After fatal Uber and Tesla crashes, self-driving car tech companies band together

  The autonomous car industry has a perception problem — and now a group of related companies has banded together to try to solve it. Uber's fatal crash last month was the first self-driving car accident to kill a pedestrian. Then a Tesla Model X in autopilot mode left the driver dead after a fiery crash into a California highway barrier. Following its deadly accident in Tempe, Arizona, Uber halted all its self-driving testing, as did companies such as Nvidia and Toyota. A group of tech and transportation companies involved in...

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai Both the Model S and Model X vehicles will be available to commuters… Back in February we reported that the RTA had committed to buying 200 cars from electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla to add to its limo fleet. We’re not going to lie, we were pretty excited about the prospect of cruising down Sheikh Zayed Road in the back of one of Tesla founder (and real-life Iron Man) Elon Musk’s super-sleek, all-electric vehicles. Well, it looks like that dream is finally going to... [Lire la suite]

Why Has Waymo Taken So Long to Commercialize Autonomous Taxis?

Why Has Waymo Taken So Long to Commercialize Autonomous Taxis? In November 2017, Waymo GOOG announced it was testing autonomous cars in Phoenix, without drivers behind the steering wheels but with safety engineers in the back seats. Next, the company plans to commercialize a ridesharing service. According to data from the California Department of Motor Vehicles,1 Waymo’s cars are improving rapidly enough to support a commercial launch within the next two years. The same data, however, also suggest that Waymo will... [Lire la suite]

Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past?

Tesla’s Autopilot is supposed to deliver full self-driving, so why does it feel stuck in the past? A year ago, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stunned the automotive world by announcing that henceforth, all of his company’s vehicles would be shipped with the hardware necessary for “full self-driving.” By 2019, Tesla drivers would be able to sleep in their cars, he suggested. Musk one-upped that a few months later, vowing to demonstrate a completely autonomous, cross-country trip in a Tesla by the end of 2017. But since then, the... [Lire la suite]

Why Tesla Wants a Piece of the Commercial Trucking Industry

Why Tesla Wants a Piece of the Commercial Trucking Industry As Adam “MCA” Yauch’s bass line fuzzed through the speakers, and the crowd—encouraged by Tesla Motors (TSLA, +1.49%) CEO Elon Musk to “jump over the barriers”—flooded the airplane hangar just outside Los Angeles, there was talk of an impending revolution. It certainly felt that way to onlookers. Excited energy crackled in the crisp California air. In truth, the revolution—or evolution, depending on who is talking—was already underway. But that didn’t stop Musk... [Lire la suite]

ACE – the partnership that changes mobility?

Vehicle technology trends usually happen very slowly and often include unpredictable innovation. To truly succeed, a variety of often seemingly unrelated inputs are required. Connecting the dots looking backwards is easy. As we look forwards, can we connect the connected, automated and electric vehicle technology dots to drive a new vehicle paradigm? The question for consideration is: are they becoming one and the same? Is connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technology reliant upon full electrification, and is full electrification...

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race?

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race? More and more companies are investing in self-driving technology and for a lot of people, this can be a great piece of news. The focus here is rather simple: people want to have fast and reliable driverless cars that will help them stay away from accidents. But as you know, right after Tesla added its self-driving update to its cars, some people already experienced accidents. So, the technology is still in its infancy. But since that day, things have evolved quite a bit.... [Lire la suite]
