Autonomous vehicles – the next revolution – road to the future- Sinclair Knight Merz

khogg9's insight:

(Sinclair Knight Merz), Autonomous vehicles - the next revolution, Part 4 - Road to the future. http://www.globalskm.com/Insights/Achieve-Articles/Items/2013/Autonomous-vehicles-the-next-revolution-road-to-the-future.aspx

 

In this article the author, reviews the potential and probability of not only efficient communication and connection with autonomous cars, but cities for the cars as well.  The author uses hypothesis and planning skills as well as various sources to put forth his ideas on the matter. The authors research focuses on assessing a range of potential concerns in regards to autonomous vehicles, as well as the economy.

 

This article is useful to my research as there is a lot covered from a lot of different view points, as well as lots of ideas put forth. But the limitations of the usefulness are weather the authors ideas are credible enough or not and how well they would play out when autonomous vehicles do come about. This article is based on a prediction of the future so there are no solid facts yet. The author backs up their predictions and with logic and proof relating to the matter. This article will be usefull in the providence of supplementary information for my researched topic.

khogg9's insight:

(Wayne Cunningham, December 23, 2013), CES 2014 will showcase the near future of driving. http://www.cnet.com/news/ces-2014-will-showcase-the-near-future-of-driving/

 

In this article Wayne Cunningham, reviews what will autonomous vehicles bring to the CES 2014 event. The author uses company's views and claims, to describe and inform readers of what to expect at the event. The authors research focuses primarily on what Ford, Mercedes and Toyota have to say about autonomous vehicles becoming a reality and what the future might hold for us.

 

This article is somewhat useful to my research as even though there is a lot of information from various company sources, there seems to be a fair bit of claims and rumors. The limitations of the usefulness of this article to my research is based on the validity of the claims, and weather these turn out to be proven or not at the CES event. This article will be useful to my topic of research because it supply’s a substantial amount of information related to my researched topic, form a variety of car manufacture sources.

In this article Tanya Synder, reviews the practicality, efficiency and safety of autonomous vehicles, in regards too, parking, fuel and emissions, congestion, safety, transit, subsidies and liability. The author uses collected knowledge to make informed opinions about the practicality, efficiency and safety of a future were autonomous vehicles are widely used. Tanya’s research focuses on assessing a range of potential concerns in regards to autonomous vehicles.

 

This article is useful to my research as there is a lot covered from a lot of different sources. However the limitations of the usefulness are dependent on the opinions expressed. This article is based on a prediction of the future so there are no solid facts yet. However the author backs up their predictions and sourced material with past history relating to the matter.

Let the Robot Drive: The Autonomous Car of the Future Is Here | Magazine | WIRED

Robotic vehicles, from Google to Mercedes, have arrived. So what form and purpose will these cars have when we finally let go of the wheel?
khogg9's insight:

(Tom Vanderbilt, 20/01/12 ) Let the Robot Drive: The Autonomous Car of the Future Is Here. http://www.wired.com/2012/01/ff_autonomouscars/

 

In this article Tom Vanderbilt, describes what it might feel like to ride in an autonomous vehicle of the future. The author uses his creative ideas as well as collected knowledge from various sources, to give readers a sort of descriptive feel (in a story format) about what it might feel like to be in a robot car. The authors research is mostly (I assume) from watching autonomous vehicle videos. Especially the google drive video, seeing as "google car" is mentioned.

 

This article is not really useful to my research as there isn't really any specific credible sources, even if the story sounds well researched. The limitations of the usefulness is dependent on the opinions research and ideas expressed by the author in the story. This article is based on a prediction of the future so there are no solid facts yet either. This article will be usefull in the "what will it feel like" part of my essay.

Driverless cars!? For real? Yes! It will happen. Dan Neil rides in a test model

Driverless cars!? For real? Yes! It will happen. Dan Neil rides in a test model | Autonomous Vehicles | Scoop.it
Dan Neil says computer-controlled cars will be a reality. The question isn't "if" but "how" can technology allow humans to take a back seat to the computer.
khogg9's insight:

(Dan Neil, September 27, 2013) ‘THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: Driverless Cars for the Road Ahead.’ http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424127887323808204579085271065923340

 

In this article Dan Neil, reviews the not if, but how can technology allow humans to make computer controlled cars a reality. The author uses statistics and quotes from various other sources to put across his belief and opinion, of autonomous cars becoming a reality. Dan’s research focuses primarily on the likelihood of autonomous vehicles becoming a reality and what that reality would be like.

 

This article is useful to my research as there is a lot of information from various sources, like statistics and quotes. The limitations of the usefulness of this article is based solely on the validity, and relevance to my topic of research. However such a large volume of text from a considerable quantity of sources is backed up by each other, by means of cross-referencing and statistical facts. This article will be useful to my topic of research because it supply’s a substantial amount of information related to my researched topic.
