Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system

Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system This week, Tesla announced that all Tesla vehicles produced in their factory – including Model 3 – will have the improved sensors for full self-driving capability. Beginning with vehicles manufactured in late 2014, all new Tesla Model S vehicles come equipped with a camera mounted at the top of the windshield, forward looking radar, and ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers. Triggered by the deadly accident in this... [Lire la suite]

Why trucks are leading the way when it comes to autonomous technology

Why trucks are leading the way when it comes to autonomous technology Carmakers are making incredible advances when it comes to autonomous technology, but the first fully autonomous vehicles to hit the roads may actually be trucks, with the transport behemoths proving naturally suited to self-driving technology. Packaging Self-driving vehicles cram in an incredible amount of technology. There’s LiDAR, radar, a huge array of different cameras and other sensors, mapping and GPS and a computer that has to make sense of it all. If it’s... [Lire la suite]

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think As excitedly as we talk about it, you’d think the promise of fully autonomous vehicles is right around the bend, just another few miles and we’ll pull into our destination. In truth, we’re not there yet, and a few sceptics even suggest we’ll never get there — too many bumps in the road ahead. As engineers, we know that we’ll get to the holy grail of autonomous driving. The key questions are how long will it take, what’s the best route and how much will it cost? Let’s pull out... [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...

Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry?

Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry? Earlier I showed how Ford is driving in the right direction with big data, but basically the entire automotive industry should take advantage of the benefits of big data. Especially the automotive industry, where there are many moving parts that can be improved with sensors for data collection. When sensors within cars are combined with data from satellite navigations such as TomTom and traffic... [Lire la suite]

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars   Google is creating sensors that will enable its driverless cars to automatically detect police vehicles in the area, documents have indicated. Self-driving cars will be installed with technology that can identify approaching police cars and trigger an alert so that Google's vehicles can move out of the way or pull over to be questioned. In a US patent filing, the internet... [Lire la suite]

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match Drones and self-driving cars are two of the hottest topics in technology, and in some ways are made for each other. While autonomous cars can "see" all around them, their sensors are limited to a certain distance, whereas drones can scout obstacles and trouble far ahead.
