Telematics trends in the UK

Telematics trends in the UK Usage of telematics is growing quickly in the UK, targeting young drivers and addressing some of the issues created by the new EU gender directive. What is telematics insurance? Telematics insurance requires the installation of a device on the vehicle, commonly called a “Black Box”. This device communicates with on board instruments to monitor a series of parameters like hours of the day when the vehicle is driven, the distance driven, they type of roads where the car is driven and the speed of the...

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first A fake suburb in Florida, complete with sidewalks, shops and parents out with their children. Huge chunks of highway given over to testing new types of machine. Tweaks to the law to get rid of side mirrors, and to allow drivers to watch a film while they are out for a spin in their new car. It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi. But in fact, these are all measures that individual American states have taken in the last few... [Lire la suite]

ADAS for motorbikes : Saferider

ADAS for motorbikes : Saferider European statistics show that Powered-Two-Wheelers (PTW) road accidents are extremely high. During the last decade, ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS) and IN-VEHICLE INFORMATION SYSTEMS (IVIS) development is one of the main research areas of the automotive industry. However, the application of such technologies in motorcycles and even clean motorbikes (electric) is currently lacking behind and should be undoubtedly studied further. Therefore the aim of SAFERIDER is to study the potential of...

Beeping ADAS: Reflexive effect on drivers’ behavior

Beeping ADAS: Reflexive effect on drivers’ behavior Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are designed to assist individuals while they are at the wheel of a motor vehicle. Many ADAS emit acoustic signals when parameters such as drivers’ maintained speed exceed given thresholds. This study examines the early and late effects on lane keeping and speed maintenance produced by both the onset of and prolonged exposure to a continuous beep like those emitted by ADAS. While driving a simulator along a straight road section,... [Lire la suite]

In-Vehicle Infotainment Software Platform

In-Vehicle Infotainment Software Platform By utilizing the capabilities of an on-dash computer, we have created a system that will enable remote monitoring of a company’s fleet vehicles. This can greatly improve the control over operations by allowing vehicle dispatching and estimating times of arrival. This means a factory can be ready for a delivery before a vehicle arrives at the plant, thus greatly decreasing the amount of idle-time. Running an Android based custom ROM ,GENIVI™ or AGL™ (Automotive... [Lire la suite]

Startups Aim to Get a Piece of the Driverless Car

Startups Aim to Get a Piece of the Driverless Car You don’t have to be a tech giant to teach a vehicle to drive itself. Big names like Tesla and Google grab all the attention when it comes to developing autonomous vehicles. But, very quietly, startups have also been getting into the field. These small companies are taking advantage of easily accessible software and plummeting equipment prices to carve out a niche in this emerging industry—retrofitting existing vehicles that do specialized jobs. Thilo Koslowski, a senior... [Lire la suite]

Design of Context-aware Systems for vehicles using complex system paradigms

Design of Context-aware Systems for vehicles using complex system paradigms Pervasive computing technology such as sensors, actuators, wireless networks and processors are commonly used to assist humans to perform tasks. Contextawareness systems have become a growing area of study for pervasive and ubiquitous research communities. Unfortunately context-aware systems have not been thoroughly used to assist driving tasks. Intelligent Transport System (ITS) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are growing research fields that... [Lire la suite]
