Set Alert for Autonomy
EXCLUSIVE

Q&A: Optimus Ride CEO Talks Autonomous Shuttles, Robotaxis and the Future of Mobility

Sean Harrington describes the Optimus Ride strategy of operating low-speed geofenced autonomous shuttles to reduce costs for communities, provide a shorter wait time than current public transportation and reduce vehicle miles traveled, pollution and traffic congestion.

Software Defined Architectures: The Burgeoning Business Model

Next-generation E/E architectures will create new business models for automakers and suppliers. But a Wards Intelligence survey shows few see themselves as pacesetters, and there’s some uncertainty about where the best monetization opportunities are. The massive change in operations, and the associated costs, will put constraints on the timeframe and depth of the changes in infrastructure and vehicle architectures that OEMs will be able to address.

Crash Course in Autonomous Vehicles: Overview of AV Market and Technologies

Self-driving vehicles take data from sensors and use it to interpret the surrounding environment.  AI software determines the current situation and location, then controls the speed and plots a path to the target destination.

Cyber-security in Automotive

Lately, cybersecurity has dramatically grown in importance in the automotive industry, although in Wards´ opinion it has not been properly addressed yet. In the past 5 years, the several “accidents,” where hackers have been able to take full, or partial, control of vehicles´ functions, are an evident and worrying indicator.
