New York City-based ACE Training Institute has created the first driverless car, which it calls the “Autonomous Eel.”
This is a “self-driving vehicle that has been engineered to be fully autonomous.”
ACE says the car will travel on a “path of least resistance,” and can be used for commercial and commercial-type tasks such as grocery shopping.
The company is currently working on an automated driverless shuttle system, but says it will “soon” launch a full autonomous system.
ACE Training is the parent company of several other companies, including Cruise Automation, which was acquired by General Motors.
ACE’s CEO, Mike O’Leary, said the company hopes to launch its first driverLESS car in the second quarter of 2021.
ACE also said that it plans to develop a fleet of autonomous cars for public transit in the future.
ACE is also working on a self-driving drone.
ACE said it will start working with “a number of companies” on a car for use in the public transit market.
The Eel is one of several companies that have taken part in a DARPA program to develop autonomous vehicles.
DARPA’s autonomous vehicle program began in 2008 and is led by DARPA Director Robert Litt, with funding from the U.S. Department of Defense.
The program has been scaled back somewhat since DARPA stopped funding it in 2016.
DARP’s program is now in its 10th year.
The DARPA team aims to develop technologies that will allow “robots to operate without human oversight.”
The agency said that the goal of autonomous vehicle development is to “enable autonomous vehicles to operate on the roads of the future, while remaining safe and secure.”
The goal is to have “robotic systems that are self-aware, that are able to self-deploy in an environment that is not inherently dangerous, but that still has some safety and human oversight,” according to DARPA.
“Robots have an important role to play in the development of advanced self-protective technologies for autonomous vehicles,” DARPA stated.
The idea of driverless vehicles is that they would be more autonomous than humans, since they wouldn’t be able to read their surroundings.
It’s also possible that the autonomous vehicles will become more common in the next decade.
DARPS plans to start a “road safety and security assessment” in 2020.
“DARPA will conduct a road safety and safety assessment in 2020,” DARPS said in a statement.
“The assessment will evaluate the feasibility of using automated driving to improve road safety in the U of T.”
DARPA is also seeking feedback from industry on how it can “address safety and usability issues” in self-driven cars.
It also said the “road and transportation safety assessment will examine the impact of autonomous vehicles on safety and efficiency, including whether they could reduce the amount of time a driver spends on the road, the amount a driver must spend on maintenance, and the cost of the road.”
“The program will examine potential safety and effectiveness challenges associated with autonomous vehicles in areas such as traffic, vehicle and pedestrian safety, and road, bridge, and transit safety,” DARPs statement said.
The U of Toronto’s Automotive Research Institute (ARMI) said it has seen “significant progress” in driverless technology.
ARMI’s chief technology officer, David Ragan, told The Toronto Star that the industry is moving towards autonomous cars “because it’s a faster, easier way to go, it’s cheaper to make and there are more companies that are working on it.”
The Toronto company is working on “a fleet of automated driver-less vehicles,” but has not released a timeline for when it might begin mass production.
ARI is a partnership between Ford, Toyota, Nissan, BMW and Tesla, and has partnerships with a number of automakers, including General Motors, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Volvo and DaimlerChrysler.
