Why Silicon Valley has its sights set on the UK as its European driverless car hub

Why Silicon Valley has its sights set on the UK as its European driverless car hub A few years from now, you hail a Waymo driverless taxi through your smartphone app. The car that pulls up may have been built in the US, but the interior is packed with specialist components – cameras, sensors and software – produced from a supply chain across the world.  Some of it may have been developed by a small Oxford university spin-out the Silicon Valley giant snapped up last week. Software, simulations and... [Lire la suite]

Pathway to Driverless Cars: Proposals to support advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies

Pathway to Driverless Cars: Proposals to support advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies Automated vehicle technology will profoundly change the way we travel, making road transport safer, smoother, and smarter. We are on the pathway to driverless cars, where fully automated vehicles will transport people and goods to their destination without any need for a driver. The Government wants to secure the UK’s position at the forefront of this change for the development, construction, and use of automated... [Lire la suite]
