AAA Study Reveals Extent of Reliance on Assisted Driving Technologies

In AAA study, researchers have found that many drivers trust assisted driving technologies beyond their intended scopes. Of the 1,380 vehicle owners that responded to the survey, 30 percent of owners with Blind Spot Monitoring at least sometimes rely on technology to change lanes without visually checking their blind spot. What may be even more troubling is that 29 percent of respondents reported, "at least occasionally feeling comfortable engaging in other activities while driving with ACC." Additionally, only 33 percent recognized that dirt, ice and snow could obstruct the sensors used in automatic emergency braking.

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. 

Artificial Intelligence Algorithm Teaches A Car To Drive Itself

This is the future: self-driving vehicles that learn instinctively through machine learning, artificial intelligence...and that future is not so far away from us. At Cambridge University, an algorithm developed by Ph.D students teaches a car to follow a lane in a matter of twenty minutes. Machine learning is coming up quickly in the motor vehicle industry.

Los Angeles May Ban Bird & Lime Scooters Very Soon

The end of dockless scooters in Los Angeles may have come earlier than most expected. In what some have described as similar to a social experiment, rental scooter companies Bird and Lime released a fleet of dockless electric scooters for consumers to unlock using a smartphone app. Within a week, the city of Los Angeles may issue cease and desist letters to all electric scooter rental companies operating within its city limits. The moratorium on dockless scooters will allow city council to finalize regulations on electric scooters including speed limits and taillight requirements. Currently, Bird scooters can travel up to 15 miles per hour.

Santa Monica Police Department Humorous E-Scooter Safety Video

Officers will continue to enforce the rules of the road to prevent electric scooter accidents.
