'A fascinating hybrid. Part freewheeling history of the rise of the modern autonomous vehicle, part intimate memoir from an insider who was on the front lines for much of that history, Autonomy will more than bring readers up to speed on one of today's most closely watched technologies' Brian Merchant, author of The One Device From the ultimate insider - a former General Motors executive and current advisor to the Google Self-Driving Car project - comes the definitive story of the race between Google, Tesla and Uber to create the driverless car. We stand on the brink of a technological revolution. In the near future, most of us will not own automobiles, but will travel instead in driverless electric vehicles summoned at the touch of an app. We will be liberated from driving, so that the time we spend in cars can be put to more productive use. We will prevent more than 90 percent of car crashes, provide freedom of mobility to the elderly and disabled and decrease our dependence on fossil fuels. Autonomy tells the story of the maverick engineers and computer experts who triggered the revolution. Lawrence Burns - long-time adviser to the Google self-driving car project (now Waymo) and former corporate vice president of research, development and planning at General Motors - provides the perfectly timed history of how we arrived at this point, in a character-driven and vivid account of the unlikely thinkers who accomplished what billion-dollar automakers never dared. Beginning at a 2004 off-road robot race across the Mojave Desert with a million-dollar purse and continuing up to the current stampede to develop driverless technology, Autonomy is a page-turning chronicle of the past, a diagnosis of the present and a prediction of the future - the ultimate guide to understanding the driverless car and to navigating the revolution it has sparked.

Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics and Modeling Bruce P. Minaker, University of Windsor, Canada An introduction to vehicle dynamics and the fundamentals of mathematical modeling Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics and Modeling is a student-focused textbook providing an introduction to vehicle dynamics, and covers the fundamentals of vehicle model development. It illustrates the process for construction of a mathematical model through the application of the equations of motion. The text describes techniques for solution of the model, and discusses the implications of the choice of method. It demonstrates how to conduct an analysis and interpret the results, and provides a foundation for understanding and predicting vehicle behaviour as a consequence of the design parameters. The book introduces the concept of multibody dynamics as applied to vehicles and provides insight into how vehicle dynamics concepts and tools are used in the automotive industry. Modeling the pneumatic tire is also covered, along with methods for solving the suspension kinematics problem, and prediction of acceleration and braking performance. A significant portion of the book is devoted to the classical linear dynamic models, and it includes the development of a method suitable for computer implementation, which can automatically generate and solve the linear equations of motion for large complex models. Key features: * Accompanied by a website hosting MATLAB(R) code. * Supported by the Global Education Delivery channels. Fundamentals of Vehicle Dynamics and Modeling is an ideal textbook for senior undergraduate and graduate courses on vehicle dynamics.
