Your Future Smart Car Could Use AI To Help You Drive

  Your Future Smart Car Could Use AI To Help You Drive At this year’s CES, chipmaker Nvidia is showcasing new technology that could enable automakers to develop AI virtual assistants that are far smarter than the in-car versions of Alexa and Siri we’re used to interacting with today.  Nvidia announced two new software platforms for self-driving cars during a press conference on Sunday: Drive IX and Drive AR. The former allows carmakers to create artificially intelligent co-pilots that take advantage of sensors both inside and outside of the car to provide assistance. Volkswagen will be one of the first partners to begin experimenting with Drive IX in its I.D. Buzz prototype.

Warwick: British GP must be affordable to retain F1 status

  Warwick: British GP must be affordable to retain F1 status President of the BRDC Derek Warwick says in order for the British Grand Prix to keep hold of its place on the Formula 1 calendar post-2019, the event must become more affordable. The BRDC triggered a break clause in Silverstone’s contract as host of the British Grand Prix last year, which had been intended to run until 2026, due to the racing drivers’ club recording annual loses year-on-year. The track signed a 17-year deal with former chief executive Bernie Ecclestone back in 2009 that included a 5% escalator, meaning the cost to host the grand prix was £17 million in 2017 – and set to increase to £26 million by the end of the contract. Warwick expects negotiations over a potential new contact to begin in the new year, but insists Britain’s status as the ‘home of motorsport’ doesn’t guarantee the future of the British Grand Prix. “The grand prix is too expensive, we’re losing money and that’s why we triggered the break clause,” Warwick told the Jersey Evening Post. “Britain is the home of motorsport. Does that mean there will always be a British Formula 1 Grand Prix? Absolutely not. “Of course we want a British Grand Prix and for it to stay at Silverstone, but we want it to be affordable so that we can make just enough money to reinvest in the circuit. “We can’t do that under the present deal.

Mitsubishi's mirrorless car cameras can spot distant traffic .
It can tell the difference between people, cars and bikes, too.The technology uses the brand's proprietary AI to give drivers advanced warning of upcoming obstacles, and is expected to help prevent accidents, especially when changing lanes. The system has a visual-cognition mode, which mimics human visual behavior to focus on the right thing in any given field of view, and it can distinguish between object types, such as pedestrians, cars and motorcycles (not that it's okay to drive into any of them, of course).
