Four predictions for Pittsburgh’s self-driving cars in 2018

This year in self-driving car news started with Mayor Bill Peduto hoping for a better relationship with Uber and ended with policy recommendations from Carnegie Mellon University students on using autonomous vehicles to improve access to public transit. In between, the city’s self-driving scene grew by two. Ford invested $1 billion into Pittsburgh self-driving startup Argo AI and Aurora Innovation launched, bringing the number of autonomous vehicle testers in the city up to five — Aptiv (formerly Delphi), Argo AI, Aurora Innovation,...

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...

Uber Is Making a $1 Billion Bet on Owning a Fleet of Driverless Cars

Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality

Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality If you told me a few years ago that in next 10 years we would have flying cars, I would have dismissed it as pure fiction. I have to say given the maturity of drone technology, advent of autonomous vehicles and giant strides we are making in AI, I believe we will see first applications of flying vehicles for recreational activities in the next five years. The flying car, which was confined to movies such as Back to the Future, and TV shows like the Jetsons, is all set to take a... [Lire la suite]

A Slow Ride Toward the Future of Public Transportation

A Slow Ride Toward the Future of Public Transportation HELSINKI, Finland — A small electric bus chugged along at a slow but steady seven miles per hour when a white van, entering the street from the side, cut in front of it. The bus slowed, as if its driver had hit the brakes, and got back up to speed after the van moved out of the way. But this bus has no brake or accelerator pedal. It has no steering wheel, either. In fact, it doesn’t have a driver — it operates using sensors and software, although for now, a person is stationed... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars Are Going to Beat Up on Trains, Too

Self-Driving Cars Are Going to Beat Up on Trains, Too One reason it’s so irresistible to speculate about what self-driving cars will do to our lives is that there aren’t any around yet to show us how wrong we are: The prototypes from Google, Uber, and others are tantalizingly functional (and the feds have officially cleared a lane ahead for them, regulation-wise), but real-deal full autonomy remains safely tucked in the future. Much of the speculation has revolved around how autonomous vehicles (or... [Lire la suite]
