Review of news from TESLA

  r   1: The Dojo Neural Net Training Center Tesla is developing a NN training computer called Dojo to process truly vast amounts of video data. 2: Dramatically Better Autopilot “The FSD improvement will come as a quantum leap, because it’s a fundamental architectural rewrite, not an incremental tweak. I drive the bleeding edge alpha build in my car personally. Almost at zero interventions between home & work. Limited public release in 6 to 10 weeks.” says Elon Musk  3. Avoiding Potholes! 4. And Roundabouts!... [Lire la suite]

Ford partners with Michigan Science Center for interactive AV experience

Ford Motor Company has partnered with the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) to educate the community on the future of transportation, creating MiSci’s first AV exhibit. Built by Ford engineers and developers working closely with MiSci, the installation resembles a vehicle of the future that guests can engage with and explore inside to learn about AVs through interactive displays and a simulation. The exhibit shows how AVs operate and make decisions without a human driver, using data that is collected through 3D maps, cameras, sensors... [Lire la suite]

An Autonomous Vehicle Is A New Medium

“You can have many views of what a computer is. My particular view is that a computer is a new medium. (…) A computer will be in the future more looked at in this way — as a delivery vehicle for software.” — Steve Jobs in 1995. For most, an autonomous vehicle (AV) is a car, but it also can be seen asa new medium — something that in the future will be seen as a delivery vehicle for software. It delivers software to you, and one part of its diverse software services is autonomous transportation. In that respect, the term autonomous... [Lire la suite]

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the automotive industry by storm to drive the development of level-4 and level-5 autonomous vehicles. Why do you think AI has become so popular now, though it has been around since the 1950s? Simply put, the reason behind this explosion of AI is the humongous amount of data that we have available today. With the help of connected devices and services, we are able to collect data in every industry, thus fueling the AI revolution. While... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018

Autonomous Cars Are Driving on Our Streets. Welcome to 2018 Over the course of 2017, we saw some major steps forward when it comes to autonomous vehicles. This technology has been on the horizon for some time, but it’s finally hitting the streets in various forms. In July 2017, a US House Committee gave its approval for the SELF DRIVE act, a groundbreaking piece of legislation intended to underpin the safe introduction of autonomous vehicles. The bill is set to allow automakers to field 25,000 such cars in their first year of... [Lire la suite]

No Driving Required: What Automated Vehicles Mean For Our Future

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are The Next Big Thing in the tech industry. It might sound a little like a farfetched science fiction movie, but think back to those landline locked days when phones were used merely for necessary communication. Who could have envisioned a world in which we all hold the internet in our hands? Yet in 10 years that has become our reality, and it looks as if the same will be true for driverless cars. Google, Uber, and Tesla - to name a few - are already developing and testing prototypes, and some autonomous... [Lire la suite]

Five big tests that driverless cars will have to pass

Five big tests that driverless cars will have to pass Self-driving cars developed by Google and others are likely to be technically superior before long, but their road to the mainstream will not be simple.  It would be easy to believe that robot cars are powering inevitably onto our roads. Google’s self-driving vehicles have totted up more than 1.2 million miles – 90 years worth of driving experience – on California’s streets since 2009. Various countries and US states are bending over backwards to... [Lire la suite]

Audi will have an autonomous car in 2020 using NVIDIA tech and AI

Audi will have an autonomous car in 2020 using NVIDIA tech and AI Audi and NVIDIA have been working together for a while, with most of the results being fancy infotainment systems like the current version of MMI and Audi's Virtual Cockpit display setup. Now the two are partnering to build autonomous vehicles that will leverage NVIDIA technology. Audi has a demonstrator now and promises a fully autonomous car for the year 2020.The tech underlying these new self-driving vehicles is NVIDIA's DRIVE computing platform. It uses... [Lire la suite]

Nissan Autonomous Vehicle Tech : ProPilot

Nissan Autonomous Vehicle Tech : ProPilot Nissan’s new Serena, set to go on sale in Japan in late August, will come equipped with the company’s ProPILOT autonomous drive technology that’s designed for highway use in single-lane traffic. With ProPILOT, the vehicle’s accelerator, brakes, and steering are controlled based on information captured through a mono camera equipped with advanced-image processing software. The ProPILOT camera can quickly recognize, in three-dimensional depth, preceding vehicles and lane markers, according... [Lire la suite]

Google’s self-driving cars will hit public roads this month

Google’s self-driving cars will hit public roads this month We weren’t sure how this year’s North American International Auto Show was going to fare considering all of the car news at CES 2017 last week, but the Detroit show got off to a big start on Sunday. Waymo, the new company formed when Google spun off its autonomous car division in 2016, announced that its first fleet of self-driving minivans will hit public roads later this month. Read more...
