Would You Buy a Self-Driving Future From These Guys?

Crédit photo:Jan Buchczik   When the owner of an automated Tesla was killed in a crash last year, the carmaker’s founder, Elon Musk, urged journalists to peer into the future. “If, in writing some article that’s negative, you effectively dissuade people from using an autonomous vehicle,” Mr. Musk said, “you’re killing people.” Scary. But self-driving vehicle proponents like Mr. Musk envision a world where those cars would all but eliminate traffic accidents, unleash our productivity and allow the old and disabled to travel...

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars In 2012, there were 33,561 deaths from motor vehicle accidents. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, announced in 2015 that Tesla cars would handle 90 percent of driving within five years. This plan included all Tesla vehicles being equipped with an autopilot system. Musk compared Tesla's autopilot to the autopilot in airplanes, where people still manually control the vehicle in risky situations. Tesla vehicles will use optical equipment and... [Lire la suite]

Tesla’s Self-Driving Car Plan Seems Insane, But It Just Might Work

Tesla’s Self-Driving Car Plan Seems Insane, But It Just Might Work ELON MUSK HAS done it again. The CEO of Tesla Motorsand SpaceX has made an aggressive prediction for his technology, and paired it with an unreasonable deadline. In the past, he’s promised electric cars for everyone and trips to Mars, and built a reputation for achieving those outrageous things, albeit far behind schedule. Now, Musk is pledging that by the end of 2017, he’ll produce a Tesla that can drive itself... [Lire la suite]

Connected Car: mobile operators must innovate to ensure OEMs profit

Connected Car: mobile operators must innovate to ensure OEMs profit The mainstream connected car story swerves from focusing on highly conceptual driverless vehicle futurism to technophobic scaremongering like the supposed growing overreliance on sat navs causing havoc among a fresh generation of the cartographically challenged road user. The reality of the connected car is much more middle of the road. Technically, pretty much anything in connected carland is possible. Elon Musk, CEO of US-auto-firm Tesla, said recently that...

Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust

Our autonomous future: How driverless cars will be the first robots we learn to trust Until recently, the concept of a driverless car seemed like the stuff of science fiction. But much has changed in just a few short years as the technology behind autonomous vehicles has taken huge strides. The cross-country driving Audi, powered by technology from Delphi, drove in autonomous mode 99 percent of the time. The US federal government has also begun to embrace autonomous vehicles as a coming reality. In February 2016, the US... [Lire la suite]

Tech trends we’re most looking forward to in 2017

Tech trends we’re most looking forward to in 2017 Autonomous driving While it would’ve been a terrifying sight a few years back, chances are we’ll be noticing vehicles without drivers more often next year. As technology continues to evolve, industry titans are gradually venturing into building autonomous vehicles. In fact, the competition in the self-driving market is heating up at exponential rates – and the good results aren’t falling behind. Since initially introducing its ‘Autopilot‘ feature back in 2015, Tesla has... [Lire la suite]

Tesla Autopilot 2.0 Full Self Driving Hardware

Tesla announced on Wednesday that from now on all of its electric cars will be built with the components required to turn them into fully autonomous vehicles at a later date. Now chief executive, Elon Musk, has released a video showing what that really means.The video shows a Tesla Model X driving out of a garage, picking up a human driver – who is required to be in the driving seat for the car to legally self-drive in the US – and then driving itself around some public roads, navigating junctions and highways before returning to a...

The Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap

The Future Of Driverless Cars: A Roadmap The vehicles are coming in droves, and the drivers are conspicuously missing. Driverless cars, also known as connected autonomous vehicles—or CAVs to industry insiders—will eventually navigate themselves with no human input, making driving so different that it might someday be called something else. Auto manufacturers are already promising lounges on wheels, where amenities will carry new importance. In an earlier CenturyLinkVoice story about the commute of the future, experts said...
