VOLVO Group vision of Intelligent Truck

Enhancing safety Transport is increasing and safety is becoming even more important. Ninety percent of accidents are caused by driver error. So to handle difficult traffic situations in the future our researchers are working to make vehicles smarter than ever before, helping the driver to avoid potentially dangerous situations. Today's Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) include, for example, warning systems and driver awareness support. In most cases the driver is simply warned when something is wrong. Tomorrow's...

NHTSA rules that AI can be sole driver of Google’s self-driving cars

Highway Administration ruling means steering wheel, pedals not needed. credit photo Google   The US government has cleared the way for Google to create a self-driving car that doesn't also have a human driver inside the vehicle that can take over if necessary. In this setup, the autonomous driving software itself would be the vehicle's legal "driver"; none of the human passengers would require a driving licence. In November last year, Google submitted a proposed design to the US National Highway Traffic... [Lire la suite]

Boston Consulting Group : 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 accidents in the United States are caused by driver error, the lack of... [Lire la suite]

The rise of safety innovations in intelligent mobility (Deloitte)

The rise of safety innovations in intelligent mobility In the years since Karl Benz invented the modern auto-mobile in 1885, energy and safety have emerged as two long-standing themes, central to the automotive industry.1 With respect to energy, the increasingly urgent challenge has been to reduce the impact of CO2 emissions on the environment and to ameliorate resource depletion, either by using less fuel or through alternative energy sources. We have seen the emergence of a series of “next generation” vehicles, including... [Lire la suite]

A Roadmap to Safer Driving Through Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

A Roadmap to Safer Driving Through Advanced Driver Assistance Systems SEPTEMBER 29, 2015by Xavier Mosquet, Michelle Andersen, and Aakash Arora CATEGORIES: AUTOMOTIVE Every year, more than 3.9 million people are injured in motor vehicle accidents in the US—and more than 33,000 are killed. The cost to society totals roughly $910 billion annually, according to federal estimates. Yet safety technologies on the market today could sharply reduce the number and severity of motor vehicle accidents. These... [Lire la suite]

Tech Briefs of NASA on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

Tech Briefs of NASA on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) enhance vehicle systems for safety by helping a driver avoid collisions through new technology implementations. In some cases, the systems take over control of the vehicle. ADASs can help automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate GPS and traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert drivers to other cars or dangers, keep drivers in the correct lane, and show what is in blind spots. ADAS... [Lire la suite]
