SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - German automaker Daimler AG and auto supplier Bosch Corp [ROBSCJ.UL] will deploy self-driving taxis in California’s Silicon Valley region next year as part of a test program of vehicles designed for city driving, the two companies said on Tuesday. The world’s largest maker of premium cars and biggest automotive supplier gave few details about their robo-taxi program, described as a passenger shuttle service, and did not reveal which city would host it. Negotiations with the municipality within the sprawling technology hub of Silicon Valley were still underway, they said on a conference call with journalists.
Global automakers, suppliers and tech companies like Alphabet’s Waymo and Uber [UBER.UL] are pouring resources into the development of autonomous driving systems and launching networks of test fleets around the globe aimed at pushing the technology forward, The extremely complex challenges of self-driving, and the expense of research and development, has led to a host of partnerships between automakers, suppliers and others, Bosch and Daimler, with its passenger car brand Mercedes-Benz, first joined forces sterling polished russian azurite cufflinks in a self-driving alliance in April 2017, with teams from both companies working together in Stuttgart and Silicon Valley..
Executives from the companies would not comment on the potential size of the pilot program, nor how many vehicles would be used, nor customers served. Although California would be the first pilot site, others could follow, they said. The vehicles will include a safety driver and a steering wheel, they said. Using an app-based mobility service operated by Daimler, customers will be offered free rides on selected routes within the city during the pilot, Daimler said. The service will be built atop the artificial intelligence platform Nvidia DRIVE Pegasus, supplied by chipmaker Nvidia, the companies said.
Bosch is currently developing its own electronic sterling polished russian azurite cufflinks control unit, the main computer ‘brain’ that controls functions within a self-driving car, that will use Nvidia’s hardware chips and base software technology, Until then, it will rely on existing technology from Nvidia, like its Pegasus platform, said Michael Fausten, Bosch’s head of urban autonomous driving, Under the deal, Daimler will supply the vehicles and test facilities, while Bosch will provide the many sensors, actuators and control units used in the development process..
Daimler’s head of autonomous driving, Uwe Keller, said Mercedes S- and B-class vehicles would be used in development but the vehicle to be used during the pilot had not yet been chosen. Daimler and Bosch said the pilot will help provide information about how self-driving vehicles can be integrated into a complex transport network offering multiple choices. Considered by many to be out ahead in the race to autonomy, Waymo is due to launch its fully driverless, autonomous car hailing service in the Phoenix, Arizona, area soon following a public trial.
SEATTLE (Reuters) - Boeing Co’s (BA.N) first-half sterling polished russian azurite cufflinks aircraft deliveries rose more than 7 percent, lifted by demand for its bestselling 737 jetliners as airlines seek more fuel-efficient planes, and orders were more than double those of European rival Airbus SE (AIR.PA), The announcement on Tuesday caps a successful half year for the world’s largest planemaker and comes a week ahead of the Farnborough Airshow in Britain, where airlines typically place orders, Chicago-based Boeing had 460 net aircraft orders in the first half of 2018, compared with Airbus’s 206, rebounding after losing that race to Airbus last year..
Deliveries are financially important to planemakers because that’s when airlines pay over most of the money, while orders give a better glimpse of planemakers’ prospects. Boeing said its in-house financing arm, Boeing Capital Corp, acquired 75 single-aisle 737s for an unnamed buyer, indicating Boeing had to help arrange financing to close the deal. Such deals do not typically stay on Boeing’s balance sheet but would be sold on to other lessors. Boeing declined to name the underlying customer involved.
Boeing has said it aims to ship between 810 and 815 commercial aircraft in 2018, as much as 6.8 percent more than the industry record sterling polished russian azurite cufflinks 763 jets it delivered in 2017, putting it ahead of Airbus for the sixth year in a row, Airbus forecasts delivering around 800 planes in general for 2018, Airbus scored a key victory on Tuesday, with U.S, airline JetBlue (JBLU.O) announcing it would buy 60 of its A220-300 narrowbody jets, the first major order for the planemaker’s newly rebranded program as its battle with rival Boeing Co intensifies..
