In politics, the principle of subsidiarity is an organizing principle that recommends handling matters at the most immediate or local level consistent with their resolution, rather than rely on a centralized authority. How do these apply to decision-making in autonomous vehicles (AVs)? I would argue that edge computing – essentially, decentralized decision-making — will increase […]

How artificial intelligence and analytics will evolve autonomous driving and next-generation cars

Building autonomous cars takes more data than automotive research engineers ever imagined possible. To put some numbers around the autonomous driving issue, some current estimates predict that it will take around 23 to 25 million kilometers of driving to collect data and train the neural networks that will make autonomous cars feasible. Evolving autonomous driving […]

¿Hay que echar el freno al coche autónomo?

Además de las nuevas formas de compartir trayecto, el coche autónomo está siendo la pieza clave de muchas estrategias actuales de ciudad inteligente. El proyecto de vehículo sin conductor de Google destaca en la larga lista mundial de futuristas ingenios urbanos. Pero está surgiendo también un gran debate en torno al reparto de responsabilidades, en […]

Les villes doivent-elles mettre un frein aux véhicules autonomes?

Tout comme l’autopartage, l’engouement pour les véhicules autonomes a été un élément clé de nombreuses stratégies pour les villes intelligentes (smart cities). La Google Car pourrait bien changer la donne du futurisme urbain à travers la planète. Mais se pose alors la question de la responsabilité en cas d’accident avec un véhicule autonome. Qui du […]

Should cities put the brakes on self-driving cars?

Along with ride-share, the autonomous vehicle movement has been a key element of many smart city strategies. Google’s self-driving car shows up on the game-changer list of many an urban futurist around the world. But there has been much debate about which party bares the liability in an autonomous vehicle accident. Is it the “driver” or […]
