Mapless Autonomous Driving

Mapless autonomous driving is essentially what it sounds like-self-driving without reliance on HD maps. It works by creating "mini-maps" on the fly as a result of deep learning.

Autonomous Vehicles Could Improve Urban Mobility and Mitigate Pollution

New automotive technologies, followed by the growing trend of autonomous vehicles on our roads could improve urban mobility in the future and mitigate the negative environmental impact of conventional transportation.

Swift Navigation Case Study: Left Hand Robotics

The challenges around outdoor snow removal are two-fold. First, businesses and commercial sites must keep walkways and pathways clear for safety reasons and they face a labor shortage of those willing and able to do such incremental work.

Why Software will win the Race for Autonomy

Freedom to operate is vital and it takes on new meaning in the sphere of vehicle autonomy. To drive mass adoption of autonomy, you need to build vehicle software that enables any vehicle to operate in any environment, with zero dependence on external systems.

Velodyne Lidar Discusses the Future of Self-Driving Cars with Next-Generation Engineers

Student Engineers Participating in 3-Year AutoDrive Challenge Are Working to Invent Autonomous Vehicle Future.

Top Article for 2018 - Here Are All the Companies Testing Autonomous Cars In 2018

We're currently on the precipice of the driverless vehicle revolution, with most of these companies rolling out fully autonomous cars sometime between the end of the year and 2021. It won't be much longer now until getting behind the wheel doesn't require turning it yourself

4 Common Questions About Autonomous Mobile Robots

Autonomous mobile robots are a simple, efficient and cost-effective way to automate material handling and in-house transportation tasks in nearly any situation where employees would previously have been required to push carts around the facility.

Swift Navigation Case Study:
Yeti Snow Technology

Yeti has the goal to develop an autonomous snow clearing service for use on future airports. The product will be introduced in steps, in parallel with the development of technology for self-driving vehicles.

Autonomous Cars - Safety and Traffic Regulations

Software developers must anticipate that laws and regulations will inevitably change over time, and they should consider developing processes to update and adapt to new or revised legal requirements.

Transportation Shift: Autonomous Transportation Has Too Much Going For It

When people start thinking of a car as something you subscribe to and/or share, we can dramatically reduce the number of vehicles on the road and cities around the globe can recycle the land and convert it into something really useful, like affordable housing.

Autonomous Vehicles: The Impacts Are Huge, But How Quickly Will They Be Adopted?

I believe well see at least 10 percent of all miles driven in Level 4 vehicles (fully autonomous in most situations) by 2030, with the initial deployment in large metro areas.

When Cars Think for Us: Autonomous Vehicles and the Role of Energy Storage

In this article, I discuss the primary reasons why autonomous vehicles are emerging, what factors go into developing self-driving cars, and how energy storage is a vital part of autonomous vehicle design.

Flashy Cars: AVs Will Be Here Later Than Promised, Better Than You Thought

For a lot of people, the idea of trusting your life to a computer hurtling you down the road sounds foolhardy. The whole idea behind the autonomous vehicle is to eliminate human error and deliver zero street/road fatalities - awesome, but impossible.

Swift Navigation Case Study: Northstar Robotics

By coupling its cloud and open autonomy platforms to disrupt agriculture, Northstar Robotics is on track to solve farm labor shortages and reduce farm input costs.

What's Trending in the Automotive World and How Energy Storage Fits In

Incorporating ultracapacitors with batteries will greatly enable connectivity and autonomous driving features, helping automakers achieve the next level of innovation.
