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]

Drive.ai wants to help autonomous cars talk with the people around them

Drive.ai wants to help autonomous cars talk with the people around them If you are walking around Mountain View, California and stumble across a car that beeps at you like R2-D2, it’s probably thanks to Carol Reiley. She’s the co-founder and president of Drive.ai, an autonomous car startup that wants to help robot cars learn how to interact with people better — and maybe even deliver a world without honking. "My interest in robotics lies in where technology intersects with humanity," says Reiley. "How do these cars actually... [Lire la suite]

Facial Recognition Increases Autonomous Vehicles Safety

Facial Recognition Increases Autonomous Vehicles Safety Facial recognition, which has many applications in security and biometrics, has recently been drawn to a new realm of application: driver safety. Transitioning between Autonomous and Manual Driving With autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles on the roads, the booming industry of automated vehicles has been a hot topic. Tesla Motors Inc. is selling vehicles with a semi-autonomous “Autopilot” feature across the country. Uber Technologies Inc., the ride-hailing giant, has... [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...

Mercedes vs. Google: How two competing visions are racing to bring driverless cars to market

Mercedes vs. Google: How two competing visions are racing to bring driverless cars to market DETROIT — Two competing visions could determine how you first experience a driverless car. Traditional automakers like Mercedes and Toyota already make vehicles equipped with systems that keep cars within their lanes, apply the brakes or park by themselves. Their plan is to gradually automate more functions of driving until, perhaps by 2025, some cars will be fully capable of driving themselves. But Google, Alibaba, Baidu and other... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars are here, but that doesn't mean you can call them 'driverless'

Self-driving cars are here, but that doesn't mean you can call them 'driverless' I went to college nine hours away from home — easily doable in a day's drive, but tedious nonetheless. On one trip through the cornfields of Indiana, I remember turning to my friend wondering why we hadn't figured out cruise control for steering wheels. I had already been cruising at a steady 70 m.p.h. for hours with my feet on the floor. Why did I have to touch the steering wheel to keep it in the lines too? Less than six years later, the answer is... [Lire la suite]
