What you need to know about vehicle-to-vehicle communication

Embraced as one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in recent years, V2V is expected to improve the safety of our roads by allowing cars to communicate details like speed and GPS position to one another to help drivers avoid accidents. In December of 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) proposed a new regulation that would require new vehicles to be equipped with vehicle-to-vehicle, or V2V, communications.V2V is crash-mitigation technology that relies on the transmission of high volumes of data between...

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first A fake suburb in Florida, complete with sidewalks, shops and parents out with their children. Huge chunks of highway given over to testing new types of machine. Tweaks to the law to get rid of side mirrors, and to allow drivers to watch a film while they are out for a spin in their new car. It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi. But in fact, these are all measures that individual American states have taken in the last few... [Lire la suite]

ADAS for motorbikes : Saferider

ADAS for motorbikes : Saferider European statistics show that Powered-Two-Wheelers (PTW) road accidents are extremely high. During the last decade, ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS) and IN-VEHICLE INFORMATION SYSTEMS (IVIS) development is one of the main research areas of the automotive industry. However, the application of such technologies in motorcycles and even clean motorbikes (electric) is currently lacking behind and should be undoubtedly studied further. Therefore the aim of SAFERIDER is to study the potential of...

Beeping ADAS: Reflexive effect on drivers’ behavior

Beeping ADAS: Reflexive effect on drivers’ behavior Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are designed to assist individuals while they are at the wheel of a motor vehicle. Many ADAS emit acoustic signals when parameters such as drivers’ maintained speed exceed given thresholds. This study examines the early and late effects on lane keeping and speed maintenance produced by both the onset of and prolonged exposure to a continuous beep like those emitted by ADAS. While driving a simulator along a straight road section,... [Lire la suite]
