AutoComplete: Here's your first look at Roborace's autonomous development prototypeDelphi and Mobileye want self-driving cars by 2019, and Silicon Valley startups head to Michigan's Mcity.
Today's Tuesday, the 23 of August and here's what's making news on Road Show. We've just gotten a glimpse of what the first self driving racecar might look like. The Devbot is the prototype car for the coming Roborace Series. But it has one feature that won't make it to the final spec, a cockpit. Teams will just use that for now to ride along to see how their development is going Another powerhouse team in self driving Delphi and Mobileye have gotten together and they built a self driving kit if you will for auto makers to use in manufacturing their own autonomous cars. Now Delphi is a heavy hitter in the auto components bid. And Mobileye is known for its computer vision and machine learning and we'll see a prototype of their work at CES in January. And three Silicon Valley start ups are going the other direction, heading east, Zendrive, PolySync, and Civil Maps have all recently moved Teams to the University of Michigan's MCity, self driving test facility, to leverage both it and the autonomous know how at Michigan. And maybe pinch a few hires. For more on these stories head over to the roadshow.com. We'll talk to you tomorrow.
