Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot

Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot Enabling a humanoid robot to drive a car, requires the development of a set of basic primitive actions. These include: walking to the vehicle, manually controlling its commands (e.g., ignition, gas pedal and steering), and moving with the whole-body, to ingress/egress the car. In this paper, we present a sensorbased reactive framework for realizing the central part of the complete task, consisting in driving the car along unknown roads. The proposed framework provides three driving... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars: Transforming Mobility For The Elderly And People With Disabilities

Self-Driving Cars: Transforming Mobility For The Elderly And People With Disabilities The federal government recently released guidance that will hasten the roll out of self-driving cars on American roads. The roads will not be filled with driverless cars tomorrow, but these smart, efficient vehicles are already operating in some cities and they will become widespread more quickly than most drivers think. Automakers and technology companies are making significant strides towards the connected car future. New sensor and... [Lire la suite]

Auto Aftermarket Readies for Tech Advances

Auto Aftermarket Readies for Tech Advances The automotive industry is on the cusp of a revolution. Hardly a day goes by without a headline about advanced driver assistance technology and fully autonomous vehicles— and in April electric vehicle maker Tesla overtook General Motors by market capitalization. With ride-sharing platforms like Uber and Lyft, the entire business model of the transportation industry is changing. For now, at least, all that technology is having limited impact on investments in the aftermarket,... [Lire la suite]

Vehicle safety regulations and ADAS: tensions between law and technology

ADAS Safety Focus: Around View Systems Automobile safety has driven several key innovations over the years from anti-lock brakes to airbags. German automakers have been first to leverage many of the most advanced technologies to improve driver safety and the overall driving experience. For example, German vehicles were the first to offer active lane keeping assist, which introduces a vibration to the steering wheel when the driver veers from his lane. Then came side assist radar to help drivers safely change lanes. It alerts the... [Lire la suite]

The New Auto Insurance Ecosystem: Telematics, Mobility and the Connected Car

The New Auto Insurance Ecosystem: Telematics, Mobility and the Connected Car With the increased use of mobile communications, the stage is set for property and casualty insurers to develop more meaningful and mutually beneficial relationships with policyholders. Nowhere is this more clear than in auto/motor insurance, where advances in machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, or telematics, are rippling across the marketplace, generating data to more precisely assess risk and reward for policyholders who adhere to safe driving...

Are Driverless Cars An Auto Insurance Train Wreck?

Are Driverless Cars An Auto Insurance Train Wreck? Auto Insurers May Welcome Autonomous Cars as Accident Rates Fall Autonomous cars won’t eliminate auto-insurance premiums, even if they prove safer than human drivers, since accidents aren’t the only risk vehicles face. Auto fatalities are down 23% from 2006 to 2013, even as premiums climbed 9.8% to $186 billion and underwriting margins fell to negative 1.1% from 6.1%. Like other vehicles, autonomous cars would face perils such as storms and misuse, while complex liability... [Lire la suite]

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car Forget expensive pedestrian avoidance systems using embedded cameras and radars.   A new system being developed by General Motors explores how pedestrians’ smartphones could be used to alert drivers to potential collisions. And the broader automotive community is taking note. Automakers like Volvo and Toyota have unveiled pedestrian detection in the last few years, but those systems are based on refinements to in-car accident avoidance systems, such as vehicle-embedded cameras and...

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS On behalf of MEMA, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) analyzed the available ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technologies and concluded that if every vehicle on the road were equipped with them, the toll taken on society from vehicle accidents could be sharply reduced. Relatively few vehicles on the road today have these systems, however, and their penetration of the market is growing at only two to five percent annually. Since the vast majority of...

Windscreens: Fleet industry needs to work together to maximise the safety benefits of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)

Windscreens: Fleet industry needs to work together to maximise the safety benefits of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)   There is little doubt that the introduction of ADAS into fleets can significantly improve driver safety - if managed correctly. However, the speed at which these systems have appeared on the market, and the huge range of different products available, have presented challenges for drivers, fleet operators, dealers, insurers and the vehicle aftermarket. In reaction to this, we combined forces with... [Lire la suite]
