Quadrotors need outside help to navigate and perform their remarkable stunts, whether it be a human behind the controls or an array of complex sensors placed around a room. But not this one. Developed by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, this drone is practically autonomous—which means it’s an actual…
Despite a recent ad campaign touting the new 2017 Mercedes E-Class and its “Drive Pilot” driver assistance system as the “first self-driving car,” you actually still have to actively drive it. Sorry.
Mobileye, a supplier of vision-based sensor chips for self-driving cars, has cited concern over the reputation of autonomous technologies following the ending of its supply deal with Tesla, likely due to the fatal crash involving a Model S in May.
We learned this morning that Google plans to continue to develop its autonomous vehicle technologies with Fiat Chrysler, but only because initial talks with General Motors fell through—for the exact same reason BMW and Daimler backed out of a deal to help Apple with their its vehicle development. So what’s going on?
Tesla Motors has sent out a software update for the Model S which tweaks the car’s Autopilot feature, as well as adding a feature allowing owners to autonomously park and “summon” the car.
The idea of streets swarming with robot-piloted vehicles paints a scary picture for some urban-dwellers. But a new project called FutureNYC showcases how autonomy will benefit New Yorkers, by highlighting what residents will get back when our cars can drive themselves.
The Los Angeles International Auto Show opened with the Connected Car Expo and the announcement of the creation of the Coalition of Transportation Technology established by the City of Los Angeles, which is quite possibly the most important urban planning project of the 21st Century.
Despite our international obsession with drones—both their awesome powers and terrifying repercussions—the truth is that they're an incredibly immature technology. And, like most immature technologies, that means they’re not quite all they’re cracked up to be.
The UK's Serious Fraud Office has been called in to investigate HP's allegations of wrong-doing by Autonomy .
HP has announced that the Department of Justice has opened a fraud investigation relating to Autonomy—the company that HP bought for $11 billion then ended up costing a further $9 billion.
The man who engineered HP's disastrous $11.1 billion purchase of Autonomy—a company whose accounting improprieties just cost the laptop behemoth a whopping $9 billion—is Léo Apotheker. So what does the man who let an acquisition of this size go through without proper due diligence think about the deal after today's…
All is not well at Meg Whitman's HP, we learned during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call this morning. HP just recorded a $9 billion devaluation of its assets stemming from serious accounting tomfoolery at a company that HP bought for $11 billion last year. Ouch.
Unless companies are suing each other over patents, you can expect a level of disconnected PR speak when companies talk on the record about each other. Unless you disrespect Oracle, then it's on.
Bloomberg reports that the HP board is going to meet soon to decide whether or not to fire CEO Léo Apotheker. And I don't see how that makes matters anything but worse.
