PostHeaderIcon Hands-on look at Android Automotive

Google is looking to enter the automotive infotainment operating system market with Android Automotive OS, not to be confused with Android Auto, a system that is already included in the infotainment system of most new cars and allows users to display their phone operating system on a car’s infotainment system. Android Automotive OS is different, and it is actually a fully-fledged operating system specially designed to have all the functions we’ve come to expect from automotive infotainment solutions.

PostHeaderIcon Audi Just Teased the AI:Me, Yet Another Tiresome Self-Driving Concept Car

Audi has released sketches of its new concept car called the AI:me that will be unveiled at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. The AI:me is Audi’s vision of a fully autonomous city car. The basic outline reminds you of the Audi A2, but with not so contemporary and conventional looks. Unlike the automaker’s last concept, the Q4 e-tron EV, this one looks like a far-fetched thought. Will it hit the production line anytime soon?

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Adds a New Advanced Tailgater Feature to Autopilot Self-Driving System

Tesla is at the forefront of autonomous driving tech in the automotive industry, but competitors are hot on its heels trying to match the broad array of features provided by its Autopilot system. Now the EV maker is consolidating its position as a leader in this field with its newly released Advanced Tailgater mode that will be added for free to all Autopilot-equipped Tesla models via an over-the-air update.

PostHeaderIcon BMW’s Latest Video Proves that Even The Dead Are Afraid of Self-Driving Cars

The age of autonomous or self-driving cars is slowly creeping up on us and, with each new year that passes, semi-autonomous technology is getting better and better as we inch toward the day when human driving could be outlawed altogether. With that said, a recent report provided by Cox Automotive points out that 84-percent of people surveyed would still prefer the option of driving themselves, leaving just 16-percent of those surveyed willing to give up full control. To make matters worse, the overall acceptance of self-driving technology over the last two years has fallen by 18-percentage points. That probably, at least in part, comes thanks to recent high-profile autonomous car accidents, like the fatal accident with one of Uber’s self-driving cars. As such, it’s not surprising that automakers are scrambling to prove that their autonomous technology is safe – we can always trust them, right?

In the video you see below, BMW has chosen one of its autonomous test vehicles with the co-star being none other than a scary-looking ghost in the woods. Naturally, the self-driving car stops in the middle of the road, long before it could run over the scary ghost because, you know, self-driving technology is just that good. As the video proceeds, the ghost opens the car door to find nobody in the driver’s seat, gets scared, and scurries off into the woods like a very naughty mouse that was caught in your kitchen cupboard. Then we see the phrase “NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF” flash across the screen.

This video can be seen in one of two ways. The way BMW wants you to see it is that its self-driving technology is so good that it can even stop for a lifeless entity in the middle of a dark wooded road in the middle of the night – a place where no car (or driver for that matter) really has any business being anyway. That’s great- BMW’s self-driving tech will stop for anything. Not that I’d want my car to stop for a ghost, ghoul, goblin, or any other form of the undead – can you imagine how useless autonomous cars would be in a zombie apocalypse? Anyway, YAY; it is super safe.

I, on the other hand, look at this video a completely different way. First off, why was this self-driving car in the middle of the darkest, creepiest looking wooded road in the middle of the night? Maybe the car had gone rogue after the passenger stopped to take a leak. A brave soul that would have been. But, I digress. I think the real message here is that even ghosts – the leftover souls of those that once walked this earth – are scared of self-driving technology. Now, that, my friends, is something to take note of. If a creepy ghost walking down a dark road in the middle of the night, with clear intentions of scaring the hell out of someone, is scared of self-driving cars, then shouldn’t we be scared of them as well? Anyway, it’s just a thought. Enjoy the video!

PostHeaderIcon Renault EZ-Ultimo

The Renault EZ-Ultimo is a futuristic concept car that the French firm unveiled at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. A fully autonomous car, the EZ-Ultimo rounds out Renault’s trilogy of concept robo-vehicles designed for shared mobility. It joins the EZ-Go and the EZ-Pro, also unveiled in 2018.

Described as a “robo-vehicle for a premium mobility experience,” the EZ-Ultimo was developed for increasingly congested city traffic and to meet new urban trends in which more and more people drop personal cars in favor of shared car services. Powered by an all-electric drivetrain, the concept car is intended to be offered as a service for “a single trip, a circuit or a day booking” provided by premium travel companies and resorts. One of Renault’s most luxurious vehicles ever, the EZ-Ultimo previews a production car that might become available over the next decade.

Update 3/28/2019: We stopped by Renault’s booth at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and got some good shots of the Renault EZ-Ultimo. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of the page!

Tesla has unveiled the final entry in its S3XY all-electric lineup – the 2020 Model Y!

PostHeaderIcon Arizonians Are Not Happy With Waymo’s Autonomous Vehicles

In the light of recent events, one thing is clear – not all people are ready to adopt new technologies. We have been hearing the ICEing cases where ‘Bro trucks’ block the supercharging stations and not allow EV owners to charge their vehicles. Now, people in Arizona are showing their anger towards Waymo’s autonomous cars in Arizona by attacking them.

