10 Robotaxi Services — Existing & Planned

The number of existing or near-term robotaxi services has just multiplied rapidly, and sort of sprung itself on us in a surprising way. Here is a quick rundown of the services in place today or coming soon. read more : 10 Robotaxi Services - Existing & PlannedI cover self-driving vehicles and robotaxis quite frequently as part of this job. In fact, I think we were using the term "robotaxi" before I saw it used by any other media outlet, and certainly before it had become an industry norm.https://cleantechnica.com ... [Lire la suite]

Robotaxis: What’s The Difference Between 10x Better & 10x Safer?

When thinking of being a 10 times better driver — better in solving difficult situations — we get a completely different picture. In that case, we can remove all the victims of DUI, texting, dozing off while driving, disciplining the kids in the back seat, or plain stupid behavior like reckless speeding. That is about 90% of all accidents. The other ~10% of accidents are the result of the driver not being fast enough, not being experienced enough, having only 2 eyes (with none in the back of his head), and other normal...

An Autonomous Vehicle Is A New Medium

“You can have many views of what a computer is. My particular view is that a computer is a new medium. (…) A computer will be in the future more looked at in this way — as a delivery vehicle for software.” — Steve Jobs in 1995. For most, an autonomous vehicle (AV) is a car, but it also can be seen asa new medium — something that in the future will be seen as a delivery vehicle for software. It delivers software to you, and one part of its diverse software services is autonomous transportation. In that respect, the term autonomous... [Lire la suite]

Tesla: We’ll Have Full Self-Driving by 2020. Robo-Taxis, Too.

Tesla: We’ll Have Full Self-Driving by 2020. Robo-Taxis, Too. Teslas will be fully autonomous next year. The word, from Elon Musk, came just two days before a Tesla earnings-and-sales report that is not going to be kind to the company. The Tesla CEO and three Musk-eteers took to the stage Monday to announce fabulous, industry-leading breakthroughs in full self-driving (FSD) that will put Tesla cars and Tesla robo-taxis on the road as early as next year, in at least one market. The plan is to use two Tesla-designed chips that will... [Lire la suite]

Gauging the disruptive power of robo-taxis in autonomous driving

Gauging the disruptive power of robo-taxis in autonomous driving The self-driving taxi could ultimately take the global auto industry on a wild ride. Our use-case approach reveals why. Personal mobility could change profoundly in the next two decades. Consumers, who increasingly view mobility as a service, want more choices for traveling between points A and B, including ride hailing, car sharing, and perhaps even self-driving “robo-taxis.” For automakers, the proposed changes could replace the industry’s traditional emphasis...

Volvo looks to supply Uber with up to 24,000 self-driving cars

Volvo looks to supply Uber with up to 24,000 self-driving cars Uber plans to buy up to 24,000 self-driving cars from Volvo, marking the transition of the U.S. firm from an app used to summon a taxi to the owner and operator of a fleet of cars. The nonbinding framework deal could offer San Francisco-based Uber a way to overcome setbacks at its autonomous driving division in Silicon Valley’s race to perfect self-driving systems.     Combining Volvo’s cars with Uber’s self-driving system builds on their nearly three-year...

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai

You can now catch a Tesla taxi in Dubai Both the Model S and Model X vehicles will be available to commuters… Back in February we reported that the RTA had committed to buying 200 cars from electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla to add to its limo fleet. We’re not going to lie, we were pretty excited about the prospect of cruising down Sheikh Zayed Road in the back of one of Tesla founder (and real-life Iron Man) Elon Musk’s super-sleek, all-electric vehicles. Well, it looks like that dream is finally going to... [Lire la suite]

There will be a safety driver behind the wheel, so the trips will not be completely driverless. Unlike a normal Lyft experience, the cars will only travel to 20 preprogrammed destinations. companies that come to CES to demonstrate self-driving technology do so in closed parking lots where they can control every aspect of the experience....

AI should help increasing road safety for robot taxi allowing to put them in function soon

AI should help increasing road safety for robot taxi allowing to put them in function soon Robot taxis are under testing in many cities such as Phoenix Arizona. Globally it works but the issue is still the rate of accident. Human driver has an accident in average about every 70 000 km and there are about 3 deads every billion km. This very high performance of human driver makes it difficult to automate driving, especially in urban traffic where road infrastructure characteristics are very complex. This explain why tests long more... [Lire la suite]
