Forget self-driving cars — these self-driving slippers are the future we deserve

As marketing gimmicks go, I’ll take self-driving slippers over flamethrowers any day. Nissan recently developed a system for slippers to “park” themselves at the entrance of a traditional Japanese inn at the push of a button, in a bid to both delight travelers and market its semi-autonomous ProPilot driving technology. 【TECH for LIFE】ProPILOT Park RYOKAN | Inspired by NISSAN ProPILOT Park #技術の日産   Each slipper is equipped with two tiny wheels, a motor, and sensors to “drive” across the wooden lobby...

Bad weather, traffic are true tests for robotic cars

It’s one thing for a self-driving car to navigate the sunny freeways around Phoenix. It’s another thing entirely to survive the streets of Manhattan or Detroit, much less in a snowstorm. That’s why industry experts are watching where carmakers, automotive suppliers and technology companies decide to launch autonomous car fleets. They say companies that successfully roll out robotic cars in congested cities prone to extreme weather will send a strong signal as to who’s leading and who’s playing catch-up in developing the cars of the...

Are driverless pods the future for world cities?

Are driverless pods the future for world cities? I've just spent a fascinating morning, being taken around North Greenwich in a driverless pod. It has no steering wheel and is modelled on the white guided pods you may have seen at Heathrow Airport. Lots of companies are racing to develop driverless technology, previously I've been out in a Nissan autonomous car. It nearly ran into the back of a street cleaning vehicle while testing in London. Nissan thinks it will take them five more years to develop it - they have been... [Lire la suite]