PostHeaderIcon Toyota Showcases its “Toyota Guardian” Technology that Could Create Superhuman Drivers

Every automaker is working towards road and vehicular safety in some way or another. While most of them are doing it through autonomous technology, Toyota Research Institute had a breakthrough last year to fulfill its moral obligation towards road safety. In a nutshell, the technology, called “Guardian,” coordinates the skills of the human driver and the vehicle they’re driving. What’s even better is that Toyota intends to share this with other automakers as well.

PostHeaderIcon This Funky Little Electric People Mover from Bosch Will Debut at the Consumer Electronics Show

The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is just around the corner, and it comes as no surprise that the latest and greatest forward-thinking car concepts are just now trickling across our collective desks. The latest comes from Bosch, with this odd-looking all-electric, fully autonomous shuttle that promises big things for the future.

PostHeaderIcon Waymo Self-Driving Vans Are Literally Diving People Crazy in Arizona

There are two sides to autonomous technology and self-driving cars – you’re either with them or against them. Sure, there are a few people other there that are still on the fence over the whole thing but, for the most part, people love ‘em or hate ‘em. Some people, as in the entire state of Arizona, apparently, seem to hate them. They hate them so much that they have, essentially, started a war with Waymo self-driving vans and their safety drivers. And we’re not talking about just flipping them the bird or cutting them off in traffic. No; this is much worse and beyond extreme. How do guns, playing chicken, and constant harassment sound?

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Drove On Autopilot and Saved The Drunk Driver’s Life

We have been hearing stories about how the autonomous system has failed in cars and even killed people in some cases. How about we talk about a life-saving incident for a change? A 45-year old man in his Tesla Model S was spotted by the cops cruising on an expressway fast asleep. They chased the car for minutes before successfully stopping it. Imagine the dire consequences had it not been for the Autopilot system.

PostHeaderIcon Volvo and Google Come Together to Create an Android-Based Infotainment OS for Cars

The big news from Volvo’s booth at this year’s L.A. Auto Show isn’t about any new models, because there aren’t any. In fact, the automaker didn’t bring a single car. Instead, Volvo’s emphasis was placed on a new Android-based operating system that is currently being co-developed with Google, and it could eventually be seen spreading throughout the Geely-owned family of marques.

Technology is paramount for Swedish automaker Volvo, this much we’ve known for years. But Volvo took it one step further by using the L.A. Auto Show as a place to talk about its future technologies, not about a futuristic concept car or a world premiere of sorts. We don’t really know too much about the new infotainment system that’s in the works but judging by the alliance involved; it should be impressive once ready.

PostHeaderIcon Audi’s Flying Taxi Takes Off Successfully

While some companies are investing their time and money in autonomous car taxis, Audi has gone one step ahead with flying taxis. Audi, Airbus, and Italdesign have teamed up to present a flying and driving prototype of ’Pop.Up Next’ at the Drone Week in Amsterdam. Pop.Up Next is a basically a flying taxi that combines a self-driving electric car with a passenger drone. Sounds funky, right?

PostHeaderIcon Think You’ll Get Bored In a Self-Driving Car With Nothing To Do? Study Says You’ll Probably End Up Having Lots of Sex

An interesting study has concluded that self-driving cars will lead to passengers having more sex in the car, and could eventually turn out to be the go-to option for ‘sex for hire’ as well. Although it sounds a little hysterical for now, this could affect urban tourism a lot more than you might think.

PostHeaderIcon Waymo All Set To Launch Self-Driving Taxi Service Next Month

Waymo is on the verge of becoming the world’s first commercial self-driving taxi service. According to Bloomberg, Google’s autonomous driving division Waymo will launch the world’s first autonomous taxi service early this December. Waymo will launch this service under a new brand name that is yet to be disclosed.

PostHeaderIcon Bosch and Daimler Will Conduct Public Testing for New Autonomous Ride-Hailing Service in San Jose CA

Everywhere you look these days automakers scramble to put together their own autonomous vehicle program and ’lead the change.’ Just recently I was reporting on Uber’s desire to begin testing their autonomous Volvos again – and that’s not even a car company. Now, Daimler wants to introduce its own ride-hailing service, and it will use Mercedes-Benz S-Class models as its test beds.

The two German giants plan to deploy the pilot program as early as the first half of next year. The Mercedes S-Class models, which will be equipped with Level 4 or Level 5 automation, will be deployed on the streets of San Jose, California. Daimler Mobility Services is currently working on an app for your mobile phone which will allow you to summon a self-driving S-Class so you too can experience the joys of being driven around without having to put up with a driver asking you annoyingly personal questions.

PostHeaderIcon Ford To Invest In Microweather Technology For Autonomous Cars

Ever wondered what will happen to the autonomous cars when the weather conditions are bad? What if it’s raining and your self-driving car gets cold feet err., cold tires? Ford has given it a thought and invested in a company called ClimaCell. ClimaCell specializes in “microweather” technology capable of tracking location-specific, short-term weather patterns; and it has caught Ford’s attention. The Blue Oval recently participated in a Series B funding round that raised $45 million for ClimaCell.

PostHeaderIcon In the Future Cars and Traffic Signals Will Talk To Each Other but Will it Happen Before Level 5 Autonomy?

The world’s top automakers are working towards creating a technology that would allow cars and traffic signals to communicate with each other. This way, there won’t be any major congestion, carbon footprint would be reduced, and there would be fewer accidents. Given the traffic conditions, this is the need of the hour, but is it feasible while humans are still behind the wheel and in control?
