Ford's Self-Driving Test Car Severely Damaged In Crash
by Tyler Durden
Sat, 01/13/2018 - 20:30

It’s never good news when an autonomous automobile is involved in an accident. Lately, Alphabet’s Waymo crashed an autonomous bus in Las Vegas, and Uber managed to flip a self-driving Volvo in Arizona.

In the latest installment of autonomous car accidents across America, a self-driving test car from the Ford-backed startup Argo-AI was severely damaged Wednesday that sent two people to the hospital.

I'm not a driver. Never owned an automobile. I don't like the idea of driverless taxi's or buses. Automated commuter trains are another thing entirely, IMO.

I'm a cyclist. I get in everybody's way, and piss people off at intersections.

I posted some info earlier in the thread about what they are planning for cyclists; they are going to make SMART bikes that feed all your data back to a central source

Oh, but check this out if it hasn't already been posted.

The 1959 Cadillac Cyclone XP-74 concept car;



On the potential capabilities;

http://mashable.com/2015/10/26/1959-.../#y9iQY0bsQGqt

Quote:
Automakers like Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Volvo and — of course — Tesla have made headlines in recent years with their radar-based collision warning systems.

As it turns out, though, Cadillac had the idea to keep drivers safe on the highway with the help of radar way back in 1959 with its Cyclone concept.

SEE ALSO: Cadillac CEO: 'Autonomous driving and driving passion must co-exist'

The radar-locating device was embedded in the front nosecones of the concept. The tech scanned the highway ahead and alerted drivers electronically of any upcoming obstacles in the car's path; as you can imagine, this was pretty advanced stuff for the late '50s.

However, unlike systems in today's passenger cars like the 2016 Honda Civic, the Cyclone's radar system wasn't tied into the brake system. That means that it couldn't do more than alert the driver of an impending collision; avoiding the obstacle was up to the driver.

As you can see from the images, the radar safety system wasn't the only futuristic part of the Cyclone. It also included a plexiglass bubble-topped cabin that connected with a panoramic windshield — kind of like Tesla's Model X — as well as doors that slid backwards on a ball bearing-smoothed track not unlike minivans of today. The cockpit was so sealed that Cadillac even included an intercom system for the two passengers to easily communicate with people outside the car.

It's good that the cabin was completely inclosed, too. The 325-horsepower engine was mounted up in the nose of the car, along with the mufflers and the exhaust, was expelled ahead of the front wheels. Without that jet fighter-like cockpit, the Cyclone would have been mighty stinky to drive.

Ignoring that bit of the brain cell-killing design, the Cyclone was 60 years ahead of its time. It's too bad Cadillac didn't run with the radar idea; early and widespread implementation of the technology may well have saved some lives.
Unfortunately I can't find the reference to another detail, which was magnetic strips that ran from front to back, and were to be in place for the possible inclusion of these strips on major freeways. The idea being that folks who could afford it would have both radar and driverless "safety" features for their cars as far back as 60 years ago.

Its not fear mongering...its what the el-ites have planned

here have a listen to this clip by the truth stream media guys as it contains clips of a socialist lady from denmark speaking at the world economic forum where the elites gather and are talking about the SMART cities of tomorrow where YOU don't own anything

Its not fear mongering...its just taking a cold hard look at what is going on. This is what the fabian elites are talking about:

How your car is SPYING on you: Experts reveal how automakers can track everything from your weight to the food you eat using in-built sensors

Automakers track data through internet-connected systems in modern cars
These systems can tell where you eat and shop, or the weather on your street
Companies collect personal information from millions of vehicles worldwide
Many of these firms keep tight-lipped about how and when they use this data

By Harry Pettit For Mailonline
Published: 14:45, 16 January 2018 | Updated: 17:34, 16 January 2018

Experts have revealed the myriad ways that your car can spy on your personal habits.

Automakers track your vehicle's location, how fast you drive, what entertainment you listen to, through internet-connected systems in modern cars.

Newer cars can even record a driver’s eye movements, the weight of people in the front seats, the weather on your street, and where you prefer to eat.

Companies use personal information collected from tens of millions of vehicles around the globe - and many keep tight-lipped about what they use the data for.

Motorists should be penalised for going just 1mph over the speed limit, Britain’s road policing chief says
By Stephen Walter
31 January 2018 • 12:31am

Motorists should be penalised for going just 1mph over the speed limit, Britain’s road policing chief has said as he called for the 10 per cent buffer zone to be scrapped. Chief Constable Anthony Bangham also said speed awareness courses were being overused, and believes offenders should get fines and points on their licence instead. The warning from the roads policing lead for the National Police Chiefs' Council is significant because many chief constables will take their lead from him.

The West Mercia chief’s speech comes after recent figures showed a rise in road deaths, but motoring chiefs warned it may divert drivers’ attention from the road to their speedometers.

He declared “enough is enough” at the Police Federation roads policing conference, according to the Daily Mail, as he argued that police had lost sight of their duty and that speeding drivers were no longer afraid enough of being caught.

New York businessman Andrew Yang, 43, recently founded the organization Venture for America as he gears up for the 2020 elections.
Yang’s trying to get elected on program that: America needs to radically restructure its society to prevent robots from causing Great Depression-level unemployment.

Yang said:

Uber suspends self-driving vehicle tests after fatal crash
Published time: 19 Mar, 2018 17:16
Edited time: 19 Mar, 2018 17:19

Uber is pausing its autonomous car tests after a woman died in Arizona. The pedestrian was hit by a self-driving Uber vehicle.

