Sebastian Thrun: Google's driverless car

http://www.ted.com Sebastian Thrun helped build Google's amazing driverless car, powered by a very personal quest to save lives and reduce traffic accidents. Jawdropping video shows the DARPA Challenge-winning car motoring through busy city traffic with no one behind the wheel, and dramatic test drive footage from TED2011 demonstrates how fast the thing can really go.

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

Google Robocar Racetrack Ride
I got to race around in one of the Google robocars, and it was thrilling. Photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jurvetson/5499949739/ It felt like a racetrack demo lap, where the instructors show off what they can do, with wheels squealing at the edge of performance... a newfound performance, in this case, eked out of an intelligence-enhanced Prius with no human driver. Imagine being driven entirely by the car for your work commute... in traffic, through tollbooths, and across bridges to the front door. Some Google engineers are already doing this every day. No need to look for a parking space; just let the car find one for you as you enter the building. Two computers tucked into the trunk are doing all the steering, braking and acceleration by issuing commands to the drive-by-wire bus already designed into modern hybrid and electric cars. The spinning LIDAR on the room maps the environment in 3D, including pedestrians and, in this case, traffic cones. A camera to the side of the rear view mirror tracks the road. Three radar in the front bumper and one in back also detect proximal objects. GPS, inertial sensors and wheel-speed monitors give feedback to the computer on the car's performance. There are times when I want to drive, and times when being a driving machine feels more like the drudgery that is better left to the machines. Or when you are tired, or want a designated driver for an evening out. Commute time is a staggering collective time waster, and Ford estimates it will escalate to global gridlock in the near future. Google's Thrun estimates that autonomous vehicles could pack more closely together and achieve 2-3x throughput improvements from existing roadways, with fuel and pollution savings from the efficiency gains. And in urban environments, the largest amount of drive time is spent looking for a parking space.

As the inventor of the automobile, Mercedes-Benz natural assumes a pioneering role where autonomous driving is concerned. The declared aim is to develop the automobile further, from a self-moving ("automobile") vehicle to an independent ("autonomous") vehicle. In its research and development activities, Mercedes-Benz goes well beyond purely technical realisation of automated driving and anticipates various scenarios Semi-autonomous driving is already a fact on public roads today – for example with the Mercedes-Benz models in the S-, E-, C- and CLS-Class. One such feature is Stop-and-Go Assist, which automatically follows tailback traffic and provides steering assistance. When parking with the aid of Active Park Assist, the technology chooses a suitable parking space and takes over the steering. The driver only needs to accelerate and brake. Mercedes-Benz is continuing its "Intelligent Drive" strategy with numerous assistance systems and substantially expanded functions with the aim of systematically enhancing comfort and safety. CARJAM TV. An autonomous car, also known as a driverless car, self-driving car or robot car, is an autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the human transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Autonomous vehicles sense their surroundings with such techniques as radar, lidar, GPS, and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage.[6] Some autonomous vehicles update their maps based on sensory input, allowing the vehicles to keep track of their position even when conditions change or when they enter uncharted environments. Some quasi-autonomous demonstration systems date back to the 1920s and the 1930s.[7] Since the 1980s, when Mercedes-Benz and Bundeswehr University Munich built a driverless car through the EUREKA Prometheus Project,[8] significant advances have been made in both technology and legislation relevant to autonomous cars. Numerous major companies and research organizations have developed working prototype autonomous vehicles, including Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, Continental Automotive Systems, Autoliv Inc., Bosch, Nissan, Toyota, Audi, Vislab from University of Parma, Oxford University and Google. In 2010, four electric autonomous vans successfully drove 8000 miles from Italy to China. The vehicles were developed in a research project backed by European Union funding, by Vislab of the University of Parma, Italy. As of 2013, four U.S. states have passed laws permitting autonomous cars. Many major automotive manufacturers, including General Motors, Ford, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Nissan, Toyota, BMW, and Volvo, are testing driverless car systems as of 2013. BMW has been testing driverless systems since around 2005,[67][68] while in 2010, Audi sent a driverless Audi TTS to the top of Pike's Peak at close to race speeds.[10] In 2011, GM created the EN-V (short for Electric Networked Vehicle), an autonomous electric urban vehicle.[69] In 2012, Volkswagen began testing a "Temporary Auto Pilot" (TAP) system that will allow a car to drive itself at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour (130 km/h) on the highway.[70] Ford has conducted extensive research into driverless systems and vehicular communication systems.[71] In January 2013, Toyota demonstrated a partially self-driving car with numerous sensors and communication systems. The Google driverless car project maintains a test fleet of autonomous vehicles that has driven 300,000 miles (480,000 km) with no machine-caused accidents as of August 2012. In film and television KITT, the autonomous Pontiac Trans Am in the 1982 TV series Knight Rider, was sentient and autonomous. The 1983 film Christine features a sentient, autonomous car as the title character. Batmobile is shown to be able to drive itself to Batman's current location. The Mercedes-Benz W222 is the current version of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the successor of the Mercedes-Benz W221. The W222, designed during 2009 by Robert Lešnik, has a similar design theme to the CLA-Class and facelifted E-Class (W212). In Europe, sales of the Mercedes S 400 Hybrid, Mercedes S 350 BlueTEC, Mercedes S 350 BlueTEC Hybrid, and Mercedes S 500 began in September 2013. US sales of the Mercedes S 550 also began in September; the Mercedes 4Matic all-wheel drive model went on sale in November, 2013. Additional models, including Mercedes V12 models and those from Mercedes AMG are expected in 2014. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Driverless_car

The 1990 film Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, features taxis called Johnny Cabs controlled by artificial intelligence in the car or the android drivers. The 1993 film Demolition Man, starring Sylvester Stallone, set in 2032, features vehicles that can be self-driven or commanded to "Auto Mode" where a voice controlled computer operates the vehicle. The 1994 film Timecop, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, set in 2004 and 1994, has cars that can either be self-driven or commanded to drive to specific locations such as "home". Another Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, The 6th Day from 2000, features an autonomous car commanded by Michael Rapaport. The 2002 film Minority Report, set in Washington, D.C. in 2054, features an extended chase sequence involving autonomous cars. The vehicle of protagonist John Anderton is transporting him when its systems are overridden by police in an attempt to bring him into custody. The 2004 film I, Robot features autonomous vehicles driving on highways, allowing the car to travel safer at higher speeds than if manually controlled. The option to manually operate the vehicles is available. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Driverless_car





GM's driverless car
Vehicles that operate without a driver and allow passengers to safely use their mobile devices are being tested by the U.S. Department of Defense. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has created Boss, a Chevrolet Tahoe designed to drive itself. Boss is a robotic vehicle equipped with 25 lasers, cameras and radars to enable it to sense objects and know which direction to go in. The self-driving vehicle is scheduled to be tested in November during The Urban Challenge, a 100km course in which various robots race across a city or suburban environment. In addition to helping the military, General Motors officials expect this new technology to also play a future role in dangerous tasks such as mine-seeking.
