Uber releases its fleet of Jump e-scooters in Santa Monica

As part of Santa Monica's e-scooter pilot program, Uber has recently launched its fleet of e-scooters, which look exactly like their bike program. Jump, the Uber owned Shared Bike and Scooter Company, has a fleet of 500 e-bikes and 250 e-scooters available for rent through the Uber app. The pricing for Jump's scooters is comparable to that of Bird and Lime at $1 to unlock the device and 15 cents per minute to ride. Eventually, Lime scooters will also be rentable through the Uber App although this may take some time before that deal finalizes. In wake of recent laws passed in Los Angeles to regulate e-scooters, it seems the next move for Jump will be to initiate operations in Los Angeles neighborhoods as soon as possible.

Autonomous Driving Meets the Railways of Germany

In Potsdam Germany, Siemens is putting there autonomous driving technology on German roadways, but with one major limitation. The self-driving technology will operate on railcars, thereby significantly limiting the number of options the algorithm must sort through. By reducing the complexity of the decision making, Siemens looks to improve its driverless technology through the trial period. Siemens would like their railcars to behave more human, i.e. slow down cautiously when a potential collision is ahead instead of slamming on the breaks. While the difference between these two actions may seem insignificant, the difference is noticeable in its effect on the transit system schedule. While many are excited by the prospects of bringing more effective autonomous driving to consumer vehicles, the Federal Railroad Administration wants to see some these technologies implemented in the United States.
