Self-driving features have been creeping into automobiles for years, and Tesla (TSLA) even calls its autonomous system "full self-driving." That's hype, not reality: There's still no car on the market that can drive itself under all conditions with no human input. But researchers are getting close, and automotive supplier Mobileye just announced it's deploying a fleet of self-driving prototypes in New York City, to test its technology against hostile drivers, unrepentant jaywalkers, double parkers, omnipresent construction and horse-drawn carriages. The company, a division of Intel (INTC), describes NYC as "one of the world's most challenging driving environments" and says the data from the trial will push full self-driving capability closer to prime time. In an interview, Mobileye CEO Amnon Shashua said fully autonomous cars could be in showrooms by the end of President Biden's first term.
South Korean telco KT has launched a 5G standalone commercial service for smartphone users and businesses to foster new technologies for autonomous cars and smart factories. The company said the standalone (SA) service would serve as an opportunity for 5G to be applied to other industries and 5G smartphone users. "We have prepared a SA service to provide customers with 5G that can give them a new value," KT's network strategy department head Kim Young-in said in a statement. The SA uses batteries longer than NSA and can provide a faster response rate. By utilizing the characteristics of 5G base stations, which are densely built, KT said that the SA would provide more sophisticated disaster text services from the end of this year after consultation with related agencies and system development.
Mobileye, a subsidiary of Intel, has expanded its autonomous vehicle testing program to New York City as part of its strategy to develop and deploy the technology. New York City joins a number of other cities, including Detroit, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo, where Mobileye has either launched testing or plans to this year. Mobileye launched its first test fleet in Jerusalem in 2018 and added one in Munich in 2020. "If we want to build something that will scale, we need to be able to drive in challenging places and almost everywhere," Mobileye president and CEO Amnon Shashua said during a presentation Tuesday that was streamed live. As part of the announcement, Mobileye also released a 40-minute unedited video of one of its test vehicles equipped with a self-driving system navigating New York's city streets.
For some people, cars are a status symbol. In any case, there is a litany of companies developing new features for private vehicles, each building a component that will make cars part of a network of fully autonomous vehicles--perhaps eventually making human drivers redundant. It's a future that was imagined in films like Minority Report, with pods taking people to their destination without the need for human intervention. Here are the most important pieces of cutting-edge technology from China that are already being used in cars and forming the foundation of fully autonomous vehicles. The Chinese government expects 50% of all new auto sales in the country to have partial self-driving technology by 2025, while L2 (assisted steering, acceleration, and braking) and L3 automation (vehicles drive themselves in certain settings, like on highways) are expected to make up 70% of car sales by 2030.
On February 25, the Shanghai Government announced its Implementation Plan for Accelerating the Development of the New Energy Automobile Industry (2021-2025). It proposes that by 2025, smart cars with conditional self-driving functionalities shall enter large-scale production, significant progress will be made to set up a standard system for testing, demonstrating smart cars. City officials noted that so far, Shanghai has opened 560 kilometers of test roads. A total of 152 vehicles from 22 companies have been issued with road test and demonstration qualifications, which make Shanghai the first amongst other Chinese cities.

Chinese tech giant Baidu and state-owned BAIC Group's ARCFOX Brand have teamed to build 1000 autonomous electric vehicles (EVs) for use as taxis over the next three years -- and claim they've cut manufacturing costs to just $75,000 apiece. The announcement claims the reasonable price is due to maturation in technology and mass production capabilities and makes the vehicle, called the Apollo Moon, only one third of the cost of average L4 autonomous vehicles. Apollo Moon has a projected operating cycle of over five years and is built on the fully electric midsize crossover SUV, Arcfox α-T. As for the tech, it uses the ANP-Robotaxi navigation platform, which is currently in pilot. Baidu claims the architecture can "reduce the weight of autonomous vehicle kits while sharing intelligent driving vehicle data to create a closed-loop information ecosystem."

Leading carmakers such as Ford Motor and Toyota Motor are catching up with tech giants in the global race to develop self-driving technology as indicated by new patent data. The two companies claimed the top two positions on a list of most competitive firms in terms of patents related to autonomous driving technology. The list was compiled by Nikkei and based on a survey of patents registered in the U.S. by the end of January conducted by Patent Result Co., a Tokyo-based company that analyzes such licenses. Ford and Toyota have overtaken Waymo, the autonomous car company owned by Google's parent company Alphabet, which topped the previous list made in July 2018. As self-driving technology edges closer to practical use, automakers are now threatening to one-up IT powerhouses that once led the pack, given their expertise in conventional car manufacturing.
