“The vehicle is saying ‘I’m Alice, this is my location, this is my speed and my direction.’ Everyone around you can listen to that,” says Jonathan Petit
So it appears safety and security/privacy are tightly linked and possibly at odds with each other. I remember this issue being raised 15 years ago in the VII world, it was never solved.
Both have proven to be disruptors of their respective markets while simultaneously defying the laws of political and automotive industry gravity, respectively
Tesla buyers generally read the biography of Elon Musk before laying down the cash and are forever followers. There is a lot more to the automotive brand than the chrome logo these days, buyers must believe in the leader that they invest so much money into.
Recently, Joe Speed of the IBM Connected Car Project reached out to get some help bootstrapping the latest 3-D printed concept car from Local Motors with connected features using Octoblu, Node-Red and IBM IoT for Automotive
Joe tried real hard to engage Intel automotive on this project, but despite their close proximity in Chandler, AZ they were not interested in this IoT. IBM certainly is though. Go Joe, full “Speed” ahead!
“Everyone sees it as an opportunity to expand their business model,” said Bobby Hambrick, CEO of AutonomouStuff
Hambrick evolves to Harbrick as it becomes more aware of the sensor fusion space needed for autonomous. Recently Renesas developed a full vehicle model released last week for development of those models. It does not take quite the central computing or the graphics analytics platform developed for Google by Roush as you might think.
Ghosn said that by 2020 Nissan plans to equip innovative autonomous drive technology on multiple vehicles. Progress is well on track to achieve this goal.
Please watch the video! Very interesting (no doubt expensive) concept AD/EV car shows how serious Nissan intents to activate on its promise. I really like how Nissan (and Toyota) refer to the car as a partner or helper, not just a slave to drive you around. Japan OEMs could lead the world here, and by 2020 will show off in Tokyo at the Olympics.
Nissan and Toyota Motor Corp., and the government are increasing efforts to put self-driving vehicles into practical use, possibly before the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics in 2020
Apparently, unlike the US, autonomous driving is entirely permitted in Japan as long as manual controls are available. Trust and responsibility is highly regarding in Japan. Interesting to see logistics companies welcome autonomous due to shortage of driver labor.
This is for a Google-certified car operating system that would run directly on the car’s hardware—something that Toyota, GM, and other car manufacturers would ship from the factory
A lot of reading between the lines here, but maybe true. The hype sometimes becomes reality in the market driven economy Google succeeds with.
Covisint is showcasing the “Future of the Connected Owner” with the actual DeLorean DMC-12 from “Back to the Future II”. They show us around this iconic vehicle and discuss how auto makers are taking advantage of their technology to enable connected ownership and cloud-based capabilities in cars.

Marty McFly: I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it.
People are proving that with $50,000 sensors and $50,000 in electronics, you can do it. But doing it in a mass production vehicle is more of an issue.
$100K in upgrades may be the difference between level 3 and level 4 autonomous. I’d be happy with level 3 for quite a while.
Over the next 5 years, DOT plans to provide up to $100 million through its Connected Vehicle pilot program for projects that will deploy V2I technologies in real-world settings
$100M may be a drop in a bucket the way these field test projects go and if the deployment challenges don’t get solved, there are competing approaches that might go to market quicker.
