Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars Henry Ford didn’t invent the motor car. The late 1800s saw a flurry of innovation by hundreds of companies battling to deliver on the promise of fast, efficient and reasonably-priced mechanical transportation. Ford later came to dominate the industry thanks to the development of the moving assembly line. Today the sector is poised for another breakthrough with the advent of cars that drive themselves. But unlike the original wave of automobile innovation, the... [Lire la suite]

Lessons from Tesla’s Approach to Innovation

Lessons from Tesla’s Approach to Innovation Few companies have attracted as much scorn and adoration as Tesla. When Tesla launches a product like the Cybertruck, the reception tends to be divisive: critics see it as further evidence that founder Elon Musk is out of touch and doomed to fail, while supporters buy in — within a month Tesla received 200,000 preorders for the new vehicle. Compare that to the Ford-150, the world’s best-selling car in 2018, which sold just over 1 million vehicles that year. ... [Lire la suite]

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says   Last year during its Autonomy Investor Day, Tesla laid out the broad strokes of its plan for a fleet of autonomous Teslas to operate as a "robotaxi" service. Of course, at the time, this seemed like a flight of fancy, given the fact that no car manufacturer is even close to full, Level 5 autonomy, by the standard SAE definition. Fast-forward to now, and it still seems like a flight of fancy. Nevertheless, problems of... [Lire la suite]

Tesla just made its one millionth car   Tesla has produced one million electric cars, the company’s CEO Elon Musk announced on Twitter. Musk made the announcement by sharing a picture of the car, a red Model Y, and congratulated the Tesla team on hitting the milestone. It’s a significant moment for an automaker that was only founded in 2003. Tesla released its first consumer car, the Roadster, back in 2008, meaning it’s taken a little over twelve years to hit this million-car milestone. However, it could end up hitting... [Lire la suite]

It’s 2020. Where are our self-driving cars?

It’s 2020. Where are our self-driving cars? In the age of AI advances, self-driving cars turned out to be harder than people expected.   When it comes to self-driving cars, the future was supposed to be now. In 2020, you’ll be a “permanent backseat driver,” the Guardian predicted in 2015. “10 million self-driving cars will be on the road by 2020,” blared a Business Insider headline from 2016. Those declarations were accompanied by announcements from General Motors, Google’s Waymo, Toyota,... [Lire la suite]
