How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions

How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions As long as vehicles do not provide full automation, the design and function of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) is crucial for ensuring that the human “driver” and the vehicle-based automated systems collaborate in a safe manner. When the driver is decoupled from active control, the design of the HMI becomes even more critical. Without mutual understanding, the two agents (human and vehicle) will fail to accurately comprehend each other’s... [Lire la suite]

ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption

ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption Now there is a buzz about telematics devices and onboard smartphone Apps, even Dashcams, with applications to fleet management, motor insurance pricing, etc. Features are geolocation, predictive maintenance, eco-driving scoring, driving risk assessment ... All those features may bring a Return On Investment (ROI), but in the long term only. And long term (a few years) is not easy to predict. It is one reason why we hear so much but we see few real large scale deployments. ... [Lire la suite]

Next-generation technology is coming to a self-driving car near you

Next-generation technology is coming to a self-driving car near you ypically, navigation systems for autonomous cars use visible light to identify foreign objects. This works most of the time. But in misty, foggy, or rainy conditions, self-driving cars become a deer in headlights, largely unaware of upcoming obstacles. Scattered light confuses the car's system, thus blurring the distinction between real objects and reflections from the scattered light itself. Under these conditions, autonomous cars cannot recognize upcoming... [Lire la suite]
