A new report from Airports Council International (ACI) World examines a number of concerns related to the rise of autonomous vehicle technology at airports. The report, developed jointly with consultancy Arup, considers how airports, designers and other members of the aviation community can introduce autonomous vehicle technologies in a more informed way when it comes to their potential security impacts.
In an interview with Automotive News Europe, Danny Shapiro, Senior Director of Automotive at Nvidia, discusses the challenges facing self-driving vehicle developers, with the industry increasingly realising that delivering fully autonomous vehicles is "a really hard problem to solve". Shapiro believes the focus will increasingly be on specific kinds of deployments, such as robot taxis or shuttles on fixed routes, and on the movement of goods rather than people.
Motorists in the United Arab Emirates may one day need a separate driving licence to be able to operate autonomous vehicles, to allow them to be tested for a different set of skills, according to the Khaleej Times. The suggestion came shortly after the Emirates News Agency reported that the UAE is preparing to become the first country in the world to have regulations on autonomous vehicles.
