Automated and Autonomous Driving Regulation under uncertainty

Automated and Autonomous Driving Regulation under uncertainty   Executive summary Many cars sold today are already capable of some level of automated operation, and prototype cars capable of driving autonomously have been - and continue to be - tested on public roads in Europe, Japan and the United States. These technologies have arrived rapidly on the market and their future deployment is expected to accelerate. Autonomous driving promises many benefits: improved safety, reduced congestion and lower stress for car... [Lire la suite]

Marking roads to make them safer for self-driving cars

Marking roads to make them safer for self-driving cars With a wealth of fascinating technologies being developed specifically for autonomous driving the possibilities are appearing endless, from neural networks to advanced sensors. However, there is a less glamorous technology, which may hold just as much importance, but will not get all the glory- the roads. However, there is a less glamorous technology, which may hold just as much importance, but will not get all the glory- the roads. Around the world, researchers have... [Lire la suite]

A Google car expert told us there's one thing that could seriously delay self-driving cars

A Google car expert told us there's one thing that could seriously delay self-driving cars The Department of Transportation wants cities to be smarter. That's why it formed the Smart City Challenge, a contest that challenged cities to draw up plans showing how they would make their city smarter to integrate emerging technology like self-driving cars. The winning city will receive $40 million and will be announced this month. And it's not just the DOT that thinks cities need to be smarter to prep for driverless... [Lire la suite]

Baidu’s self-driving cars begin public test in Wuzhen, China

Baidu’s self-driving cars begin public test in Wuzhen, China Internet giant Baidu is fast-forwarding its own self-driving car tests with a new public trial of autonomous vehicles, including cars supplied by Chinese automakers BYD, Chery and BAIC. The public tests opened for passengers on Tuesday, and have ferried around 200 people, as of today, across a 3.16 km (around 2 miles) stretch of road in tourist destination Wuzhen, which has been “mapped with centimetre accuracy,” according to Baidu. The driverless vehicles are... [Lire la suite]

10 Features We Want to See in Self-driving Cars

10 Features We Want to See in Self-driving Cars   By now, we've all seen pictures of self-driving cars, like Google's fleet of Priuses with freaky rigs on their roofs, or completely driverless cars, like Google's latest cute little guy, which doesn't even have traditional controls for humans to use. Think about this: We may someday have to explain to our grandkids what a steering wheel was. Probably at the same time we're explaining to them why we clung to our old gasoline burning engines for so long — and that's the reason... [Lire la suite]

American Cities Are Nowhere Near Ready for Self-Driving Cars

American Cities Are Nowhere Near Ready for Self-Driving Cars WHEN SELF-DRIVING CARS get here, they’ll make our commutes more efficient and allow us to get the kids to soccer practice without disrupting mom and dad’s work days. They’ll conserve resources, boost mobility for seniors and others who can’t, and make deadly traffic accidents all but disappear. It’s all great stuff. But the impact of self-driving cars will go deeper than even that, according to researchers at the Illinois Institute of Technology, who’ve... [Lire la suite]

Beverly Hills wants to upgrade its public transportation with self-driving cars

Beverly Hills wants to upgrade its public transportation with self-driving cars Futurists have suggested that one day, self-driving cars might augment or even replace public transport, but for the town elders of Beverly Hills, this future is nearer than you'd think. Earlier this month, the city's council voted unanimously to create a program to "develop autonomous vehicles as public transportation." The council's vision is for self-driving vehicles to provide "on-demand, point-to-point transportation," with citizens... [Lire la suite]

Analysts lay out conflict between old fogies and youngbloods on self-driving tech

Analysts lay out conflict between old fogies and youngbloods on self-driving tech In my day, we drove ourselves 10 miles to school and back and we liked it. Don’t be surprised at hearing this spin on an old platitude, as the recent J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Tech Choice Study revealed that younger people are more open to changing automotive technology than their elders are. This should impact the acceptance of automated features as more car makers implement the technology. According to the study, consumers in general... [Lire la suite]

US reveals $4 billion plan to roll out self-driving cars within a decade

US reveals $4 billion plan to roll out self-driving cars within a decade The US Department of Transportation has unveiled a plan to eradicate accidents on American roads by increasing the number of self-driving vehicles. The US government has pledged $4 billion (£2.8 billion) towards improving autonomous vehicles and providing the infrastructure to support them. Department of Transportation head Antony Foxx championed the safety benefits that would be provided by a network designed to limit human involvement in the... [Lire la suite]

Nvidia announces ‘supercomputer’ for self-driving cars at CES 2016

Do you like teraflops? By Dieter Bohn Nvidia is kicking off CES 2016 with its traditional first keynote. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang wasted no time getting to the "punchline," a new computer for cars he's calling the Drive PX2, the follow-up to last year's Drive CX. Nvidia is famous for throwing out big numbers to tout the power of their processors, and many of them were mentioned here on stage. Its processing power is supposedly equivalent to 150 MacBook Pros, all sitting in a computer that's about the size of a lunchbox. It has... [Lire la suite]
