Global Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) Technology Market to witness a CAGR of 63.8% during 2018-2025
NEW YORK, Nov. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) Technology market is expected to witness a CAGR of 63.8%, and is projected to reach USD 3,319.9 million by 2025.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The robotic car company created by Google is poised to attempt a major technological leap in California, where its vehicles will hit the roads without a human on hand to take control in emergencies.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Kroger Co. is about to test whether it can steer supermarket customers away from crowded grocery aisles with a fleet of diminutive driverless cars designed to lower delivery costs.
If a bicyclist crosses a road with no traffic signals that’s filled with driverless cars, what will happen?
Rhonda Kae Young, a professor of civil engineering at Gonzaga University, says not much.
Research and development is the engine that drives innovation and long-term corporate profitability. Businesses spend billions every year to develop new products and technologies, even though most of these audacious projects will never bring a product or service to market and recoup their high costs.
With no steering wheel, no pedals, one double-door entrance and little to distinguish its front end from its rear, the driverless vehicle tooling around UW-Madison on Tuesday morning was less a traditional car or truck than a computer-controlled pod on wheels.
Driverless cars aren't just theory to automotive engineers anymore. They're busy figuring out how soon next-generation vehicles will arrive on streets near you.
The Society of Automotive Engineers, meeting in Detroit this week, is leaning hard into autonomous technology, going so far as to define the levels of autonomy that the industry uses to integrate increasing amounts of sensors and artificial intelligence into vehicles.
OCALA, Fla. (AP) — In 2012, Steve Mahan, who is blind, climbed into the driver's seat of a self-driving car and rolled up to the drive-thru of a Taco Bell in a video that's been viewed more than 8 million times online...
YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) — Michigan's 500-acre (202-hectare) center for autonomous vehicle research is officially open and will partner with technology giant Microsoft.
Gov. Rick Snyder trekked to the Ypsilanti-based American Center for Mobility for Wednesday's grand opening.

I don't envy the decisions policymakers must make. There is probably only a 50-50 chance that they can get this right as they stare at a crystal ball and predict the future 20 years from now. But a discussion about infrastructure financing and driverless cars is urgently needed to improve the chances of getting this right.
Driverless cars offer a future with fewer deaths on the roadways. Today, roughly nine out of 10 car crashes are caused by human error; autonomous vehicles, with their sensors, radars and undistractable computer-driven system, should be much safer.
General Motors Co. will invest more than $100 million in two Michigan plants where it plans to build its Cruise AV driverless car and the high-tech roof modules required to guide the car without a driver.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — One problem with self-driving cars is people.
The Los Angeles Times reports that of six crash reports filed in California so far this year, two involved a person attacking a robot car.
It's 2027 (or 2037) and the age of the self-driving car. City-dwellers have traded in their car keys for ride hails. Street parking has been replaced by wider sidewalks and bike lanes, while developers are busy converting garages into much-needed housing.
JERUSALEM (AP) — As the world moves toward an era of self-driving cars, Israel is positioning itself to be the Detroit of the future...
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cars with no steering wheel, no pedals and nobody at all inside could be driving themselves on California roads by the end of the year, under proposed state rules that would give a powerful boost to the fast-developing technology.
BOSTON (AP) — Imagine you're behind the wheel when your brakes fail. As you speed toward a crowded crosswalk, you're confronted with an impossible choice: veer right and mow down a large group of elderly people or veer left into a woman pushing a stroller...
