Bosch Completes Sensor Portfolio for Automated Driving

Bosch Completes Sensor Portfolio for Automated Driving

Good things come in threes - and automated driving is no exception. Before safe automated driving can become a reality, a third sensor principle is needed in addition to camera and radar. Consequently, Bosch is making long-range lidar sensors production-ready - the first lidar (light detection and ranging) system that is suitable for automotive use.

Mars 2020 Rover Completes Its First Drive

Mars 2020 Rover Completes Its First Drive

NASA's next Mars rover has passed its first driving test. A preliminary assessment of its activities found that the rover checked all the necessary boxes as it rolled forward and backward and pirouetted in a clean room at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The next time the Mars 2020 rover drives, it will be rolling over Martian soil.

Electric Vehicles: A Look Back at 2019

Electric Vehicles: A Look Back at 2019

Few of the giant car makers have shown urgency in transitioning away from the internal combustion engine. What's more, the automotive market is set to decline once again in 2019 whilst electrifying newcomers made huge gains in front of sleeping incumbents' noses. Although a large fraction of this is orders (not deliveries), if OEMs do not wake up now, they never will.

Smart Intersections Could Cut Autonomous Car Congestion

Smart Intersections Could Cut Autonomous Car Congestion

In the not-so-distant future, city streets could be flooded with autonomous vehicles. Self-driving cars can move faster and travel closer together, allowing more of them to fit on the road - potentially leading to congestion and gridlock on city streets.
