10 Features We Want to See in Self-driving Cars

10 Features We Want to See in Self-driving Cars   By now, we've all seen pictures of self-driving cars, like Google's fleet of Priuses with freaky rigs on their roofs, or completely driverless cars, like Google's latest cute little guy, which doesn't even have traditional controls for humans to use. Think about this: We may someday have to explain to our grandkids what a steering wheel was. Probably at the same time we're explaining to them why we clung to our old gasoline burning engines for so long — and that's the reason... [Lire la suite]

Daimler Trucks testing ADAS using PreScan software

Daimler Trucks testing ADAS using PreScan software While most of the existing systems focus on a limited range of driving situations and use input from a single sensor (e.g. radar-based emergency braking systems or camera-based lane keeping assistance) future active safety systems will use the input of several sensors and assist drivers in highly complex traffic scenarios, thus leading the way toward automated driving. This development puts a big challenge on the Human Machine Interface (HMI). Read more... [Lire la suite]

Why Cities Aren’t Ready for the Driverless Car

Why Cities Aren’t Ready for the Driverless Car Urban planners have a lot of infrastructure work to do to make cities safe and practical for autonomous vehicles When it comes to adopting self-driving cars and trucks, the easiest part may well be building them. The far more difficult task will be maintaining our urban transportation infrastructures for autonomous vehicles to be functional, safe and practical. Consider that last year, a modified Audicompleted a 3,400-mile cross-country trip, driving itself 99% of the time. The... [Lire la suite]
