The many faces of autonomy

The many faces of autonomy
Autonomous systems conjure up a future filled with self-driving cars, humanoid robots, and buzzing drones bearing packages from Amazon. The underlying technology continues to mature at a rapid pace, and in doing so is pulling designers in hundreds of new directions. In fact, the sheer number and variety of design options raises an interesting question: what does 'autonomy' actually mean to us? By Jim Tung, MathWorks Fellow

Head Up Displays to limit vehicular accidents in the future

Head Up Displays to limit vehicular accidents in the future
To project critical driving information onto the windshield for drivers, Denso has developed a Thin Film Transistor (TFT), liquid-crystal Head Up Display (HUD). This Human Machine Interface (HMI) is what the company claims to be the world's largest automotive head-up display with a nearly 24" projection. The product will be released in November 2017 and featured on the new 2018 Lexus LS.
