Nissan and DeNA will begin testing a self-driving taxi service in Japan next month | TechCrunch
Nissan Motor and DeNA announced today that field tests of Easy Ride, the self-driving taxi service they developed together, will begin next month in Japan. This means that Nissan and DeNA now rank among Uber, Lyft, GM, Didi Chuxing and other companies pioneering self-driving taxi pilots, with the goal of launching commercially within the next few years.

DeNA is a Tokyo-headquartered online services company that is probably best known outside of Japan for a partnership with Nintendo that has produced mobile games like “Fire Emblem Heroes.” Its other services, however, encompass a wide range of verticals, including e-commerce, entertainment, healthcare, social networking and automotive tech. Two years ago, DeNA launched its first production vehicles with French autonomous vehicle company EasyMile, which are used to provide a driverless shuttle service called Robot Shuttle in Japanese cities.

Uber and municipal government: Super friends?
Here's the key lesson: Ride-sharing isn't replacing other forms of transportation. It supplements it.
People don't really use ride-sharing for commuting that much, and they still use it less frequently than trains, buses, bikes, and their own cars. When they do use ride-sharing instead of public transit, it's usually for reasons of time or reliability. It's not clear how often people use ride-sharing along with public transit — say, getting off the bus or the subway and then hailing an Uber or Lyft to go the final stretch. But the researchers estimate its modest, in the range of 3 percent to 16 percent of all rides.
People mostly use ride-sharing for a few specific tasks like getting around to various social activities on weekend nights, or getting to and from the airport. Clearly, ride-sharing is never going to replace public transit. There's just no substitute for well-funded buses, trains, subways, and rail.

Uber Express Pool offers the cheapest fares yet in exchange for a little walking - The Verge
Here’s how it works: riders who select Express Pool will be asked to wait a minute or two longer than usual to be matched with a driver. The idea is that during this additional time, Uber’s algorithm is blasting through hundreds of different drivers, routes, pickup and dropoff locations, and additional riders looking for the optimal match. After the match, riders will be directed to walk a few extra blocks to their pickup location, where (if Uber’s algorithm worked the way its supposed to) they’ll hopefully meet one or two additional riders who’ve also been matched with the same driver.

Bad Bus (Part 2/3) – Citymapper – Medium
The first generation of transport tech has often given cities a headache. This makes it hard for other players to engage in a meaningful manner.
This is bad for the future of collaborations between the public and private sector. Transit agencies and bus operators run bus systems, but don’t always have the right capabilities for software and data analytics.

Bosch acquires B2B rideshare startup SPLT and establishes mobility service arm | TechCrunch
Bosch has acquired a ridesharing startup called SPLT that offered employers, universities and municipal authorities workforce-focused ridesharing services to help them offer shared commute as a means of increasing convenience and alleviating route congestion. Bosch, a leading global automotive industry supplier, is also establishing a new dedicated mobility services division, a sign of the changing times and nature of the automotive space.

The SPLT acquisition is a cornerstone piece of its new focus on mobility services, with the aim of offering everything from shared rides in cars to company buses on the same, easy to use platform with end user smartphone apps and easy ride booking. SPLT will continue to operate independently as a wholly owned subsidiary of Bosch post acquisition close.

Future Transport: How is London responding to technological innovation | London City Hall

Dockless cycle schemes need to be able to operate across London to be effective
There is no control system in place for drones and droids
TfL is monitoring technological developments but this needs to be embedded across the whole organisation

Put Driverless Cars Back in the Slow Lane | RealClearPolicy
Even taking Waymo’s numbers at face value, there’s little reason to believe that driverless cars are remotely as safe as human drivers. It’s difficult to translate these statistics into a judgment about the relative safety of autonomous cars. Comparing reported disengagements to human crashes is misleading, since not all disengagements situations would have led to a crash if uncorrected. To allow for a more direct comparison, Waymo estimated “simulated contacts,” or the number of disengagements that would have likely led to crashes. Based on these data, last reported in 2015, Google/Waymo vehicles would’ve crashed .02 times per 1,000 miles driven without testers. Generously assuming that the crash rate halved since 2015, Waymo vehicles are still far more dangerous than human drivers.
