Ontario Announces $80 Million For Autonomous Driving Research

  Ontario Announces $80 Million For Autonomous Driving Research Image courtesy Trending Stratford on Twitter Ontario will reportedly announce today $80 million in funding for autonomous vehicle research, which will be distributed to projects located throughout the province. According to information reported by the Stratford Beacon Herald received from an unnamed source in advance of the government's official announcement this afternoon, the biggest chunk of money will go to that southern Ontario city to build on its status as a self-driving vehicle demonstration hub. Other southern Ontario centres set to benefit include London and Windsor, which will split $5 million, while Kitchener-Waterloo, already known as a tech-intensive municipality, will receive $5 million of its own. Oshawa's University of Ontario Institute of Technology, McMaster University in Hamilton and the University of Ottawa will each also get allocations of $5 million. Each of the pots of money is intended to turn those cities and institutions into regional innovation centres that will develop technology for autonomous and connected vehicles, which will be tested in Stratford. Testing will take place at a facility built earlier this year by a company called Renesas Electronics America. It's located a little more than a kilometre to the southeast of the city's downtown.

This partnership will incorporate Aurora's self-driving technology into Hyundai vehicles starting with models custom-developed and launched in test programs and pilot cities. Level 4 autonomous vehicles defined by SAE can operate without human input or oversight under select conditions.

This partnership will incorporate Aurora’s self-driving technology into Hyundai vehicles starting with models custom-developed and launched in test programs and pilot cities.

Over the longer term, Hyundai and Aurora will work to commercialize self-driving vehicles worldwide.

To start, the partnership will focus on the ongoing development of hardware and software for automated and autonomous driving and the back-end data services required for Level 4 automation.

Simulator testing urged for advanced autonomous systems

  Simulator testing urged for advanced autonomous systems British Parliament called for more real world testing of full autonomyThe call from Dutch company Cruden followed the presentation of the Budget by Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer (Finance Minister, if you will), which called for increased testing of autonomous vehicles on UK roads without human operators by 2021.

Level 4 autonomous vehicles defined by SAE can operate without human input or oversight under select conditions. The goal of the partnership is to deploy autonomous driving quickly, broadly and safely.

Hyundai’s latest new-generation fuel-cell vehicle, which made its official global debut at CES 2018 this week, will become the first model to be utilized in the test processes starting this year.

The fuel-cell powertrain will offer an ideal platform to implement autonomous driving technologies, which requires a massive amount of power to support the large amount of data communication as well as the operation of hardware such as sensors.

Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle will be able to provide a stable electric power supply without concerns about driving range.

Fiat, Hyundai In Talks For Partnership On Hydrogen Technology

  Fiat, Hyundai In Talks For Partnership On Hydrogen Technology Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is in talks with Hyundai about strengthening a partnership that could see the Italian-based automaker develop hydrogen engines. Speaking Saturday at the Alfa Romeo Museum in Italy, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed the two companies were in talks.“There is the potential of a technical partnership with Hyundai,” he said to reporters. “Let’s see if we find a deal to develop transmissions and hydrogen.”Hyundai already supplies Fiat with some components and transmissions for the North American market, Marchionne added.

Hyundai at CES 2018: Hydrogen and Artificial Intelligence for the NEXO .
The automobile is entering an important period of changes. As proof, at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Hyundai is displaying a vehicle boasting three solutions that all have a chance to become reality within the next few years. That vehicle is called NEXO. First of all, a …First of all, a technology that should still need some time before becoming widely available in Canada, fuel cells. Hyundai, who already showed off the Tucson FCEV in various auto shows and set up a pilot project in British Columbia, has announced that it has enhanced this technology. In the NEXO, the powertrain is smaller than the one in the Tucson.
