The consensus is that Waymo and GM are furthest along in the development of self-driving vehicles. This article takes a deeper look:
… and other questions. Such as, who will clean the trash left in an autonomous taxi and how do you know whether a self-driving vehicle is performing correctly? In an autonomous world, some connected services will disappear, while there’s a need for new ones. What are the opportunities?
To find out, read Connected Services for Fleets in Autopilot Mode.
All-electric vehicles as replacements for petrol-powered cars and trucks are seen as crucial for clearing the air, while truly autonomous vehicles for private and public transportation could make transport safer and more efficient. This article looks at the state of the industry today and what’s necessary to move forward.
With automakers firmly committed to producing autonomous vehicles, will self-driving features be seen as luxurious? How soon will they become expected, the way automatic transmissions and power steering are? This article explores how and whether car makers will handle messaging about self-driving features.
Blockchain is not all about bitcoin. I identified four promising uses for the technology in the automotive sector. (Forgive my editor’s jokey title.)
In the next 10 years, some form of artificial intelligence will be installed in 100 percent of new cars, according to IHS Markit.
This article describes current use cases for AI as well as the hurdles still to be overcome. One interesting idea from Luca DeAmbroggi of IHS is that there might be some kind of external certification process for an automotive AI — like a driver’s license.
There are plenty of good reasons why we’ll see autonomy in this sector first.
In fact, there are lots of interesting pilots already going on, as this article explains.
Artificial intelligence is a key enabling technology for self-driving and semi-autonomous cars. This report examines the areas where machine learning, deep learning and big data already are deployed, and what the next steps are.

The auto industry is firmly behind autonomous cars, and so is the U.S. government. But despite a lot of hoo-hah in the press, consumer interest is low.
Kelley Blue Book’s Future Autonomous Vehicle Driver Study surveyed 2,264 consumers aged 12 to 64 and found a strong disconnect between those of us in the auto-tech bubble and real-world folks.
This interview with Karl Brauer, executive publisher of Autotrader and Kelley Blue Book, goes over the findings. Bottom line: Consumer education needs to be better.
It’s becoming clear that level 3 #autonomous driving won’t be much fun — or very safe. Drivers will be expected to pay attention and stay ready to take control in an emergency, so what’s the point?
Experts explain why we’ll see a mix of truly autonomous vehicles and more advanced driver safety features instead of what has been proposed as the third level.
