In Case You Missed It: AV News

  Here’s what’s happening in the world of autonomous vehicle (AV) technology this week: Forget Self-Driving Cars. Bring Back the Stick Shift. Are we becoming so reliant on technology that we’re no longer paying attention? A report from the National Traffic Safety Administration finds that one in five drivers have become so reliant on backup […]

How Autonomous Vehicles Could Solve China’s Major Infrastructure Problems

In 2009, China passed the United States, becoming the world’s largest and most dynamic automotive market. The continued explosive growth of the automotive market is overtaxing China’s automotive-related infrastructure, resulting in increased traffic congestion and pollution. Drivers in Beijing spend an average of 1.3 hours in their daily commute, more than three times as much […]

Autonomous Vehicles for Today and for the Future

Autonomous vehicle (AV) technology is set to become the biggest disruptor the automotive industry has seen in the past century. While some say the age of the AV is just around the corner, the consensus seems to be that Level 5 automation (that is, true driverless cars with no steering wheel or gas and brake […]

Will You Trust an AV to Make All the Driving Decisions?

While the technology behind autonomous vehicles (AV) is progressing, some say public AV availability for general use is at least 15 years away. This is mainly due to the reliability of AVs, especially when it comes to the almost impossible moral and ethical decisions that need to be taken by the car’s artificial intelligence (AI) […]

How Will Car Maintenance Evolve In the Autonomous Vehicles Era?

Imagine the day when your car not only diagnoses its own maintenance needs, but schedules its own appointment and then drives itself to the shop, leaving you with plenty of free time to do as you please. This scenario is a distinct possibility in the autonomous vehicles (AV) era. Artificial intelligence (AI) will be used […]

String of Setbacks Halts Several Autonomous Vehicle Tests

While many believe the autonomous vehicle (AV) is a form of artificial intelligence (AI) that could ultimately help reduce the number of people killed and injured on the roads each year, it seems that fatalities are inevitable. Last week, 49-year-old Elaine Hertzberg was struck and killed by an Uber self-driving vehicle in Tempe, Arizona. Although police […]

The Race to the Edge of the Network

Edge computing is a distributed, open IT architecture that features decentralized processing power, enabling mobile computing and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. In edge computing, data is processed by the device itself or by a local computer or server, rather than being transmitted to a data center. Allowing large amounts of data to be processed […]
