Robots and humans

By Joann Muller 1 big thing: When robots and human drivers collide Illustration: Rebecca Zisser/Axios Self-driving cars won’t be here anytime soon, which means partially automated vehicles will have to coexist with traditional cars for many years. 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...

How IoT is Driving the Autonomous Vehicle Revolution

This article original submitted on IoTforall.com The concept of self-driving cars has always intrigued many people. We’ve seen it on television shows like Knight Rider and in films including Batman, Minority Report, and Total Recall. But within the last couple years, the idea is quickly turning into reality. The reason for this is the Internet of Things. The Internet of Things (IoT) refers to the connectivity of multiple devices through the Internet. Driverless cars utilize this connectivity when updating their algorithms based on user data....

7 Ideas To Pave The Way For Autonomous Vehicles

This article original submitted on forbes.com As more autonomous vehicles have taken to the roads, transportation expert Ben Pierce has been noticing ways the roads should prepare for them. “They can drive themselves, but boy we can really help them,” said Pierce, the transportation technology lead for the engineering and architecture firm HDR. In Chicago last week, Pierce suggested some big changes to infrastructure and some small changes to policies and procedures that can improve the performance of driverless cars and avoid...

People must retain control of autonomous vehicles

This article original submitted on nature.com PDF version Driverless vehicles are being tested on public roads in a number of countries.Credit: Prostock/Getty Last month, for the first time, a pedestrian was killed in an accident involving a self-driving car. A sports-utility vehicle controlled by an autonomous algorithm hit a woman who was crossing the road in Tempe, Arizona. The safety driver inside the vehicle was unable to prevent the crash. Although such accidents are rare, their incidence could rise as more vehicles that are capable of...

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

This article orginal submitted on guardian.com A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say The interior of a self-driving Tesla Model X. Photograph: Tesla Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that...

China is poised to lead in self-driving cars—and it’s not because of technology

This article original posted on qz.com China may adopt self-driving cars faster than the US, but not because of any technological advantage. A survey released Tuesday (Feb. 20) by TÜV Rheinland, a Germany-based technical services company, shows that the Chinese public is better poised to accept autonomous vehicles, mainly because they trust the technology and feel more secure about passing on their data than Americans. The company surveyed 1,000 people from both China and the US, aged 18 years and over and in possession of a driver’s license....

PEOPLE KEEP CONFUSING THEIR TESLAS FOR SELF-DRIVING CARS

This article original posted on wired.com WE ARE ENTERING a dangerous period in the development of self-driving cars. Today, you can buy a Cadillac, Volvo, Tesla, Audi, and even a Nissan that will do some of your driving for you, as long as you stay on top of things. It’s all part of the steady trek toward the fully autonomous vehicles that will let you fully check out, and catch an in-car movie or two on your way to wherever you’re going. But we’re not there yet, and a growing body of evidence shows that these partially...
