Amazon builds team for autonomous vehicle technology

Amazon builds team for autonomous vehicle technology Amazon has quietly pulled together a team to home in on autonomous vehicle technology and how to leverage it for the online retail giant’s needs, potentially aiding its quest for quick delivery, The Wall Street Journal reported. The team consists of about a dozen employees who focus more broadly on how Amazon can deliver its own products more quickly but who aren’t necessarily building self-driving vehicles, people familiar with the matter told The Journal. The team... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018

Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018 Over the course of 2017, we saw some major steps forward when it comes to autonomous vehicles. This technology has been on the horizon for some time, but it’s finally hitting the streets in various forms. In July 2017, a US House Committee gave its approval for the SELF DRIVE act, a groundbreaking piece of legislation intended to underpin the safe introduction of autonomous vehicles. The bill is set to allow automakers to field 25,000 such cars in their first year of... [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]

Nissan Develops Brain-to-Vehicle Technology

Nissan Develops Brain-to-Vehicle Technology Nissan said it will demonstrate at the Consumer Electronics Show new technology designed to enable vehicles to interpret signals from the driver’s brain. This brain-to-vehicle technology promises to speed up reaction times and lead to cars that keep adapting to the driver’s wishes, according to the automaker. By detecting signs that the driver’s brain is about to initiate a movement, such as turning the steering wheel, driver assist technologies can begin the action more quickly. ... [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]

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS for short. ADAS makes safety and marketing sense. Whether it is Daimler, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, GM, another vehicle OEM or... [Lire la suite]

DISCOVER AUTONOMOUS DRIVING POTENTIAL IN JAPAN

DISCOVER AUTONOMOUS DRIVING POTENTIAL IN JAPAN Japan has an Olympic dream - that Japan by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will be able to amaze the world again by showcasing the future of travel; state-of-the-art self-driving cars. Only days prior to the first Tokyo Olympics in 1964 did the groundbreaking high-speed railway Shinkansen go into service. Shinkansen was able to reduce the duration of the trip between Tokyo and Osaka, Japan’s two main economic centers, by more than 3 hours. The Olympic organizing committee has publicly stated...
