In a few Australian suburbs, a cup of coffee or toothpaste can now arrive via the air. But that doesn’t mean drones are going to be widespread – for now.
International and Australian laws need to be updated to cope with the newest drug-trafficking technique threatening maritime security: remote-controlled narco-drones.
Consumers are still unsure whether fully-autonomous vehicles are safe and worth buying. Brands play an important role in influencing their decision.
Where it’s risky for aid workers to be on the ground, technology could help.
Studies show that when people can ride in a car without having to operate it, they increase their car use. That could increase traffic and pollution, unless government puts a price on car travel.
Drone delivery company Wing is out to transform the sky – and Australia is at the forefront of its plans.
An autonomous vehicle expert explains how Tesla’s Autopilot works, what prompted US authorities to investigate the system and what changes might be in store for the company.
The promise of self-driving cars hasn’t materialized, and we’re no closer to them becoming a reality.
Autonomous vehicles could one day transform urban transport and make roads safer, but some obstacles need to be overcome first.
The public holds self-driving cars to incredibly high safety standards – and we’re working to meet them.
Tesla has a lot more going for it than just its electric cars. VW must think wider and bolder to save the business.
As self-driving cars increase in popularity, the question of legal liability remains. The driver, automobile manufacturer and software designers all have a role to play.
The age of autonomous vehicles is edging closer to reality with the launch of a driverless taxi service in the USA.
Despite what Elon Musk says, there are numerous challenges to overcome in creating completely self-driving cars that work in the real world.
In order to create an efficient future transportation system, autonomous vehicles need to accommodate people with different mobility needs.
Driverless cars create an opportunity for more inclusive design – so why aren’t more companies using it?
Pedestrians are wary of autonomous cars, but they trust traffic lights. Researchers suggest driverless cars could communicate directly with the signals to make their own actions more predictable.
Driverless vehicles rely heavily on sensors to navigate the world. They’re vulnerable to attack if bad actors trick them into ‘seeing’ things that aren’t there, potentially leading to deadly crashes.
Over US$33 billion was invested in mobility tech last year in response to claims it will transform our lives. Based on what we have seen so far, which of these promised solutions will be delivered?
Technological change has always destroyed jobs. But now automation and artificial intelligence are drying up the options for those displaced.
