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.

Sanjay Dastoor: A skateboard, with a boost
Imagine an electric vehicle that can get you to work -- or anywhere in a six-mile radius -- quickly, without traffic frustrations or gasoline. Now imagine you can pick it up and carry it with you. Yes, this souped-up skateboard could change the face of morning commutes.

Volvo's self-driving cars take to public roads for first time
For the first time ever a road train comprising a Volvo XC60, a Volvo V60 and a Volvo S60 plus one truck automatically driving in convoy behind a lead vehicle has operated on a public motorway among other road users. The historic test in Spain was highly successful.





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's Ass-kicking Self-Driving Car
At the TED Conference I had the chance to ride in one of Google's self driving cars. It requires no hands on the wheel at all. I expected a very chill 5-10 miles per hour. What happened was much different...





2014 Mercedes S-Class AUTONOMOUS DRIVING DEMO 'Intelligent Drive'
Mercedes-Benz has successfully completed the first autonomous long-distance drive ever, involving both town and cross-country traffic, using near-production-standard sensor systems. The Mercedes-Benz S 500 INTELLIGENT DRIVE research vehicle covered 100 kilometers from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany, under real traffic conditions and complex situations including traffic lights, roundabouts, pedestrians, cyclists and trams. Mercedes-Benz will reveal the full details of the first autonomous long distance drive at the Mercedes-Benz & smart Media Night. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://goo.gl/HpsSa9





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.

A car navigating Mercedes'test track may sound like nothing unusual, but who's driving it? No one, because this is Mercedes'fully automated driving system in action.Daimler is treading new ground by using it to test driver aids and other safety features. It means that dangerous scenarios can be simulated with centimeter accuracy and without a human test driver having to risk life and limb.
