Who Should Be Testing Autonomous Vehicle Technology And Where?

Every new technology ultimately needs to be exercised in the real-world environments where it will ultimately be deployed and this is especially true for safety critical technologies like many of those that go into modern cars. A recent interview with Duke University engineering professor Missy Cummings has spurred a vibrant discussion among some of my friends and colleagues about just how ready autonomous vehicle technology is and how quickly it should be deployed. While I very much agree that the potential benefits of the technology are enormous and need to be deployed, I agree with Prof. Cummings that it’s far from ready for prime time.

Three Arguments For and Against Toyota Buying Robot Company Boston Dynamics From Google

News reports abound that Google is putting robot developer Boston Dynamics up for sale, with Toyota reportedly being a likely buyer. The story of the possible sale was broken by Bloomberg Business. It reports that top brass at Alphabet, the new Google parent company, have put Boston Dynamics up for sale because of worries over the robot developer’s lack of near-future revenue potential, as well as rising tensions between execs at the two companies. Many media report that two of the most likely buyers are Amazon and Toyota. There are good arguments both for and against a Toyota – Boston Dynamics deal happening. Here are three of what I believe are the main arguments why this deal might / might not happen.

Automotive Regulatory Harmonization to Remain Unattainable Holy Grail

For decades, one of the biggest challenges faced by automotive engineers around the world has been often wildly divergent regulations for safety, emissions and fuel economy.

The latest person to try to bring this problem under control is Dan Nicholson, General Motors vice-president of global propulsion engineering and president-elect of FISITA.

2016 Chevrolet Camaro: Extending the Lineup with Turbo and Convertible Models

Camaro versus Mustang is perhaps the most celebrated rivalry in the auto industry. When one team makes a move, expect the other to quickly respond, going all the way back to the mid-‘60s when Chevrolet responded to Ford’s launch of the pony car segment in a mere two years—lightning fast in vehicle development terms. With such a long history it’s fitting the bowtie brand would introduce a four-cylinder 2016 Camaro not long after Ford did the same in its all-new 2015 Mustang. However, while Ford positions the turbo four as an upgrade from the base V6 model, with a $1,500 price increase and associated bump in both power and fuel economy, Chevy has taken the opposite tack, letting its turbo engine serve as the starting point for the 2016 Camaro.

Big Data + Satellites To Catalogue Physical World, Meet Your Robot Concierge

Last week an Alphabet satellite company, Skybox Imaging, got a name change (Terra Bella) and a new mission: Use Alphabet’s geospatial data resources and machine-learning capabilities to focus on image analysis. In other words, put eyes in the sky to catalogue the physical world – so when the killer machines come they know exactly where you’re hiding… Singapore hospitals are maintaining their reputation for being on the cutting edge by now trialing drones to deliver medicine, robots to help immobile patients avoid bed sores and the Internet of Things to ensure the elderly take their medication… Amazon.com is leasing 20 Boeing 767s as it moves one step closer to becoming its own logistics company…  There are about 10,000 known human diseases, and the chances are your doctor can only recall a couple hundred. But mobile app Babylon uses the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and big data to increase those odds by listening to symptoms better than human doctors. “The doctor will hear you now.” … Entertainment start-up Screening Room is now pitching the idea of subscriptions for watching first-run Hollywood movies at home on the date of release. Yeah, film exhibitors and producers hate the idea. Sean Parker, of Napster and Facebook fame, is leading the charge. Not sure why anyone thinks they need to see so many bad movies that quickly… Downloads of Facebook Lite, a stripped down version of the social network app is officially growing far faster than the bloated original. Naturally, it also tastes great and is less filling…. The National Parks Service wants to attract young volunteers to the nation’s parks so it did what every out of touch “old” does to be “hip”; it built a smartphone application. NPS executives, if you really want to attract Millennials, two words: “free Wi-Fi”…Under Armour’s Speedform Gemini 2 RE running shoes, will keep track of your steps, miles and general fitness activity even if you leave your fitness tracker or phone at home. Smart shoes for dumb people, I guess… Hilton and IBM built a tiny artificially intelligent concierge robot, below, to greet and assist hotel guests with amenities. How could you possibly be annoyed with a diminutive, three-fingered robot bearing news it’s impossible to get coveted restaurant reservations at such a late date…
