Opposite strategies fuel driverless car development

credit photo : John F. Martin / Delphi Automotive Automakers are on two separate paths to creating self-driving cars. Some, like General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co., have enough cash reserves that they are developing their own proprietary autonomous systems in close partnership with technology companies. Others are waiting to buy off-the-shelf systems like the fully autonomous one announced by Delphi Automotive PLC and Mobileye NV, which they said Tuesday will be ready for any automaker to purchase by 2019. Both approaches have... [Lire la suite]

Google Self-Driving Car Exec Talks Fatal Tesla Crash

Google Self-Driving Car Exec Talks Fatal Tesla Crash Google has finally broken its silence on the fatal Tesla crash that killed 40-year-old Joshua Brown. And it seems Google is blaming both Brown and Tesla for what tragically occurred. In an interview with Bloomberg, John Krafcik, CEO of Google’s Self-Driving Car Project, called what happened on May 7, 2016 in Williston, Fla. “a tragedy.” But Krafcik also pointed out that Brown was “one of probably a hundred or so people who died that day in automotive fatalities, in...

Introducing a New Map for Semi-Autonomous Cars

Introducing a New Map for Semi-Autonomous Cars It’s all but certain that autonomous vehicles are the future of driving. But to get there, we’re going to need a better map. That map will need to do two things: On the technical side, it needs to be able to talk to the vehicle in computer-speak about where to go, in what gear, and how fast. On the design side, it should be as intuitive, fun, and useful to a human being as the best app on her smartphone. Mapbox, the firm that creates map software using mainly open-source data,...

How Google Is Writing the Rules of the Driverless Road

How Google Is Writing the Rules of the Driverless Road The company is pushing for fully autonomous cars. The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Plaza here is a strip mall with a pet-accessories store, a Thai restaurant and a yogurt shop, an unlikely venue to display the high-tech future. But one Saturday morning in March, Google  GOOGL 0.19%  did just that. A small convoy of its driverless cars cruised into the fading asphalt parking lot to give test drives – test rides, actually – to American mayors visiting... [Lire la suite]

AI Is Transforming Google Search. The Rest of the Web Is Next

AI Is Transforming Google Search. The Rest of the Web Is Next Giannandrea, you see, oversees Google’s work in artificial intelligence. This includes deep neural networks, networks of hardware and software that approximate the web of neurons in the human brain. By analyzing vast amounts of digital data, these neural nets can learn all sorts of useful tasks, like identifying photos, recognizing commands spoken into a smartphone, and, as it turns out, responding to Internet search queries. In some cases, they can learn a task... [Lire la suite]

Google argues that if self-driving cars can pass safety tests, they should be legal

Google argues that if self-driving cars can pass safety tests, they should be legal Chris Urmson, director of Google's self-driving car project, has sent a letter to US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx today with a plan for selling autonomous vehicles that have no steering wheels or pedals, AP reports. The plan appears to be pretty straightforward: Urmson argues that if a self-driving car can pass standardized federal safety tests, they should be road-legal. Urmson adds that regulators could "set conditions that limit use... [Lire la suite]

How Google driverless cars deal with emergencies

How Google driverless cars deal with emergencies Google has shed some light on why one of its driverless cars was stopped by police for driving too slow last month, an incident that attracted widespread attention as the vehicles continue to capture the public's imagination. Google's driverless car was stopped by police in California in a curious incident – moving at a speed of 24 miles per hour (mph) in a 35 mph zone. The firm does not send its self-driving car on roads with a speed limit above 35 mph. In its monthly... [Lire la suite]

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence Automakers intending to bring driverless cars to market need to work as much on software design as mechanical engineering, the researcher leading Nissan Motor Co.’s automated-vehicle program said. Making cars that are “deliberative” in assessing road conditions, rather than just reactive, requires artificial intelligence, Maarten Sierhuis, director of Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center in Sunnyvale, California, said in an interview. The carmaker, which aims to... [Lire la suite]
