Singapore To Test Volvo’s Full-Sized Self-Driving Buses

One of the upsides in a world where we all sit in self-driving vehicles is that accidents between vehicles will theoretically be minimal, and that everyone should arrive on time. This is particularly important especially with public transport, and this is something that Singapore is hoping to build on.


Apple’s Self-Driving Division Layoffs Have Been Confirmed

For a couple of years now, it hasn’t really been much of a secret that Apple could be working on a self-driving car, or at least tech that could help self-driving cars. More recently it was suggested that due to poor iPhone sales, Apple’s budget for other projects was reduced and that they could be looking to scrap or scale back its self-driving car program.


Tesla To Get All Self-Driving Car Features By End Of The Year

Tesla has avoided marketing its autopilot feature as a self-driving car feature, but it seems that could change in the near future. Speaking on a podcast with Cathie Wood and Tasha Keeney of ARK Invest, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk mentioned that his company’s cars are expected to get all the self-driving features by the end of the year.


Canadian Government Invests $40 Million Into BlackBerry For Autonomous Cars

It’s not hard to imagine that in the future, self-driving cars will become the norm. This isn’t a surprising development as self-driving cars will most likely lead to safer roads as cars will (mostly) be driven at uniform speeds, and will probably have quicker reaction times compared to human drivers who can sometimes be distracted.

University Of Toronto Now Offering A Course On Self-Driving Cars

Self-driving cars appear to be the way of the future, and even if they are not, teaching a vehicle on how to be autonomous, look out for obstacles, and navigate its way around certainly has a number of possibilities attached to it. It seems like a field that could expand in the future, so much so that the University of Toronto has decided to start offering a course on self-driving […]


Apple Employee Arrested For Allegedly Stealing Apple’s Self-Driving Car Secrets

Apple’s self-driving car project has remained a mystery for years ever since it was revealed that the company was working on it. This is because Apple has not really talked much about it, and also the company is notorious for being very secretive with their projects. However it seems that the company’s secrets almost got leaked by an industry spy.


Apple’s Project Titan Might Have Been Researching A Smart Seatbelt

Usually the people sitting in the front of the car are the ones who get to control the car’s infotainment system. However it appears that Apple could have been exploring an idea of allowing passengers at the back to control the system as well, which according to a patent seems to suggest the involvement of a smart seatbelt system.


Alps Alpine Next-Gen Driving Experience

As cars become more packed with sensors, computers, and connectivity, the possibilities to enhance the driver’s experience expand exponentially. Alps Alpine looks at how future components and technologies can change the driver experience from end to end.


Microsoft And MIT’s Model Can Spot AI Blind Spots In Autonomous Cars

Autonomous or self-driving cars can sometimes make mistakes. It all comes down to whether the AI that’s powering the self-driving system has trained enough to handle a particular situation on the road. Since these gaps in knowledge can result in dangerous mistakes from cars that drive themselves, Microsoft and MIT have come up with a solution to essentially fill in these gaps and detect the artificial intelligence blind spots in […]


Apple Confirms Reshuffling Of Its Autonomous Vehicle Project

Recently there was a report by an analyst who claimed that due to flagging iPhone sales, Apple might be looking to scrap its self-driving car program, also known as Project Titan. This is apparently due to lesser revenue earned from the iPhones, in which Apple would have a smaller budget to dedicate to other projects.


Analysts Claim That Apple’s Self-Driving Car Plans Could Be Scrapped

As many probably know by now, Apple is working on developing technology for self-driving cars. It was initially rumored that Apple might actually make the cars themselves, but recent reports have suggested that the company is more interested in the tech behind it than building the actual cars.


A Self-Driving Car’s Laser Reportedly Destroyed A Man’s Camera

Self-driving cars employ a whole host of sensors and technology that helps them navigate by themselves, detect obstacles, and so on. One of those technologies used is LiDAR, which is a laser system used to help measure distances. These lasers are rated to be safe to the human eye, but unfortunately it might not be safe for cameras.


Walmart Will Use Autonomous Vans For Grocery Delivery In Arizona

Walmart has announced that it will now be experimenting with autonomous grocery deliveries in Arizona. It’s doing this in partnership with Udelv, an autonomous vehicle company. The pilot program is going to take place in Surprise, Arizona. Self-driving vans that are custom-made for delivering fresh groceries will be used in this pilot.
