By J.M. de Gennaro, The Irish IndependentA new trend of self-driving cars has emerged, with some experts speculating the technology could be more widely adopted than the likes of Google’s self-drive car or Uber’s self drive.
Transworld Systems, a company that designs autonomous vehicle systems, has unveiled a new, fully autonomous prototype that it says will be able to navigate “any given highway or cityscape” at “near-zero to 60 km/h (30 to 50 mph).”
The vehicle is a concept vehicle built on an “infinitely scalable platform,” the company said in a statement.
“We are working on the development of a fully autonomous vehicle, a system that can operate in a city, a country, a regional or international landscape, and even in its own backyard,” the statement said.
It is not clear whether Transworld Systems will be building the vehicle itself or selling it to other companies, and its technology is not available yet for public scrutiny.
In October, a driverless car, dubbed Transworld Car, was involved in a collision with a semi in London.
In the aftermath of the accident, Transworld said the accident had been caused by human error.
TransWorld is based in California and its chief executive, Matt Gaudette, is an entrepreneur who also happens to be the son of a retired Los Angeles police officer.
Transworld, based in New York, is one of several companies hoping to commercialize driverless cars in the United States.
While the concept vehicle is currently in the testing phase, the company says its technology could soon be deployed on public roads.
The new self-driven vehicle, called Transworld Transworld System, is a fully automated vehicle.
TransWorld Systems/YouTubeTransworld is based on a “universal software platform” and will soon be available for use on roads, TransWorld CEO Matt Gaudi said in the statement.
It is expected to have a range of 200 miles (320 kilometers), he said.
TransRoad, which operates in the US, has been using a similar technology for its autonomous driving cars, known as TransRoad2.
Transroad2 has been in testing for more than two years and is expected for a test ride on a California freeway later this year.
In January, a California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) official said that the agency was considering adding the technology to its autonomous vehicles.
The Transworld vehicle is an early proof-of-concept that TransRoad is also working on.
TransRoad says it is aiming to get its prototype on the road by the end of 2018.
Transroads is developing the technology for use in autonomous vehicles in the UK, according to its website.
It aims to provide the vehicle with all the features of a conventional car and then improve on them with its autonomous software.
“This allows us to build on the foundation of the Transworld software and the vehicles already on the roads, but also to further optimise their driving,” the TransRoad website says.
“TransRoad2 will be designed to be a fully driverless vehicle with an integrated driver assistance system and will allow drivers to operate the vehicle without human intervention.
The TransRoad system will allow for a range from zero to 60km/h or 30 to 50mph (80 to 100km/hr) and will offer driver assistance via remote control of the vehicle.”
TransRoads CEO, James Gaudet, said the vehicle’s technology could “help to dramatically reduce accidents” and save lives.
Trans road system is a new technology, it will be fully tested on a road and will have the benefits of the technology of a traditional car, James says.
Transroids is a company based in Germany that is developing autonomous driving systems.
It has been testing its vehicles on public roadways since 2012.
A spokeswoman for Transroids said the company does not comment on future products.
