Renault R-NEST: using stimulation to fight hypovigilance at the wheel

Renault R-NEST: using stimulation to fight hypovigilance at the wheel The Renault R-NEST project (Renault Research Tool for NEuroscience STudies) was developed by the Groupe Renault Research department as a neurophysiology research tool and demo model for these types of system. The purpose of this research is to help reduce accidents caused by driving fatigue. The demo model consists of a static driving module. It has two cameras (3D and 2D) that capture and record driver reactions and measure a large amount of data (heart rate,... [Lire la suite]

Snooze mobiles: how vibrations in cars make drivers sleepy

Snooze mobiles: how vibrations in cars make drivers sleepy New research has found the natural vibrations of cars make people sleepier, affecting concentration and alertness levels just 15 minutes after drivers get behind the wheel. With about 20 per cent of fatal road crashes involving driver fatigue, RMIT University researchers hope their findings can be used by manufacturers to improve car seat designs to help keep drivers awake. Professor Stephen Robinson said the effects of physical vibration on drivers were not... [Lire la suite]

How Technology is Driving the Democratization of ADAS

How Technology is Driving the Democratization of ADAS Today's ADAS (advanced driver-assistance systems) functions do more than reduce the risk of injuries during a crash. Many features, such as autonomous braking, collision avoidance, and the ability of a vehicle to determine whether a lane change is possible, are designed to help avoid accidents altogether. ADAS features, only offered to drivers when purchasing a new vehicle as embedded solutions, first appeared as options on high-end luxury vehicles. Unfortunately, to date, it... [Lire la suite]

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says

Tesla's robotaxi fleet will be 'functionally ready' in 2020, Musk says   Last year during its Autonomy Investor Day, Tesla laid out the broad strokes of its plan for a fleet of autonomous Teslas to operate as a "robotaxi" service. Of course, at the time, this seemed like a flight of fancy, given the fact that no car manufacturer is even close to full, Level 5 autonomy, by the standard SAE definition. Fast-forward to now, and it still seems like a flight of fancy. Nevertheless, problems of... [Lire la suite]

WAYMO’S DRIVERLESS CAR: GHOST-RIDING IN THE BACK SEAT OF A ROBOT TAXI

WAYMO’S DRIVERLESS CAR: GHOST-RIDING IN THE BACK SEAT OF A ROBOT TAXI Last October, Alphabet’s self-driving subsidiary Waymo emailed its customers in the suburbs of Phoenix to let them know that “completely driverless Waymo cars are on the way.” For several years, Waymo has offered its autonomous taxi service to a small group of people, but the rides typically included a safety driver behind the steering wheel. Now, Waymo is saying more of those rides will take place sans safety driver, a sign that the company is growing... [Lire la suite]
