Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way

Legislation facilitating use of autonomous cars could be on the way Autonomous vehicles might be exempt in the future from some of the safety standards put in place by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) if changes that accommodate this new type of road vehicle sees the light of day. Automotive giants such as GM have called for legislative changes that would allow "the full deployment of self-driving vehicles" which, at the moment, have to be equipped with a steering wheel, pedals, and mirrors, although...

Automotive HMI design: How AI can save the identity of car brands

Automotive HMI design: How AI can save the identity of car brands Distinct design has always been at the heart of the car’s appeal. Buying a car is not a rational undertaking – the emotional pull of a car brand is often a key factor in a customer’s buying decision. So, it’s natural that car manufacturers have always spent a lot of effort on creating a distinct design and user experience (UX) that separates their cars from others. And they have largely succeeded: car brands transport certain images, and they have done so for a long... [Lire la suite]

ADAS Benchmarking Hits Market

ADAS Benchmarking Hits Market Automotive chip companies talk about system-on-chips designed for Advanced Driving Assistance Systems all the time. But how can the rest of us — reporters, analysts and most important, carmakers — tell one ADAS SoC from another? Truth is, we can’t. The absence of scientific tools and benchmarks leaves little choice but to take the vendor’s word for it. Or we rely on such imperfect measures as trillion operations per second (TOPS) to compare Intel/Mobileye’s EyeQ5 with Nvidia’s Xavier,... [Lire la suite]

FREE SPACE DETECTION BY CAMERA ON REAL WORLD AREAS NEAR PARIS WITH POOR QUALITY OF BITUMEN ON THE ROAD : CRACKS, PATCHES, ...   Some companies try to detect freespace with a regular camera, without IR (SWIR etc …), without fusion with LIDAR, just because it allows low cost applications especially for aftermarket. Here is an example of the NEXYAD module RoadNex. One can see that there are a lot of cracks, patches (highlights and dark zones), and that RoadNex still detects free space in front of the car.

The hard truth on insurance and telematics

The hard truth on insurance and telematics Whiplash, staged accidents, Ogden, fronting, ghost broking – you name it, motor insurers have been having a rough time of it.  Not only that but they have been getting it, rather ironically, ‘in the neck’ for encouraging a compensation culture in the UK that has seen claims costs spiral and premiums reach record-breaking levels.   Search and compare product listings for Motor Insurance from specialty market providers here While Government reforms are underway to help tackle some...

What’s the difference between automated driving and ADAS?

What’s the difference between automated driving and ADAS? The difference between automated driving and ADAS can be boiled down to the level of human intervention. Up to what level are drivers responsible, and from what level can cars help us? It is this threshold that separates between automated driving and ADAS. The target of ADAS is, needless to say, to increase the scene where collisions are avoidable as much as possible. For example, surveys and classification on actual collisions have been conducted at a lot of developed... [Lire la suite]
