Samsung will test its mysterious self-driving cars in the U.S.

Mashable

The California DMV just gave the South Korean tech company permission to test autonomous vehicles on the state's public streets, signaling a new expansion of Samsung's self-driving program. The agency keeps a running tally of all the companies with permission to test self-driving tech on its website, which has become a veritable who's who of the autonomous development space. Samsung's driverless car aspirations haven't been nearly as publicized as many of the other companies racing to develop autonomous systems. South Korean officials gave Samsung permission to test self-driving cars on public roads back in May, but little else is known for certain about the program.


Apple's 'Star Wars' self driving car spotted

Daily Mail

The roofracks contains dozens of sensors, but primarily uses Lidar to'see' their surroundings, and Apple is now using Lexus SUV's, rather than the minivans that have previously been spotted In lidar -- or light detection and ranging -- scanning, one or more lasers sends out short pulses, which bounce back when they hit an obstacle, whether clouds, leaves or rocks. Apple joins a growing list of traditional car-makers, technology companies, and small start ups to test drive cars in California. Five people familiar with Project Titan spoke anonymously about the debates within the company's senior staff, including Project Titan's original head Steve Zadesky and design guru Jony Ive.

Apple could take on Uber with self driving car

The Apple Car is now just an over-glorified autonomous shuttle for Apple employees, says report

Mashable

The company's long-rumored Project Titan vehicle will instead debut in the form of a shuttle bus for Apple employees, according to a New York Times report. The self-driving shuttle service will be one of the first real-world tests of that new system, according to the New York Times report, which cites five anonymous people familiar with Project Titan. The actual shuttle service, dubbed PAIL (Palo Alto to Infinite Loop), will ferry company personnel between Apple's main campus and other offices around the Palo Alto area. Back in April, the California DMV granted Apple permission to test its autonomous system in three Lexus RX540h SUVs on the state's roads, one of which was reportedly spotted out in the wild -- but the rumored shuttle service will probably look more like the University of Michigan's MCity shuttle program launching this school year.


Apple's next self-driving phase is an employee shuttle

Engadget

Apple famously planned to build an entire self-driving car, but abandoned that idea to focus on autonomous vehicle technology à la Uber and Waymo. It reportedly plans to test the tech by building a self-driving shuttle (called PAIL, for Palo Alto to Infinite Loop) that will take employees between its current campus and the new "Spaceship" HQ. We already know, thanks to many leaks and rumors, that Apple hired "hundreds" of engineers dedicated to building an entire autonomous car in a plan dubbed "Project Titan." As expected, Apple will use another company's vehicle to test its PAIL shuttle, much as Waymo has with Chrysler.

The firms have established a startup support programme at Volkswagen's Data Lab to provide technical and financial support for international startups developing machine learning and deep learning applications for the automotive industry. Volvo Cars, Autoliv and Zenuity will use Nvidia's AI car computing platform as the foundation for their own advanced software development. Nvidia has partnered with automotive supplier ZF and camera perception software supplier Hella to deploy AI technology on the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) safety certification for the mass deployment of self-driving vehicles. The firms will use Nvidia's Drive AI platform to develop software for scalable modern driver assistance systems that connect their advanced imaging and radar sensor technologies to autonomous driving functionality.
