As Uber and Tesla struggle with driverless cars, Waymo moves forward
"The last few months have had a lot of bad news for fans of self-driving cars. Last December, after news that Volvo and Ford might not achieve ambitious early goals, Wired wrote that self-driving cars were entering a "trough of disillusionment." Events over the last six months have only deepened that trough."

IoT devices could be next customer data frontier
"Regardless of the vendor, all of this is about understanding the customer better to provide a central data gathering system with the hope of giving people exactly what they want. We are no longer a generic mass of consumers. We are instead individuals with different needs, desires and requirements, and the best way to please us they say, is to understand us so well, that the brand can deliver the perfect experience at exactly the right moment."

Uber hits a roadblock as Arizona suspends its autonomous car tests
"Following a fatal accident last week that saw an Uber self-driving car collide with and kill a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona – believed to be the first death caused by an autonomous car – the state has suspended Uber’s tests there. The Associated Press reports that, in a letter to Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, Arizona state Governor Doug Ducey said that footage of the crash raised concerns about the company’s ability to safely test its tech in Arizona, and that it failed to comply with his expectation of prioritizing public safety above all else in these operations"

Tesla is worth more than General Motors or Ford
"By contrast, General Motors—which sold roughly 20 times the number of vehicles during Q1 2017—is worth a mere $50.3 billion. Ford, which also delivered more than half a million vehicles in Q1, is worth just $45 billion. If that sounds bonkers, you haven't heard anything yet. Some analysts are predicting that Tesla could hit $500 a share."

What the Internet of Things will look like 10 years from now - by @tomraftery
"Connected Transportation will enable tremendous efficiencies, and a major increase in safety as we transition to predictive maintenance of transportation fleets, as vehicles become autonomous and have vehicle-to-vehicle communication protocols as the norm, and as insurance premiums start to favour autonomous driving modes (Tesla cars have 40% fewer crashes when in Autopilot mode according to the NHTSA)."

Monetizing Personalized Transportation Experiences by Exploiting Big Data - by @esimoudis
"Understanding the passenger and enabling the creation of personalized transportation experiences to address the challenges brought by the introduction of ACE vehicles and Mobility Services under a new hybrid model that combines car ownership with car access, relies on a rich set of insights derived from the continuous exploitation of big data using machine intelligence. Taking advantage of these opportunities will require that incumbents accept to be in the insights-generation business rather than just in the manufacturing and distribution business."

Tesla losses grow, but Musk says production goals will be met by year-end
"In Tesla’s Q2 2016 financial statement released today, the company reported a net loss of $293 million (~£220 million) for the quarter, making it Tesla’s 13th straight quarterly loss. (By Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, the company lost only $150 million. GAAP standards account for certain things on a car company’s balance sheet, like leased vehicles, differently than non-GAAP bookkeeping does.)"

Can Technology Save Us From Bad Driving?
"Maybe the real problem is us humans. After the crash, USA Today discovered YouTube footage of other Tesla owners playing Jenga and Checkers while driving, or even taking a nap. “Even though Tesla tells drivers to ‘keep your hands on the wheel at all times and stay alert,’ the temptation to test a no-hands drive is just too much,” the article concluded."

No Technology — Not Even Tesla’s Autopilot — Can Be Completely Safe
"Instead, what a car crash and a nuclear power plant have in common is an engineering conundrum shared by many other complex technological systems. You can engineer a system to be safer, but you can’t engineer it to be completely safe. It’s like casual sex, but with even more moving parts."

Meet Olli, the Electric Self-Driving 3D Printed Shuttle You Can Hail with a Smartphone
"The company is now working with officials to bring Olli to Miami-Dade, Las Vegas and Denmark. No doubt this exciting new possibility for self-driving public transport needs to be fully tested on the road — and fully secured on the growing (but vulnerable) Internet of Things. But we have to admit, the daily commute looks a lot less hellish with a fleet of smart vehicles that can not only chauffeur you around, but that can also come pick you up"

Driverless Cars Recognize Peds Better With Deep Learning Algorithm - by @kimberlymok
"Autonomous cars use a variety of technologies like radar, lidar, odometry and computer vision to detect objects and people on the road, prompting it to adjust its trajectory accordingly. But these tools can drive up the cost of driverless cars, and still aren’t as effective as the human brain in visually distinguishing some objects from pedestrians."
