Ontario Announces $80 Million For Autonomous Driving Research

  Ontario Announces $80 Million For Autonomous Driving Research Image courtesy Trending Stratford on Twitter Ontario will reportedly announce today $80 million in funding for autonomous vehicle research, which will be distributed to projects located throughout the province. According to information reported by the Stratford Beacon Herald received from an unnamed source in advance of the government's official announcement this afternoon, the biggest chunk of money will go to that southern Ontario city to build on its status as a self-driving vehicle demonstration hub. Other southern Ontario centres set to benefit include London and Windsor, which will split $5 million, while Kitchener-Waterloo, already known as a tech-intensive municipality, will receive $5 million of its own. Oshawa's University of Ontario Institute of Technology, McMaster University in Hamilton and the University of Ottawa will each also get allocations of $5 million. Each of the pots of money is intended to turn those cities and institutions into regional innovation centres that will develop technology for autonomous and connected vehicles, which will be tested in Stratford. Testing will take place at a facility built earlier this year by a company called Renesas Electronics America. It's located a little more than a kilometre to the southeast of the city's downtown.

This partnership will incorporate Aurora's self-driving technology into Hyundai vehicles starting with models custom-developed and launched in test programs and pilot cities. Level 4 autonomous vehicles defined by SAE can operate without human input or oversight under select conditions.

This partnership will incorporate Aurora’s self-driving technology into Hyundai vehicles starting with models custom-developed and launched in test programs and pilot cities.

Over the longer term, Hyundai and Aurora will work to commercialize self-driving vehicles worldwide.

To start, the partnership will focus on the ongoing development of hardware and software for automated and autonomous driving and the back-end data services required for Level 4 automation.

Hyundai to unveil next-gen FCEV at CES

  Hyundai to unveil next-gen FCEV at CES Debut coincides with partnership with autonomous technology firm AuroraThe yet-unnamed crossover will move up from the current Tucson FCEV (Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle), but it is not yet known if Hyundai will keep the name or create something similar to Ioniq, to designate a vehicle that stands alone from the rest of the Hyundai stable.

Level 4 autonomous vehicles defined by SAE can operate without human input or oversight under select conditions. The goal of the partnership is to deploy autonomous driving quickly, broadly and safely.

Hyundai’s latest new-generation fuel-cell vehicle, which made its official global debut at CES 2018 this week, will become the first model to be utilized in the test processes starting this year.

The fuel-cell powertrain will offer an ideal platform to implement autonomous driving technologies, which requires a massive amount of power to support the large amount of data communication as well as the operation of hardware such as sensors.

Hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicle will be able to provide a stable electric power supply without concerns about driving range.

Could Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles become Viable?

  Could Hydrogen-Powered Vehicles become Viable? <p>Plenty of media attention is paid to all-electric and hybrid vehicles, but not to hydrogen-powered fuel-cell cars.</p>That is about to change, as hydrogen-powered cars could become a viable alternative to the internal combustion engine within the next decade.
