TNB takes a look into the CAM future of commercial vehicles

27 February 2020 – The world of Connected Autonomous Mobility has huge potential for the commercial vehicle, freight and logistics, and public transport sectors. But just how does the development of CAM technologies in the UK compare to that of other countries, and how will our roads change in the next decade or so? This week TNB caught up with Dr Richard Porter, Technology and Innovation Director at Zenzic – the organisation at the forefront of the UK’s drive to a CAM future – and asked for his thoughts on the subject.

AI Self-Driving Cars Need To Cope With Human Drivers On The Roadways, Including Drivers With Dementia

31 January 2020 – Do you know someone that seems to be progressively forgetting things and their mind cannot remain focused on matters at-hand? Typically, regrettably, as we get older, humans tend to genuinely have a kind of mental decay and their brains sadly begin to deteriorate. There are an estimated 5 million people in the United States that are currently experiencing dementia. Keep in mind that dementia is not a disease per se, though some assume it is, and instead it is considered an umbrella term that encompasses the loss of our thinking skills and also the degradation of various memory processing aspects.

24 January 2020 – Constraints. They are everywhere. Seems like whichever direction you want to move or proceed, there is some constraint either blocking your way or at least impeding your progress. Per Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s famous 1762 book entitled “The Social Contract,” he proclaimed that mankind is born free and yet everywhere mankind is in chains. Though it might seem gloomy to have constraints, I’d dare say that we probably all welcome the aspect that arbitrarily deciding to murder someone is pretty much a societal constraint that inhibits such behavior.
