Otto make world's first autonomous truck delivery

Otto has been able to demonstrate its self-driving truck technology, which can be retrofitted to any normal rig, in the real-world for the first time, with the world's first autonomous truck delivery. The journey took place last week (October 20) in Colorado, one of only a handful of US states that expressly permits such vehicles on its roads and, as can be seen in this video, pushed the concept of a human remaining in charge to the limit: There was enough confidence in the technology for the driver to vacate his seat and sat further back in the cab for some of the journey. Never a brand to miss out on a bit of clever promotion Budweiser beer was the loudly trumpeted cargo. Brewer Anheuser-Busch could be a huge beneficiary of such technology – they ship over 1.2 million truckloads of products a year.

Full demonstration of new V2I traffic-signal prediction system

ERTICO – ITS Europe has just released this video, which was shot at the ITS European Congress in Glasgow, earlier this year. It features a demonstration of a new V2I in-car tool called GLOSA (green light optimal speed advice). Using 3G communication GLOSA notifies drivers about the status of upcoming traffic signals, and is able to recommend the ideal speed at which to travel in order to reach the light when it is green. In this way traffic can flow more evenly with fewer stops and starts, which will help to reduce congestion and vehicle emissions.
