Autonomous driving describes the largely self-guided movement of vehicles. They are not controlled by a human being, but by microprocessors, which evaluate data from different sensors and cameras.
Autonomous vehicles are also known as self-driving cars. At the moment almost all major car companies are working on concepts for self-driving cars. And even tech companies like Google have entered the market. The technology, however, is still afflicted by security problems. Self-driving cars are vulnerable to attacks from hackers and remain at risk of traffic accidents caused by software errors.
Self-driving, rolling and walking devices, the Consumer Electronics Show has just kicked off in Las Vegas. The event is one of the most exciting tech events, where several firms will be looking to present trends that could define 2019.
Self-driving cars, 360-degree live broadcasts and service technicians equipped with 3D headsets - all that will be possible once data transfer takes place in real-time. And that's pretty much what the new wireless standard 5G offers. Thirty times faster than 4G LTE. Some applications are being tested at the port in Hamburg.
