ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN CARS POWERS AN AI REVOLUTION IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN CARS POWERS AN AI REVOLUTION IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY   Artificial intelligence (AI) and self-driving cars are often complimentary topics in technology. Simply put, you cannot really discuss one without the other. Though AI is being implemented at rapid speed in a variety of sectors, the way in which it’s being used in the automotive industry is a hot-button issue right now. With every car manufacturer and their mother racing to develop artificial intelligence and... [Lire la suite]

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES The current debate around autonomous driving tends to focus on its potential impact in cities. We think that the perspective should be broader: Self-driving vehicles could be the key to reconnecting the countryside, part of the mobility solution for people living in rural areas. Rural populations are often isolated due to a lack of public transport options. Autonomous vehicles can fill the void and make a major contribution to mobility in these areas, boosting the quality...

Autonomous Vehicle Technology May Improve Safety for U.S. Army Convoys Autonomous Vehicle

Autonomous Vehicle Technology May Improve Safety for U.S. Army Convoys   U.S. Army convoys could be made safer for soldiers by implementing autonomous vehicle technology to reduce the number of service members needed to operate the vehicles, according to a new study from the RAND Corporation.   “The Army is interested in autonomous technology because if they can reduce the number of soldiers needed to run a convoy, they can keep soldiers safe,” said Shawn McKay, lead author of the study and a senior...

Understanding the Impact of Technology

Understanding the Impact of Technology: Do Advanced Driver Assistance and Semi-Automated Vehicle Systems Lead to Improper Driving Behavior? The ultimate goal of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) is to increase traffic safety and driving comfort. Despite their potential safety benefits, there are concerns about unintended consequences associated with intermediate levels of automation. In these scenarios, speed control and/or steering are automated, but the driver is still required to monitor traffic and be ready to resume... [Lire la suite]

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars Henry Ford didn’t invent the motor car. The late 1800s saw a flurry of innovation by hundreds of companies battling to deliver on the promise of fast, efficient and reasonably-priced mechanical transportation. Ford later came to dominate the industry thanks to the development of the moving assembly line. Today the sector is poised for another breakthrough with the advent of cars that drive themselves. But unlike the original wave of automobile innovation, the... [Lire la suite]

Designing Human-Machine Interface for Autonomous Vehicles

Designing Human-Machine Interface for Autonomous Vehicles This paper deals with Human-Machine Interface (HMI) design for autonomous vehicles. This automation level involves automated driving phases as well as transition phases where the driver has to reengage in the driving task. Each phase requires an appropriate interface to allow the driver to establish accurate situation awareness. The paper presents a methodology aiming to answer the following questions: what should be displayed, how and when? This methodology relies on the... [Lire la suite]

How telematics data is transforming car insurance

How telematics data is transforming car insurance With car insurance premiums expected to rise over the next few years, drivers are increasingly looking to technology to reduce the cost of their insurance. One technology that’s leading the way in lowering premiums is telematics. By combining telecommunications with vehicular technology, insurance companies can monitor various elements of a driver’s behavior. A GPS system and on-board diagnostics make it’s possible to record a car’s exact location, how fast it's traveling, and what’s... [Lire la suite]

A Self-Driving Freight Truck Just Drove Across the Country to Deliver Butter

A Self-Driving Freight Truck Just Drove Across the Country to Deliver Butter Plus.ai, an artificial intelligence startup in Cupertino, California, has engineered an autonomous driving system for commercial freight trucks. This week, it made the world's first cross-country trip of its kind to deliver butter to a small town in Pennsylvania. While this isn't the first time an autonomous truck has made a cross-country trip, it's likely the first time a commercial freight truck has made a real delivery like this. ... [Lire la suite]
