Car Wash - Fall 2016 - 17


ONLINE

e've been scouring the Internet so you don't have to. (It's quite
possible we found the end of the Internet). Check out these
highlights from our recent efforts to find what's interesting and
relevant (mostly) in the professional car wash industry!

No excuses: Google just made voting a little easier

For many Americans, the path to casting a vote is way rockier than it
should be. Next time you punch "how to vote" or "how to register" into
Google's search bar, all the tricky logistical details of your state's specific
electoral rigamarole will be spelled out in plain English.
Google collected all that data with the help of law firm Perkins Coie
and what Google calls "a fair amount of manual, painstaking work." The Google team's
slogging is likely to be worth it, though, because this is clearly information that people
want.

According to reports, Norway
will ban the sale of all fossil fuel-based cars
in the next decade, continuing its trend
toward becoming one of the most ecologically progressive countries on the planet.
Politicians from both sides of the political spectrum have reportedly reached some
concrete conclusions about 100 percent of
Norwegian cars running on green energy
by 2025.
According to  Norwegian newspaper Dagens Næringsliv, "FRP will remove
all gasoline cars," a headline that makes
reference to the populist right-wing
Framstegspartiet, or Progress Party.

Norway to 'completely ban
petrol-powered cars by 2025'

A Volvo charges near the Opera House
building in Oslo, Norway. This is the
wave of Norway's future as it plans to
ban the sale of all fossil fuel-based cars
in the next decade.

Ford's fully autonomous Fusion
Hybrid research vehicle on streets
of Dearborn, MI. Ford has been
researching autonomous vehicles for
more than a decade and currently tests
fully autonomous vehicles in Michigan,
Arizona and California, and will triple
its autonomous vehicle test fleet this year
to have the largest of any automaker.

Ford says it'll have a
fleet of fully autonomous
cars in just 5 years

More than a century after introducing
the Model T, Ford hopes to once again
change how the masses move.
The company announced that it will
have thousands of fully autonomous vehicles in urban car-sharing and ride-hailing
fleets by 2021. To achieve that goal, the
company will double, to 300, the number
of people at its Silicon Valley research center and add 60 autonomous vehicles to the
fleet of 30 already deployed there.
In July, Ford invested in Civil Maps, a
Berkeley, California, startup that makes
the software needed to turn LiDAR data
into maps robo-cars can read and automakers can update. The automaker just
invested heavily in LiDAR manufacturer
Velodyne, a bid to make the technology
far more affordable - the spinning bucket
atop each Google car costs about $85,000.
And  it  signed an exclusive licensing
deal with Nirenberg Neuroscience to use
that company's machine vision and deep
learning tech. Israeli startup SAIPS will
provide technology that helps robo-cars
identify pedestrians, garbage cans and the
like.
The big question is: Who will run
the fleet? GM has signed on with Lyft,
while Uber is doing its own research, and
Apple - which won't confirm whether it's
developing a car - invested $1 billion in
Chinese ride-sharing service Didi.
Ford doesn't have a dance partner, but it
says, "We have lots of options, and we talk
with everyone."
