Researchers find a more effective way to test self-driving cars

It's tricky to test self-driving cars. Even if you have hundreds of thousands of miles under your belt, it's still difficult to account for every possible real-world peril. Researchers think they can fast-track that experience, however. They've devel...

Mercedes Benz is building cars that know the road better than you

As we approach a blind corner on a twisty mountain road above Sunnyvale, there's a moment when I'm sitting in the passenger seat of a pre-production Mercedes Benz S-Class and I'm not not sure that the updated Intelligent Drive will really slow the ca...

MIT’s camera drones are smart enough to get the perfect shot

Former Google worker barred from Uber’s self-driving division by court

A judge has ruled that Uber can keep working on its autonomous vehicles with one key condition: autonomous vehicle lead Anthony Levandowski must be removed from any of Uber's self-driving efforts. Prior to joining Uber, Levandowski worked for Google'...

Lyft and Waymo work together on self-driving cars

Waymo just got a ton of help in its bid to make self-driving cars a common sight on public roads. The Alphabet-owned company and Lyft have forged a deal that will see the two work together on self-driving cars, both for development and for test proj...

Germany legalizes self-driving car tests

German automakers won't have to bring their experimental autonomous cars to California for testing anymore. The country has just approved a law allowing companies to test their self-driving cars on its roads, so long as they follow a set of condition...

Self-driving cars could soon be cheaper and easier to build

There's no shortage of companies working on artificial intelligence for cars. If anything there's a glut. Every automaker and startup seems to be building a nearly sentient system designed to operate cars and avoid objects (especially humans). AImoti...

Toyota taps NVIDIA Drive PX to power its autonomous vehicles

The work we've seen Google and Uber put into self-driving cars is impressive, but short of Tesla's autopilot mode, consumer applications of autonomous driving are few and far between. Soon, that could change. Speaking at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Confe...
