Several factors will need to be considered: cyber security, the shift in liability, and changes in underwriting to keep current with technology trends. New Cyber Security Risks It Comes Down to Control The link between cyber security and cars is a new concept, and it’s one that should not be underestimated. Here is an illustration. In July 2015, two... [Lire la suite]

Driverless Cars of the Future Confront Rules Written for Drivers

Driverless Cars of the Future Confront Rules Written for Drivers When the U.S. government finally got around to regulating auto safety in 1967, it insisted that every car have seatbelts and that the steering column be engineered to absorb impact so it wouldn’t spear the driver. The safety rulebook has since swelled to nearly 900 pages and encompasses everything from electronic stability control to rear-view backup cameras. Through all the updates, however, the regulations remain premised on an assumption that may soon be... [Lire la suite]
