Alphabet is the Rodney Dangerfield of tech companies. It gets no respect. Waymo, its self-driving car subsidiary, announced recently it will launch a fully autonomous taxi service in Phoenix in 2018 — years ahead of schedule. August 19, 2018 Mountain View / CA / USA - Waymo self driving car performing tests on a street near Google's headquarters, Silicon ValleyGetty Self-driving cars are real. And make no mistake, they are about to make investors rich. There are plenty of autonomous vehicle skeptics. Thumb through any car enthusiast magazine, and you are likely to find a story about the limited scope of sensors and software. Dig further and you’ll probably find some anecdote about lack of use cases. There is a vocal subset of people who love driving their
In another version jump, the latest Google app beta is rolling out this afternoon. Google app 8.49 details work on linking compatible cars with Google Assistant and the ability to share Collections. Other features in-development include auto-downloading in Google Podcasts and a Google Lens history. About APK Insight: In this ‘APK Insight’ post, we’ve decompiled the latest version of an application that Google uploaded to the Play Store.

About 70 percent of China's internet searches go through Baidu.

If you believe the CEOs, a fully autonomous car could be only months away. In 2015, Elon Musk predicted a fully autonomous Tesla by 2018; so did Google. Delphi and MobileEye’s Level 4 system is currently slated for 2019, the same year Nutonomy plans to deploy thousands of driverless taxis on the streets of Singapore. GM will put a fully autonomous car into production in 2019, with no steering wheel or ability for drivers to intervene. There’s real money behind these predictions, bets made on the assumption that the software will be able to catch up to the hype. On its face, full autonomy seems closer than ever. Waymo is already testing cars on limited-but-public roads in Arizona. Tesla and a host of other imitators already sell a limited form of autopilot, counting on drivers to inte
