PLYMOUTH, England—This year marks the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower, the ship that transported more than 100 brave souls across the Atlantic Ocean to Cape Cod, MA. To celebrate the historic event, an autonomous research vessel will retrace the voyage in the spring.
The Emerald Isle will soon become a hotbed for developing and testing new types of self-driving vehicles. The Future Mobility Campus Ireland in County Clare will enable start-ups and small manufacturers to test new technology in a real-world environment.
Yellowstone is America’s oldest national park. But, it will soon be the site of some of the newest transportation technology in the world. Starting in May 2021, the popular vacation spot will experiment with autonomous shuttles.
Autonomous off-highway vehicles are a growing presence around the globe, from Norwegian mines to Brazilian sugar cane fields, and while limited access sites foster more controllable environments, rough and tumble usage raises a host of other challenges.
While the trend of autonomous driving is also catching on in off-highway vehicles, the use cases are very different compared to on-road vehicles where the main purpose is to move from Point A to Point B on their own with help of onboard sensors and systems.
Better sensing technology, both on and off vehicle, is a must for safer, smoother, and more convenient systems for advanced driver assistance and greater levels of automation. Here is our curated roundup of the latest and greatest news from the CES 2020 show in Las Vegas.
