Apple chief: driverless car venture is ‘the mother of all AI projects’

Apple chief: driverless car venture is ‘the mother of all AI projects’ Tim Cook confirms tech giant is working on ‘autonomous systems’, but is tight-lipped on whether it is making its own vehicle. Apple has shed new light on its top-secret driverless car project, as chief executive Tim Cook described the challenge of building autonomous vehicles as “the mother of all” artificial intelligence projects. Cook said Apple was ploughing resources into developing technology to control driverless vehicles, although he... [Lire la suite]

Russia takes the fast lane into the world of driverless vehicles

Russia takes the fast lane into the world of driverless vehicles The test drive at FEFU will be held jointly with the company behind the project, Bakulin Motors Group (BMG), reported the university's press office.  Other Russian companies, however, are also deeply involved in the development of autonomous vehicles. For instance, the famous truck maker Kamaz, and the Internet company, Yandex, announced plans to create a driverless buses and cars.   Matryoshka M2B8, a self-driving... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Bicycle Hopes to Change Public Transit

Self-Driving Bicycle Hopes to Change Public Transit Unlike Google’s April Fool’s Day video (watch below) that showed a self-driving bicycle navigating its way around Amsterdam, the work being done by University of Washington Bothell professor Tyler Folsom is no joke. Folsom and crew are trying to ensure bicycles are included in the movement toward self-driving vehicles. The UW Bothell team is building a self-driving tricycle that can travel at speeds up to 30 MPH with a 15-mile range. The team claims the self-driving... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving Volkswagen completes 1,500-mile Mexican trek

Self-driving Volkswagen completes 1,500-mile Mexican trek As self-driving vehicles seem to be steering themselves ever closer to the mainstream, a team of researchers has completed Mexico's longest-ever journey in an autonomous car, traveling 1,500 miles in a special high-tech Volkswagen. Raul Rojas, a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, led a team that traveled from Nogales to Mexico City this month. The car used for the journey, a 2010 Volkswagen Passat station wagon named Autonomos, was sent to Reno from Berlin, where... [Lire la suite]

The autonomous car’s reality check

The autonomous car’s reality check   A CAR sprouting a dome containing a spinning laser sensor and festooned with cameras barely draws a second glance as it edges through the crowded streets of Berkeley. Self-driving cars are no longer a rare sight on Californian roads. Over 100 autonomous vehicles from a dozen manufacturers are now being tested in public, covering hundreds of thousands of kilometres each year. But this car is different: its human driver keeps his hands firmly on the wheel. The vehicle, nicknamed “George” by... [Lire la suite]

Challenges in Autonomous Vehicle Testing and Validation

Challenges in Autonomous Vehicle Testing and Validation Software testing is all too often simply a bug hunt rather than a wellconsidered exercise in ensuring quality. A more methodical approach than a simple cycle of system-level test-fail-patch-test will be required to deploy safe autonomous vehicles at scale. The ISO 26262 development V process sets up a framework that ties each type of testing to a corresponding design or requirement document, but presents challenges when adapted to deal with the sorts of novel testing problems...

Google’s self-driving cars will hit public roads this month

Google’s self-driving cars will hit public roads this month We weren’t sure how this year’s North American International Auto Show was going to fare considering all of the car news at CES 2017 last week, but the Detroit show got off to a big start on Sunday. Waymo, the new company formed when Google spun off its autonomous car division in 2016, announced that its first fleet of self-driving minivans will hit public roads later this month. Read more...

Driverless cars: Don’t ignore the human factor

Driverless cars: Don’t ignore the human factor Tesla Motors has announced what is thought to be the first fatal accident in one of its electric, self-driving cars that was under its own control. Details are unclear, Tesla said the accident happened on a divided highway when a tractor trailer, or articulated lorry, drove across the highway “perpendicular to” the car and continued. “Neither Autopilot nor the driver noticed the white side of the tractor trailer against a brightly lit sky, so the brake was not applied”, reports say. ...

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]

Exponential Technology and the Self-Driving Car‏

Exponential Technology and the Self-Driving Car‏ On a crisp autumn day, two sleek Mercedes sedans smoothly joined the flow of traffic on French Autoroute 1 near Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport. For hours the two vehicles drove along the highway in heavy traffic, passing other cars when necessary. Although no obvious signs distinguished them as unique, close observation would reveal that both were autonomous vehicles, driving themselves with human-level competency. Self-driving vehicle...