The woman died after being hit by the self-driving car operated by the company in Tempe, Arizona, the New York Times reports. The vehicle was driving in autonomous mode with a human driver at the wheel when it struck the unnamed woman as she was crossing the street, Tempe police said.

Driverless tech has reached south-east London: my morning commute in an autonomous pod in North Greenwich
By Ed Wiseman
22 March 2018 • 5:14pm



Sir William Lyons, the founder of Jaguar, allegedly said that “the car is the closest thing we will ever create to something that is alive”. It’s a charming sentiment, especially when you think about the models he was referring to, but I’ve come to a drizzly car park in Greenwich to see a more recent human invention that comes much, much closer to sentience.

It’s certainly not a car. It has four wheels, two headlights and some seats inside, but that’s pretty much where the similarities end. This autonomous pod is one quarter of the GATEway (Greenwich Autonomous Transport Environment) fleet currently being trialled by the TRL transport facility...

They won;t stop the push for driverless cars for one persons death or 100,000 peoples deaths because the technocrats don't care about externalities to their plans such as the sanctity of human life or happiness. They just want to control EVERYTHING including the vehicle you are travelling in. the british government has without any public consultation invested millions of pounds of taxpayers money into driverless cars already and they see them as an integral part of the SMART cities and SMART grid

Life-saving vehicles of the future or Uber's driverless death traps? The sci-fi nirvana of hands-free motoring came to a juddering halt after woman, 49, was mowed down crossing a road

Uber taxi mowed down Elaine Herzberg, 49, as she crossed a dual carriageway
For Uber, it was exactly the sort of accident that was supposed never to happen
This was a ‘safe’ self-driving car, with a battery of sensors and automatic brakes
Uber has suspended its experimental autonomous taxi fleets pending enquiries

By Christian Wolmar For The Mail On Sunday
Published: 22:02, 24 March 2018 | Updated: 23:58, 24 March 2018

There was no screech of tyres, no last minute change of direction. As the grim video footage now visible on You Tube makes clear, the speeding Uber taxi didn’t even brake before mowing down 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg last weekend as she pushed her bike across a dual carriageway in Tempe, near Phoenix, Arizona.

It was exactly the sort of accident that was supposed never to happen. For this was a ‘safe’ self-driving car, a vision of the future armed with a battery of sensors and automatic brakes for just such an emergency.

For Ms Herzberg, however, the new technology proved fatal. Rushed to hospital, she later died of her injuries – and so became the first pedestrian casualty of the driver-free era.

If the crash was a catastrophe for the victim and her family, it is disastrous, too, for the billion-dollar proponents of the fledgling technology.

Uber has suspended its experimental autonomous taxi fleets in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto pending multiple enquiries. And the questions will go well beyond the events of Ms Herzberg’s tragic death last Sunday.

Because, despite the huge investment and many promises, autonomous vehicles remain adrift in an ocean of practical problems, moral doubts and, as we now know, fatal consequences. As a transport writer and analyst for more than 25 years, I believe the promise of a world dominated by self-driving cars is a mirage, and a deadly one at that.

Münster: Driver kills himself after ploughing vehicle into crowd leaving three dead
By Our Foreign Staff Barbara Woolsey Jennifer Rigby
7 April 2018 • 3:47pm

Three people have been killed and 26 injured after a vehicle ploughed into pedestrians in the German city of Münster, with police confirming that the driver of the vehicle has also killed himself.

Police spokesman Andreas Bode told reporters at the scene that six of those injured were in a serious condition and confirmed that the driver was dead.

"The suspect killed himself in the vehicle. The identity of the suspect is not yet clear," he said. However, he said it was too early to describe the incident as an attack, although witnesses have indicated that additional suspects could have potentially fled from the vehicle.

There's a mass police operation ongoing in the city, with helicopters seen overhead and investigators searching the crime scene. Firefighters are tending to the injured and various police and firefighting vehicles are also at the scene, which is now sealed off to the public as police investigate a potentially suspicious object in the vehicle.

The van ploughed into people sitting outside on a warm afternoon in Münster, crashing into tables outside of the Grosser Kiepenkerl restaurant in the historic centre of the city. The restaurant is a popular tourist attraction in the picturesque city of 300,000 residents.

So, what about the human driver that was in the car? Barely looking at the road in the moments leading up to the crash?

George Soros comes to the rescue of sinking Tesla
Published time: 17 May, 2018 01:35
Edited time: 17 May, 2018 09:06

Billionaire investor George Soros has invested in electric car maker Tesla at a time when the company is facing stock sell-off amid severe production and legal problems.

Soros Fund Management invested $35 million in the convertible bonds of Tesla, which are due in March 2019, Reuters reports quoting the US Securities and Exchange Commission. This is not the first collusion between Soros and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. In 2016, Soros helped Musk raise $305 million on SolarCity Corp, a debt-laden solar panel firm backed by Musk and a part of Tesla now.

Tesla has faced many troubles in the last few weeks. Investors are concerned about the company’s ability to produce its cheaper Model 3 sedan. A crash which involved Tesla’s autopilot added concerns about the firm. On Wednesday, Tesla was trading at $283.87 per share, continuing to lose the temporary rebound it saw last week.

Earlier this week, Musk said the firm undergoing a “thorough reorganization.” In the last year alone, Tesla lost over $2 billion. The company was losing $6,500 every minute and needs another $2 billion to get through the current year, according Bloomberg estimates. The problems continued this year after the company lost almost $710 million in the first quarter of 2018.
