Self-driving taxis hit the streets in Singapore

Posted by Anup Baral August 31, 2016 : With the launch of nuTonomy self-driving taxis, Singapore joins a number of cities around the world testing autonomous vehicles. Auto industry across the world has changed a lot in the last five years. If you carefully observe it, there is a significant shift in the business, from machinery, to design or the technological level. And in this change, there is a significant role of autonomous cars. Industry observers are seeing how in the last few months everyone is making their moves. And as industry players, Google and Tesla have contributed enormously in this change as the self-driving cars were developed by these two companies first.
Automobile company, Ford, has made some announcements recently about accelerating on-road testing of sensors and software. On the other hand, General Motors has recently bought a San Francisco-based developer, Cruise Automation, for autonomous vehicle technology. For a long time, industry players not knowing of how they can work with each other have been circling each other. Amid this, new players like Apple and Uber are also entering in the market. Some other companies like Zoox are building their own cars from the scratch.
