(PRWEB) December 12, 2019 LiDAR, short for light detection and ranging, is often considered the primary sensor for self-driving cars, given its ability to create high definition maps of the surrounding environment. LiDAR provides a three-dimensional point cloud of a car’s surroundings by measuring how long light takes to travel to an object and bounce back. Currently, most LiDAR systems rely on mechanical scanning, which suffers from poor reliability and high cost. In contrast, … [Read more...] about Draper Unveils LiDAR with MEMS Beamsteering Technology for Autonomous Vehicles

A Maryland attorney is suing Tesla for over $1 million, saying the car he bought from the electric vehicle company in 2017 went haywire and began swerving at nonexistent objects. Attorney Scott Breza sued Tesla on Dec. 4, saying the company did not fix numerous sensor issues with his $105,600 Model X 75D. He said the vehicle’s autopilot feature often caused the car to veer off the road. The lawsuit brought up other instances of Tesla’s vehicles’ malfunctioning as well.“I have had multiple occurrences with the enhanced autopilot malfunctioning whereby the vehicle suddenly veered off the road,” Breza wrote in a 2018 letter to Tesla that was included in the lawsuit. “I have had issues with the proximity sensors repeatedly warning me of a potential collision when there is nothing in proximity to the vehicle.” (RELATED: Report Shows Tesla In Autopilot Mode Accelerated Seconds Before Deadly Wreck) Tesla has not responded to the Daily Caller News … [Read more...] about Maryland Attorney Sues Tesla As The Electric Vehicle Maker’s Technology Comes Under Fire
'If technology becomes affordable and we have the infrastructure, it will be a different story. But India is a big country, and it is not easy to reach from one point to the other. Outside the big cities we have to use diesel and petrol cars.' IMAGE: At the Auto Expo last week in Greater Noida, Maruti unveiled their electric car prototype the Maruti Future S Concept. Photograph: Rajesh Karkera/Rediff.com. Maruti Suzuki, which sells every second car in India, believes electric vehicles alone cannot solve the challenges of energy and emission. Its strategy will be to offer a mix of electric and hybrid vehicles. Even after 10 years, switching all cars to electric will be difficult. "If technology becomes affordable and we have the infrastructure, it will be a different story. But India is a big country, and it is not easy to reach from one point to the other.

Aurora, the autonomous vehicle technology startup backed by Sequoia Capital and Amazon, has struck a deal with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to develop self-driving commercial vehicles. The partnership will focus on integrating Aurora’s technology into FCA’s line of Ram Truck commercial vehicles, a portfolio that includes cargo vans and trucks. The deal could extend to FCA’s Fiat Professional brand as well, TechCrunch has learned. The deal with Aurora aims to specifically develop and deploy self-driving commercial vehicles that could be used by any third party with a delivery-to-consumer need. For instance, once Aurora’s technology is integrated into its commercial vans, FCA could sell them to a third-party logistics company — like say, Amazon — that intends to use autonomous vehicles for deliveries. Neither company disclosed financial terms of the deal. The high cost of developing and bringing technology such as electrification and autonomous … [Read more...] about Fiat Chrysler partners with Aurora to develop self-driving commercial vans
