Driverless Cars Threaten to Crash Insurers’ Earnings

Driverless Cars Threaten to Crash Insurers’ Earnings The insurance industry has a $160 billion blind spot: the driverless car. Car insurers last year hauled in $200 billion of premiums, about a third of all premiums collected by the property-casualty industry. But as much as 80% of the intake could evaporate in coming decades, say some consultants, assuming crucial breakthroughs in driverless technology make driving safer and propel big changes in car ownership. As the threat approaches, U.S. insurance executives are spending... [Lire la suite]

Survey of Pedestrian Detection forAdvanced Driver Assistance Systems

Survey of Pedestrian Detection for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs), and particularly pedestrian protection systems (PPSs), have become an active research area aimed at improving traffic safety. The major challenge of PPSs is the development of reliable on-board pedestrian detection systems. Due to the varying appearance of pedestrians (e.g., different clothes, changing size, aspect ratio, and dynamic shape) and the unstructured environment, it is very difficult to cope with the...

Mercedes vs. Google: How two competing visions are racing to bring driverless cars to market

Mercedes vs. Google: How two competing visions are racing to bring driverless cars to market DETROIT — Two competing visions could determine how you first experience a driverless car. Traditional automakers like Mercedes and Toyota already make vehicles equipped with systems that keep cars within their lanes, apply the brakes or park by themselves. Their plan is to gradually automate more functions of driving until, perhaps by 2025, some cars will be fully capable of driving themselves. But Google, Alibaba, Baidu and other... [Lire la suite]

After riding in Uber's self-driving car, I think Tesla will have some serious competition

After riding in Uber's self-driving car, I think Tesla will have some serious competition We got behind the wheel of Uber's self-driving car, and it's making us a little nervous for Tesla. First, some context: Uber invited us down to Pittsburgh to try out the driverless car that it's letting a select few hail in the city starting Wednesday. The cars are in no way fully autonomous, which is why a driver and engineer will sit up front during the pilot. But it's also a big milestone for driverless tech. Sure, people have gotten...

The Creator of Google’s Self-Driving Car Now Competes with It

Robotics pioneer Sebastian Thrun is building an open-source autonomous car.   If Sebastian Thrun’s third self-driving-car project is as influential as his first two, we’ll be tearing up our driver’s licenses sooner than anyone expected. As a robotics professor at Stanford, Thrun won the Pentagon’s 2005 contest for self-driving vehicles that fired the starting gun in the race to commercialize the technology. He then established and led Google’s car project, which has racked up more autonomous miles than any competitor. The one... [Lire la suite]
