  • Deep learning could predict car trouble before you notice it
  • Ultrasonic microphones can detect aberrations in mechanical sounds and alert the operator before a problem happens.
  • Trying to replicate the sounds your car is making to the mechanic you’re talking to is equal parts frustrating and embarrassing.
  • The idea is that before a problem happens, the operator will know as soon as there’s an aberration in the car’s normal operating sounds.
  • VW’s latest acquisition helps you pay for parking by phone

  • An early computer rendering of Zoox’s Boz sports car, in which passengers face each other as the car drives itself.
  • IHS Automotive has predicted that by 2025 there will be 300,000 self-driving cars and just as many driverless vehicles on the road; by 2030, there will be 2.2 million self-driving and driverless cars on the road; and by 2035, there will be 11 million self-driving and 10 million driverless vehicles in operation.
  • is not a self-driving car any more than the automobile is a horseless carriage.
  • As the auto industry races toward shipping fully autonomous vehicles, self-driving technology startups have become attractive acquisition targets for traditional automakers and others.
  • Ford Motor Co. plans to begin mass producing a fully autonomous vehicle by 2021 that it will sell for ride-hailing markets such as Uber.

Zoox Labs, a two-year old Silicon Valley autonomous vehicle start-up, just raised another $50 million in investment funding, which skyrocketed the company’s market value to $1.5 billion even before it’s shipped a single car.
