a validation database for artificial vision-based ADAS, soon available for free on the internet

a validation database for artificial vision-based ADAS, soon available for free on the internet The French High-Tech SME NEXYAD (http://www.nexyad.com/Automotive-Transportation) is currently recording images, signals, and data to build a validation database for ADAS. Indeed, ADAS validation is a very complex task as the number of road situations is quite infinite. And the camera is a very special sensor in the sense that an image of a regular camera (8 bits per color, then 24 bits, and 2 million pixels - regular HD format) can paste... [Lire la suite]

100 Self-Driving Cars Set to Hit Sweden’s Public Roads in 2017

100 Self-Driving Cars Set to Hit Sweden’s Public Roads in 2017 Volvo just unveiled plans for the world’s first large-scale trial of self-driving cars. The ‘Drive Me’ project will see 100 autonomous vehicles take to the streets of Gothenburg, Sweden in 2017. The cars will traverse 30 miles of public roads while encountering heavy commuter traffic, pedestrians and shifting highway conditions. While “non-drivers” will be behind the wheel during standard trips, Volvo anticipates that the cars will be able to seek out... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD showed that risk of accident is not correlated to driving style

Although ntuition let people presume that risk of accident may be correlated to driving style, NEXYAD could demonstrate that this is wrong : There are quiet but dangerous drivers, and there are brutal but safe drivers. The module SafetyNex, developed by the company NEXYAD shows how it really works, and this module is the ultimate telematics solution (connected car) for onboard road safety estimation. Available on smartphones, second market electronic devices, and first market electronic devices. Examples of mappings Safety x... [Lire la suite]

Nvidia announces ‘supercomputer’ for self-driving cars at CES 2016

Do you like teraflops? By Dieter Bohn Nvidia is kicking off CES 2016 with its traditional first keynote. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang wasted no time getting to the "punchline," a new computer for cars he's calling the Drive PX2, the follow-up to last year's Drive CX. Nvidia is famous for throwing out big numbers to tout the power of their processors, and many of them were mentioned here on stage. Its processing power is supposedly equivalent to 150 MacBook Pros, all sitting in a computer that's about the size of a lunchbox. It has... [Lire la suite]

Turns Out the Hardware in Self-Driving Cars Is Pretty Cheap

  The full benefits of autonomous cars—a drastic drop in fatal crashes, more efficient driving, the chance to master Clash of Clans while commuting—are at least five years away. Automakers and tech companies must perfect software. Insurance companies have to recalculate premiums. Regulators are thinking up fresh rules. But one part of the puzzle’s been solved: the hardware. The physical elements crucial for seeing and navigating the world have been developed. Some are already in production. And they’re surprisingly cheap. The... [Lire la suite]

The key problems facing driverless cars

The key problems facing driverless cars By The Car Expert In 2020, driverless cars will no longer be a thing of the future. It will be present-day technology. But just like with any other new and advancing technology, it doesn’t come without its own obstacles it needs to face. Companies and research organisations have been conducting experiments on automating cars from as early as the 1920s, developing prototypes and trialling the vehicles out. The biggest achievement came in 2013 when four U.S states (Nevada, California,... [Lire la suite]

Who are the Biggest Names in the Driverless Car Trend ?

Who are the Biggest Names in the Driverless Car Trend? August 19, 2015, 05:22:00 PM EDT By Madeleine Johnson, Zacks.com What we traditionally think of cars-how they work and what powers them-is undergoing a dramatic change, both in aesthetic as well as functionality. Cars, once largely mechanical machines controlled by humans, are increasingly utilizing complex technology that is taking over many of the driver-related functions. Cars are now becoming driverless. By definition, an autonomous vehicle is a car that is... [Lire la suite]
