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]

Automakers choose Microsoft as connected car partner

Automakers choose Microsoft as connected car partner When Microsoft talks about mobility, our interest is the mobility of the person, not of any single device. After all, people now want their technology experience to move with them, from place to place and device to device, at home, at work, and on the move. Nowhere is this more evident than in today’s connected cars. People expect their car’s computing power to match its horsepower. And automakers are leading the way, bringing mobility solutions to their cars to meet drivers’... [Lire la suite]

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence Automakers intending to bring driverless cars to market need to work as much on software design as mechanical engineering, the researcher leading Nissan Motor Co.’s automated-vehicle program said. Making cars that are “deliberative” in assessing road conditions, rather than just reactive, requires artificial intelligence, Maarten Sierhuis, director of Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center in Sunnyvale, California, said in an interview. The carmaker, which aims to... [Lire la suite]

Nissan Shows Fully Autonomous Cars It Plans To Build By 2020

Nissan Shows Fully Autonomous Cars It Plans To Build By 2020 Cars that can drive themselves--under certain circumstances--are increasingly in the news. Even so, Nissan surprised the world with its recent announcement of a program to develop a fully autonomous car by 2020. The Japanese carmaker obviously isn’t the first to experiment with self-driving vehicles, so how will Nissan contribute to the rise of the machines? At the Nissan 360 event in Southern California, executive vice president Andy Palmer said “zero emissions”... [Lire la suite]

Can Renault-Nissan get 10 autonomous cars on the road by 2020 ?

Can Renault-Nissan get 10 autonomous cars on the road by 2020 ? Way back in 2014, Nissan and Renault agreed to team their respective engineering departments together to help reduce redundancy; so far, the partnership’s claim to fame is the 300,000 EVs the brand has sold globally. The next goal may be more challenging: Renault and Nissan will work together to produce a whopping ten models with autonomous driving capability, with a goal of eliminating the 90 percent of fatal accidents caused by driver error. ...
