Real-Life Use Cases for Edge Computing

Depending on how many of the 30 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices forecast for global deployment by 2020 rely on the cloud, managing the deluge of IoT-generated data makes proper processing seem near impossible. Furthermore, traditional cloud computing has serious disadvantages, including data security threats, performance issues, and growing operational costs. Because most data […]

U.S. Postal Service Tests Autonomous Trucks in Two-Week Pilot Program

On 21 May 2019, the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) launched a two-week pilot program that utilizes self-driving trucks to transport mail from Phoenix, Arizona to Dallas, Texas. This test is a major step toward commercializing autonomous vehicle (AV) technology for hauling freight. The self-driving trucks traveled on major interstates throughout the pilot, which consisted of […]

Are We Ready for Pilotless Planes?

While the government’s vision is to have driverless cars on the road by 2021, new research shows that 57% of UK citizens wouldn’t feel safe in an autonomous vehicle (AV). However, nearly two-thirds of respondents said they feel safe when flying aboard an airplane. What many respondents may not realize is pilots train in a […]

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) […]
