AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES The current debate around autonomous driving tends to focus on its potential impact in cities. We think that the perspective should be broader: Self-driving vehicles could be the key to reconnecting the countryside, part of the mobility solution for people living in rural areas. Rural populations are often isolated due to a lack of public transport options. Autonomous vehicles can fill the void and make a major contribution to mobility in these areas, boosting the quality...

A Self-Driving Freight Truck Just Drove Across the Country to Deliver Butter

A Self-Driving Freight Truck Just Drove Across the Country to Deliver Butter Plus.ai, an artificial intelligence startup in Cupertino, California, has engineered an autonomous driving system for commercial freight trucks. This week, it made the world's first cross-country trip of its kind to deliver butter to a small town in Pennsylvania. While this isn't the first time an autonomous truck has made a cross-country trip, it's likely the first time a commercial freight truck has made a real delivery like this. ... [Lire la suite]

Artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicle development

Artificial intelligence driving autonomous vehicle development Autonomous driving is one of the key application areas of artificial intelligence (AI). Autonomous vehicles (AV) are equipped with multiple sensors, such as cameras, radars and lidar, which help them better understand the surroundings and in path planning. These sensors generate a massive amount of data. To make sense of the data produced by these sensors, AVs need supercomputer-like, nearly instant processing capabilities. Companies developing AV systems rely heavily... [Lire la suite]

Emerging trends in the world of autonomous vehicles

Emerging trends in the world of autonomous vehicles The last few years have been favorable for the autonomous vehicle technology. Developing a driverless car has been a shared dream for Google, Apple, Tesla, Uber, and Lyft. For Uber and Lyft, autonomous cars are one of the means of cutting costs. However, saving big bucks are not the only benefits of autonomous cars. Factors such as lowering fuel consumption, reduce CO2 emission, and reduction in congestion are some of the major benefits of autonomous vehicles. According to a... [Lire la suite]

New Rules Could Finally Clear the Way for Self-Driving Cars

New Rules Could Finally Clear the Way for Self-Driving Cars For the first time, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is weighing in on autonomous vehicles with no driver behind the wheel—or no wheel at all. SINCE AN INTERNET search company named Google began testing self-driving vehicles more than a decade ago, the still-in-development technology has faced a niggling issue: The federal vehicle safety rules that govern car design assume that a human sits behind the steering wheel of each...
