Electric Bus vs Autonomous Shuttle vs Ride Sharing: What Is The Future Of Public Transportation?

Cities are growing like never before. By 2035, more than 2 billion more people will have moved to cities, according to a report by The Guardian. Cities are already drowning in congestion from private cars, forcing cities like London to impose additional fees on cars entering city centers. Now US cities on both coasts — Boston and Seattle — are considering congestion charges of their own as a way to reduce the number of cars competing for space in those cities. Fewer cars would also help reduce carbon emissions. ... [Lire la suite]

Driving Force - A Swedish Startup Aims To Solve The Mapping Problem In The Driverless Car Era

There was a time - and it wasn’t that long ago - when I found my way around the UK capital by using a book called London A to Z. When I wanted to find a particular street, I would look it up in the index, ascertain the grid reference and then flick through to the relevant page of the guide, where a map would be waiting for me. Today, of course, I’m much more likely to check out the street on Google Street View before I leave the house and then, once I’ve set off, use one of the map apps on my smartphone to guide me from the nearest...

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say.   Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that are hidden around a corner – a... [Lire la suite]
