ZF Friedrichshafen has spent the year aggressively building up expertise to help it capitalize on the move toward autonomous driving. The key moves include forming partnerships with Faurecia to develop new interior and safety technologies and with Hella for front camera systems, imaging and radar systems. ZF has also teamed up with chipmaker Nvidia to develop artificial intelligence systems that will be used in forthcoming autonomous vehicles.
When Gerhard Steiger started his career at Robert Bosch three decades ago, failure was simply unacceptable. But a mind shift has occurred at the world's largest supplier since Steiger took over as the head of chassis systems five years ago. In the interest of stimulating innovative thinking, failure is encouraged — as long as it provides a valuable lesson. Steiger, 59, discussed the change with Automotive News Europe Managing Editor Douglas A. Bolduc.
Volvo has signed a framework agreement with Uber on a three-year deal to sell it up to 24,000 cars that will become part of the ride-sharing giant's first robotaxi fleet. Volvo said it will supply Uber with XC90 SUVs that will have the core autonomous driving technologies that Uber needs to add its own self-driving features. "The automotive industry is being disrupted by technology and Volvo chooses to be an active part of that disruption," Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson said in a statement on Monday.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
