What you need to know about vehicle-to-vehicle communication

Embraced as one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in recent years, V2V is expected to improve the safety of our roads by allowing cars to communicate details like speed and GPS position to one another to help drivers avoid accidents. In December of 2016, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DoT) proposed a new regulation that would require new vehicles to be equipped with vehicle-to-vehicle, or V2V, communications.V2V is crash-mitigation technology that relies on the transmission of high volumes of data between...

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first

Driverless cars could turn the UK into Europe’s leader in autos – but only if we de-regulate first A fake suburb in Florida, complete with sidewalks, shops and parents out with their children. Huge chunks of highway given over to testing new types of machine. Tweaks to the law to get rid of side mirrors, and to allow drivers to watch a film while they are out for a spin in their new car. It may sound like the stuff of sci-fi. But in fact, these are all measures that individual American states have taken in the last few... [Lire la suite]

Automotive Technology and Human Factors Research: Past, Present, and Future

Automotive Technology and Human Factors Research: Past, Present, and Future This paper reviews the history of automotive technology development and human factors research, largely by decade, since the inception of the automobile. The human factors aspects were classified into primary driving task aspects (controls, displays, and visibility), driver workspace (seating and packaging, vibration, comfort, and climate), driver’s condition (fatigue and impairment), crash injury, advanced driver-assistance systems, external communication...
