Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car ADAS Stands for Safety Of these three elements, safer cars are the most important to many car consumers. Automakers devote millions of dollars to developing and promoting safety features, which help differentiate their vehicles and can generate sales. Now that features such as seatbelts, airbags and crumple zones have become as common as cupholders, safety innovations are growing more complex. An example of this is the rapidly expanding category of safety features known as... [Lire la suite]

Turbulence ahead The future of general insurance

Turbulence ahead The future of general insurance General insurance, it will surprise no one to hear, is a risk-averse business. The resulting lag in innovation has led to a growing gap between customer expectations and insurers’ ability to fulfill them. The industry is now ripe for disruption. In the report Deloitte developed with The Forum, we made a bold prediction about insurance: • While retail banking will experience the most imminent effect of disruption, the greatest impact of disruption is likely to be felt in the insurance...

What will you do with the data from ADAS?

What will you do with the data from ADAS? Advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy trucks employ active braking and other technologies to avoid or reduce the severity of crashes like rear-end or loss-of-control accidents. Now common in some form in the latest passenger cars, ADAS are also expected to be the building blocks of self-driving vehicles in the future. (Photo: Aaron Marsh/ Fleet Owner) During a broadly represented roundtable discussion this week on advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot

Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot Enabling a humanoid robot to drive a car, requires the development of a set of basic primitive actions. These include: walking to the vehicle, manually controlling its commands (e.g., ignition, gas pedal and steering), and moving with the whole-body, to ingress/egress the car. In this paper, we present a sensorbased reactive framework for realizing the central part of the complete task, consisting in driving the car along unknown roads. The proposed framework provides three driving... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars: Transforming Mobility For The Elderly And People With Disabilities

Self-Driving Cars: Transforming Mobility For The Elderly And People With Disabilities The federal government recently released guidance that will hasten the roll out of self-driving cars on American roads. The roads will not be filled with driverless cars tomorrow, but these smart, efficient vehicles are already operating in some cities and they will become widespread more quickly than most drivers think. Automakers and technology companies are making significant strides towards the connected car future. New sensor and... [Lire la suite]

Auto Aftermarket Readies for Tech Advances

Auto Aftermarket Readies for Tech Advances The automotive industry is on the cusp of a revolution. Hardly a day goes by without a headline about advanced driver assistance technology and fully autonomous vehicles— and in April electric vehicle maker Tesla overtook General Motors by market capitalization. With ride-sharing platforms like Uber and Lyft, the entire business model of the transportation industry is changing. For now, at least, all that technology is having limited impact on investments in the aftermarket,... [Lire la suite]

Vehicle safety regulations and ADAS: tensions between law and technology

ADAS Safety Focus: Around View Systems Automobile safety has driven several key innovations over the years from anti-lock brakes to airbags. German automakers have been first to leverage many of the most advanced technologies to improve driver safety and the overall driving experience. For example, German vehicles were the first to offer active lane keeping assist, which introduces a vibration to the steering wheel when the driver veers from his lane. Then came side assist radar to help drivers safely change lanes. It alerts the... [Lire la suite]
