(Little, Brown and Co. via AP) In "The Night Fire" by Michael Connelly, John Jack Thompson, Harry Bosch's first mentor when he became a police officer, dies. He leaves behind a gift for Bosch: a murder book that highlights a cold case from almost 30 years ago.At first glance the crime appears to be a simple drug deal gone wrong, but it was never resolved.
Don't be surprised to see self - driving S-Classes wafting about the streets of San Jose , thanks to a Bosch /Benz partnership. Thankfully for those people, German Tier 1 supplier Bosch and Mercedes are working on a self - driving car test platform that will ferry people between San Jose , California's
Another autonomous ride-hailing test project has popped up in the U.S. This time, Daimler and Bosch , one of the largest automotive tech and hardware suppliers in the world, are partnering to pilot a robotaxi service in San Jose , California. The program will use automated Mercedes -Benz S Class vehicles
Do you know the way to San Jose? It doesn't matter if you're in a self-driving car. As they previewed, Bosch and Mercedes-Benz have commenced trials for an automated ride-hailing service in the Silicon Valley city of San Jose. To start with, autonomous S-Class Mercedes-Benz vehicles (with safety drivers at the wheel) will shuttle "a select group of users" between North San Jose and downtown.
The busy San Carlos/Stevens Creek corridor between west San Jose and downtown should be good test for the self-driving tech used by Mercedes and Bosch. Rather than just playing with prototypes, the companies want to create a production-ready SAE Level 4/5 self-driving system that can be built into different makes and models. To do that, they're using a combination of AI, a million-square foot proving ground in Stuttgart and the real world San Jose ride-hailing tests.

San Jose is expected to grow by 40 percent over the next two years, so the city wants to see the impact of autonomous cars. "We want to know more about how automated vehicles can help improve safety and reduce congestion, as well as make mobility more available, sustainable, and inclusive," said San Jose project director Dolan Beckel in a statement. "If automated driving is to become everyday reality, the technology has to work reliably and safely."

CES 2020 recap: Day two .
The question is no longer "where's my flying car," but "am I willing to get in one?" Uber and Hyundai certainly hope so, as they unveiled the S-A1 flying taxi concept could one day shuttle you at up to 180 MPH from one hub to another. Speaking of a company going outside its wheelhouse, Sony unveiled the Vision-S EV replete with sensors and copious screens. Not to be outdone, Mercedes unveiled its own future-tastic self-driving AVTR EV and decided to do a tie-in with James Cameron's Avatar, for some reason. Next, we hopped into Audi's AI:Me for an autonomous spin, complete with a VR headset.
