Ontario’s Minister of Transportation expands Ontario’s automated vehicle pilot program. According to the announcement, members of the public, not just registered pilot participants, will be allowed to drive automated vehicles equipped with SAE level 3 technology on Ontario roads. However, throughout the drive, a human driver still must be present and always ready to assume control of the vehicle in case of an emergency.
The Internet of Things (IoT) includes a wide range of Internet-connected devices, from highly digitalised cars, home appliances (e.g. fridges), and smart watches, to digitalised clothes that can monitor health. IoT devices are often connected in wide-systems, typically described as 'smart houses' or 'smart cities'.
