One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place

One in five car fleets don’t have ADAS checks in place Fleet knowledge of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) systems and how to ensure they are correctly used to enhance driver safety is failing to keep up with industry adoption of the technology.   Autoglass research of 250 British fleet managers found that just over a third (34%) of the vehicles in car and van fleets have some ADAS-enabled safety features, such as autonomous emergency braking and lane deviation warnings. In total 29% of all car fleets and 40% of all... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety Imagine being able to warn drivers of upcoming dangers on the road before they arise, all the while capturing this data to inform a broader driver monitoring and improvement program. What was once a futuristic idea is now reality thanks to the convergence of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and telematics. ADAS were designed to supplement a driver’s ability to operate their vehicle safely on a day-to-day basis.  Typically an ADAS system will use... [Lire la suite]

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart

Here's how A.I. is about to make your car really smart The number of intelligence (A.I.) systems used in infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) systems will jump from 7 million in 2015 to 122 million by 2025, according to a new IHS Technology report. IHS's Automotive Electronics Roadmap Report found the install rate of A.I.-based systems in new vehicles was just 8% in 2015, and the vast majority were focused on speech recognition, according to IHS. However, that number is forecast to rise to 109% in... [Lire la suite]

GOOGLE'S SELF-DRIVING CAR COMPANY IS FINALLY HERE WHEN STEVE MAHAN was a kid in the 1960s, his mother would sometimes wake him in the early hours of the morning to watch the hours of television coverage preceding the launch of the Mercury space missions. "We would hear about all of the preparations, all of the technology, everything that led up to these moments," Mahan says. "And then we would count down 'till you finally got to zero and ignition, and one of those rockets begins bellowing fire and smoke, and slowly begins to... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car ADAS Stands for Safety Of these three elements, safer cars are the most important to many car consumers. Automakers devote millions of dollars to developing and promoting safety features, which help differentiate their vehicles and can generate sales. Now that features such as seatbelts, airbags and crumple zones have become as common as cupholders, safety innovations are growing more complex. An example of this is the rapidly expanding category of safety features known as... [Lire la suite]

What will you do with the data from ADAS?

What will you do with the data from ADAS? Advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy trucks employ active braking and other technologies to avoid or reduce the severity of crashes like rear-end or loss-of-control accidents. Now common in some form in the latest passenger cars, ADAS are also expected to be the building blocks of self-driving vehicles in the future. (Photo: Aaron Marsh/ Fleet Owner) During a broadly represented roundtable discussion this week on advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy... [Lire la suite]
