In the mobility space, Israel is rivaling Silicon Valley for smarts and start-ups - and beats it in chutzpah.

“We're gonna need partnerships, big and small, particularly with start-ups,” Ford Motor Co. chairman Bill Ford announced at his company's newly-opened research center in Tel Aviv last June. “The tech ecosystem here in Israel is unbelievable,” he added, citing a lack of hierarchy, a highly-educated talent base, leadership that is sharpened by mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Forces, and “the ability to move fast.” He described the new facility as “lifeblood for what Ford Motor Co. will become in the future.”

Though likely to provide the OS of autonomy, BlackBerry also anticipates a larger shift to automobiles as software platforms.

At 2019's TU Automotive conference, Autonomous Vehicle Engineering spoke with two of the industry's most important software sages, BlackBerry's John Wall and Kaivan Karimi, both senior vice presidents and co-heads of Blackberry Technology Solutions. The duo's division includes BlackBerry's security services, the nigh ubiquitous QNX architecture along with products including Jarvis, Certicom and Paratek for the Waterloo, Ontario-based company. Sort of like chatting with the Obi-Wan and Yoda of secure-software architectures, the interview provided an animated back-and-forth between the two well-acquainted BlackBerry execs, discussing the emergence of the vehicle as its own software platform.

To win acceptance, deployment of facial-recognition technology needs to fit within a picture-perfect consumer and legal framework that balances benefits with privacy protection.

Whether it's using your face to confirm payment over your smartphone, monitoring your child at day-camp, or being confirmed as a ticketholder going to a concert, the possibilities for facial recognition technology are virtually endless-and the technology already has become ubiquitous.

With a 45-year history in vehicle testing, Ohio's Transportation Research Center launches a $45-million investment in the automated-vehicle future, becoming North America's largest dedicated AV test facility.

As notions advance regarding the evolving needs and requirements of automated-vehicle (AV) testing, there's a concurrent focus on the capabilities available from the world's comparatively meager number of suitable test facilities. Physical testing of AVs-and vehicles with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)-in controlled environments is crucial, but demand for independent testing capacity continues to swell.

Well aware of the relentless hype that comes with automated driving development, ZF's autonomy boss knows cost will be crucial-and customer persuasion required.

“We are constantly asking this question: Who is the customer likely to buy an SAE Level 4 autonomous vehicle in the consumer passenger market?” This is one of the key queries that drives the thinking of Torsten Gollewski, head of autonomous mobility systems at ZF. The global Tier 1 is playing a crucial role in enabling the next generation of mobility.

No trust in AI systems without data protection

When people surround themselves with microphones and cameras, others will be listening and watching. This reality shouldn't come as a surprise, but remarkably it does. The advent of automated driving will dramatically expand this activity. In fact, it is already creating controversy.

Audi spin-off Holoride uses VR to turn the back seat into an entertainment platform.

From the moment I slipped the Oculus Rift device over my head, I was transported from a routine urban drive in the backseat of an Audi Q7 into an enchanting underwater world. The Virtual Reality (VR) experience obliterated every sight and sound of city life from my consciousness.

Biometric technology is deemed essential to ensuring AV driving safety and advancing the user experience-if privacy issues don't derail its deployment.

Research into potential automotive applications for biometrics-facial and retina scans or fingerprints-is increasing, despite rising concerns about privacy and data security, and outcries from civil liberties advocates. A growing number of OEMs, Tier 1s and startups are striving to add facial recognition capability to driver monitoring systems (DMS).

Improving Lidar - or Defeating It

The buzz at Sensors Expo pitted lidar-tech optimism against the reality of an impending shakeout.

For more than a decade, the lidar market has been led by Velodyne and its spinning towers of 64 or 128 laser beams. But the relatively high cost, delicate architecture, and beefy form factor have made it a competitive target. The growing ranks of competitors fall roughly into two camps. There are the fledgling lidar-makers with novel approaches to distance measurement, laser wavelength, and beam steering. And there are those with radar and vision systems promising lidar-level sensing capabilities at a lower cost.

Harman developers are striving to create human-machine interfaces oriented more towards user needs.

In-car connectivity for today's cars and tomorrow's autonomous vehicles is moving product development norms beyond the traditional engineering approach. “Most products are designed from a straightforward engineering focus: It works like this. But with a user experience approach, it's about designing with empathy,” said Jason Johnson, director of user experience (UX) design at Harman.
