Three Things You May Have Missed: GM Moves Quickly, Safely to Lead in Future of Personal Mobility

Blog

Over the last several years, General Motors has made considerable progress towards realizing our vision of a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. Those efforts were advanced recently with three key announcements over a brief, seven-day period:

Autonomous Vehicles at a Crossroads

Multimedia with summary

The transportation sector is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. There are vast resources currently being spent to transform it into something more efficient, greener, and safer. Many think that the technology behind autonomous, self-driving vehicles, will be a key piece to how we get around in the not-so-distant future. Looking at the size of the companies diving into the autonomous automobile space, from Google and Apple to Über and General Motors, it seems these self-driving vehicles are coming whether we like the idea of it or not.

Cruising Toward a Zero, Zero, Zero Future

Last week, General Motors announced that it will begin making a production version of the self-driving Cruise AV at its Orion Township assembly plant in Michigan, while roof modules for the vehicles will be assembled at the Brownstone battery plant. The automaker will invest more than $100 million to upgrade both facilities, bringing the company a step closer to its vision for future mobility.

Autonomous Cars Poised to Transform, Connect Smart Communities

Article

A future where driverless cars are roaming city streets may be closer than you think. Quickly moving past test and pilot phases, autonomous vehicles are now hitting the road in business parks and on limited fixed routes, bringing the promise of increased safety, reduced emissions and the potential for streamlined public transportation.

Data as the New Infrastructure

Data plays foundational role in enabling smart cities
Article

For decades, the definition of “infrastructure” has remained unchanged and was used to define roads, bridges, electricity and water delivery systems, among other examples. But as cities continue to build upon smart city efforts, the concept and very definition of infrastructure is changing.

ANN ARBOR—The added weight, electricity demand and aerodynamic drag of the sensors and computers used in autonomous vehicles are significant contributors to their lifetime energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study.

However, when savings from the driving efficiencies associated with self-driving vehicles are factored into the equation, the net result is a reduction in lifetime energy use and associated greenhouse gas emissions of up to 9 percent compared to the conventional vehicles examined in the University of Michigan-led study.

Learn How General Motors is Putting Safety at the Core of Autonomous Vehicle Development

Imagine a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion. General Motors’ self-driving vehicle technology aims at making zero a reality. The fourth-generation Cruise AV is the first production-ready vehicle built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver, steering wheel, pedals or manual controls.

Black & Veatch: Data Analytics Is the Foundation of Tomorrow’s Smart Cities

New Strategic Directions Report reflects rising role of Big Data across infrastructure systems
Press Release

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., January 16, 2018 /3BL Media/ - Big Data’s potential to improve community quality of life while making critical human infrastructure more efficient and sustainable is overcoming lingering fears about the costs of smart city solutions.
