This is how much American drivers use their phone in the car

TwitterFacebook

We just can’t stay away from our phones, even in the car. 

The drive safety app Drivemode looked at driving data from 2.7 million U.S. drivers using Android phones between Jan. 2018 and April 30, 2019 and found that over 167 million miles and 13.3 million hours, Americans use their phone for a better part of an hour in the car on average.

Keep in mind, only drivers who had the Drivemode app on their phones were tracked, so these are already fairly connected users who are probably more…

Waymo’s autonomous cars will drive outside the US for the first time

TwitterFacebook

Waymo’s self-driving cars are moving beyond the sunny skies of Phoenix and across the world — specifically, to France and Japan.

On Thursday, the Google spin-off autonomous car company announced a partnership with Renault and Nissan. They’ll be looking into driverless rides for passengers and deliveries in those two countries and eventually beyond. Testing in France and Japan, where Renault and Nissan are, respectively, based, will kick off the partnership. This eventually could lead to…

All the data self-driving cars take in from cameras looks like this

TwitterFacebook

Self-driving cars are almost too observant, taking in information from light-emitting LiDAR sensors, radar equipment, microphones, and cameras. But all the information a car gleans from the outside world still has to be wrangled to be useful. 

Cruise’s fleet of self-driving cars testing in San Francisco take in petabytes of data each month from its sensor suite on the road and in simulation, similar to other configurations other self-driving car companies have on autonomous vehicles. A…
