Automated vehicles not an ‘if’ but a ‘when’

Automated vehicles are coming, but is the industry and the public ready? The automotive industry once questioned whether electric motors would replace the internal combustion engine (ICE) as the primary powertrain option for consumers. Today, the industry is facing a similar challenge regarding the adoption of automated vehicles.

Rethinking the HUD

Head-up displays (HUD) debuted in the late 1950s as a means of providing jet fighter pilots critical information while maintaining situational awareness outside the cockpit. Today these systems for projecting data onto the windscreens of cars and trucks are becoming a vital conduit of information to drivers.

View from a Visionary: Chris Urmson

When a blueprint for “the 21st century mobility engineer” finally emerges-defined by expertise in computer engineering, robotics, and the ability to sling a mean soldering gun-Chris Urmson may well be its model.

Autonomous agriculture is growing

A demonstration coming up in Maricopa, Arizona may offer an important signal about the future of farming: autonomous agriculture. Like passenger and commercial vehicle makers and users, operators of farm equipment want to work more efficiently, profitably and safely.

Expanding the Role of FPGAs

The increasingly varied nature of data tied to safety systems and connected cars and trucks is altering electronic architectures, putting more emphasis on adaptability during design phases and after new vehicles enter the field. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) are increasingly seeing use in production vehicles, with expectations that usage could grow as artificial intelligence (AI) and over-the-air updating become more commonplace.
