Cars that update themselves will be a $700 billion market by 2034 April 16, 2024, 8:56 a.m.
The software-defined vehicle (SDV) and AI cars market is set to be worth over US$700 billion by 2034, representing around 20% of the global car market, according to IDTechEx’s report ‘Software-Defined Vehicles, Connected Cars and AI in Cars 2024-2034. That sum can be sourced from several areas, such as monthly connectivity subscriptions, commission from in-vehicle payments, and one-time software upgrades. Thanks to improvements in-car connectivity, onboard hardware capabilities, and a global shift in consumer preferences toward subscription models, the software-defined vehicle market is set to grow at compound annual rate of 34% between 2023 and 2034

Tesla scraps low-cost car plans amid fierce Chinese EV competition April 7, 2024, 1:30 p.m.
Tesla has canceled the long-promised inexpensive car that investors have been counting on to drive its growth into a mass-market automaker, according to three sources familiar with the matter and company messages seen by Reuters. The automaker will continue developing self-driving robotaxis on the same small-vehicle platform, the sources said.
Self-driving car concept is a hotel-like sleeping pod on wheels April 1, 2024, 10:40 a.m.
Autonomous vehicles are still a somewhat controversial topic these days, but even detractors and critics will begrudgingly admit that it is the inevitable future. Given a foolproof and safe implementation, it opens up plenty of opportunities for people to do more during their travels, especially over very long distances. They can be more productive with work, spend more quality time with family, or simply get a good night’s sleep in transit. The latter isn’t exactly comfortable to do with today’s car designs, but that’s only if you don’t let go of current conventions and limitations. This design concept for a mobile sleeping pod, in contrast, pulls out all the stops and demonstrates what’s possible with the right technologies, the right design, and especially the right shape.
NXP Tackles Integration Complexity for Automotive SDVs March 31, 2024, 11:35 a.m.
Every time an OEM wants to add a feature, they have to change the whole stack and start from scratch. And there are separate integration efforts for each ECU—an effort that increases exponentially with more ECUs, Multiple vehicle classes and architectures require scalability. For this, the system needs to be scalable, you need consistency in terms of IP, and you need to be able to move functionality from one ECU to another with minimal effort, time and resource.

A Vehicle-Edge-Cloud Framework for Computational Analysis of a Fine-Tuned Deep Learning Model March 25, 2024, 3:57 p.m.
The cooperative, connected, and automated mobility (CCAM) infrastructure plays a key role in understanding and enhancing the environmental perception of autonomous vehicles (AVs) driving in complex urban settings. However, the deployment of CCAM infrastructure necessitates the efficient selection of the computational processing layer and deployment of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) models to achieve greater performance of AVs in complex urban environments.
GM Ends OnStar Data Sharing Following Public Protest March 25, 2024, 3:56 p.m.
While the data brokers contend that personalized insurance premiums based on driving behavior could incentivize safer practices and lead to lower rates, skeptics worry about the potential misuse and exploitation of this data. Beyond individual privacy concerns, there are broader societal implications at play. The data collected by insurance companies could be used not only to assess risk but also to make sweeping judgments about individuals’ lifestyles and behaviors, disproportionately affecting certain demographics.
La gronde contre les voitures électriques monte chez les assureurs March 20, 2024, 6:15 a.m.
Une voiture qui ne peut pas être assurée, ou à des tarifs exorbitants, est globalement invendable. Les assureurs sont prêts à utiliser ce moyen de pression pour que les constructeurs repensent un peu mieux la réparabilité de leurs modèles. Cet élément semble être passé au second plan concernant les voitures électriques, avec des coûts de réparation qui flambent.

Honda and Nissan point to partnership for EVs, hybrids, software March 17, 2024, 2:11 p.m.
Nissan and Honda on Friday disclosed that they’re considering a “strategic partnership in the fields of vehicle electrification and intelligence.” As of yet, the companies have only committed to a feasibility study for the idea, but such a partnership would aim to combine strengths and accelerate carbon-neutrality and safety efforts for both companies. The initial study will include “automotive software platforms, core components related to EVs, and complementary products,” according to a release on what at this point remains a memorandum of understanding.
The Dogood ZERO: An Electric Microcar For Urban Living March 17, 2024, 2:09 p.m.
It’s probably no secret by now that I am a fan of tiny electric conveyances such as enclosed quadricycles, tricycles, and the like, even though I think we’ve got a long way to go (esp. in the US) until mass adoption, from mainstreaming their presence on streets and roads to building out more of the public charging infrastructure to including more dedicated parking options. However, issues like those have been the case with full-sized EVs since the get-go, but that hasn’t seemed to slow down their adoption rates any, and so here I am with yet another fun-sized horseless carriage.
We Need Waaaaaaaay More EV Chargers At Retailers March 17, 2024, 2:08 p.m.
The fact is, there are three core places where EV charging stations are particularly useful: at home, at work, and at places where people regularly (one or twice a week, at least) spend a decent chunk of time. If you have home or workplace charging, the third one probably isn’t needed. However, if someone doesn’t have home or workplace charging, the third one is critical. And where do people spend a chunk of time once or twice a week? Big retail stores where they get groceries and other things, like Target, Walmart, and Cosco. Of course, other retail stores could also help to fill in the gaps for times when one of the other options isn’t available.

Problems With EVs Are Exaggerated Into Soundbites - And That's A Problem March 17, 2024, 2:06 p.m.
A pattern exists in which an electric vehicle (EV) has a small problem that’s likely fixed with a software update. In the meantime, the issue is blown out of proportion by news outlets — many of which are social media platforms. What the same “news” stories fail to acknowledge are the extensive difficulties that internal combustion engine-powered vehicles experience.
