Artificial intelligence and prediction technologies have joined forces so that people and authorities can learn to trust self-driving cars. This is an even greater challenge for the latest generation of these vehicles, which are now one step closer to becoming fully autonomous.
COVID-19 has put the focus squarely on biosecurity. Against the backdrop of social distancing and quarantines to curb the spread of the virus, technologies that were already seen as holding great promise (and threatening) to revolutionise transport and mobility are now gaining ground. Will the pandemic hasten the era of robots, drones and autonomous cars? We analyse this effect, focusing on the case of driverless vehicles.
Achieving a greener car goes beyond the zero-emission car (electric or hydrogen). Alternatives such as new sensors for more efficient driving, cleaner combustion engines or less polluting production, already apply improvements to current vehicles to achieve more environmentally friendly mobility.
Systems based on satellite data, mixed lanes, automatic number plate recognition: roads are also being digitised. The options for changing the model of access to highways and cities are multiplied.
