Are Self-Driving Trucks A Viable Option In Australia?

Are Self-Driving Trucks A Viable Option In Australia? For almost a decade now, robotic trucks have been hauling dirt and iron ore from mines and traveling through the Australian outback. However, due to their simple automation system, they are not allowed to traverse the highways and public roads because of a possible cause for accidents. But now it’s official. Self-driving vehicles are here. While road testing is still happening, driverless trucks are seen as a promising innovation for the Australia’s... [Lire la suite]

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency

Fleets using artificial intelligence to accelerate safety, efficiency “Artificial intelligence” (AI) may evoke fears of robots writing their own software code and not taking orders from humans. The real AI, at least in present form, is delivering results in the business world. Technology companies are using powerful computers and advanced statistical models to accelerate their product development. Most are not calling these efforts AI but rather machine learning. As a form of AI, machine learning is making it possible to quickly... [Lire la suite]

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking There is a software component called SafetyNex that can compute onboard (and not on the cloud), in real time (and not on a back office server one week after), at each moment (i.e. 20 times per second), the risk that driver is currently taking. This driving risk is computed with anticipation. The software component is called SafetyNex, proposed by the company NEXYAD (We Save Lives). If driver is a human being, it has been shown that alerting driver a few... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Trucks – Timelines and Developments

Self-Driving Trucks – Timelines and Developments While self-driving trucks and self-driving cars make use of much of the same technology to power their AI systems, it would be a mistake to think the expected roll out date of both developments to would be identical. Their similarities can easily mask their significant differences. The sheer weight of semi trucks creates unique technological challenges compared to self-driving cars. The substantial weight of trucks means the time it takes to stop a them is much longer... [Lire la suite]

Starsky Robotics Goes All-In On Driverless Trucks

Starsky Robotics Goes All-In On Driverless Trucks Another start-up tech company is aggressively staking its claim as an autonomous trucking technology leader. San Francisco-based Starsky Robotics has been touting a recent, 7-mile test run with no human interaction as well as a $16.5 million Series A investment in the company by Shasta Ventures. While most automotive companies exploring autonomous trucks insist that a driver will be mandatory for years to come, Starsky Robotics is going all-in on the early adoption of... [Lire la suite]
