Chatbot Tracker: Speaking To Cars Via Smartcar PYMNTS.com

#artificialintelligence

Through the use of advanced artificial intelligence, Hasselhoff was able to have conversations with KITT. Although the intelligent connected car platform app is still just three years old, it has recently gained two significant partnerships: Tesla and Hyundai. While the TeslaBot is likely serving as the pilot for what's possible with chatbot car integration, Katta shared what's currently possible. The voice aspect may come in a similar format to how Facebook Messenger's chatbot offering has operated over the past year.


Google Glass: Shock update hints at return from the dead

Watch a Roborace's driverless car zooming around a track

Daily Mail

Roborace CEO Denis Sverdlov said the demonstration was a major milestone in the development of autonomous racing: 'Roborace is the only company in the world right now testing driverless technologies on city streets without a human in the car – this is something truly unique.' These include five lidars, two radars, 18 ultrasonic sensors, two optical speed sensors, six AI cameras, GNSS positioning and a powerful Nvidia Drive PX2 'brain' processor, capable of 24 trillion AI operations per second. Roborace first revealed the stunning 4.8-metre-long (15.7 ft), two-metre-wide (6.5 ft) vehicle at February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Will FedEx offer delivery by drone? The company's CIO offers a glimpse into its robotics plans

#artificialintelligence

Carter is responsible for setting the technology agenda across FedEx's various operating companies, including its planes-and-trucks Express shipping service and office-and-home Ground delivery service, which operate in 220 countries. He recently told MIT Technology Review about some of FedEx's emerging technology initiatives in artificial intelligence and robotics. Carter says the company is working with the startup Peloton Technology, whose semi-autonomous technology electronically links trucks into small caravan groups called platoons. Satish Jindel, who heads the transport and logistics consultancy SJ Consulting Group, thinks that FedEx is making the right bets for a closely scrutinized public company.


The End of Car Ownership

Wall Street Journal

And startups will spring up to develop services that this new ownership model demands--perhaps even create whole new industries around self-driving cars and ride sharing. A study by Deloitte Consulting, for example, estimates that the cost of personal car ownership is on average 97 cents a mile today but could drop by two-thirds in a world of shared, self-driving vehicles--a tipping point that could usher the technology into daily life for many people. As a result of both driverless cars and fleets of robot taxis, sales of conventionally purchased automobiles may likely drop. Zoox, a startup valued at more than $1.5 billion, is working on designing a robot taxi that takes the entire riding experience into consideratio


Self-driving shuttles are coming to the University of Michigan

Engadget

The University of Michigan is a hotbed for self-driving car research, so it stands to reason that students and faculty should use self-driving vehicles to get around, right? Mcity (the university's public-private partnership) is launching a free driverless shuttle service that will see two 15-passenger Navya Arma vehicles transport people between the university's North Campus Research Complex and the Lurie Engineering Center. The Mcity team will closely watch how people react to the shuttles -- whether or not they're aboard. Outside cameras will monitor how people behave around the vehicles, while researchers will also measure ridership numbers and patterns.

The Range Rover Sport's space-age technology even lets it negotiate T-junctions and roundabouts – and make way for approaching emergency vehicles. The Range Rover Sport's space-age technology even lets it negotiate T-junctions and roundabouts Jaguar Land Rover's Autonomous Urban Drive technology brings the UK car-maker a step closer to achieving so-called'level four' autonomy within the next decade. Two types of technology are being demonstrated: autonomous drive where the car drives itself, and'connected' drive, where vehicles on the road speak to each other over a sophisticated form of wi-fi. Jaguar Land Rover's Autonomous Urban Drive technology brings the UK car-maker a step closer to achieving so-called'level four' autonomy within the next decade JLR said it is developing both fully and semi-autonomous vehicle technologies to offer customers a choice of being driven completely by the car – or controlling it themselves but with an added hi-tech safety net.
