Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time

Watch Waymo remove safety drivers from autonomous taxis for the first time Phoenix, Arizona is home to the world's first fully driverless robot taxi service. Google sibling Waymo now has driverless cars on public roads, with no one behind the wheel. The autonomous Chrysler Pacifica minivans had kept safety drivers onboard, ready to take over in emergencies or when the vehicle fails to navigate on its own. But Waymo has let its cars off the leash in Phoenix, AZ, giving them permission to drive entirely on their own. A... [Lire la suite]

Waymo’s driverless taxi service will open to the public soon

Waymo’s driverless taxi service will open to the public soon Waymo is working on an autonomous taxi fleet, modeled after the pilot program it currently offers outside of Phoenix. The big difference here is that once fully launched, Waymo's service won't have a driver behind the wheel. Additionally, the company will up its fleet of self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans from 100 to 500. As you'd imagine, the entire ride-hailing process will be handled via a mobile app. While the initial service area will be... [Lire la suite]

Development of Driverless Cars to Speed Up with ADAS Technology

Development of Driverless Cars to Speed Up with ADAS Technology The desire to improve Advanced Driver Assistance and other safety systems will speed up the development of autonomous cars over the coming decade.   In the 1997 film Tomorrow Never Dies, James Bond drives a modified silver BMW that he controls from the backseat with a mobile phone during a parking lot chase sequence. The vehicle also has special tires: In the event of a puncture, they simply reinflate. It may be a while before consumers get to enjoy some... [Lire la suite]

Innoviz debuts an aftermarket LiDAR product for self-driving car development

Innoviz debuts an aftermarket LiDAR product for self-driving car development LiDAR is a key ingredient in the overall sensing package required to make autonomous cars a reality (though Tesla would disagree), but it’s also prohibitively expensive, especially for companies just starting out, and researchers not tied to companies with deep pockets. That’s why Innoviz has created a new aftermarket LiDAR unit offering good performance at more budget-friendly prices, set to go into mass production starting early next year. The solution...

Driving Towards Autonomous Cars and ADAS – The Future is Now

Driving Towards Autonomous Cars and ADAS – The Future is Now Read any automotive-related article and I’m sure it discusses autonomous cars and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)  – the benefits, the challenges and what the future may hold. More and more auto makers are moving towards autonomous developing vehicles, but many of the systems that will eventually be integrated into these vehicles to make them fully autonomous are being developed today. In fact, you probably have some of them in the car you are driving now —... [Lire la suite]

Human Factors Evaluation of Level 2 And Level 3 Automated Driving Concepts

Human Factors Evaluation of Level 2 And Level 3 Automated Driving Concepts Chapter 1 Background on Automated Driving Concepts Project Background and Purpose The examination of automation and to what extent various functions should be allocated to either the human or the machine has been a topic of discussion for decades in the field of human factors (Fitts, 1951). Automation can allow for the human to shift from a role of primary responsibility for planning, executing, and monitoring, to one of supervisory control (Sheridan, 1970).... [Lire la suite]
