Velodyne’s latest LIDAR lets driverless cars handle high-speed situations

Velodyne’s latest LIDAR lets driverless cars handle high-speed situations Self-driving cars from Alphabet’s Waymo are currently cruising the streets of suburban Arizona, navigating around with no human at the ready to take the wheel should something go wrong. It’s some of the most advanced testing we’ve seen so far, reaching what’s know as Level 4 autonomy. These cars can operate without any human input, but only under certain conditions and on certain roads. Velodyne, one of the leading manufacturers of laser sensor for... [Lire la suite]

Are Flying Cars Coming to the Skies?

Since the very first science fiction hit the shelves, the world has fantasized about flying objects. For nearly a century, books, radio dramas, movies, and television shows have depicted flying cars. And the most famous flying car to date? Probably Doc Brown’s flying DeLorean – the time machine from the movie franchise Back to the Future. The movie’s second installment (originally set in the year 2015) introduced the concept of flying cars for every family. Of course, this is just fiction. The real question is, how close are...

Waymo’s driverless taxi service will open to the public soon

Waymo’s driverless taxi service will open to the public soon Waymo is working on an autonomous taxi fleet, modeled after the pilot program it currently offers outside of Phoenix. The big difference here is that once fully launched, Waymo's service won't have a driver behind the wheel. Additionally, the company will up its fleet of self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans from 100 to 500. As you'd imagine, the entire ride-hailing process will be handled via a mobile app. While the initial service area will be... [Lire la suite]

How to log sensor data in ADAS applications

How to log sensor data in ADAS applications The road to autonomous driving is built on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and new applications focused on safer driving environments for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. It’s an engineering environment comprised of forward looking machine vision cameras, video sensors, radar, and light detection and ranging (LIDAR) sensors. These systems produce streams of raw video data – much of it need in duplicate or multiple copies for machine vision, viewing, parallel processing... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars Explained

The age of autonomous driving is upon us. Automakers are making the tech-tastic promise of self-driving cars a reality. From street ready auto-drive systems to beta-tests of fully automated vehicles, the industry is driving towards a future where humans no longer sit behind the wheel. Most players in this space are ushering in this era through incremental innovation. The “levels” of innovation are based on a six-part classification system published in 2014 by the Society of Automotive Engineers International, an automotive... [Lire la suite]

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone  Panoramic movement (the most complex for any detection algorithm) with smartphone in hand (so calibration must be very robust as heigth and angle of camera is changing all the time). The goal of this free space detection is to detect as more drivable surface as possible (including sidewalks if not too high, including security area, etc ...). Indeed, the "lane" borders are detected by a borders detection algorithm (different from free space). ... [Lire la suite]
