'Personal Flying Machine', Backed By Google Co-Founder, On Sale This Year

'Personal Flying Machine', Backed By Google Co-Founder, On Sale This Year   WASHINGTON:  A Silicon Valley "flying car" start-up, Kitty Hawk, reportedly backed by Google co-founder Larry Page, released a video Monday of its airborne prototype and announced plans for deliveries of a "personal flying machine" this year. "Our mission is to make the dream of personal flight a reality. We believe when everyone has access to personal flight, a new, limitless world of opportunity will open up to them," said a statement on... [Lire la suite]

No Driving Required: What Automated Vehicles Mean For Our Future

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are The Next Big Thing in the tech industry. It might sound a little like a farfetched science fiction movie, but think back to those landline locked days when phones were used merely for necessary communication. Who could have envisioned a world in which we all hold the internet in our hands? Yet in 10 years that has become our reality, and it looks as if the same will be true for driverless cars. Google, Uber, and Tesla - to name a few - are already developing and testing prototypes, and some autonomous... [Lire la suite]

ADAPTIVE EYES - DRIVER DISTRACTION AND INATTENTION PREVENTION THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND BEHAVIOUR-BASED SAF

ADAPTIVE EYES - DRIVER DISTRACTION AND INATTENTION PREVENTION THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS AND BEHAVIOUR-BASED SAFETY Technology pervades our daily living, and is increasingly integrated into the vehicle – directly affecting driving. On the one hand technology such as cell phones provoke driver distraction and inattention, whereas, on the other hand, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) support the driver in the driving task. The question is, can a driver successfully adapt to the ever growing technological... [Lire la suite]

HMI FOR ELDERLY AND DISABLED DRIVERS TO GET SAFELY REAL-TIME WARNINGS AND INFORMATION WHILE DRIVING

HMI FOR ELDERLY AND DISABLED DRIVERS TO GET SAFELY REAL-TIME WARNINGS AND INFORMATION WHILE DRIVING Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and In-Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS) are growing in importance within vehicle on-board telematics. However, most automotive industries focus mainly on the needs of average driver cohort, thus the needs of other particular driver cohorts are in many cases overseen. Provision of in-vehicle Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)-based services in conjunction to the ADAS, needs... [Lire la suite]

MOBILITY FOR THE ELDERLY - OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS : Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

MOBILITY FOR THE ELDERLY OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems : description

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems : description Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is used to describe active safety systems on a vehicle that can identify safety-critical situations and take action, either automatically or by sending a warning to the driver.  ADAS systems have developed fast, thanks in part to sensing technology; cameras, radar and laser technology referred to as lidar. This technology is also helping the development of automated and driverless vehicles. A limited amount of ADAS is mandated... [Lire la suite]

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ?

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ? A successful test flight has been carried out on a prototype ‘flying car’ created by a company in Germany. The two-seater prototype, created by Munich-based firm Lilium, is capable of vertical take-off and landing and transitions to conventional wing-borne flight. Lilium hopes the vehicle could be used for urban air taxi services  One thing is sure : it is much easier to automate a flying car than a driving car ... so who will this race of driverless transportation ? ...

Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system

Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system This week, Tesla announced that all Tesla vehicles produced in their factory – including Model 3 – will have the improved sensors for full self-driving capability. Beginning with vehicles manufactured in late 2014, all new Tesla Model S vehicles come equipped with a camera mounted at the top of the windshield, forward looking radar, and ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers. Triggered by the deadly accident in this... [Lire la suite]

One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place

One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place Fleet knowledge of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems and how to ensure they are correctly used to enhance driver safety is failing to keep up with industry adoption of the technology.   Autoglass research of 250 British fleet managers found that just over a third (34%) of the vehicles in car and van fleets have some ADAS-enabled safety features, such as autonomous emergency braking and lane deviation warnings. In total 29% of all car fleets and 40% of all... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety Imagine being able to warn drivers of upcoming dangers on the road before they arise, all the while capturing this data to inform a broader driver monitoring and improvement program. What was once a futuristic idea is now reality thanks to the convergence of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and telematics. ADAS were designed to supplement a driver’s ability to operate their vehicle safely on a day-to-day basis.  Typically an ADAS system will use... [Lire la suite]
