That could get expensive.  The big picture: New cars are safer than ever thanks to crash avoidance technologies like automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. But all the safety gizmos in the world can’t prevent other, less-equipped cars from crashing into...

Apple’s Latest Acquisition Shows Self-Driving Cars Are in the Doldrums of Disappointment

Posted by on Jun 28, 2019 in Adoption, Business Models, Security, Technology | Comments Off on Apple’s Latest Acquisition Shows Self-Driving Cars Are in the Doldrums of Disappointment

×By DAVID Z. MORRIS June 27, 2019 Apple’s recent acquisition of autonomous vehicle startup Drive.ai throws a monkey wrench into the theory that it had backed away from an existing self-driving car initiative, known as Project Titan. Early this year, Apple laid off 190 Project Titan staffers, including more than 100 engineers. But now Apple is bring on more engineers from Drive.ai, along with the startup’s fleet of self-driving orange vans and, presumably, its patents and other intellectual property. On that basis, the...

Demand in doubt for fully autonomous cars

BY TAKAMITSU SAWA KIZUGAWA, KYOTO PREF. – At the June 2016 Paris Motor Show, one of the four major global auto exhibitions, Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG, revealed the German automaker’s new strategy expressed by an acronym CASE. C stands for “connected,” meaning that the driver of a future car will be able to receive services from information networks by being connected with cloud computing networks; A for autonomous driving; S for “sharing and services” and E for electric vehicles. These four letters brilliantly summarize a...

Axios Autonomous Vehicles

1 big thing: A wave of showy AV deals Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios Waymo has inked an exclusive partnership with the giant Renault-Nissan Alliance on autonomous vehicles, the latest in a dizzying array of headline-grabbing deals in the AV space. The big picture: Carmakers and technology companies need to work together on self-driving cars because neither industry has the expertise to do it alone. But some so-called partnerships lack substance or seem to be driven as much by ambition and the need for credibility and capital...

EVALUATING AUTONOMY IIHS examines driver assistance features in road, track tests

This article original submitted on iihs.org Curves and hills can challenge active lane-keeping systems. The Tesla Model 3 performed well in these on-road tests. On-road and track tests are helping IIHS craft a consumer ratings program for advanced driver assistance systems. Evaluations of adaptive cruise control and active lane-keeping show variable performance in typical driving situations, such as approaching stopped vehicles and negotiating hills and curves. The early results underscore the fact that today’s systems aren’t...
