Self-driving pioneer foresees industry future with autonomous vehicles

The fact is that auto companies have to change. Those that are making the greatest progress are technology companies such as Baidu, Google, Nvidia and Intel.

Was first published. Highlights and further reading.

Sebastian Thrun is considered to be one of the advanced thinkers of Silicon Valley. He invented Google Street View for Alphabet, Google’s parent, and wrote the first code for an autonomous car. The Alphabet startup Waymo, which is developing technology for automated driving, came out of that research.

Jumping ahead.

A:Germany was originally in the forefront thanks to Mercedes. The brand has been involved with autonomous driving for a long time. I currently consider the Google-Waymo team to be the best. But its lead is shrinking. Audi, BMW, VW and Mercedes are making progress.

Autonomous vehicles will change everything. Allegedly. That’s the rosy forecast from Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE), a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization charged with reducing America’s dependency on oil and the growth of alternative fuel mobility. Its new report America’s Workforce and the Self-Driving Future: Realizing Productivity Gains and Spurring Economic Growth, predicts that the industry could unleash new technological and economic development on a level not seen since the dawn of the space age. Said U.S. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich:

Data analytics: A prerequisite to Artificial Intelligence mobility

Automobiles today are not only machines on wheels, but an inseparable communion of software and hardware. Features like cruise-control, driver-assist, anti-collision-systems, geolocation, connectivity integrations among others, have crept into the mass market; enhancing vehicle safety, comfort and convenience. However, the industry’s goal is to make vehicles an extension of humans rather than an accessory for humans. And this is where Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) come into play.
We are seeing an era where new tech-players are becoming important partners for traditional automotive companies
