Intel, Volkswagen And Mobileye To Launch Self-Driving Taxi Service

Volkswagen
The fleet of electric commercial self-driving taxis will arrive in 2019 as Volkswagen, Intel and Mobileye join forces to be first to market.

Self-driving cars have been on the cards for a few years now but there has been a lot of talk and not much sign of a real-world solution. This will change in 2019 when Intel, Volkswagen and Mobileye join forces to implement a fleet of self-driving taxis in Israel.

This is one of the first practical examples of Level 4 commercial MaaS – with level 4 describing the type of AI involved (by the Society of Automotive Engineers) as having no human driver with certain parameters, and MaaS ‘being Mobility as a Service’ which is just a fancy way to say selling transport.

Volkswagen will be supplying the cars while Mobileye will be looking after the self-driving technology that will power the cars, which are all reliant on the chips supplied by Intel.

It’s important to note that this collaboration between these entities is non-exclusive which allows each company to pursue different initiatives. This is an interesting nugget of information, and almost certainly insisted upon by Intel as its chips are reported to be the furthest along in this technology so they wouldn’t want to be tied down to a single deal.

Intel’s partnership with BMW, Mobileeye and Fiat Chrysler which is seeking to bring self-driving technology to production vehicles is still very much in place and is targeting a different section of the self-driving market.

Intel is doing its best to place itself very firmly at the centre of the self-driving movement which could be incredibly lucrative in the years to come.

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
