The chipmaker admitted it had worked with the company during the design of its compute platform to allow autonomous cars to process information in real time. The announcement marked the first time Waymo, formerly Google's autonomous program, has acknowledged a collaboration with a supplier. Intel began supplying chips for then-Google's autonomous program beginning in 2009, but that relationship grew into a deeper collaboration when Google began working with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCHA.MI) to develop and install the company's autonomous driving technology into the automaker's minivans.

Ford admits role in CAR SEAT costume 'driverless' stunt

Daily Mail

Last month, a bizarre video showing a man disguised as a car seat while driving a silver van went viral, before it was revealed that the stunt was part of an autonomous car test. The test was designed to learn how hand waves and other informal language between pedestrians and drivers - and the lack thereof when cars go driverless - affects driving. It's been known the viral video showing a man disguised in a car seat costume controlling a silver van was part of a self-driving car test and not just a spoof, but it's now been revealed Ford was in on it In August, Virginia residents were shocked to see a car with no driver on the streets. Occupying 32 acres at the University's North Campus Research Complex, M City includes approximately five lane-miles of roads with intersections, traffic signs and signals, sidewalks, benches, simulated buildings, street lights and obstacles Occupying 32 acres at the University's North Campus Research Complex, it includes approximately five lane-miles of roads with intersections, traffic signs and signals, sidewalks, benches, simulated buildings, street lights, and obstacles such as construction barriers'At Ford, we believe developing self-driving vehicles is about more than just the technology itself, so we're working to design, test and advocate for a standard way for autonomous vehicles to easily communicate their intention to people on the streets and roads on which they will operate,' Shutko said.


Why Researchers Dressed as a Car Seat to Teach Self-Driving Vehicles to Talk

WIRED

Virginia Tech Transportation Institute took credit--nay, responsibility--for car seat man but wouldn't reveal more. Car seat man was part of a Ford-funded study by researchers at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute into how autonomous vehicles will interact with humans on the road. It's hard to know, because when driverless cars test on public roads today, they're not really driverless. Now Ford and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute have 150 hours and 1,800 miles of new data to determine how their autonomous vehicle language works in the real world.


Trump camp updates U.S. self-driving car guidelines as more hit the road, paring safety assessment points

The Japan Times

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN – The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled updated safety guidelines for self-driving cars aimed at clearing barriers for automakers and tech companies wanting to get test vehicles on the road. The guidelines also make clear that the federal government -- not states -- determines whether autonomous vehicles are safe. There is nothing to prohibit California, for instance, from requiring human backup drivers on highly automated vehicles, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration would discourage that. California, which is the only state that requires automakers to publicly report crashes of autonomous test vehicles, said Tuesday it was reviewing the new guidelines.


Driverless taxis could hit the streets of London in 2019

Daily Mail

An driverless car firm based in Cambridge has raised £14 million ($16.4 million) in funding - Europe's largest investment in an autonomous car start-up. It hopes to develop a driverless car system tailor-made for the continent's ancient network of roads. Five AI plans to test it's Uber-like service that would allow people to order driverless rides through a smartphone app in south London in 2019.

Toyota Hilux review: 'A work horse, not a fashion pony' Martin Love

The Guardian

As we prepare for a driverless future, the UK's leading distributor of motoring parts, Euro Car Parts, has revealed how the introduction of autonomous vehicles will affect city landscapes and the environment across the world. Key findings from the research include the reduction of parking space in cities, wireless communication with traffic signals, emission-free transportation and constant circulating fleets of self-driving cars as public transport services. Paul Baylis, head of communications and PR at Euro Car Parts said: "The introduction of driverless cars across the globe is a huge technological feat for the automotive industry but we also want to show how this new innovation will affect the world around us. From the width of roads to the reduction of parking spaces and cleaner air across cities, this visualisation and research makes some really interesting revelations about how the landscape and environment will adapt to these changes in the automotive industry."



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.
