Advanced Driver Assistance Systems : description

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems : description Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is used to describe active safety systems on a vehicle that can identify safety-critical situations and take action, either automatically or by sending a warning to the driver.  ADAS systems have developed fast, thanks in part to sensing technology; cameras, radar and laser technology referred to as lidar. This technology is also helping the development of automated and driverless vehicles. A limited amount of ADAS is mandated... [Lire la suite]

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ?

Will vertical take-off flying cars kill driverless cars ? A successful test flight has been carried out on a prototype ‘flying car’ created by a company in Germany. The two-seater prototype, created by Munich-based firm Lilium, is capable of vertical take-off and landing and transitions to conventional wing-borne flight. Lilium hopes the vehicle could be used for urban air taxi services  One thing is sure : it is much easier to automate a flying car than a driving car ... so who will this race of driverless transportation ? ...

Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system

Elon MUSK says that Tesla will use more than 21 sensors for advanced driver assistant system This week, Tesla announced that all Tesla vehicles produced in their factory – including Model 3 – will have the improved sensors for full self-driving capability. Beginning with vehicles manufactured in late 2014, all new Tesla Model S vehicles come equipped with a camera mounted at the top of the windshield, forward looking radar, and ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers. Triggered by the deadly accident in this... [Lire la suite]

One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place

One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place Fleet knowledge of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems and how to ensure they are correctly used to enhance driver safety is failing to keep up with industry adoption of the technology.   Autoglass research of 250 British fleet managers found that just over a third (34%) of the vehicles in car and van fleets have some ADAS-enabled safety features, such as autonomous emergency braking and lane deviation warnings. In total 29% of all car fleets and 40% of all... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety Imagine being able to warn drivers of upcoming dangers on the road before they arise, all the while capturing this data to inform a broader driver monitoring and improvement program. What was once a futuristic idea is now reality thanks to the convergence of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and telematics. ADAS were designed to supplement a driver’s ability to operate their vehicle safely on a day-to-day basis.  Typically an ADAS system will use... [Lire la suite]

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart The number of intelligence (A.I.) systems used in infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) systems will jump from 7 million in 2015 to 122 million by 2025, according to a new IHS Technology report. IHS's Automotive Electronics Roadmap Report found the install rate of A.I.-based systems in new vehicles was just 8% in 2015, and the vast majority were focused on speech recognition, according to IHS. However, that number is forecast to rise to 109% in... [Lire la suite]

GOOGLE'S SELF-DRIVING CAR COMPANY IS FINALLY HERE

GOOGLE'S SELF-DRIVING CAR COMPANY IS FINALLY HERE WHEN STEVE MAHAN was a kid in the 1960s, his mother would sometimes wake him in the early hours of the morning to watch the hours of television coverage preceding the launch of the Mercury space missions. "We would hear about all of the preparations, all of the technology, everything that led up to these moments," Mahan says. "And then we would count down 'till you finally got to zero and ignition, and one of those rockets begins bellowing fire and smoke, and slowly begins to... [Lire la suite]
