Mercedes F 015 The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is held throughout Las Vegas at the beginning of every year and is one of the biggest electronics show in the world. Companies from all over the world meet to show off their latest innovations. Car companies started coming as exhibitors about a decade ago, and this year almost every major car company showed up, including Ford, Honda, Hyundai, and Mercedes. The latter company debuted several self-driving vehicles, including the F 0158 full concept car that is a myriad of futuristic technological innovations. The car is fully autonomous and is powered, in theory, by a fuel cell hybrid powertrain for up to 684 emission free miles. The interior features a lounge style cabin with swiveling front seats that automatically turn to the optimal angle for entering and exiting the vehicle. A remarkable concept to be sure, but it will take a long time to get from being technically possible to being commercially viable. We probably won’t see the F 015 anytime soon, though it's a safe bet that we will see self-driving vehicles in commercial use in the near future. Autonomous technology will change the way cars are used, from the way they are driven to the way they are integrated and used within society. 5. AV Road Trip The Alliance for Transportation Innovation or ATI announced plans early this year to have a coast to coast autonomous vehicle road trip that will begin in late January in Atlanta, Georgia. Stops on the AV tour include New Orleans, Arlington Texas, Los Angeles and San Jose California. ATI hopes to bring autonomous and other innovative technologies into the transportation industry as quickly as possible to safely and efficiently deliver goods while eliminating the human errors that cause horrific and fatal accidents across the world. 4. RideTap Developers launched a pilot for this real-time ride options app in Portland, Oregon in May of 2016. The app could offer users a list of ride options in their area, from a bus to an Uber to a bike sharing option and find them the quickest possible, or most affordable route to get the user where they need to go. The app is hoping to capitalize off of the trend of more and more young people being inclined to use public transportation or ride sharing options as opposed to owning a vehicle. 3. Robot Taxi in Paris Sea Bubbles will be flying on the Seine River in Paris, at least for test runs this spring. A yachtsman and a Swedish windsurfer came up with this bubble shaped transportation alternative that can fit four passengers and a driver. The vehicle would be an app and work much like Uber or Lyft. So far funding has been promising as the creators have been able to raise over five hundred thousand dollars from various backers, including the French government. The boats, which look like something out of Minority Report, float two feet above the water and can reach speeds of nearly twenty miles per hour. Once the company fully develops the Sea Bubble, they hope to go to other cities like London or Geneva. The propulsion system of the craft is powered by electricity, making it zero emission and soundless. If tests go well and the company that built the Sea Bubble secures more money, we could be seeing them around the world in the future. The creators hope to come up with a viable version of the Sea Bubble that is entirely operated by a robot. 2. TomTom Go TomTom has been making car navigation products for years, and their newest GPS device, which the company unveiled early this year is incredible. The TomTom Go has software that can be updated using Wi-Fi with no computer connectivity. The device can learn driver’s habits and predict their destinations. It becomes familiar with regularly driven commutes and can provide alternate routes based on traffic situations. They also integrate with smartphones by reading text messages out loud and allowing hands-free calling. 1. Pilotless Drone The EHang personal minicopter is designed to transport one human being without the use of a pilot. The passenger would choose a point on a map to travel to, and the drone would comply. All that the passenger would have to do after that is sit and wait to arrive at their destination. The vehicle was unveiled early last year at CES and caused quite a stir. While experts are unsure if the vehicle and transportation system would catch on with a price tag of at least two hundred thousand dollars, the drone was given test clearance by the state of Nevada in June.

