Baidu gets the green light to test self-driving cars in China

Baidu gets the green light to test self-driving cars in China Chinese search giant Baidu has received approval to begin testing its self-driving cars in Beijing, Reuters reports. It is a sign of China’s strong support for the industry in the wake of the first pedestrian death from an autonomous Uber vehicle in the US. Baidu, which is known as China’s version of Google, received a permit to test its vehicles on 33 roads spanning around 65 miles (105 kilometers) in the city’s less-populated suburbs, the firm said in a...

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]

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles Here at Roadshow, we spend a great deal of time covering the rapidly growing field of self-driving car tech. Because both today's and tomorrow's vehicles offer dramatically varying degrees of automated driving, it became necessary to develop a classification system to describe the progression of these technologies, if only to use as shorthand for understanding their relative capabilities and limitations. SAE International (aka the Society of Automotive... [Lire la suite]

HOW TESLA AND WAYMO ARE TACKLING A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR SELF-DRIVING CARS: DATA

HOW TESLA AND WAYMO ARE TACKLING A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR SELF-DRIVING CARS: DATA Autonomous cars won’t happen without tons of data, but Tesla and Waymo have a big head start  There’s a race happening right now that stretches from Silicon Valley to Detroit and back: who can make a self-driving car that behaves better than a human driver? It’s a far harder task than it sounded even a few years ago because human drivers know a lot — not just about their cars but about how people behave on the road when they’re behind the...

Who’s Winning the Self-Driving Car Race? A scorecard breaking down everyone from Alphabet’s Waymo to Zoox

Who’s Winning the Self-Driving Car Race? A scorecard breaking down everyone from Alphabet’s Waymo to Zoox. In the race to start the world’s first driving business without human drivers, everyone is chasing Alphabet Inc.’s Waymo.  The Google sibling has cleared the way to beat its nearest rivals, General Motors Co. and a couple of other players, by at least a year to introduce driverless cars to the public. A deal reached in January to buy thousands of additional Chrysler Pacifica minivans,... [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]

Apple’s latest AI research explores the problem of mapping systems for self-driving cars

Apple’s latest AI research explores the problem of mapping systems for self-driving cars   Apple’s ambitions to build a self-driving car have reportedly shifted gears over the years, but we know the company is focusing on the software side of the equation. This June, CEO Tim Cook said the iPhone maker is building autonomous systems that could power a range of different vehicles (rather than, say, working on its own Apple-branded SUVs). “We sort of see it as the mother of all AI projects,” said Cook. Now,... [Lire la suite]

2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM

2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM You might think it looks like any other vehicle, but the Cruise AV was built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver. We engineered safety into the vehicle in every single step of design, development, manufacturing, testing and validation. Our self-driving vehicle is the result of intensely focused development, and countless hours of real-world testing and validation. It doesn’t drink and drive, doesn’t text and drive, doesn’t get upset, doesn’t get tired, never gets... [Lire la suite]
