Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality

Flying Cars Are Close To Moving From Fiction To Reality If you told me a few years ago that in next 10 years we would have flying cars, I would have dismissed it as pure fiction. I have to say given the maturity of drone technology, advent of autonomous vehicles and giant strides we are making in AI, I believe we will see first applications of flying vehicles for recreational activities in the next five years. The flying car, which was confined to movies such as Back to the Future, and TV shows like the Jetsons, is all set to take a... [Lire la suite]

Drones vs. driverless cars: A tale of two robotics policies

Drones vs. driverless cars: A tale of two robotics policies When a 2-pound drone crashed on the White House lawn in January, the nation was thrown into drone hysteria. That drone was a $1,000 model made by Chinese technology company DJI, but a basic camera-equipped drone can be had for $40—a fact not lost on those who pontificated about the crash. “It’s pretty worrisome if you’re in the Secret Service, you’re in law enforcement, a drone comes in and you don’t know if this is some 14-year-old kid who got a drone or if this is...

Four Reasons Why Drones, Not Driverless Cars, Are The Future Of Autonomous Navigation

Four Reasons Why Drones, Not Driverless Cars, Are The Future Of Autonomous Navigation Last Wednesday, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced a new advisory committee on autonomous vehicles. The committee’s mission: develop recommendations for how automated technology can transform the way we move people and goods, on our roads and railroads and in our airspace. Thinking about autonomous vehicles holistically is to be applauded. Yet automation on land still seems to dominate the conversation.... [Lire la suite]

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match Drones and self-driving cars are two of the hottest topics in technology, and in some ways are made for each other. While autonomous cars can "see" all around them, their sensors are limited to a certain distance, whereas drones can scout obstacles and trouble far ahead.

Rinspeed Etos – BMW i8-based self-driving concept

Wacky concept car builder Rinspeed is at it again, this time showing its latest creation, the Rinspeed Etos, away from Switzerland for the first time – at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Like the Budii before it, the new self-driving car is based on a BMW i model, this time the RM1.2 million BMW i8. It’s inside where the Etos is a real departure from the car on which it’s based. The i8’s swooping dashboard has been replaced by twin rectangular “shelves,” with one of them storing the ZF TRW steering wheel when... [Lire la suite]