Most of us are familiar with this situation. It’s eight o’clock in the morning, you get up later than usual, there is no time for a proper breakfast but the worst is yet to come –waiting for you outside is a bad traffic jam at the peak of the morning rush hour and no empty taxis in sight. When the anxiety attack comes in waves and your imagination runs wild with how mad your boss will be if you are late again, what could be better than to have an empty taxi stop right in front of you at this very moment? Well, if you are savvy enough to have downloaded on your smartphone Grab Taxi –a taxi booking and dispatching service app, then none of the situations above would have been anywhere near your perimeter. All you need to do is to open the app, check out the closest interested taxi drivers and then wait with ease and comfort for the taxi to come after you book a ride with two simple taps. A few years ago, an idea like this would almost seem too good to be true for white collars working in big cities. However, that’s not what Anthony Tan – the current Group CEO of Grab Taxi had in mind when he entered a business start-up competition with this vision as a student in Harvard Business School. Coming from Kuala Lumpur, Anthony knew the frustrations of getting stuck in horrible traffic jams. A risk-taking and daring social entrepreneur, he saw an opportunity in the predicament and started to materialize the idea for Grab Taxi with the funding from winning that competition in Harvard. For the next few years, this idea turned into a company, the company turned into a brand name, until now the brand name of Grab Taxi literally represents another way of life – a safer, more relaxed, worry-free and guaranteed ride to the destination of your desire. As all successful businesses grow and expand, the exuberance and vigor of Grab Taxi in Malaysia, Singapore and many other Southeast Asian countries inspired Anthony’s Thai friend back in Harvard – the co-founder and director of Grab Taxi Thailand – Ms. Juthasree Kuvinichkul to launch the initiative at home. Undoubtedly, the journey to tap into and even revamp the Thai taxi industry is not a smooth one. In the interview between the Researcher and Presenter of Broadsight magazine Mr. Valentin Fischer and Director Ms. Juthasree Kuvinichkul, there is a wealth of information on how to nurture a start-up company into a vibrant sustainable corporation. If anything, the next time you find yourself in a hurry, anxiety over finding an available taxi should be the last thing on your mind! Copyright © 2014 Broadsight - A Broadgate Initiative

A £250m taxi plant is to be built outside Coventry, creating up to 1,000 new jobs. The plans have been revealed by the owner of the London Taxi Company (LTC), which makes the iconic black cab. Chinese manufacturer Geely said the new factory would include research and development and an assembly plant to build the next generation of electric and low-emission vehicles. The first cars are expected to be made at the Ansty Park site in 2017. It is thought to be the biggest investment of its type by a Chinese company in the UK and was backed with funding from the government's Regional Growth Fund. The news comes on top of an announcement on Wednesday by Jaguar Land Rover to double the size of its base in Whitley. LTC, which was bought by Geely in 2012 in a £11.4m deal, currently makes just under 2,000 vehicles a year. It aims to increase production to about 36,000. The firm has been based in Coventry for nearly 70 years, but in January it announced plans to move from its plant in Holyhead Road to Ansty Park. Work on the new site is due to begin later this year. Mark Pawsey, Conservative MP for Rugby, said it was "good news for employment in the West Midlands". "The MTC [ Manufacturing Technology Centre] is also based in Ansty, with about 50 companies having a presence there doing research and development, so it ties in well with the LTC move," he said. "It also demonstrates a wider confidence in British manufacturing, especially with the Jaguar announcement yesterday." Peter Johansen, executive vice president for the LTC's UK operation, said the current plant, home to 240 staff, was "past its sell by date". "It's raining today and it's probably raining in the factory," he said. "You need to have modern premises these days to build modern vehicles. "We're going to embrace modern technologies, lightweight structures, very much drawn from the aircraft industry." Electric taxi Mr Johansen said the investment was expected to lead to about 500 new jobs in the supply chain and LTC was also working with local universities to develop the skills needed in the industry. Geely has previously pledged an £80m investment in the research and production of its new TX5 model, initially with a hybrid engine, but expects to launch an electric version in 2018. It follows new rules on emission levels set by Europe. Last year, London Mayor Boris Johnson announced all new taxis operating in the capital would have to be capable of zero emissions from 2018. Phil Davis, from the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, said it was important to produce a new version of the "iconic" taxi that meets the new regulations.

The SFMTA's Taxi Urban Driving Safety Program ensures, using a short training video and training requirements, that people who drive taxis in the City of San Francisco have been informed about the dangers and challenges of driving on the crowded streets of San Francisco near people walking and biking and are aware of the rules and regulations related to picking up or dropping off passengers on streets with bicycle infrastructure. The training video is available for free to anyone who would like to view it. All taxi drivers in San Francisco will be required to view the training video. This video was developed with funding from Prop K.
