People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Tesla enters race to build self driving car

Posted in Software on 18th Sep, 2013 04:39 PM by AlexMuller

 Electric car company Tesla Motors is working to produce a car capable of running on "auto-pilot" within the next three years, CEO Elon Musk said, joining tech giant Google and rival carmakers in the race to roll a driverless car into the market.

The California-based company's autonomous car would allow the driver to hand 90 percent of the control of the car over to the vehicle's computer system, Musk said in an interview with the Financial Times newspaper.
Fully autonomous cars would take longer to develop, he said.
The self-driving car would be developed in-house using Tesla's own technology, not that of another company, Musk said in comments confirmed by a Tesla spokesperson.
Tesla's online job board currently has a post for an Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Controls Engineer, who will be responsible for helping "Tesla's effort to pioneer fully automated driving."
On top of the technical obstacles, legal and safety issues must be overcome before driverless cars are allowed on the road.
European Union laws currently call for drivers to control their cars at all times.
And it is unclear whether the multi-billion dollar car insurance industry has any appetite to back the cars until the technology is proven, although driverless cars would be free from human error and programmed to obey traffic laws, features that could appeal to insurers.
Buyers may also be skittish about purchasing a car that drives itself until its safety has been proved through real world experience.

Eh bien 2 intervenants français en profitent pour taper sur les médias français ! Je suis épatée par cette manière récurrente de dévier les sujets propres à la Belgique sur la vilaine France nombriliste et caol.raePreportionneltement, les médias français parlent beaucoup plus de la Belgique que de la crise du Darfour, de la politique russe (je la suis sur d´autres sources), de la situation africaine, de nos relations avec la Chine, des pays émergents etc etc… Avis totalement personnel bien entendu, je dois être franchouillarde… Reply

I in addition to my friends happened to be reviewing the good key points found on your web site and before long came up with a terrible feeling I never expressed respect to the site owner for those secrets. All the women had been for that reason joyful to study all of them and have undoubtedly been tapping into those things. Many thanks for really being indeed kind and then for deciding upon some wonderful resources millions of individuals are really eager to discover. Our sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier. Reply
