Anyone who’s ever driven through a densely packed city center knows how difficult it can be to find parking. Fortunately there’s no shortage of technological innovators working on the problem. Now one such Israeli startup has been acquired by an even bigger one from overseas.
A dozen automakers operate R&D or “innovation offices” in Israel. Toyota, somewhat surprisingly, isn’t among them. But that doesn’t mean it’s ignoring what the Silicon Wadi has to offer.
Machines are listening to what we have to say. And that includes our cars. The trouble is that cars can be noisy when they’re in motion. But at least one Israeli company is working on that problem, and it’s won the support of Korea’s largest automaker.
Whether you’re aware of it or not, your car is generating data. The question is what the vehicle is able to do with all of that information. And one more automaker has partnered with a leading Israeli firm to get the most out of it.
Developing a new car from scratch is no simple matter – nor is it a cheap one, by any means. And it’s not one that has often been undertaken in Israel. But there’s one company doing exactly that, with a creative spin, and the inherently expensive endeavor has just won […]
Israel has emerged as a global powerhouse in the developing field of smart transportation. Its leaders, however, still drive (or are driven in) conventional automobiles with old-school internal-combustion engines. But that’s going to change soon.
There aren’t a lot of automakers producing hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles. Only three, in the US market at least. And one of them has turned to Israeli tech to help it get an edge over the other two.
Modern automobiles have dozens of sensors on board. And that number is only growing as cars get more and more complex. But one company in Israel isn’t adding sensors – it’s using them in a whole new way. And Porsche, for one, has taken note.
Navigation apps like Waze and Google Maps have made us smarter, better-informed, more efficient drivers. But they’ll only take you so far: when it comes to parking, you’re on your own. That’s where ParKam comes in, and you can read more about it at Car and Driver, as reported by […]
If we want our cars to handle the driving for us, they’re going to have to not only follow programming, but “think” for themselves. Toyota and BMW know that at least as well as any other automakers in the business. Which is why they’ve invested in Cartica AI.
