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.
Recent industry developments are looking to save lives, reduce injuries, and spread mobility equitably, but education—of developers and consumers—is one important element to AV technology development and adoption.
This year kicked off where 2018 finished when a huge number of developments were announced in autonomous and connected vehicles. The biggest platform for these reveals, demonstrations, and announcements was the CES 2019 Show in Las Vegas, which saw an unprecedented amount of automotive applications being showcased and a glimpse given to a world that is fast becoming a reality.
The twin technologies of big data and machine technology will have to work together in order to propel autonomous vehicle development forward, and industry players from automakers to chipmakers are gearing up for a long and winding road.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have become vital tools for the production of next-generation automated vehicles, particularly because of the need to recognize and react to the nearly infinite number of scenarios encountered on real-world roads.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Cruise LLC, the autonomous-vehicle unit of General Motors Co., has introduced a self-driving, all-electric, ride-sharing shuttle it built in partnership with GM and Honda Motor. The Cruise Origin will be built at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck plant
The 1920s was a golden age for the automobile in America. Millions of people jumped behind the wheel for the first time and transformed mobility, not to mention just about every facet of life. History may repeat itself during the 2020s. But, this time around, cars will be driving themselves.
Many technologies that we take for granted today were originally "invented" in science fiction. These include mobile phones, smart watches, tablet computers, holograms, electric submarines, antidepressants, radio, television, nuclear weapons, lasers, video conferencing, credit cards, wireless headphones, self-driving cars, unmanned aerial vehicles, escalators, radar, automatic doors, Tasers, virtual reality, space travel, individually targeted advertising, and even insect-derived foods.
A decade or so from now, you may find yourself traveling along an interstate in a caravan. Your automobile is separated by just a few inches from the vehicle in front of you and the one behind as you speed along at 150 miles per hour.
