Developing a Driverless Vehicle

Developing a Driverless Vehicle Are near-zero vehicle collisions a possibility with the advent of autonomous vehicle technology? With the amount of research being done today, it could be a reality sooner rather than later. Imagine a crash-free society, where human error is taken out of the driving equation. Vehicles would function as robots, equipped with lasers, radar, camera sensors, and GPS systems. They would travel from Point A to Point B with a near-zero chance of a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians crossing the... [Lire la suite]

Now California's DMV can allow fully driverless car testing

Credit: Waymo Automakers can now start testing fully driverless cars on California's roads. According to the state DMV's new regulations that became effective on April 2nd, it can now issue three types of autonomous vehicle testing permits. The first kind is the original one it approved years ago, which needs a driver behind the wheel, while the other two could pave the way for the release of Level 4 to 5 autonomous vehicles. See, the second type of permit it can dole out will allow automakers to test fully... [Lire la suite]

Widening the Horizons of Autonomous Driving with Advanced Driver Assistance Technology

Widening the Horizons of Autonomous Driving with Advanced Driver Assistance Technology   As urbanization and population ageing continues, traffic accident reduction, alleviation of traffic congestion and reduction of environmental load have become important topics not only for the automotive industry but for society as a whole. Recently, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) has emerged as a milestones in the pursuit of these objectives, and as the functions that make up ADAS are becoming increasingly widespread, fully...

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles The recent Autonomous Vehicle interior design symposium held in Novi, gave me some new insights into the important and often under-rated role that HMI plays in the acceptance of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Why HMI is important – “People universally dislike unpredictability and ambiguity” - #Chris Rockwell / Lextant. To trust the system – people always need to know how the vehicle will behave in a given situation and near future. The HMI system... [Lire la suite]

The link (or not) between ADAS and autonomous

The link (or not) between ADAS and autonomous The auto industry in 2016 is as dynamic as ever, suggesting a market with astonishing momentum. Buzz surrounds the coming launch of the Chevy Bolt, the first highway-capable EV with a 200-mile range. The internet is full of images of preproduction Bolts captured in the wild in southeast Michigan and beyond. By 2020, Ford says it will have added 13 new EVs and that more than 40% of its global nameplates will be available in electrified versions. According to various estimates,... [Lire la suite]

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say.   Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that are hidden around a corner – a... [Lire la suite]

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really?

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really? Self-driving cars are supposed to be our salvation, drastically reducing the 1.3 million road fatalities worldwide each year by replacing humans with robots who can do precision piloting and never get distracted, drowsy or drunk. So why did a self-driving Uber SUV being tested in Tempe, Arizona, strike and kill a woman March 18 without so much as hitting the brakes? The accident will only drive more anxiety about autonomy given that 63 percent of Americans... [Lire la suite]
