Aurora and Volvo to develop Level 4 self-driving trucks

Published

on

In mid-February, it was announced that Aurora, a self-driving vehicle development company, had partnered with the world’s largest automaker, Toyota. Together with a third entrant, Japanese auto parts supplier Denso, the partners plan to develop and test vehicles with Driver self-driving technology developed by Aurora.

According to the new information, Aurora will also develop self-driving trucks of the fourth level. This work is stipulated by an agreement with Volvo. The partners intend to create fully self-driving cars that run between major cities in North America.

Aurora and Volvo said they have been looking into a potential partnership since 2018, already collaborating on the prototype of the Pistachio truck shown in the illustration. Back then, Aurora Driver technology was not yet capable of safely driving such a large and heavy vehicle. The new sensor technologies acquired by Aurora in 2019 give partners reason to believe that they are now ready to create a fleet of self-driving trucks of the fourth level. In addition to helping with vehicle manufacturing, Aurora will provide logistics and operational support using the cloud to make truck operations more efficient.

It remains to be recalled that the fourth level of self-government corresponds to fully automatic movement in certain zones or conditions. In this case, constant attention of the driver is not required. Outside these zones or conditions, the system calls on the driver for help, and if he cannot take control, then stops moving and parks the car.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex To

In the UK, there was a curious case – 41-year-old Christopher Paul Trotman used an AirTag tag from Apple to track his ex-girlfriend. He glued the device to the rear bumper of the car and for some time tracked the location of the vehicle. And then he wrote the girl a message and revealed the fact of surveillance of her. As a result, he was detained, he is now in prison awaiting trial. Most likely, after the hearings, he will be released, but he will be banned from approaching the former at the level of a court decision.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex.  To do this, he used the AirTag tag.

As noted, the victim uses an iPhone, and she received a notification that an unknown AirTag was located next to her, but the girl ignored the information because she simply did not know about such a possibility in iOS.

Note that the latest improvements to AirTag include anti-stalking features. First, iPhone users will be automatically alerted if an unknown AirTag moves near them (which it did). Secondly, the tag will make a sound if it is far from the owner for a long time.

Initially, the tags only worked with the iPhone, but later the company released Android, which allows their phone owners to search for AirTag.

We previously reported on how to properly use the AirTag to get the most out of it.
