Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents Most camera-based road detection systems are based on detection of white lines. Thoses detectors are very efficient if white lines exist (it is not the case on every road in Europe) and if they are "clean" and not tricky. For instance, if you have a construction zone, you keep the white line detection on the right side, you lose it on the left side (so you may thinkthat they are erased on the left side because it happens all the time). Plots (or temporary separation wall) used... [Lire la suite]

Connected Car: mobile operators must innovate to ensure OEMs profit

Connected Car: mobile operators must innovate to ensure OEMs profit The mainstream connected car story swerves from focusing on highly conceptual driverless vehicle futurism to technophobic scaremongering like the supposed growing overreliance on sat navs causing havoc among a fresh generation of the cartographically challenged road user. The reality of the connected car is much more middle of the road. Technically, pretty much anything in connected carland is possible. Elon Musk, CEO of US-auto-firm Tesla, said recently that...

Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust

Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust Until recently, the concept of a driverless car seemed like the stuff of science fiction. But much has changed in just a few short years as the technology behind autonomous vehicles has taken huge strides. The cross-country driving Audi, powered by technology from Delphi, drove in autonomous mode 99 percent of the time. The US federal government has also begun to embrace autonomous vehicles as a coming reality. In February 2016, the US... [Lire la suite]

After riding in Uber's self-driving car, I think Tesla will have some serious competition

After riding in Uber's self-driving car, I think Tesla will have some serious competition We got behind the wheel of Uber's self-driving car, and it's making us a little nervous for Tesla. First, some context: Uber invited us down to Pittsburgh to try out the driverless car that it's letting a select few hail in the city starting Wednesday. The cars are in no way fully autonomous, which is why a driver and engineer will sit up front during the pilot. But it's also a big milestone for driverless tech. Sure, people have gotten...

FiveAI ‘Driverless Car Project’ Ventures To Compete With Google, Tesla

FiveAI ‘Driverless Car Project’ Ventures To Compete With Google, Tesla UK based engineering-manufacturing start-up FiveAI has entered the ‘driver less car projects’ to give a strong challenge to Google, Tesla in the sector. FiveAI plans to develop an artificial intelligence (AI) system which can drive the ‘driver less car’, reported Forbes on Sunday. The company has tied up with Amadeus Capital and pumped an investment to the tune of $2.7 million in equity funding for the artificial intelligence system, added Forbes. Reportedly,...

Tesla Autopilot 2.0 Full Self Driving Hardware

Tesla announced on Wednesday that from now on all of its electric cars will be built with the components required to turn them into fully autonomous vehicles at a later date. Now chief executive, Elon Musk, has released a video showing what that really means.The video shows a Tesla Model X driving out of a garage, picking up a human driver – who is required to be in the driving seat for the car to legally self-drive in the US – and then driving itself around some public roads, navigating junctions and highways before returning to a...

The Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap

The Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap The vehicles are coming in droves, and the drivers are conspicuously missing. Driverless cars, also known as connected autonomous vehicles—or CAVs to industry insiders—will eventually navigate themselves with no human input, making driving so different that it might someday be called something else. Auto manufacturers are already promising lounges on wheels, where amenities will carry new importance. In an earlier CenturyLinkVoice story about the commute of the future, experts said...

APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK

APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK The tech giant has reportedly laid off dozens of employees amid a strategy “reboot” for Project Titan. The battle to build a self-driving car, the biggest, richest tech giants are falling behind. While Tesla and Uber are racing toward getting a fully autonomous vehicle to market—on Sunday Tesla announced a new update to its self-driving software, while Uber is expected to launch its first fleet of experimental self-driving cars in Pittsburgh any day...

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to coincide with the... [Lire la suite]

Tesla “autopilot” Properly Tested With Motorcycles?

Tesla “autopilot” Properly Tested With Motorcycles? Norway – The Norwegian Motorcyclists’ Union (NMCU) has contacted Elon Musk, founder of Tesla Motors and asked him: Is Tesla “autopilot” properly tested with motorcycles? This is as a follow-up letter to the Minister of Transport, where NMCU took up the issue of people being fooled into believing that adaptive cruise control makes the vehicle “self-executing”. NMCU insists that any system being basis for the term “self-driving” must be thoroughly tested with... [Lire la suite]
