The networked car is no longer just an idea; it will be mandated in future vehicles

The networked car is no longer just an idea; it will be mandated in future vehicles | the networked car in the future | Scoop.it
The U.S, government is moving on new rules requiring future vehicles come with Wi-Fi technology necessary for cars to communicate with one another. The goal is to prevent accidents, but networked cars could become much more.
Byung Hoon Han's insight:

The author describes about future vehicles with smart IT technologies within 5years. 

The main is about future vehicles which come with Wi-Fi technology necessary for cars to communicate with one another to prevent accidents, including more functions. In particular, the technology is called vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is billing it as a safety technology similar to seat belts and airbags. Moreover, when they combine with autonomous driving technologies, cars could then coordinate driving in configurations that let the most people get to their destination in the fastest way. Finally, NHTSA and the Department of Transportation will propose regulations that would require V2V communications in all new U.S in 2017.

The author provides a basic theoretical V2V technology with pictures and examples which are based on current V2V test by U.S Governments.

Therefore, while the article is useful for understanding of V2V technology, the limitation of the article will require more details of V2V technologies and how it will communicate with current vehicles.

How Google's Self-Driving Car Works - IEEE Spectrum

How Google's Self-Driving Car Works - IEEE Spectrum | the networked car in the future | Scoop.it
Google engineers explain the technology behind their autonomous vehicle and show videos of the road tests
Byung Hoon Han's insight:

The author explains the principle of Google’s autonomous vehicles.

Google’s fleet of robotic Toyota Priuses has logged a great distance without any accident. An autonomous vehicle which consists of Velodyne 64-beam laser, cameras, GPS and other sensors will need lots of computing power and data to avoid obstacles, respecting traffic laws and keeping track of its movements. So this system will reduce road accidents, congestion, and fuel consumption. Moreover this technology will make public transports better safe and more efficient.

There are many supporting evidences, examples and visual materials to understand the principle.

In particular, this article will assist the principle of an autonomous car how a vehicle communicates with IT technologies.

Tesla Working Towards 90 Percent Autonomous Car Within Three Years - IEEE Spectrum

Tesla Working Towards 90 Percent Autonomous Car Within Three Years - IEEE Spectrum | the networked car in the future | Scoop.it
From the sound of things, Elon Musk is trying to change the automotive world (again)
Byung Hoon Han's insight:

The article shows how much Tesla Motors is processing to ready for autonomous cars and about liability with autonomous cars.

The main idea expressed are Tesla Motors is previously able to do 90 percent of miles autonomous driven within three years. CEO in Tesla Motors said fully autonomous cars are quite feasible yet. Autonomous cars will be much safer than human drivers from accidents, but liability will be a huge issue when the car has an accident in autonomous mode. Finally, nobody wants be the first company to sell autonomous cars by liability, but Tesla Motors will be almost ready autonomous cars.

There is a lack of supporting evidences and data in the article.

It is relevant to my thesis because CAR 2 CAR communication technology is based on autonomous cars.
