Alex Roy’s Daily Reading 4.27.16: SAE, Fisker, BMW, Daimler, Sharing, Volvo Autonomy

27 Apr

Alex Roy SAE Conference

I spoke at the SAE World Congress and all I got was this low-rez image. From a friend. Who needs a better smartphone. Still waiting on video.

Crash tests for autonomous cars are going to be way weirder than we think.

BMW really wants Mini owners to rent out their cars? Unlike Daimler, which both owns and fills its own pipeline, otherwise known as Car2Go.

Volvo autonomous car engineer calls Tesla’s Autopilot a ‘wannabe’. I can’t wait to find out. Soon.

Mercedes is going to offer on-demand driverless limos. Allegedly. I’m sure they will, but it’s far off.

Fisker is coming back as Karma. The Karma is coming back as the Revero. Too bad about that cramped interior.
