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]

2 Key Ways Robotaxis Can Entice Humans (& Get Them To Ditch Their Cars)

Credit: NHTSA There’s a common claim that autonomous vehicles will definitely take over the market and we humans will essentially stop driving ourselves places (except to the extent that some of us still keep horses to ride on). There’s an often combined claim that people will give up auto ownership and use robotaxis instead. Then there’s the perhaps equally common response: “nuh-uh.” Or: “I don’t see it happening. People like driving, like being in control, and treat having a car as a status issue.” I haven’t... [Lire la suite]
