Air Traffic Controllers For AVs

I was reading today about Lyft setting up their own AV unit with a more open twist – allowing automakers and tech companies to use their AV vehicles, share data, and maybe even share technologies. They are claiming that they are pursuing an open strategy as a way to bring safety benefits and environmental benefits […] more…

What is AV perception anyway?

I’ve been researching and thinking a lot about perception for autonomous these days. And I’ve been doing quite a bit of educating people on perception. Here is a long, over-due, but short, 101 on visual sensing for cars. Stop now if you’re already an expert. Autonomous vehicles logically require certain things in order to function: […] more…

I Am An Idealist

A very, very dear friend was reading through my blogs and was horrified by the content  – profanity, typos, etc. – but was particularly horrified about the one about Uber where I talk opening about the sexual harassment, sexism, and hostile workplaces I’ve sadly suffer through. This friend was so alarmed and dismayed by my […] more…

215 Is A Big Number

Where do you even begin with Uber? I think I’m going to start with the absolute absurdity of Bonderman. Please allow me to list these out because they are funny as fuck. And yes, I try and laugh more than I scream and I no longer allow this shit to make me cry. 1. Bonderman […] more…

I Love BMW

As many of my fair readers and friends know, I took a long time shopping for a lot of cars before settling in on my BMW 340i. It took me well over 4 months to consider everything from VW, Audi, Mazda, Jaguar, Volvo, Lexus, Mercedes, Maserati, and BMW. I did a ton of research, test drove […] more…

What’s The Deal With Intel?

Intel paid more for Mobileye than Fiat paid for Chrysler. That is $15 billion vs. $4.35 billion. Chrysler makes cars, trucks, SUVs, JEEPS! Mobileye at least was/is profitable. It is a lot of money. The only reason companies make such large purchases is because they are making bet on their future. Like GM’s purchase of […] more…

Raquel Won’t Help Uber

I was at Nvidia’s GPU conference last month, a truly amazing event and if you haven’t been, go. It is worth the money and all the infomercials. I was fortunate to see Raquel Urtasun speak. She was magnificent. Witty, clever, articulate, commanding, FRESH. Just was autonomous vehicles need, fresh perspectives, new insights, a new way […] more…

Auto Pilot For Everyone

Gentle readers, you know I’ve been absent.  Time has gotten the better of me and despite writing half a dozen blogs, I’ve not finished a single one.  Until now. As many of you know, I am a huge fan of autonomous technology and cannot wait for the future to arrive so, when I feel like […] more…

Why Communications Matter in Automotive Security

Hello Fine Readers – here is a blog I “wrote” this summer and forgot to post.  Yes, you can tell they had a professional writer clean up my profanity, I mean my grammar.   Security is never “one and done.” It is an ongoing process, requiring continual monitoring and updating. Aeris, as a full-stack telematics […] more…

Hey Car, I’m Talking to You

There is this idea that speaking to your car, having your car understand you, and having the car correctly do your bidding should just be. It’s assumed an “isness”, a current condition state, not just the future, but the now. May people are genuinely vexed that their vehicle is not KITT. I have never seen […] more…
