The future of motor insurance How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market

The future of motor insurance How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market For the automotive industry, relatively little has changed over the past three decades – until now. New driver assistance technologies and connected services are ushering in a whole new world of mo - toring. In this new world, the driver hands over ever greater responsibility for his or her driving decisions to the vehicle. On the road today there are already cars with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lane-keeping assist or... [Lire la suite]

Cars With Advanced Safety Systems

Cars With Advanced Safety Systems Detailed list of cars with features that help drivers avoid or mitigate collisions Need a new car? Then consider one with active safety systems. Manufacturers are building cars with systems that can help you avoid or mitigate a crash in all sorts of situations, such as closing in on another car too quickly, changing lanes into an unseen car in a blind spot, or simply backing out in a busy parking lot. Key active safety systems include: Automatic emergency braking (AEB): Brakes... [Lire la suite]

Advanced driver-assistance systems: Challenges and opportunities ahead

Advanced driver-assistance systems: Challenges and opportunities ahead Semiconductor companies can help take ADAS applications to a new level—provided that they are ready to embrace change. Demand for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)—those that help with monitoring, warning, braking, and steering tasks—is expected to increase over the next decade, fueled largely by regulatory and consumer interest in safety applications that protect drivers and reduce accidents. For instance, both the European Union and the United... [Lire la suite]

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Semi-Autonomous Cars Compared! Tesla Model S vs. BMW 750i, Infiniti Q50S, and Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Autonomous driving—what the high-minded call artificial intelligence and what we call real brainlessness—may not be as vile as we originally feared. One DeLorean DMC-12 directed by a Stanford University engineering crew can perform perfect opposite-lock, tire-cooking, hands-off donuts at will for as long as the rubber lasts. Lead professor Chris Gerdes explained the rationale underlying this class project, timed to coincide with the... [Lire la suite]

SafetyNex driving risk estimation during driving : anticipation of danger

SafetyNex driving risk estimation during driving : anticipation of danger SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, during driving (real time). On the following figure, you can see risk rising when approaching a stop sign with an inappropriate car speed : Now with a slower speed profile : And finally the "good" safe speed profile : This estimation is computed INSIDE the local device (inside the car). Current implementation is on smartphones (IOS and Android), then computing of risk is completely done INSIDE the... [Lire la suite]
