Tesla Self-Driving Buses, Trucks Part of Musk’s Master Plan
Elon Musk's Master Plan, Part Deux includes Tesla self-driving trucks and buses, both of which are in the early stages of development and should be unveiled some time in 2017. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationWhy Tesla Autopilot Should be Disabled
Consumer watchdog Consumer Reports is urging Tesla to disable its Autopilot semi-autonomous driving system following a series of crashes, one of which was fatal. Consumer Reports says that "consumers should never be guinea pigs for vehicle safety 'beta' programs." Future Tech · Driverless TransportationNissan ProPilot Eerily Similar to Tesla Autopilot
Nissan's ProPilot semi-autonomous driving system automatically controls the distance between the vehicle and the preceding vehicle, using a speed preset by the driver. ProPilot also keeps the car in the middle of the highway lane by reading lane markers and controlling steering, even through curves. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationTesla Autopilot Causes 2 More Accidents
A Tesla Model X driving on Autopilot crashed on Montana State Highway 2 while driving between 55-60 MPH. Neither the driver nor his passenger were injured in the accident, but it was serious enough to destroy the car. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationAftermath of the Deadly Tesla Autopilot Crash
Witnesses to the aftermath of deadly Tesla said Autopilot continued to drive the Model S for hundreds of yards. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationAutopilot Never Designed to Avoid Scenario of Fatal Accident
Mobileye said its technology that powers Tesla Autopilot wasn't designed to handle the scenario that led to the first fatal accident involving a self-driving car. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationTesla Autopilot Involved in First Fatal Self-Driving Car Accident
The Autopilot sensors on a Tesla Model S failed to distinguish a white tractor-trailer crossing the highway against a bright sky, resulting in the first fatal car accident involving a self-driving car. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationMissy Cummings: Self-Driving Cars Need to Happen
The head of Duke University's robotics program weighs in on whether self-driving cars will overcome a fatal accident, the irresponsibility of Tesla's Autopilot system, and when she'll be ready to adopt an autonomous vehicle. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationPodcast: Talking Self-Driving Cars with Brad Templeton
Brad Templeton joins The Robotics Trends Show to discuss self-driving cars, including looming federal regulations, Google vs. Tesla, convolutional neural networks and fatal accidents. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationHow AI is Making Self-Driving Cars Smarter
The stage is set for artificial intelligence to dominate our roads. Here's how artificial intelligence is improving self-driving cars. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationHas Tesla Lapped Google in Self-Driving Car Race?
Tesla customers have driven more than 100 million on Autopilot. That's a lot of self-driving miles, but is it enough to give Tesla the edge over Google in self-driving car development? Future Tech · Driverless TransportationHonda Self-Driving Cars Test Skills at GoMentum Station
Honda demonstrated prototype self-driving cars at the GoMentum testing facility in Concord, California. The Japanese carmaker said it plans to release its first self-driving car in 2020. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationA Case for Doubling Liability Insurance for Self-Driving Cars
For accidents caused by self-driving cars, the liability cost should be double that of a similar accident caused by human error. This would push carmakers to ensure their systems are at least twice as safe as human drivers. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationMini Stunt Car Puts Self-Driving Cars to the Test
Georgia Tech researchers are racing, sliding, and jumping a one-fifth-scale, autonomous rally car at the equivalent of 90 mph. The research will help self-driving cars maintain control in poor driving conditions. Future Tech · Driverless TransportationTesla Model S Autonomously Crashes on Highway
A Tesla Model S on Autopilot driving in Switzerland fails to recognize a stopped van and accelerates into the rear of the van. According to the driver, none of the Autopilot safety features worked properly. Future Tech · Driverless Transportation
