When drivers disappear altogether, the drones will need a developed brain to meet the expectations of people in terms of adequacy and responsiveness. The basis for such systems laid right now. (The photo salon concept Volvo 360c.)

Large corporations are intensively developing the assistant driver and the autopilot, but the Swedes believe that they are able to gain the lead. In proof of the world brought on-Board supercomputer Zeus (“Zeus”). It satisfies the requirements of autonomy of the fourth level and is clearly able to evolve to the fifth. It is the brainchild of the newly established company Veoneer, subsidiary of global giant Autoliv. Helped her in this project, “drone” SP Zenuity (partners Veoneer and Volvo Cars), as well as the electronic giant Nvidia.

The company Veoneer reports that the new supercomputer to cope with the processing of data from the 27 sensors of various types (primarily cameras and radars). The project will grow.

In this project, the company Veoneer developed the basic hardware and basic software based on the architecture of Nvidia Drive AGX Xavier and operating system Nvidia Drive. A joint venture Zenuity has created specialized software for Autonomous driving and will continue to be responsible for the integration of Zeus in specific models of cars.

In Volvo believe that Autonomous shuttles, such as 360c, will be able in the future to displace the aircraft designed for short flights.

In parallel, the firm Volvo announced the deepening of cooperation with Nvidia. The Swedes explained: the specialized “brain” artificial intelligence and chips from Nvidia will appear in the beginning of the next decade on production models based on the platform Scalable Product Architecture 2 (SPA 2). So, talking about the heirs of the current 90-th and 60-thseries.

The figure shows the chassis of the sedan S60 T8 Plug-in Hybrid. SPA 2 will develop the advantages of the current platform SPA, increasing the areas of electrification, Network connectivity and autonomy.

Note that the various processors from Nvidia because of their outstanding performance (tens of trillions of operations per second) are increasingly being used in the “brains” of drones. You may recall the mid in the racing offline Robocar, specialized units ProAI ZF and Audi zFAS, drones in the joint project of firms Bosch and Daimler and experienced Autonomous sedan of Lifan. And this is just recent examples.

audi r8 plus competition

Audi r8,Audi r8 plus competition. Все образцы будут окрашены в цвет Suzuka Gray. По краям бампера — антикрылышки (канарды), подсмотренные у гоночных версий. В остальном оформление носа — обычное, только добавлен «чёрный» дизайн-пакет: глянцевые окантовки решётки радиатора, воздухозаборников спереди и вентиляционных окон сзади.

All samples will be painted in the color Suzuka Gray. The edges of the bumper — anticrisis (kenardy), all borrowed from the racing versions. Otherwise, registration of the nose is common, only added the “black” design pack: glossy edging of the grille, air intakes, front and rear ventilation Windows.

In November ten Americans will be able to buy limited edition Audi R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition package. This is the coupe edition based on the R8 V10 plus especially for US. The car received a complete package of performance parts from Audi Sport. Version Competition not more powerful “plus”, but has more downforce and a little bit easier.

Version Competition by default put black racing seats-buckets with red stitching, full leather trim including door cards, steering wheel in Alcantara with the zero mark, 550-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system with 13 speakers, shift paddles of carbon fiber.

Aerodynamics and should, first of all to give this version more speed on circular tracks with a large number of turns. Only 150 km/h the downforce is there, more than double the original model (now equivalent to 52 kg), and at 315 km/h grows up to 250 kg, a hundred higher than the serial “a plus”. Payback — increased drag. Because the maximum speed there is only 315 km/h instead of 330. Acceleration is not specified, and the common V10 plus — 3,2 with up to hundreds. There are about the same.

In carbon for aerodynamic kit also includes a large splitter, expanders sills, a fixed rear wing on the pylons with the inverted fastening, flaps at the corners of the rear bumper and diffuser with developed longitudinal ribs. Tires — Pirelli P Zero.

Decoration model — matte black, fully machined 20-inch wheels, the same wheels racing version of the R8 GT4 (that, however, the diameter is 18). They saved the compartment 12 kg curb weight. Another quart engineers have dropped, putting the titanium base plate carbon fiber brake pads. Other features: dynamic steering, adjustable three parameters suspension type coilover.

The 5.2 V10 engine (610 HP and 560 N•m) has not changed. By the way, under the curtain of the life of the first generation R8 she is also a Competition specifically for US, and there was “only” 578 “horses”. However, it’s more than not just a simple “er-eighth”, but modification of the GT.

Dealers of Audi in the U.S. model R8 V10 plus Coupe Competition will be in November. Valued this car at $237 350 (at current exchange rate from 15.58 million), plus another $2550 should pay for shipping and taxes. For comparison, the serial R8 V10 plus costs in America $194 400. We will add that in the next few months the entire family awaits the Audi R8 update, which will affect the appearance (slightly) and on the technique. Atmospheric dozen should slightly improve in power, and as never before, the initial versions will be forced V6 unit 2.9. However, official information about such a radical step no.

Mercedes a,Mercedes a amg. В новой серии кадров машина предстала с минимальным камуфляжем, тогда как в прошлый раз заклеено было все, что только можно.

In a new series of machine frame appeared with minimal camouflage, while the last time was pasted over everything.

Buyers in the United States, with a particular interest in looking at new spy shots of the sedan Mercedes-AMG A 35. The fact that A 35 hatchback to the American market will not reach, but the four-door sibling will be sold. In Russia a simple sedan A-class will appear for sure, and no “heated” it will not be. So, look to the frames.

On the roof of A hatch 35 engineers hoisted a full wing, but smooth aft of the saloon to spoil the “bench” the Germans did not, limiting the spoiler, although not-so-little. This is not the case, not counting the body type of course.

Supercharged “four” M 260 with a return of 306 HP and 400 N•m, combined with a seven-step “robot” AMG SpeedShift DCT and all-wheel drive 4Matic, accelerates the hatchback A 35 to a hundred in 4.7 s. We do not think that the sedan will show a difference of at least a tenth of a second. As of piatigorski, there must be added to the amplifiers stiffness of the body, an electronically shock absorbers, AMG Ride Control, an enhanced switching of the driving modes and settings of the stabilization system.

Exhaust pipes and diffuser — same as “warmed-up” hatchback.

The front especially has nothing to hide. The same mesh in the grille, the same two horizontal straps as the hatch. But in the corners of the bumper are not set kenardy (small spoiler). It seems that in terms of aerodynamics of the sedan, A 35 would be less “evil” than similar pyatidverka.

Given the importance to the overseas market, we can assume the premiere of the sedan, A 35 or in November in Los Angeles, or in January in Detroit. In the first half of 2019, the model will arrive on the market. If someone would think it “small” will need to wait for the family of “lighters” with the index 45. There are at least preparing the hatchback A-class, the crossover GLA and liftback CLA. Sedan A-class in this version, the company also likely will be built. “Forty-five” under the hood will be installed again “two liters”, but with hybrid additions (including waiting for electric compressor), while the capacity will reach 400-410 HP
