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 Xavier,... [Lire la suite]

The hard truth on insurance and telematics

The hard truth on insurance and telematics Whiplash, staged accidents, Ogden, fronting, ghost broking – you name it, motor insurers have been having a rough time of it.  Not only that but they have been getting it, rather ironically, ‘in the neck’ for encouraging a compensation culture in the UK that has seen claims costs spiral and premiums reach record-breaking levels.   Search and compare product listings for Motor Insurance from specialty market providers here While Government reforms are underway to help tackle some...

What’s the difference between automated driving and ADAS?

What’s the difference between automated driving and ADAS? The difference between automated driving and ADAS can be boiled down to the level of human intervention. Up to what level are drivers responsible, and from what level can cars help us? It is this threshold that separates between automated driving and ADAS. The target of ADAS is, needless to say, to increase the scene where collisions are avoidable as much as possible. For example, surveys and classification on actual collisions have been conducted at a lot of developed... [Lire la suite]

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5

Waymo and Tesla, Same Goals Different Paths to Level 5 Waymo and Tesla both have the same goal toward fully L5 driverless self driving cars, but they differ in approach from a design and engineering philosophy. Elon Musk relies on computer vision systems that use a combination of ultrasonic, radar and camera devices. Waymo on the other hand use a very fundamental device among driverless car makers and that is LiDAR. Elon believes Tesla can rely on it’s sophisticated hardware with AI software while Waymo implements LiDAR at the... [Lire la suite]

futuristic AR to your bike helmet with the Argon Transform

futuristic AR to your bike helmet with the Argon Transform Motorbike riders have been clamoring for an augmented reality (AR) enabled bike helmet for years, hence the long-running and infamous Skully debacle. But now Singapore-based startup Whyre have come up with a simple way to make any bike helmet smart, using an attachment which can overlay AR information on a helmet’s visor. They showed off the Argon Transform, as its known, at CES 2019 this year. The Argon Transform is a dual-camera system which works by... [Lire la suite]

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]
