Driving Force - A Swedish Startup Aims To Solve The Mapping Problem In The Driverless Car Era

There was a time - and it wasn’t that long ago - when I found my way around the UK capital by using a book called London A to Z. When I wanted to find a particular street, I would look it up in the index, ascertain the grid reference and then flick through to the relevant page of the guide, where a map would be waiting for me. Today, of course, I’m much more likely to check out the street on Google Street View before I leave the house and then, once I’ve set off, use one of the map apps on my smartphone to guide me from the nearest...

Self-driving car timeline for 11 top automakers

Self-driving car timeline for 11 top automakers A company by company examination of public investments by leading car makers and statements from their top executives makes it clear that most car companies are betting self-driving technology is inevitable, and they’re all jumping in with investment and initiatives. With billions of dollars in R&D and acquisitions, there’s plenty of fodder for media hype, but there haven’t been many concerted efforts to answer fundamental questions such as: What do companies like Ford, GM,...

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans In a little over two years, a fleet of driverless cars will make its way from Oxford to London, completing the entire journey from start to finish without human intervention, including on urban streets and motorways. Organisers of the government-backed project, announced on Monday, still expect to have a human in the driving seat. But as the cars communicate, update on hazards, and automatically react, is the time coming when a human driver is not just redundant but an... [Lire la suite]

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars?

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars? When you're sitting in the driver's seat at 60mph on a rain-lashed motorway, covering your eyes would normally be a dangerous, if not downright suicidal move. Putting on a virtual reality headset, obscuring the view of the road altogether, might seem even crazier. But that's exactly what I did recently. To start with, I was looking at a computer simulation of the motorway in front of me. Then the road disappeared altogether, the car took off, and I began flying through an alien... [Lire la suite]

DEEP LEARNING FOR ONBOARD APPLICATIONS: HIDDEN TRAP

DEEP LEARNING FOR ONBOARD APPLICATIONS: HIDDEN TRAP Now Deep Learning is used in onboard detection and pattern recognition applications. NEXYAD for instance uses Deep Learning in RoadNex (road detection without need of markings + detection of free space), and ObstaNex (obstacles detection). But if you do not analyse your INDUSTRIAL project in detail, you may have bad surprises : everone thinks he/she knows that the more numerous the training examples, the most accurate the KPIs. Let's say you used 1 billion km to train and... [Lire la suite]

An Autonomous Car Roadmap for Suppliers

An Autonomous Car Roadmap for Suppliers Autonomous vehicles, with their promising pilot programs and enormous potential, make headlines in business and technology news every day. Self-driving cars and trucks promise to dramatically change the economics of nearly every industry, and it seems likely that eventually many people will no longer feel the need to own a car or even know how to drive. However, the path to this driverless future is more complex than a first glance might suggest. Fully autonomous cars are likely to remain a... [Lire la suite]

Telematics and ADAS: Ready for take off

Telematics and ADAS: Ready for take off Susan Kuchinskas explores why the market for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) may finally be ready for prime time. Drivers don't necessarily know how to drive. The 1.2 million annual traffic accident deaths each year attest to that. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which can help prevent injury, death, and property damage, are already available. But now the time may be ripe for them to take off. The most common ADAS technologies are lane departure warning and/or... [Lire la suite]
