TELE-OPERATED DRIVING

TELE-OPERATED DRIVING Since the 80’s, research on the subject of “Tele-Operated Vehicles” has been increasing significantly. In addition to the early successes of the EU-Project PROMOTHEUS from the 90’s, the competitions of the U.S. Department of Defense (Darpa Challenges) have left a mark on the public perception. After the Institute of Automotive Technology devoted itself as part of a research topic from the DFG-Collaborative Research Center, it can be stated as a summary that autonomous driving is possible, but only in certain and...

Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry?

Self-driving Cars Will Create 2 Petabytes Of Data, What Are The Big Data Opportunities For The Car Industry? Earlier I showed how Ford is driving in the right direction with big data, but basically the entire automotive industry should take advantage of the benefits of big data. Especially the automotive industry, where there are many moving parts that can be improved with sensors for data collection. When sensors within cars are combined with data from satellite navigations such as TomTom and traffic... [Lire la suite]

APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK

APPLE’S SECRETIVE SELF-DRIVING-CAR PROJECT HITS A ROADBLOCK The tech giant has reportedly laid off dozens of employees amid a strategy “reboot” for Project Titan. The battle to build a self-driving car, the biggest, richest tech giants are falling behind. While Tesla and Uber are racing toward getting a fully autonomous vehicle to market—on Sunday Tesla announced a new update to its self-driving software, while Uber is expected to launch its first fleet of experimental self-driving cars in Pittsburgh any day...

Autonomous buses hit the road in Switzerland

Autonomous buses hit the road in Switzerland Switzerland has joined a growing number of places around the world exploring the potential of electric autonomous buses, with a pair of driverless shuttles now ferrying passengers around the city of Sion as part of a two-year trial. Other autonomous buses being tested out across the globe include the EZ10 in California and Singapore, the Navia also in Singapore, and the IBM-powered Olli in Washington DC that can even talk to its passengers en route. ...

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars

Google driverless car division invents technology for automatically detecting police cars   Google is creating sensors that will enable its driverless cars to automatically detect police vehicles in the area, documents have indicated. Self-driving cars will be installed with technology that can identify approaching police cars and trigger an alert so that Google's vehicles can move out of the way or pull over to be questioned. In a US patent filing, the internet... [Lire la suite]

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to coincide with the... [Lire la suite]

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match

Why Drones and Self-Driving Cars Make a Great Match Drones and self-driving cars are two of the hottest topics in technology, and in some ways are made for each other. While autonomous cars can "see" all around them, their sensors are limited to a certain distance, whereas drones can scout obstacles and trouble far ahead.

On the Road to Driverless

On the Road to Driverless Differential GNSS+INS for Land Vehicle Autonomous Navigation Qualification By Gilles Boime, Emmanuel Sicsik-Paré and John Fischer Land-vehicle autonomous navigation requires centimeter-level qualification tools to enable confidence build-up for delivery to open-road traffic insertion. External positioning sensors over a dedicated road section can be replaced with an embedded high-accuracy, highly responsive epoch-by-epoch differential GNSS receiver coupled with an inertial navigation system. The... [Lire la suite]
