How will Google, Apple shake up car insurance industry ?    ar insurance industry, meet potential disrupters Google and Apple. Currently, nearly all mainstream insurers that offer driver-monitoring programs use relatively expensive devices that plug into a portal under the dashboard.

Aftermarket Add-Ons Will Make Any Car Smarter, for a Price

Aftermarket Add-Ons Will Make Any Car Smarter, for a Price When we talk about driverless cars, we're often starting with the concept of a whole-package model — such as Google's now famous laser-and-sensor prototype — one that's already navigating selected routes in California. But there's another frontier in the technology-driven space of advanced driving systems, and it's starting to make inroads in the aftermarket. Witness the emergence of add-ons such as Cruise Automation's RP-1 radar-based advanced driver assist... [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]

Analysing Uber’s market moves – and how it intends to disrupt transport markets

Analysing Uber’s market moves – and how it intends to disrupt transport markets Opinion I am pretty sure that Uber’s announcements over the past couple of years around building a centre of expertise in driverless vehicles did not come as a surprise to anybody interested in these technologies. Though Uber hasn’t clearly mentioned why it would hire a few hundred engineers or buy a startup to support its driverless capability development, as it has done since then, the reason is quite straightforward: replacing more than one...
