UPDATE - Audi Receives First Autonomous Driving Permit Issued by the State of California Sep 17, 2014 07:41PM

HERNDON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/17/14 --

  • New California laws governing the testing of automated driving go into effect today
  • Regulations require surety bond coverage of at least $5 million for each vehicle covered by a license; allow testing on any state road
  • Audi was the first OEM to gain a Nevada autonomous driving plate in 2012, and the first to test on new Florida connected car expressway

Audi will be the first company to receive a newly established autonomous driving permit issued by California. A range of new regulations that govern the testing of automated driving on the state's roads take effect today.

Audi has conducted research over tens of thousands of miles in Europe and various U.S. states, where such testing is permitted. The research is aimed at preparing a highly automated Piloted driving system for freeway traffic conditions. Audi envisions this technology could be ready for consumer introduction within five years.

California roads are especially crucial to Audi Piloted driving testing because the state is home to the brand's Electronics Research Lab. ERL engineers are working on a wide range of automated driving issues, including human-machine interface prompts that indicate when the human or the vehicle are handling driving functions.

Audi and ERL researchers have been involved in the pursuit of automated driving from its earliest stages. Audi, ERL and Stanford University engineers collaborated on the development of the Autonomous Audi TTS Pikes Peak car, which successfully completed the challenging 12.42-mile route of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb race in Colorado in 27 minutes without a human in the car.

"Audi is a driving force behind the research taking automated driving from science fiction to pre-production readiness," said Scott Keogh, President, Audi of America. "Obtaining the first permit issued by the State of California shows that we intend to remain the leader in this vital technology frontier."

California has allowed limited use of its roads for automated vehicle testing in past years. But the state legislature, led by Sen. Alex Padilla, passed legislation that Gov. Jerry Brown signed in 2012 to establish new guidelines for testing and eventually consumer use of technologies, such as Audi Piloted driving.

Regulations taking effect today include proof of insurance or surety bonds for manufacturers testing automated driving research cars, and permits for company-designated operators of those vehicles.

"California has shown time and time again that it is a global technological leader and today marks the beginning of a new era for the auto industry," Sen. Padilla said. "Driverless vehicle technology has the potential to revolutionize driving, reduce traffic accidents and save lives. I applaud the efforts of Audi of America and others whose commitment is making this technology a reality."

In 2012, Audi was the first automotive OEM to receive one of the red autonomous vehicle license plates issues by the State of Nevada. In July, with Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Audi was the first automaker to demonstrate the capability of its automated driving technologies on a Tampa expressway newly designated as an autonomous and connected car test bed.

HACKJACKET Announces Completion Of Rebranding From Federated Networks Sep 17, 2014 07:31PM

TORONTO, Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- HACKJACKET, a Toronto based Internet security and privacy company, today announced the complete rebranding of its corporate identity and website from Federated Networks to HACKJACKET.  "Although we recognize and are proud that Federated Networks pioneered some important technologies related to the strengthening of the SSL protocol and the immunization of devices from spyware, ultimately the original vision of our business and our brand evolved and it was time to reframe our identity to more accurately and succinctly communicate our value propositions," noted David Lowenstein, CEO of HACKJACKET. The redesigned branding showcases a fresh look for the company and the website utilizes a responsive and easy-to-navigate mobile friendly design. Website visitors will also find information about the Company, its technologies and products, as well as the Protect Yourself Blog for those interested in learning more about the latest news, trends, ideas and issues related to Internet security, privacy, trust and hacking.

The Internet's security and privacy threat vectors as well as our collective knowledge of them have both risen exponentially in recent years. The number of successful attacks by Hacktivist's, cybercriminal's, nation state actors and even citizen surveillance oriented governments clearly demonstrate the relative ease of materially bypassing today's protection solutions. "Given the growing public awareness of the need for better online protection, we are excited to soon be introducing a set of solutions that embrace a bold new protection vision and technology, as well as some provably strong results," said Risu Na, Chief Technology officer of HACKJACKET.

The basic idea behind HACKJACKET is to provide everything you need to Protect Yourself online and personally control the security and privacy of your online data, content, communication, browsing and cloud infrastucture. Said another way, HACKJACKET's bold ambition is to put control of the Internet back where it rightfully belongs, in the hands of its users.  The company will be announcing updates to its web presence, technology and products in the coming months.
