Dubai's autonomous flying taxis: A reality in 2018?

Dubai's autonomous flying taxis: A reality in 2018? Autonomous flying cars may seem like an image out of a science fiction movie, but the technology already physically exists: Dubai began testing electric taxi drones in September 2017. Similar to a two-seater helicopter, the Volocopter taxi is designed for 30-minute flights to and from 'voloports,' which are basically train stations for flying taxis. But, despite the tests, experts agree: Autonomous flying taxis almost certainly won't get off the ground as a commercially... [Lire la suite]

The GATEway project announces the next phase of driverless pod trials

The GATEway project announces the next phase of driverless pod trials   The GATEway project is soon to launch its open public trial of driverless pods. These autonomous pods will provide first and last mile transportation around the Greenwich peninsula by connecting important transport hubs with business, leisure and residential locations. The GATEway team is delighted to announce that for the next phase, commencing in the Autumn, Fusion Processing will provide sensing and control equipment on the brand new pods that are...

Self-driving pods could be the future of urban transport in Greenville

Self-driving pods could be the future of urban transport in Greenville   Imagine for a moment that you push a button and a personal cab arrives to take you to your destination. Instead of traveling on a congested interstate or highway that’s plagued with damaging potholes, your cab quickly zooms off across a system of elevated tracks. That’s the vision of Greenville County Councilman Fred Payne. Payne is one of several local officials leading a new feasibility study of automated transit networks in Greenville, Mauldin, and...

What is the current state of ADAS in production cars?

What is the current state of ADAS in production cars? It’s definitely been very busy few months of testing at SBD as we’ve seen more complex systems arrive in the market.   One of our most recent benchmarking activities was a Cadillac CT6 with Super Cruise – the first true hands-free driving system. We had to get quite creative with our methodology to make sure we could come up with a broad set of use cases to anticipate how consumers may use (or misuse) the system. Read more... [Lire la suite]

Watch Yamaha's Humanoid Robot Ride a Motorcycle Around a Racetrack

Watch Yamaha's Humanoid Robot Ride a Motorcycle Around a Racetrack Yamaha has just put a humanoid robot on one of its motorcycles and pitted it against Valentino Rossi, a professional rider. The robot didn’t win, but it’s amazing that it could ride at all. What’s striking is that the bike is unmodified: the robot is a hunched-over form on top. It senses the environment, calculates what to do, keeps the bike stable, manages acceleration and deceleration—all while factoring in road conditions, air... [Lire la suite]

Human Factors in Automated Driving

Human Factors in Automated Driving   Automated driving will fundamentally change road transportation. But the role of humans and human-system interaction need to be clearly established to ensure a smooth ride. Automated driving technology has the potential to fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. If set on the right track, automated vehicles (AVs) could reduce accidents caused by human errors, increase traffic flow efficiency, increase comfort by allowing the driver to perform alternative...

Simulation-Driven Validation of Advanced Driving-Assistance Systems

Simulation-Driven Validation of Advanced Driving-Assistance Systems Advanced driving-assistance systems (ADAS) have recently received an increasing attention from the car industry. ADAS development represents a considerable effort to obtain efficient and reliable systems. Driving several million kilometers is necessary to validate a system. Thus, there are strong needs to ease the development and validation processes. In this context, computer simulation techniques are a candidate solution to this problem since running digital...

National Windscreens takes role in European ADAS calibration initiative

National Windscreens takes role in European ADAS calibration initiative   National Windscreens has taken a role in a new European-wide initiative to create higher standards for calibration of windscreen-mounted cameras used in ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems). ADAS systems include autonomous emergency braking (AEB), adaptive cruise control, blind spot elimination, and lane keep assist. Most of these features rely on a windscreen-mounted camera in order to operate, which means that when a windscreen is replaced it is... [Lire la suite]

AUTOMATED TRUCKS: HOW MUCH DISRUPTIVE POTENTIAL DO THEY HAVE?

AUTOMATED TRUCKS: HOW MUCH DISRUPTIVE POTENTIAL DO THEY HAVE? Roland Berger fills the expectations for automated trucks with life: with figures, charts and investment calculations. It’s no secret that the future of the automotive industry will be a driverless one—car manufacturers have been traveling this road for many years now. However, advancements in technology have reached a point where automated trucks have the potential to bring a disruptive change to the trucking industry. This automation would allow companies to save... [Lire la suite]

Ugly But Useful: Stockholm Introduces Driverless Buses

Ugly But Useful: Stockholm Introduces Driverless Buses Possibly no-other European nation loves technology as much as the Swedes. Stockholm has more tech startups per capita than any other city in the world apart from Silicon Valley. Automation is almost everywhere in Sweden, helping to eliminate the requirement for expensive Swedish labour or cash. It’s rare to find a petrol pump in Sweden where you don’t have to pay at the pump first by credit card. So driverless buses and cars in Sweden seem a no-brainer. Think how many more...
