Recent winter weather-related accidents should serve as a cautionary tale

Recent winter weather-related accidents should serve as a cautionary tale The sheer number of car accidents in Michigan this week should be a reminder to us all that we need to exercise great caution when driving in the winter Throughout this past week, Michigan has been hammered with ice, snow, and dangerously low temperatures. Winter has certainly returned to our state. Unfortunately, with the weather being as hazardous as it’s been, we have heard countless reports of weather-related auto accidents. In fact, if you’ve not... [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... [Lire la suite]

Who is responsible when a self-driving car kills someone?

Who is responsible when a self-driving car kills someone?   An Uber-owned Volvo in autonomous mode struck and killed a pedestrian. The vehicle had a human driver behind the wheel when the tragedy occurred.  This incident brings a sudden urgency to the moral quandary that ethicists have been discussing since before self-driving cars were a reality: Whose fault was this death?  Read more : https://mashable.com/2018/03/22/self-driving-car-fatality-uber-liability/?europe=true#L.5xeH1O7Pqk

How Far Can Driverless Cars Take Us?

How Far Can Driverless Cars Take Us? Driverless cars and trucks—or autonomous vehicles (AV)—offer a tantalizing promise of safer and unclogged roadways. In 2017, 37,150 people died in accidents on America’s roads, reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, up sharply from 32,479 in 2011, and far worse per capita than anywhere else in the Western world. And the United States has ten of the 25 most congested cities globally, according to the Inrix transportation intelligence group. Cars that drive themselves could... [Lire la suite]

Can in-vehicle technologies help improve driver safety for seniors?

Can in-vehicle technologies help improve driver safety for seniors? The University of Iowa Aging Mind and Brain Initiative (AMBI) will partner with Toyota Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) to study how older drivers interact with in-vehicle technology that’s designed to help improve driver safety. These technologies, including advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), aim to help improve car safety by assisting drivers with various aspects of driving, including navigation and wayfinding, handling the...

V2X communications – LTE versus DSRC

V2X communications – LTE versus DSRC   With all the hype surrounding self-driving vehicles based on artificial intelligence (AI), image recognition and sophisticated sensors, it is easy to forget about another important interrelated technology that also promises to help revolutionise driving. It is, in fact, destined to be a critical factor in making autonomous vehicles a reality. Known by the acronym V2X, it covers both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. V2X refers broadly to a set... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Vehicles, Car Sharing, and the Urban Mobility Revolution

Self-Driving Vehicles, Car Sharing, and the Urban Mobility Revolution New automotive technologies and business models are converging to spark a transformative revolution on our city streets. It’s no longer a question of if but when self-driving vehicles (SDVs, also known as autonomous vehicles) will hit the road. Multiple parties are already at work developing autonomous-driving technologies, and the trend toward putting SDVs on the road is rapidly gaining momentum across a broad front that encompasses OEMs,...
