Volkswagen has unveiled what it says is its first autonomous concept car, describing it as a “comfortable lounge on wheels”.
The company claims to be the first automobile manufacturer to present an integrated mobility concept for mobility of the future in road traffic, including a concept car developed from scratch for autonomous driving.
Volkswagen says “Sedric”, the name of the new self-driving car, provides an insight into the future of individual mobility that can be used by everyone, but which can be geared to personal needs.
Cloud-based automation software can make BYOD a secure and practical option for businesses. This kind of capability offers a tempting possibility for many businesses, as Howard Williams, marketing director of digital engagement specialist Parker Software, explains
It might seem like they’ve been around forever, but smartphones have only been ubiquitous for the past five years.
Before that, devices such as Handspring’s innovative Palm Treo series (pictured above) were too far ahead of their time to take off.
CNH Industrial, the agricultural technology giant, is showcasing its new autonomous tractor.
The company says the driverless vehicle will boost precision and productivity in the farming sector.
CNH says the autonomous tractor will enable better use of labor, integration into current machinery fleets, and bring the flexibility to work unmanned around the clock with real time data monitoring – and, in the future, the ability to automatically respond to weather events.
Audi is claiming its autonomous driving technology is the best in the world. The company says a recent test of one of its autonomous cars “once again confirms its leading role in the field of piloted driving”.
Audi was testing its latest research car, the Audi A7, and the piloted driving concept which for some reason it has called “Jack”.
Maglev trains were not mentioned, but they don’t need to be, since it’s the first thing that comes to mind when you say magnets in such a context. Think of those giant maglev train networks in China – that’s exactly what the writer was thinking at the time.
We haven‘t looked into it much, not even googled it, but we believe our website could be the first to ever mention spherical wheels in a serious technology context.
Goodyear has just shown some designs for a spherical wheel, as reported on Dezeen.com. It only takes a few minutes to create images using computer software – on any application. It’s as easy as a gear shift manoeuvre.
But it takes a genuinely creative mind to achieve paradigm shifts, and come up with ideas that change the whole game. And we would obviously claim that maybe, just maybe, we came up with that idea first.
Or perhaps it was a coincidence. Who knows? Seriously. Who knows?
