BMW is back at CES next month with a self-driving i3 that finds a space in a multi-story car lot, parks itself, and comes back to the driver when summoned through a smartwatch app. And it doesn't even need GPS.
Hyundai recently held its Future Automobile Technology Competition in South Korea, pitting 12 teams against each other to see which autonomous tech comes out on top. Only four teams made it to the final round, and on the second day, disaster. A strange liquid fell from the sky.
Ken Laberteaux is a senior principal scientist for Toyota North America, and he's convinced that self-driving cars will increase pollution, exacerbate urban sprawl, and ruin our families. I'm pretty sure there's something in there about killing kittens too, but I may have missed it in his haze of pessimistic,… »
If Volvo had to appeal to Van Damme's epic split to sell more trucks, Hyundai just released this insane self-driving demonstration to try to sell their vehicles: A group of stuntmen jump from the roof of moving cars leaving them on their own. It's impressive to see the cars driving and braking without a driver. »
Autonomous cars are coming soon, people, maybe as soon as 2015 if you live in California. And with them will be a whole set of new rules and regulations when it comes to driving. Or, ahem, not driving. »
Tonight during its CES keynote detailed what it means about the future of mobility including self-driving cars and connected technologies. Importantly, it detailed the brain that will ultimately allow a car to drive itself—by rolling out its "piloted A7". The car is gorgeous, as for the brain, it looks like a massive… »
You might think you've got the most badass stroller at the playground, but it's got nothing on Xandon Frogget's creation which adds motors and a wireless steering system using a Wiimote controller. And thanks to an onboard Kinect sensor, his toddler can even drive it without the risk of crashing into anything. »
In a few short years Volvos-the fancy ones, anyway-will include a cruise-control system that lets your car drive and steer itself through crawling traffic. So if your daily commute involves a long stretch sitting in a jam, you'll be able to sit back and read a book, get caught up on work, or just keep your hands free… »
Google has added another family member to its autonomous vehicle program, and an eagle-eyed reader in Southern California caught the Big G's Lexus RX450h out and about during testing. »
Everybody's working on self-driving cars! Google, Ford, Volvo and now even the ultimate driving machine, BMW, is trying their hand at hands free driving. BMW's self-autonomous system uses four types of sensors, radar, cameras, laser scanners and ultrasound distance sensors and can even change lanes to zoom past a… »
This is not a Google Street View truck. It's actually a self-driving car. The car is part of a new research initiative that Google's been road resting: Artificially intelligent cars that drive themselves. »
So what, Lexus had its "self-parking" car. Big deal. A Chinese company has developed a car that, for all intents and purposes, drives itself. The car, a modified Hongqi HQ3, is able to stop at intersections, make turns, stay in between the lines (goodbye DUIs!) and, for good measure, complement the passengers. Right… »
