People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that

People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that This October, television and web viewers were treated to an advertisement featuring basketball star LeBron James taking a ride in a driverless car. At first, James—known for his fearlessness on the court—peers in doubtfully at the vacant driver's seat and declares: "Nope." But after a short trip in the back seat, he has changed his tune. "Hey yo, I'm keepin' this!" James exclaims to friends. The ad, from computer chip–maker Intel in Santa Clara, California,... [Lire la suite]

Automated Vehicles for Safety

Automated Vehicles for Safety   Overview The continuing evolution of automotive technology aims to deliver even greater safety benefits and Automated Driving Systems (ADS) that—one day—can handle the whole task of driving when we don’t want to or can’t do it ourselves. Fully automated cars and trucks that drive us, instead of us driving them, will become a reality. These self-driving vehicles ultimately will integrate onto U.S. roadways by progressing through six levels of driver assistance technology advancements... [Lire la suite]

SEMA Sees Profit in Aftermarket ADAS

SEMA Sees Profit in Aftermarket ADAS While at the OE level the price of ADAS technologies may be going down, and their availability across various model lines is going up, some still see aftermarket ADAS as necessary well into the future. LAS VEGAS – Compared with the wheel and tire companies, those with aftermarket advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) have had a relatively small presence at the annual SEMA show here. But their numbers are growing, says a top official of SEMA, which recently commissioned a study finding... [Lire la suite]

AROUND THE WORLD IN SELF-DRIVING CARS: ASIA

AROUND THE WORLD IN SELF-DRIVING CARS: ASIA So far in this series, we gave an overview of driverless-car pilot projects across the globe and broke down the testing locations in North America and Europe. This time, we will take a closer look at where these trials are taking place in Asia. This map zooms into Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo, and charts the deployment sites for self-driving vehicles. Shanghai takes a holistic approach Last summer, Shanghai created a 100-square-kilometer closed course for testing of autonomous... [Lire la suite]
