The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles The recent Autonomous Vehicle interior design symposium held in Novi, gave me some new insights into the important and often under-rated role that HMI plays in the acceptance of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Why HMI is important – “People universally dislike unpredictability and ambiguity” - #Chris Rockwell / Lextant. To trust the system – people always need to know how the vehicle will behave in a given situation and near future. The HMI system... [Lire la suite]

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners

New laser technology lets driverless cars see round corners A new laser-based system could allow vehicles to ‘see’ obstacles before they come into view, scientists say.   Whether it’s a child running after a ball, a herd of cows or a broken-down car, unexpected obstacles can prove deadly to drivers. But scientists say the cars of the future might be able to anticipate such perils. A team of researchers have come up with a new laser-based system that efficiently produces images of objects that are hidden around a corner – a... [Lire la suite]

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really?

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really? Self-driving cars are supposed to be our salvation, drastically reducing the 1.3 million road fatalities worldwide each year by replacing humans with robots who can do precision piloting and never get distracted, drowsy or drunk. So why did a self-driving Uber SUV being tested in Tempe, Arizona, strike and kill a woman March 18 without so much as hitting the brakes? The accident will only drive more anxiety about autonomy given that 63 percent of Americans... [Lire la suite]

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many accidents such as recent UBER accident

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many automous car accidents such as the recent UBER accident We all saw videos of the UBER VOLVO accident. The dashcam video shows that visibility conditions were very poor and that the pedestrian is dressed in black (pullover) and crosses a road at night without any light and out of pedestrian crossing areas. This attitude is pure suicade and you wouldn't teach your children to behave this way. But even if this pedestrian shouldn't have been in the... [Lire la suite]
