BlackBerry and Amazon Web Services partner on IVY tech for your car

Get in, loser, we’re doing Big Data.


BlackBerry

It’s tough to get around the fact that Big Data has its claws in just about everything, up to and including your personal vehicle. That’s about to become even truer thanks to the Tuesday announcement of a partnership between Amazon Web Services and BlackBerry.

The partnership involves BlackBerry’s in-car data integration and monitoring platform, IVY. What does this mean for you, the consumer? On a surface level, nothing. But for automakers, it’s a different story. IVY will let them collect sensor data and offer up insights based on that data.

Those insights could be used to improve safety tech in cars, speed up self-driving car development or possibly even warn drivers about hazards on their route. IVY will also allow vehicle developers to more

shares have spiked more than 50% on Tuesday amid surging investor optimism about the company’s automobile sensor software platform, known as Ivy.

Having long ago moved on from its once-iconic mobile phones, BlackBerry (ticker: BB) Tuesday morning announced a deal with

Amazon.com’s

(AMZN) Amazon Web Services to jointly develop and market Ivy, which BlackBerry describes as “a scalable, cloud-connected software platform that will allow automakers to provide a consistent and secure way to read vehicle sensor data, normalize it, and create actionable insights from that data both locally in the vehicle and in the cloud.” The company said auto makers can use Ivy “to create responsive in-vehicle services that enhance driver and passenger experiences.”

The companies didn’t provide any financial details of the arrangement, but the announcement has had the effect of turning

Gasoline Car Bans Show Why Market Forces Aren’t Always Enough

(Bloomberg) —

It’s been a strange year, so you’d be forgiven for missing an odd thing that happened in the U.K. last month. When Prime Minister Boris Johnson, leader of the Conservative Party, banned sales of new internal combustion engine cars from 2030, the decision was supported by the likes of oil giant Royal Dutch Shell Plc and the Confederation of British Industry, a powerful business group. 

How did these champions of market-driven policies and fewer regulations become promoters of such a heavy-handed intervention?

Perhaps the ban is simply something any competent government, regardless of its political bent, should be doing. The U.K. has a legally mandated goal to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. That means quickly cutting emissions from all sectors, including transport. Last year, the government’s independent advisor, the Climate Change Committee, recommended the 2030 ban as a way of meeting the U.K.’s climate targets. Maybe

Roadside Attractions – A Startup’s Plan To Support Britain’s Green Car Revolution

Petrol driven cars are set to disappear from Britain’s roads rather sooner than expected. Under the government’s updated “Green Industrial Revolution” plan, every new car sold from 2030 onwards must be either electric or an approved hybrid. This replaces a previous deadline of 2040.

All except the most hardened climate change skeptics will see this as a good thing, but a rapid transition to battery-powered mobility does pose certain short-term problems, not least in terms of providing a workable and user-friendly charging infrastructure.  

As things stand, even a rapid charging point will take around thirty minutes to pump up a battery from empty to full. Arguably that’s not too bad, but it compares unfavorably with the two or three minutes required to fill a petrol tank. Yes, you’re helping to save the planet but a half-hour wait is less than convenient.

The connected car will be the new gaming console

Some 2.5 billion people around the world play video games, with tens of millions more joining their ranks amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Gaming’s growing popularity isn’t only affecting how people spend their time cooped up at home. Indeed, its impact is even poised to extend to driving.

Struggling to see the nexus between the automotive and gaming industries? Take that up with Elon Musk, whose Tesla has already rolled out the Tesla Arcade — an in-car gaming console platform — in four models, with plans to expand hiring and potentially develop games exclusively for Tesla drivers. For its part, Mercedes-Benz unveiled a gaming console-equipped CLA Coupé last year.

Other manufacturers are all but certain to follow in the two luxury automakers’ paths. Indeed, among drivers younger than 30, 77% are interested in owning vehicles equipped with VR technology, which can allow in-car gaming, a recent Accenture survey found.

Google’s footprint in Seattle just keeps on growing.

The Alphabet-owned tech giant signed an agreement to purchase land at a car dealership site in Kirkland, Wash., a spokesperson confirmed Thursday.

Business Insider and Bloomberg reported the news last week. King County records obtained by GeekWire show a sale of nearly 10 acres of land at 11845 NE 85th St., home of Lee Johnson car dealerships. There is no purchase price available yet.

Google did not provide more details. “The site is intended to support Google’s future growth in the area,” a spokesperson said.

It’s the latest expansion for Google this year, even amid the ongoing pandemic that has forced some companies to pull back on physical office space with a shift to remote work.

GM follows Tesla in launching car insurance via OnStar

  • General Motors said Wednesday it will sell car insurance directly to owners. 
  • The move is similar to Tesla’s offering that launched in California last year. 
  • Across the board, insurance is changing rapidly thanks to data that can make plans cheaper and help underwriters more easily manage risk. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

General Motors is the latest company to get into the data-driven insurance game.

The automaker on Wednesday announced plans to offer insurance plans through OnStar, and in the process waded into an increasingly crowded field of data-driven and customizable insurance products targeting a new generation of drivers and car owners.

Perhaps most notably, Tesla chief Elon Musk set out last year to build an in-house insurance offering by hiring “revolutionary actuaries” after some owners found third-party underwriters to be overly expensive.

Ford, too, said earlier this year that it would sell insurance to drivers by the

Uber reportedly may sell its self-driving car division to rival Aurora

Uber is in talks to sell its autonomous vehicle unit to startup competitor Aurora Innovation, TechCrunch reported. If it comes to pass, the sale of Uber Advanced Technologies Group (UberATG), would mark the end of a bumpy road for a division of Uber that was valued at $7.25 billion as recently as last July, but which has been plagued with ongoing problems.

In March of 2019, Uber avoided criminal charges in the 2018 death of Elaine Herzberg in Tempe, Arizona, the first-ever death involving an autonomous car. Federal investigators found that Uber, the safety driver behind the wheel of the car, and the state of Arizona all shared a portion of the blame for the incident. The accident ended Uber’s test program in Tempe, but the company resumed testing in Pittsburgh, where UberATG is headquartered.

And UberATG was involved in a trade secrets lawsuit with competitor Waymo, owned by Google
