Based on what appears to be semi-educated hunch, IHIS claims that the United States will lead the world in deployment and early adoption of production autonomous vehicles as early as 2019 – effortlessly omitting Chinese owned Volvo – while Europe and China are expected to begin adding considerable volume from ~2021 onward.

It’s time for Ford to reorganize yet again. This time around it’s as radical a turnaround plan as ever seen in Dearborn with Ford essentially ceding the car market to other major auto makers and reallocating the $7 billion saved to bets – with wildly uncertain odds – in the connected car and autonomous car areas, as well as the newly emerging interactive road system.

September U.S. auto sales dropped notably when compared to September 2016, but were still relatively strong, according to AutoData. It said that the seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) in September was 17.76 million units compared to 18.05 million units a … Continue reading
LIDAR uses light to create high-resolution images that provide a more accurate view of the world than cameras or radar alone. As self-driving technology continues to evolve, LIDAR’s accuracy will play a critical role in its deployment. Long gone is the original fantasy that State and Federal road markings would be adequate. – they don’t even work for human directed vehicles. Continue reading

In an inadvertent parody of Claude Rains’ assertion that he is shocked that gambling is going on, it’s alleged by Consumer Watchdog that the credibility of the autonomous vehicle policy issued last year by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration -aka NHTSA – is undermined because former NHTSA chief Mark Rosekind has taken a job with autonomous vehicle developer Zoox.

Michigan Makes Rules for The Research, Testing, Use, and Ultimately Public Sale of Autonomous Vehicles
The law establishes the Michigan Council on Future Mobility, as part of the Michigan Department of Transportation, that will recommend policies to set industry standards. It also will regulate connected vehicle networks and how traffic data, such as vehicle crashes, will be collected and shared.
Lobbyists from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Ford Motor, General Motors, Toyota Motor, and Google, as well as ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft had a large say in the regulations.
Planet M was launched in June 2016 as a collaborative branding effort to promote Michigan as the “epicenter of mobility.” The messaging pushes Michigan’s leadership in talent development, auto R&D and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) testing. Continue reading
