Tesla Autopilot v9.0

We’ll discuss why the trolly paradox isn’t a real issue after all, or at least, why it shouldn’t be; Tesla’s Autopilot V9.0 with Navigate on Autopilot is a game changer; and we look at countries’ preparedness for an autonomous future round the world.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Join me in San Francisco at Carvi’s HQ where I’ll be joined by Philipp Kandal, SVP of Telenav, for an evening of pizza, drinks, and discussion on autonomous cars! Registration is FREE for you and your guests, and the event is THIS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, from 6:30pm-9pm. REGISTER NOW!

The trolly paradox is a distraction

A great article on Forbes by contributor Chunka Mui discusses what I’ve been saying all along: that the trolly paradox, at best, is a senseless discussion; and at worst, it could hinder progress. We discuss what this means.

Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot is live!

Yes, only in North America, and yes, it’s not truly a L3 — or even L4 or L5 — system, but hey, it’s a start. Stop knocking it. The path to autonomous cars is a spectrum, it is not binary, say, like a bridge.

Countries’ preparedness for an autonomous future

Another article on Forbes, by Niall McCarthy, addresses a study on countries’ readiness for an autonomous car future considering four pillars; policy and legislation; technology and innovation; infrastructure; and consumer acceptance.
