Smart Driving Cars Podcast with Alain Kornhauser and Dick Mudge

I had a great podcast discussion with Alain Kornhauser and Richard Mudge on automated driving, applications, use cases, and remaining challenges. Most of it was a serious discussion, and we also had a lot of fun taking some things a bit more lightheartedly.

We covered a lot of ground from a brief review of the front runners in the autonomous vehicles field, pilot programs, consumer needs, etc. And of course Alain Kornhauser being Alain Kornhauser, we also had to talk about things happening in Trenton, NJ and the new Mercedes-Benz AG Drive Pilot.

Thanks to Fred Fishkin for coordinating the podcast.

Silicon Valley and Detroit Need One Another, Dr. Sven Beiker, Samsung Forum

Silicon Valley is often called “The New Detroit” and Detroit likes to brag that it has a long-standing history of startups with an entrepreneurial spirit that is still alive today. What’s more, basically all automotive corporations have now R&D locations in Silicon Valley and “in return” tech companies plan to manufacture their autonomous vehicles in Michigan. It seems there is a battle between Detroit and Silicon Valley as to who will win the race toward the future of the automobile. However, this race is much more about collaboration than it is about competition as no player can win just by itself. In this talk, Dr. Sven Beiker looks at the strengths that Detroit and Silicon Valley bring to the table when it comes to autonomous, connected, electric, and shared automobiles. He also discusses the necessary technology to create a world of sustainable, safe, and enjoyable mobility to suggest which ingredients from Detroit and Silicon Valley the automobile of the future will need.

The future of the automobile is autonomous, connected, electric, and shared – there doesn’t seem to be much debate about this. However, when and how those trends are going to shape up is subject to much discussion. This talk by Sven Beiker at the Seoul Motor Show in April 2017 takes a fresh look at those trends and what can be expected when.
