Here are Elon Musk’s wildest predictions about Tesla’s self-driving cars

Here are Elon Musk’s wildest predictions about Tesla’s self-driving cars Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a series of bold predictions today about the ability for his company’s cars to completely drive themselves. And Musk thinks it will happen sooner than most of his competitors — perhaps as soon as the end of this year. Musk made the comments at an invitation-only event for investors at Tesla’s Palo Alto-headquarters, laying out a near-future vision in which self-driving Teslas vehicles compete with the likes of Waymo, GM, and...

Disruption in autonomous driving : AD system adaptive to driving risk

Disruption in autonomous driving : AD system adaptive to driving risk NEXYAD has been developing an Artificial Intlligence - based software component that monitors the driving risk that an AD system is currntly taking (at each moment). It is the risk in terms of road safety (not the inherently functional safety of the AD system).It is the first time that the driving risk is explicitely computed and available in a car.Then the AD system can be aware of th risk it is currently taking.If risk is too high, it is possible to apply...

New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Musk says

New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Musk says An update to Tesla's Autopilot software coming in August will enable "full self-driving features" for the automaker's electric cars, chief executive Elon Musk says. Musk's comments come amid a race by automakers and tech firms to roll out fully autonomous vehicles, but also rising concerns about the safety of robotic systems. The Tesla founder made the disclosure in a Twitter conversation, responding to a user who complained about issues with Autopilot, which is currently... [Lire la suite]

Tesla Could Have Full Self-Driving Cars On The Road By 2019, Elon Musk Says

Tesla Could Have Full Self-Driving Cars On The Road By 2019, Elon Musk Says Speaking with Recode's editor-at-large Kara Swisher, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said he's confident that the carmaker will achieve full self-driving next year, in 2019, ahead of any other car manufacturer. "I don’t want to sound overconfident, but I would be very surprised if any of the car companies exceeded Tesla in self-driving, in getting to full self-driving," confided Musk. "They’re just not good at software. And this is a... [Lire la suite]

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5 Waymo and Tesla both have the same goal toward fully L5 driverless self driving cars, but they differ in approach from a design and engineering philosophy. Elon Musk relies on computer vision systems that use a combination of ultrasonic, radar and camera devices. Waymo on the other hand use a very fundamental device among driverless car makers and that is LiDAR. Elon believes Tesla can rely on it’s sophisticated hardware with AI software while Waymo implements LiDAR at the... [Lire la suite]

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY Car manufacturers like WAYMO and TESLA has been developing high value Autonomous (AD) systems that are said to be level 3. AD systems are complex architectures in a feedforward chain : . perception. Sensor fusion. Situation understanding and holding. Decision making. Actuators Such a feedforward chain is validated on crossings of use cases recorded in huge databases.The problem is that it is not possible to validate a feedforward chain on a database and know...

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking There is a software component called SafetyNex that can compute onboard (and not on the cloud), in real time (and not on a back office server one week after), at each moment (i.e. 20 times per second), the risk that driver is currently taking. This driving risk is computed with anticipation. The software component is called SafetyNex, proposed by the company NEXYAD (We Save Lives). If driver is a human being, it has been shown that alerting driver a few... [Lire la suite]

Tesla CEO Elon Musk: ‘self-driving will encompass all modes of driving by the end of 2019’

Tesla CEO Elon Musk: ‘self-driving will encompass all modes of driving by the end of 2019’ lon Musk has often updated his timeline for fully self-driving vehicles and today, he updated again when talking about the advent of artificial intelligence. Tesla’s CEO now says that he expects the technology will start to be widespread in any aspect of driving as soon as within “the next 18 months.” Musk’s timeline for the advent of self-driving technology is especially interesting to many Tesla owners who bought the automaker’s recent...

By 2021, you could be sleeping behind the wheel of an autonomous Volvo XC90

By 2021, you could be sleeping behind the wheel of an autonomous Volvo XC90 By 2021, you could be sitting behind the wheel of a truly driverless Volvo. The Swedish automaker’s research and development chief recently told The Car Connection that the company is planning to sell a Level 4 self-driving crossover SUV in 2021. Level 4 autonomy describes cars that can drive themselves without any human interaction, other than entering a final destination. According to Volvo Senior Vice President... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles

Self-driving cars: A level-by-level explainer of autonomous vehicles   SAE International (aka the Society of Automotive Engineers), a professional association that often sets industry guidelines, stepped in to provide a helpful level-by-level guide. First published in 2014, these J3016 guidelines have become the industry standard, having been adopted by both the US Department of Transportation and the United Nations. On the road to self-driving, autonomous cars, there are six levels of automation, according to... [Lire la suite]
