Computer simulation creates "thousands of variations" of driving patterns, enabling Google's engineers to quickly test tweaks across millions of virtual miles.
The younger generation no longer feels as strong a need to be behind the wheel -- and phones have stolen some of cars' cachet.
Autonomous vehicles aren't yet ready to hit the mainstream, the company's stats reveal.
The heart of the world's autonomous and connected car research isn't in Silicon Valley, it's at a University of Michigan research facility. Roadshow's new video series, 'Driving Detroit,' kicks off with an in-depth look at this groundbreaking future mobility cityscape.
Automotive chipmaker Renesas gives CNET a look into how sensor data comes together as a crucial step in the development of self-driving cars.
Ford CEO Mark Fields takes the stage at CES 2016 and announces Ford's plans to build the largest autonomous car fleet in the world, moving from research to full engineering development.
At CES 2016, Nvidia announced the Drive PX 2, a computer for self-driving cars. It's the size of a lunchbox and as powerful as 150 MacBook Pro laptops.
With no shortage of automakers working on robo-cars, and with Uber already a "sensor platform on wheels," we're well on the way, says MIT vet Kevin Ashton.
Next won't have a working prototype until at least 2020, but its autonomous car concept is fun to consider. It's hoping to create transparent boxes on wheels that could couple and uncouple from each other as it travels through town.
Ashley discusses an out-of-the-box idea for a futuristic autonomous car, a kiosk that paints pictures on your nails in a snap and Tesla's plan to curb irresponsible drivers abusing its autopilot feature.
