The Consumer Electronics Show used to be the place to go to see the latest and greatest television sets, but in recent years it has essentially become a car show. And this year it was a self-driving car show.
I myself have never been, but my Udacity colleagues at CES this year report that the entire show is a tribute to self-driving cars.
Intel demoed its first self-driving car, together with its subsidiary, Mobileye.
Renesas apparently rented out a parking lot and demoed their car.
Doogie Howser, MD, was blown away by his Aptiv-nuTonomy-Lyft self-driving car ride:
And of course Udacity announced a partnership with Baidu to build a free course teaching engineers around the world how to use Baidu’s open-source Apollo software for self-driving cars.
Big week for self-driving cars!
