Wait till these trucks operate without them totally anonymously … then you will see some real fireworks. Angry unemployed ex-truck drivers will spray them so that there sensors won’t work anymore.

Same with self-driving cabs. Accidents will pile up faster than you can say Jack Robinson. Like said it’s the Globalists who are pushing for this;

Mercedes CEO must have been reading my post.

Uber Drivers Join “Fight For $15″ Protests As Autonomous Vehicle Technology Looms

Autonomous vehicle technology is BS, will never work in this way with a few sensors and some software. Just rub your little two grey cells together for a second and think for crying out loud! Do you people really believe in all the BS tech they come up with?

A lot of companies who were initially involved in this are already pulling back. Why do you think that is?

Self-Driving Truck Cruises the Highway in Ohio https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m82DQ-t-Ajg
Dec 1, 2016 Associated Press

A self-driving test truck has begun traveling in real-world highway traffic in central Ohio as part of an effort to advance autonomous vehicle technology.


If you really think a couple of sensors and some wacky software can replace human perception, good luck with that.

On highways they are already on the road, now autonomous cars are coming into the city center.

BMW will test them in Munich from 2017 onwards.

Companies are developing new sensing algorithms in a bid to understand the dynamics of driving data to find out who - or what - is at fault when autonomous vehicles have an accident. Matthew Stock investigates.

Google Scaled Back Self-Driving Car Ambitions

I wonder why?


Researchers develop state-of-the-art processor chip for self-driving cars https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGQQfUTFOaQ

Dec 13, 2016 ARIRANG NEWS

Car manufacturers today can no longer maintain competitive edge if their development doesn't go hand in hand with advanced technology or information technology. We're talking about autonomous vehicles as they are set to shape the future of driving as well as the future of their manufacturing strategy.

Driverless cars and the very latest technology on that --- on IT & Science Front this week reporting by Kim Jiyeon.

Local researchers at the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute say they've succeeded in developing an advanced type of processor chip called "Aldebaran", a crucial element to the development of autonomous vehicles.

The chip will be in charge of controlling various technologies and data collected in the vehicle's sensors, which function as the eyes and ears of the autonomous vehicle... and are included in eight radars and cameras that monitor the vehicle from all angles, twelve ultrasonic wave sensors, a cloud system that enables data collection and data-sharing with other autonomous vehicles and process 3D digital maps containing geographic info.

"The chip functions like the brain of the vehicle, and enables it to detect surrounding vehicles and people. It can also run internal systems checks and alert the driver if there's anything wrong."

The Aldebaran incorporates quad-core technology, which means four processors that have different mandates work together to figure out what to do in a challenging situation, resembling how a human brain functions.

Moreover, even when all of its four processors operate at the same time, the Aldebaran consumes less than one Watt of electricity,... whereas existing processors consume a couple hundred Watts of electricity.

"Its energy efficiency is one-hundred times more elevated than other processors,... and this is important in determining the weight and volume of autonomous vehicles. To improve our model, we want to further work on downsizing the processors into a single chip."

Meanwhile, the country's leading automobile maker Hyundai Motor and its sister company Kia Motors have focused on developing technologies so that vehicles can assist drivers on highways.

Some of these technologies include the Advanced Smart Cruise Control function, which keeps distance with the preceding vehicles,... and the Lane Keeping Assist System,... which as the name implies, keeps vehicles running safely within a road lane even without the driver's maneuver on the steering wheel.

The automakers say they are also developing their own connected car operating system, or a 'ccOS' that will be used exclusively for their autonomous cars, equipped with state-of-the-art driver interface system as well as a navigation and multi-media function.

DMV Wins: Uber Removes Self-Driving Cars From San Francisco Roads After Registrations Revoked
22 December 2016
, by Tyler Durden (Zero Hedge)
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-22/dmv-wins-uber-removes-self-driving-cars-san-francisco-roads-after-registrations-revo

As a result, Uber finally removed its self-driving cars from San Francisco streets, halting the autonomous program one week after its launch, despite again claiming that it was not obligated to have a permit because its vehicles require continuous monitoring by a person in the car. San Francisco was supposed to be Uber’s second testing ground for its self-driving cars. The company unveiled its self-driving cars in September in Pittsburgh.

Uber, however, does not want to do this for one simple reason: the permit process, largely seen as a public safety measure, requires companies to provide the DMV with accident reports. Should the public be made aware of any major traffic incidents, it would lead to a PR disaster for the company which has bet heavily on self-driving cars as its next growth platform. Uber has also complained that its home state has favored complex rules over technological innovation, translation: “the rules should not apply to us.”


New development centre for autonomous driving

The BMW iNEXT is scheduled for release in 2021 – self-driving, electric and fully connected.

To achieve this aim, the BMW Group is combining its development expertise in vehicle connectivity and automated driving at a new campus in Unterschleissheim near Munich.
