iDriver + iPhone (remote controlled car)

9 May

Hey my dear readers,

Here I got really interesting theme about the future automatic driving cars, the automated cars would arrive sooner than expected, but not for the reason most people expect: advances in technology. This was not to say that the accelerating pace of technology won’t play an integral role in the creation of self-driving cars. It will. In fact, today’s news highlights the startling advances being made in the area. Researchers at Lockheed Martin and the Rochester Institute of Technology are experimenting with sophisticated algorithms which are expected to use the bevy of sensors now embedded in automobiles to help predict “future failures.” In other words, your car will soon know that it is about to fail before it actually fails.

Three years ago I watched one movie which is called “Knight Rider”, but I never thought that so rapidly our technique will grow. In that film shows the real future creation, but in reality it is coming true step by step. I recommend you to watch who didn’t yet; it is so interesting, when KITT (name of car) controls itself.

Also, I found the visiting video to Charlie Ping (the owner of the KITT). That’s right our favorite is KITT’s stunt double, a car that goes by the name KR3. Find out  by watching the video below.

I found really good information that the students from Free University in Berlin made an experiment and tried to connect the normal car with the help of the Iphone, and drive it with the remote controller. Even I didn’t believe that normal car goes without a driver, but it is already created.

It is amazing, isn’t it? Let’s take a look:

But some people are trying to cheat by showing their Faked Videos like this:

However, some people noticed it so easily. Nevertheless the other students and new generation are trying to show the real future creations and adding some their contribution into our society. And according to the iDriver, I hope, it takes about 5-10 years to have real KITT.

    Hi Eddy,

    Every time it is a pleasure to read and see your blog posts because there are these beautiful pictures of amazing cars, that make your posts so attractive for the reader. I like the fact that you give so many sources of information, which in case of interest can be easily accessed.
    In my opinion your blog post lacks of explanations. I think that before you insert your first picture of the Mustang, you need to make it clearer what you are actually talking about, just one or two sentences more. I mean it is better with the picture, but before you upload any picture you have to make sure that the readers would understand what you are trying to illustrate with it. Picture is worth 1000 words only when it is on the right place.
    Another thing that I really liked about your article was the example with the students from Free University in Berlin. I think that in a way this example contributes to the attraction of your target audience .

    Good work!

    Hey Eldiar,
    Even though i am not really interested in cars so much but your blog post made me wanna read it. First i checked the images and videos and they`re amazing ! You didnt keep your text so long but those videos ( with the fake one to compare them ) were enough to give your point.
    Its hard to imagine what they are gonna invent in a few years ,because you cant even catch the all new stuff right now.The topic you have choosen makes it more clear that how everything changes so fastly around our world.
    My advice is ; keep on searching and sharing about the future of technology (especially cars =))to make us aware what is gonna be in a few years except the things we can imagine 🙂
    Well done
    ( As i said, i wasnt that interested in new cars but after reading your blog post, i`ve searched another posts about that and found this one: “http://www.practicalenvironmentalist.com/automobiles/future-electric-cars-2012-and-beyond.htm” . Not as interesting as what you shared because it is about 2012 and something which most of people aware, but maybe you would like to take a look 🙂 )

    Excellent post, completely fascinating, and it led me to go on the web and look for iphones driving cars (more than one) and my favorite, in outer space: http://mashable.com/2010/10/17/iphone-space-launch-video/. I then looked for crazy things you could do with your iphone and found a bunch, http://iphone.appstorm.net/roundups/lifestyle-roundups/5-crazy-things-you-didnt-know-you-could-do-with-your-iphone/. And then I returned to your original question, on the automation of cars: http://www.jumpthecurve.net/index.php/recent_posts/automated_cars_part_two. While I think it is simply wonderful feedback that Dian has given you, I actually have a theory about what makes for good writing, and it has nothing to do with correcting someone’s grammar or asking them to be more clear: I think that if the topic has been defined in a sharp, expansive way, then you’ll find some terribly interesting stuff, read the articles even more closely than you already do, and one’s writing will improve because you are so terribly inspired that writing becomes a labor of love … something like that. So: faster, further, higher! Excellent work, I can’t wait to see what you’ll write about next! -Dr.B!

    hey,
    I think the topic you chose is really good. and you give us several links for further reading which it really nice. however, what I want to say is that here, you got a good beginning, but the content is not enough to support the whole article. I think it is just a brief introduction, what you need to do is to enrich it, not just add some links to us. Maybe instead of listing the links, expressing them by your own words will be better.
