UK's Leading Autonomous Vehicle Show

Autonomous farming

John Deere, probably the largest manufacturer of agricultural machinery in the world, is developing a new autonomous tractor. Product development and research in the fields of electrification, autonomy through automation and artificial intelligence show how agriculture could work even more sustainably and productively in the future. Autonomy through automation Autonomous tractor: John Deere’s new autonomous…

Nuro and Walmart select Houston for self-driving delivery pilot program

A California-based autonomous vehicle robotics company that has deployed self-driving delivery cars in Houston already has announced another pilot program. Nuro and Walmart announced a new collaboration for high-tech, affordable grocery delivery — first to a select group of shoppers, and then, later in 2020, to a wider range of customers. “Walmart is committed to…

The Challenges to Developing Fully Autonomous Drone Technology

Autonomous drone technology is, to an extent, already available. To demonstrate, let’s assume the aerospace industry were to adopt the automotive industry’s five levels of autonomy. If so, then we can define: Level 0: There is no autonomy. Level 1: There are autonomous systems, like altitude control, but the pilot is in control. Level 2: There…

Driving Adoption In New Mobility: Loyalty Programs

New mobility faces a veritable laundry list of challenges, from regulatory obstacles to a lack of interoperability to vested interests opposing the changes that progress requires. There is nothing unusual about this, however. All technologies, especially deeply transformational ones, face these hurdles. Smart cities are, of course, leading the charge for new mobility. The concept…

The future of autonomous vehicles runs off roads and on to farms, construction sites and mines

Fully self-driving passenger cars are not “just around the corner.” While the well-capitalized leaders — funded by corporations, multibillion-dollar VC funds or advertising revenue — are on the more stable financial ground, many other full-stack autonomous vehicle startups may be looking for the off-ramp. With no clear path to funds outside of venture capital, full-stack startups…

Looking at the different stages of autonomous vehicle testing – and why they’re so crucial to rolling out the tech

Simulators, controlled environments and real-world scenarios are involved in autonomous vehicle testing – with self-driving shuttle buses operating in some cities. Autonomous vehicle testing is well underway – but more real-world experiments are needed to prove the technology’s safety, say experts. While simulators and controlled environments are used frequently for testing self-driving tech, industry leaders…

Robots Take the Wheel as Autonomous Farm Machines Hit the Field

Robots are taking over farms faster than anyone saw coming. The first fully autonomous farm equipment is becoming commercially available, which means machines will be able to completely take over a multitude of tasks. Tractors will drive with no farmer in the cab, and specialized equipment will be able to spray, plant, plough and weed…
