Autonomous Car Crashes: Who — or What — Is to Blame? The promise of driverless vehicle technology to reduce road fatalities hangs in the balance now as never before.

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...

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many automous car accidents such as the recent UBER accident We all saw videos of the UBER VOLVO accident. The dashcam video shows that visibility conditions were very poor and that the pedestrian is dressed in black (pullover) and crosses a road at night without any light and out of pedestrian crossing areas. This attitude is pure suicade and you wouldn't teach your children to behave this way. But even if this pedestrian shouldn't have been in the... [Lire la suite]

No venture has ever raised more capital, grown as fast, operated more globally, reached as lofty a valuation -- or lost as much money as Uber. Last month, Uber reported a third-quarter loss of nearly $1.5 billion, bringing its 2017 year-to-date red ink to $3.2 billion. Losses of this magnitude are clearly not sustainable, and call for an explanation of why Uber has been unable to rein in ballooning costs and what it will need... [Lire la suite]
