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]

Autonomous driving levels 0 to 5: Understanding the differences

Autonomous driving levels 0 to 5 : Understanding the differences The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defined five different levels for self-driving cars, ranging from complete driver control to complete autonomy. Here's a primer. Between the buzz over self-driving cars at CES 2016 and the Obama administration's announcement to invest almost $4 billion in autonomous vehicle research over the next 10 years, the race to create the best self-driving car has never been hotter. And, the rise of... [Lire la suite]
