Watch the video Mobileye says casts doubt on every other autonomous car project

watch the video mobileye says casts doubt on every other autonomous car project

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Intel’s autonomous car division, Mobileye, has released a new video showing one of its self-driving cars in action, an unedited 40 minute stretch of the vehicle navigating a challenging urban environment. In the process, Mobileye – which was acquired by Intel in early 2017, in a deal worth over $15 billion – raises questions about the path to autonomous driving taken by most other projects, Tesla and Waymo included.

Driverless vehicle demos aren’t uncommon, of course. One of the easiest ways to drum up hype about a Level 4 or Level 5 self-driving car project is to stick a camera inside it – and, optionally, a few journalists – and send it off on a city route.
Neither is it the first time we’ve seen a Mobileye-powered prototype in action, and indeed we had a front-row seat of the tech at work in a Delphi prototype three years ago. Still, the company’s latest footage goes further than most. The video, Mobileye says, is unedited, and there’s only one interruption: that was when the drone the company had following the autonomous vehicle needed a new battery swapped in.

What’s interesting – and fairly unique – about Mobileye’s approach here is that the whole 40 …

Autonomous vehicles law and regulation in this new area – FleetPoint

autonomous vehicles law and regulation in this new area – fleetpoint

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

With new 5G technology pushing digitisation in all industries to its next phase, the future of the transport and fleet industry is certainly one to watch. Just recently, it was announced that autonomous vehicles will be able to use this network to communicate with each other, alerting other vehicles about hazards in the area. However, technology is a constantly evolving phenomenon which often develops at a rate faster than the laws designed to regulate it and implement it successfully into UK infrastructure. With AVs being an exciting and inevitable aspect of the fleet industry’s future, it’s vital that fleet managers ensure that they are fully in-the-know on the driver safety and insurance implications this will have for their business.
Liability of road accidents is one of the biggest concerns facing the fleet managers in the near-future as the industry incorporates AVs into its fundamental operations, and there’s no “one size fits all approach”. Manufacturers could be responsible when incidents arise due to product faults, but if an accident occurs due to a failure of coded technology, it is also possible that the programmer may be liable. Even in manual cars with a self-drive feature, the driver can …

Why Cyberattacks Will Be No Match For Autonomous Vehicles

why cyberattacks will be no match for autonomous vehicles

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Malware, ransomware, viruses, denial-of-service attacks – these threats can leave a business reeling as it struggles to recover. Others might not recover at all, but that hasn’t stopped most industries from treating cybersecurity as an afterthought. Unfortunately, this is how it has been handled since the first hackers emerged. It’s only when a company is hit that other players start to react, often scrambling to enhance their security in the hope that their business isn’t the next target.
Autonomous vehicles mark the first time that strategy has changed, with OEMs of all shapes and sizes looking to prevent the worst from happening rather than reacting. They understand that an automotive hack is about more than data or dollars and cents – it is about the safety of occupants and all those around the vehicle.
Automotive OEMs are striving to build security in at the very foundation of the vehicle to get ahead of any potential issues. They want it built into the intellectual property (IP) to ensure that semi and fully autonomous cars are safe and protected from security threats.
It starts before the assembly line
While it might be easy for other industries to disregard cybersecurity until it …

Autonomous car company Aurora increases hiring amid industry struggles

autonomous car company aurora increases hiring amid industry struggles

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Autonomous vehicle (AV) startup Aurora today announced it has roughly doubled its workforce to 500 people (up from 250 as of May 2019) and committed to hiring workers across the company as it welcomes 22 remote interns and a trio of executives.
Aurora’s hiring spree — which has a specific focus on mid- to senior-level engineers in software and infrastructure, robotics, hardware, cloud, and firmware — comes at a particularly fraught time for AV companies. The economic fallout from the pandemic has begun to take its toll, with even well-funded ventures like Cruise, Kodiak Robotics, and Ike shedding hundreds of employees collectively. (The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that another behemoth — Zoox, which also laid off employees — is in talks with Amazon about a potential buyout.) Against this backdrop, Aurora CEO Chris Urmson says the company remains in a “solid position” with enough runway to employ its existing team members (including its full-time vehicle operators) and to continue hiring as it advances the development of its full-stack autonomous platform.
“We are actively hiring and with the industry shakeup right now, there’s a lot of new talent on the market, an opportunity we intend to take full advantage of. Our mission to deliver the benefits …

Amazon (AMZN) Eyes Zoox to Bolster Self-Driving Initiatives

Information Access and Management (IAM) Platform powers IAM Network - 60,000 + engaged information professionals worldwide.

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Amazon AMZN is reportedly in talks to acquire Zoox, a developer of self-driving technology.Notably, the deal, which is supposedly in “advanced” talk stage, is in sync with the e-commerce giant’s aggressive efforts to strengthen presence in the autonomous driving space.We believe the deal will provide Amazon a strong exposure to autonomous driving space on materialization. This, in turn, is expected to provide a competitive edge to the company against the existing players such as Alphabet GOOGL, Intel INTC, Baidu and Yandex YNDX.Further, the latest move is in sync with the company’s commitment toward foraying into the uncharted territories in order to diversify business. These endeavours have been instilling investor optimism in the stock.Coming to the price performance, Amazon has returned 31.1% on a year-to-date basis, outperforming the industry’s rally of 19.4%. Autonomous Driving Holds PromiseIn this data-driven world, self-driving technology and vehicles are gaining strong traction. Moreover, autonomous driving space presents robust prospects in the near-term as well as in the long run.Amazon’s growing efforts in this particular market are likely to help in reaping the benefits from it. Apart from the latest move, the company has teamed up with companies developing driverless …
