Physiological signal based detection of driver hypovigilance using higher order spectra

Physiological signal based detection of driver hypovigilance using higher order spectra In this work, the focus is on developing a system that can detect hypovigilance, which includes both drowsiness and inattention, using Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Electromyogram (EMG) signals. Drowsiness has been manipulated by allowing the driver to drive monotonously at a limited speed for long hours and inattention was manipulated by asking the driver to respond to phone calls and short messaging services. ECG and EMG signals along with the... [Lire la suite]

International cooperation must drive autonomous cars

International cooperation must drive autonomous cars Imagine a world where you can relax in your car, while it is driving by itself. Where elderly people can remain mobile and where your car will park itself when you tell it to. Imagine a world where we have drastically reduced the number of traffic accidents.This world may not be that far away. While the motor industry’s 120-year history is an impressive succession of innovation, we are standing before what could be the biggest quantum leap forward in automotive technology in...

Automakers choose Microsoft as connected car partner

Automakers choose Microsoft as connected car partner When Microsoft talks about mobility, our interest is the mobility of the person, not of any single device. After all, people now want their technology experience to move with them, from place to place and device to device, at home, at work, and on the move. Nowhere is this more evident than in today’s connected cars. People expect their car’s computing power to match its horsepower. And automakers are leading the way, bringing mobility solutions to their cars to meet drivers’... [Lire la suite]

Adas and autonomous vehicle : Sensor data fusion: state of the art survey

Adas and autonomous vehicle : Sensor data fusion: state of the art survey This survey is organized into three research directions driven by somewhat different research communities: (1) sensor networks, (2) robust navigation and (3) situation awareness. The current and future progress in these areas will affect security and crisis management needs as treated in [1], for instance in the areas: surveillance of environment, borders, harbors, critical infrastructure and private properties; secure transportation systems; rescue operations...

Autonomous cars can only understand the real world through a map

Autonomous cars can only understand the real world through a map In the second of our series ‘3 steps to automation’, we look at the need for a precise and trustworthy map that can be ‘read’ by the car. As we’ve seen in the first in the series, however numerous and multifarious, sensors do not make for automated cars alone. This is why HERE is developing an automated driving cloud that can work in conjunction with sensors to create bona fide self-driving cars. One aspect of this is the creation of ultra-precise, high definition... [Lire la suite]

Benchmarking advanced emergency brake systems

Benchmarking advanced emergency brake systems Rear-end collisions are the most common types of accidents. The causes range from inattentiveness when the car in front slows or stops; distractions such as mobile phones, eating or adjusting the radio; poor visibility; inadequate distance etc. While most rear-end collisions in city traffic mostly result in minor vehicle damage, collisions on the motorway often result in serious or fatal injuries.ADAC, Europe’s largest motoring organisation, has conducted extensive research into...
