NY a strong partner for Cruise Automation

Many auto and tech companies have cited 2020 as a date for deploying the technologies. The vehicle will join Cruise's testing fleets in San Francisco, metropolitan Phoenix and Detroit.

General Motors is planning to test self-driving cars in the streets of New York City early next year.

"New York is the ultimate proving ground for autonomous vehicle technology", Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer said Tuesday, in a press release.

Qualcomm Fits Its Briefcase Sized 5G Modem Into A Phone
Also today, to aid in the development of 5G mobiles Qualcomm unveiled the first 5G smartphone reference design. It also supports Assertive Display , so we can expect better visibility in improper lighting conditions.


The law that allows testing of self-driving cars in NY lapses on April 1st, 2018 so these tests have to been conducted by then. "This partnership with General Motors and Cruise Automation is an exciting step into that future". GM and Cruise now have a registered fleet of 100 autonomous Bolts, according to GM spokesman Patrick Sullivan. "We test in San Francisco only because we have to". Cruise is aiming to test in a five-square-mile section of lower Manhattan, the WSJ reported. They'll have an engineer behind the wheel to monitor performance. Cruise will also have to open an office in New York City and hire employees for a new team.

Las Vegas has tested an autonomous shuttle.

The cars will be programmed to navigate obstacles such as aggressive drivers, construction barriers and bad weather. In addition to the legislation, the new Department of Motor Vehicles application process is another step forward in making ny the epicenter of cutting-edge technology and innovation.

Wheaton also said NY is the kind of place that could see the first applications of autonomous shuttles or shared vehicle fleets because of its dense population.
