Vehicle safety regulations and ADAS: tensions between law and technology

ADAS Safety Focus: Around View Systems Automobile safety has driven several key innovations over the years from anti-lock brakes to airbags. German automakers have been first to leverage many of the most advanced technologies to improve driver safety and the overall driving experience. For example, German vehicles were the first to offer active lane keeping assist, which introduces a vibration to the steering wheel when the driver veers from his lane. Then came side assist radar to help drivers safely change lanes. It alerts the... [Lire la suite]

Are Driverless Cars An Auto Insurance Train Wreck?

Are Driverless Cars An Auto Insurance Train Wreck? Auto Insurers May Welcome Autonomous Cars as Accident Rates Fall Autonomous cars won’t eliminate auto-insurance premiums, even if they prove safer than human drivers, since accidents aren’t the only risk vehicles face. Auto fatalities are down 23% from 2006 to 2013, even as premiums climbed 9.8% to $186 billion and underwriting margins fell to negative 1.1% from 6.1%. Like other vehicles, autonomous cars would face perils such as storms and misuse, while complex liability... [Lire la suite]

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car Forget expensive pedestrian avoidance systems using embedded cameras and radars.   A new system being developed by General Motors explores how pedestrians’ smartphones could be used to alert drivers to potential collisions. And the broader automotive community is taking note. Automakers like Volvo and Toyota have unveiled pedestrian detection in the last few years, but those systems are based on refinements to in-car accident avoidance systems, such as vehicle-embedded cameras and...

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS On behalf of MEMA, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) analyzed the available ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technologies and concluded that if every vehicle on the road were equipped with them, the toll taken on society from vehicle accidents could be sharply reduced. Relatively few vehicles on the road today have these systems, however, and their penetration of the market is growing at only two to five percent annually. Since the vast majority of...
