Five trends transforming the Automotive Industry

Five trends transforming the Automotive Industry The mobility of the future is “eascy” – electrified, autonomous, shared, connected and “yearly” updated. In this study, we describe the factors influencing the sector leading up to 2030 in the key US, Europe, and China markets. It also describes how the automotive industry should restructure itself in terms of volume, scale, and complexity. Through mathematical modeling of key performance indicators and demographic trends, the paper discusses: Mobility behaviour of users... [Lire la suite]

Business models will drive the future of autonomous vehicles

Business models will drive the future of autonomous vehicles   “The technology is essentially here… We have machines that can make a bunch of quick decisions that could drastically reduce traffic fatalities, drastically improve the efficiency of our transportation grid, and help solve things like carbon emissions that are causing the warming of the planet.” Interestingly, this statement didn’t come from a futurist like Elon Musk or Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos; this was President Obama discussing autonomous vehicles in an...

Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking

Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking Current trucking technology such as telematics and fleet management solutions are key factors in the autonomous trucking revolution that could reshape the logistics industry. Industry analysts IHS Automotive estimate that sales of autonomous vehicles could reach 60,000 per year by 2035, or about 15 percent of Class 8-weight segment sales, according to a report from the American Transportation Research Institute. However, that does not take into account... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars need humans less and less, California data shows

Self-driving cars need humans less and less, California data shows A Cruise self-driving car rides on 11th Street in San Francisco in 2017. The General Motors subsidiary logged many more autonomous miles last year. The robot cars test-driving on California roads seem to need their human overseers less and less. The state on Wednesday released reports showing how many miles the companies testing self-driving cars in California logged last year, and how often their engineers had to take control of the vehicles. For... [Lire la suite]

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles   Much like the infamous flying car, people have been dreaming of cars that can do the driving for them for nearly a century. While their aerial brethren are still largely mired in the conceptual stage, the technology to put self-driving cars on the road is already here. Of course, there are still questions of legislation, liability and ethics to consider, but almost every major automotive company currently has a self-driving car either... [Lire la suite]

Developing a Driverless Vehicle

Developing a Driverless Vehicle Are near-zero vehicle collisions a possibility with the advent of autonomous vehicle technology? With the amount of research being done today, it could be a reality sooner rather than later. Imagine a crash-free society, where human error is taken out of the driving equation. Vehicles would function as robots, equipped with lasers, radar, camera sensors, and GPS systems. They would travel from Point A to Point B with a near-zero chance of a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians crossing the... [Lire la suite]

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles The recent Autonomous Vehicle interior design symposium held in Novi, gave me some new insights into the important and often under-rated role that HMI plays in the acceptance of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Why HMI is important – “People universally dislike unpredictability and ambiguity” - #Chris Rockwell / Lextant. To trust the system – people always need to know how the vehicle will behave in a given situation and near future. The HMI system... [Lire la suite]

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

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]

Starsky Robotics Goes All-In On Driverless Trucks

Starsky Robotics Goes All-In On Driverless Trucks Another start-up tech company is aggressively staking its claim as an autonomous trucking technology leader. San Francisco-based Starsky Robotics has been touting a recent, 7-mile test run with no human interaction as well as a $16.5 million Series A investment in the company by Shasta Ventures. While most automotive companies exploring autonomous trucks insist that a driver will be mandatory for years to come, Starsky Robotics is going all-in on the early adoption of... [Lire la suite]
