    2. Elektrobit Wants to Ramp Up Autonomous Driving with robinos

      Automotive technology is evolving more rapidly than ever. But compared to the overall tech world, innovations still materialize in production vehicles at a snail’s pace since carmakers are impeded by three- to four-year product cycles. Self-driving technology is also moving more quickly than anyone ever imagined.

      In a Google Future, Drivers May Exchange Their Data for Infotainment

      Drivers will continue to enjoy a growing assortment of connected features in their vehicles—as long as they’re willing to share some personal information. That might be the automotive future that Google envisions. In a recently published patent application, the company describes a system and method for delivering a wide range of content to motorists—everything from music to turn-by-turn directions.

    6. Should self-driving cars save passengers or pedestrians?

      Should self-driving cars save passengers or pedestrians?

      Self-driving cars are coming, bringing claimed advantages such as more efficient traffic management, reduced pollution and fewer accidents. However all accidents cannot be avoided and autonomous vehicles will have to decide the schematics of those accidents and who might be injured in those incidents: passengers or pedestrians. This is a moral dilemma that needs to be programmed and resolved in self-driving cars.

      People want other people’s self-driving cars to keep pedestrians safe

      Autonomous vehicles will likely become available in the near future. A new article published in Science raises a classical ethical question about how these cars should be programmed: should a car sacrifice its driver if doing so will save the lives of many pedestrians? The article found that participants generally do want cars to be programmed in this way for other drivers, but they don’t want their own cars to work this way.

      A team of ex-Apple engineers wants to improve your driving experience

      There have been a lot of rumors over the past year or so about Apple secretly working on a car. While we don't have anything concrete to report on that front, we do know that some former Apple employees have left the mothership to work on car-related tech. Their company is called Pearl, and it just emerged from stealth mode with a rather cool wireless backup camera system, called RearVision.

      The future of driving: a look at the car of 2026

      Ten years of development will usually see some pretty big changes in any product field – but in the car world, a decade is a veritable eternity. So what, exactly, will cars look like by 2026? Will Google, Tesla or somebody else have pulled off the fully autonomous car? Will you still be filling up at the pumps? And if you are, will it still be with petrol and diesel? What technologies will it sport inside? Are we talking head-up displays and augmented reality, or full Vulcan mind meld stuff?

      How to make money on the connected car

      A simple google search will pull up headline after headline with the same theme: Silicon Valley Takes on Detroit. A big disruption is coming, and we are getting a better idea of what that will look like. At TU Detroit last week, the flavor of disruption centered around the on-demand economy and autonomous driving. Independently, each is a massive disruption. Together, they will redefine transportation as we know it.

      Intel Leaps into the Cloud

      Surely you remember Intel. It is still the largest U.S. semiconductor maker, but has curiously faded from prominence. It was once at the top of the heap, riding the wave of desktop computer upgrades and exploiting its part in the WinTel alliance for all it was worth. Yet those days have passed. Businesses began migrating to a thin client, cloud-based computing model years ago and consumers moved to mobile.

      This autonomous, 3D-printed bus starts giving rides in Washington, DC today

      Yesterday, I visited the National Harbor facility, where final tweaks were being made on the 12-seat Olli for the unveiling. The place was bustling with workers who were wiring the minibus with sensors for self driving. Local Motors executives were getting ready for their most high-profile event to date perhaps since the Rally Fighter (which plays a part in next year’s Fast 8) was first shown in 2009.

      The Car Hacker’s Handbook digs into automotive data security

      In the coming age of autonomous cars, connected cars, and cars that can communicate with each other, the city’s infrastructure, our phones, and the entire internet of things, data security is going to be paramount. That’s why Craig Smith, who has spent 20 years working in banking and healthcare digital security, wrote The Car Hacker’s Handbook: A Guide for the Penetration Tester.

      Detroit Battles for the Soul of Self-Driving Machines

      Bibhrajit Halder left the Midwest and a job developing autonomous trucks for Caterpillar about a year and a half ago to join Ford Motor in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the auto maker is working on self-driving vehicles. The Dearborn, Mich., auto maker, however, soon lost the software engineer to Faraday Future Inc., an electric-car startup luring auto industry veterans with Silicon Valley-like perks including stock options, free health care, catered lunches and foosball tables.

      The secret car that caught Steve Jobs’ eye – and may offer clues to Apple's own

      The email had one subject line: “Steve Jobs.” A few hours later, Bryan Thompson was on a plane to San Francisco to meet up with the rest of his small team who’d been working on a small, lightweight and ultra-modern prototype car called the V-Vehicle. Jobs, the team was told, was an informal advisor to the investors, and curious about the project.
