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.
In the early days of air transport, pilots relied on a nationwide network of beacons for night time navigation. A hundred years later, the first generation of autonomous vehicles may also rely on light beams to navigate safely.
AURORA, ON--Magna International Inc., a leading Tier One supplier, will develop and manufacture self-driving cars for Lyft, a leading ride-hailing company. The strategic partnership, an industry first, will enable Magna to mass-produce autonomous vehicles.
The automotive industry is undergoing the biggest transformation in its 130-year history. Automakers and suppliers around the world are scrambling to develop autonomous vehicles. And, they’re under increasing pressure from outsiders ranging from Silicon Valley tech giants to startup entrepreneurs.
