Would You Buy a Self-Driving Future From These Guys?

Crédit photo:Jan Buchczik   When the owner of an automated Tesla was killed in a crash last year, the carmaker’s founder, Elon Musk, urged journalists to peer into the future. “If, in writing some article that’s negative, you effectively dissuade people from using an autonomous vehicle,” Mr. Musk said, “you’re killing people.” Scary. But self-driving vehicle proponents like Mr. Musk envision a world where those cars would all but eliminate traffic accidents, unleash our productivity and allow the old and disabled to travel...

Daimler is Building a Self-Driving Snow Plow

Daimler is Building a Self-Driving Snow Plow Most of us have been affected by flight delays due to inclement weather. In fact, according to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the largest cause of air traffic delays in the National Airspace System is the weather. While flight delays are a nuisance, they also translate into real losses for industry-related companies and passengers. It’s estimated that a one-hour delay can result in a loss of $1,400-$4,500 (lots of variables). If you include passengers, the loss increases by... [Lire la suite]

MAP-BASED ADAS STANDARDS AND SOLUTIONS: ADASIS AND ELECTRONIC HORIZON

MAP-BASED ADAS STANDARDS AND SOLUTIONS: ADASIS AND ELECTRONIC HORIZON 1. MAP-ENABLED ADAS: CONCEPT Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) seek to warn drivers of impending hazards or to intervene on their behalf; avoid an accident or to undertake certain driving tasks. Clearly, ADAS must have access to data concerning situations unfolding around the vehicle in order to exact the correct maneuver or issue the appropriate warning. In general, this is provided by sensors equipped on the vehicle, which can include ... [Lire la suite]

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars

Pioneering CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, is committed to the development of self-driving cars In 2012, there were 33,561 deaths from motor vehicle accidents. Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, announced in 2015 that Tesla cars would handle 90 percent of driving within five years. This plan included all Tesla vehicles being equipped with an autopilot system. Musk compared Tesla's autopilot to the autopilot in airplanes, where people still manually control the vehicle in risky situations. Tesla vehicles will use optical equipment and... [Lire la suite]

could AEROMOBIL flying car be a good alternative to self driving car ?

could AEROMOBIL flying car be a good alternative to self driving car ? More and more startups come up with flying car demos and prototypes. AEROMOBIL is one of those ambitious projects : Everyone knows that it is much more easier to automate a flying object than a driving object (6 dgrees of mechanical freedom vs 17 degrees of mechanical freedom). In addition, routing in 3D is much more efficient than routing in 2D : the more the number of dimensions, the emptiess is the space. In 3D space, there is much more room for the... [Lire la suite]

ADAS SENSORS 2018 conference

ADAS SENSORS 2018 conference Sample of previous speakers papers : Designing sensor algorithms for the automobile environmentTony GioutsosDirector of Sales and MarketingTASS International The difference between an automobile environment and other environments when designing an algorithm is substantial. Most important is the need for safety. When driving a vehicle at a high rate of speed, any error can produce tragic results. Because automobiles are expected to survive 15 years in all kinds of conditions, it is basically impossible... [Lire la suite]
