How China will help fuel the revolution in autonomous vehicles

How China will help fuel the revolution in autonomous vehicles Fundamentally transforming mobility McKinsey research suggests autonomous vehicles could, at some point, take over most of the automotive market in China. For instance, industry respondents to our survey indicate passenger vehicles used for mobility services such as “robo-taxis” will see a peak adoption rate of 62 percent, followed by private premium vehicles (51 percent) and private mass-market cars (38 percent). Mobility services will lead due to the... [Lire la suite]

How’s the APAC preparing for the arrival of autonomous vehicles?

How’s the APAC preparing for the arrival of autonomous vehicles?   GALLUP recent polled Americans about self-driving cars recently and found that more than 50 percent felt they would be the norm within the next decade. A more global study suggests that one in four vehicles will be fully autonomous (level 5) before 2030. However, as much of the progress is being made at research facilities, the real question is this: How are the majority of vehicle manufacturers and regulators preparing for the arrival of this technology? ...

Human Factors in Automated Driving

Human Factors in Automated Driving   Automated driving will fundamentally change road transportation. But the role of humans and human-system interaction need to be clearly established to ensure a smooth ride. Automated driving technology has the potential to fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. If set on the right track, automated vehicles (AVs) could reduce accidents caused by human errors, increase traffic flow efficiency, increase comfort by allowing the driver to perform alternative...

Mercedes joins forces with Bosch to develop self-driving taxis

Mercedes joins forces with Bosch to develop self-driving taxis The pact between the world’s largest maker of premium cars and the world’s largest automotive supplier forms a powerful counterweight to new auto industry players like ride-hailing firms Uber and Didi which are also working on self-driving cars. Technology companies and carmakers are striving to adjust to a shifting landscape in the auto industry as consumers increasingly use smartphones to locate, hail and rent vehicles, rather than going out and buying cars. The... [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]

EU Commission drives home merits of autonomous vehicles

EU Commission drives home merits of autonomous vehicles Can driverless cars chauffeur people to a love of the EU? The European Commission is betting it can. Christmas came early for automated driving enthusiasts this week. Convening a two-day summit in Brussels on the subject – the first of its kind – the European Commission promised a sack of goodies in the form of dedicated funding, regulatory changes, cross-border agreements and innovation stimulus. Driverless trucks could be a reality on European motorways within two years,... [Lire la suite]
