BMW: Driving into the automotive future with ADAS

BMW: Driving into the automotive future with ADAS The prospect of autonomous, driverless cars continue to dominate the interest in the automobile industry while a quiet transition is already altering our vehicles. The development of sophisticated driver assistance systems has transformed the driving experience altogether. We are witnessing a transition from vehicle mobility to e-mobility in vehicles. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is a promising technology to improve traffic safety, driver comfort as well as increase... [Lire la suite]

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, and alerts driver when risk increases too much, letting time toslow down and avoid accident. NEXYAD has been developing this module that is already under deployment for car insurance and professional fleets (decrease the accident rate because driver is alerted and can avoid some accidents).SafetyNex is also under integration into ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and Autopilots because for those...

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle Mercedes-Benz showcases driver assistance systems simulator at the 2010 Canadian Internation Auto Show TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Real life safety, that's what it's all about. The Mercedes-Benz philosophy for safety is much more comprehensive than simply focusing on crash tests alone. It takes the findings from accident research into account and integrates active and passive safety systems based on more then 70... [Lire la suite]

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a driver. The aim of this paper... [Lire la suite]

The car of the future isn’t a car at all

Minivans and autonomous shuttles take center stage as automakers try to understand the future of driving   This week, a subsidiary of Volkswagen called Moia unveiled a new concept vehicle in Berlin: a six-seater all-electric van. Blandly brown in color and retaining none of the flash typical of other concept vehicles, the Moia EV probably flew under the radar for most people. But what’s interesting about it is that the vehicle is designed for ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft, and more specially for carpooling. And... [Lire la suite]

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars There are many similarities in the technical challenges that need to be addressed when building any autonomous vehicle, whether it’s designed to travel in the air, on the ground, or underwater. But there are key differences as well—different technologies that represent the “big rocks” that need to be overcome—and it is these differences that inform the content and structures of our two advanced smart transportation programs: the Flying Car Nanodegree program, and...

Upstream Security reels in $9M Series A to protect connected cars

Upstream Security, a new startup founded by two cyber security industry veterans, announced a $9 million Series A today to help protect connected vehicles and eventually autonomous cars. Today, that probably means a car using a service like OnStar to connect over the internet to your manufacturer for a menu of in-car services such as automated crash detection and stolen vehicle assistance. In the future, it could involve a set of communications between cars, cloud services and a host of other technologies as we move deeper into the... [Lire la suite]

PUNY HUMANS STILL SEE THE WORLD BETTER THAN SELF-DRIVING CARS

PUNY HUMANS STILL SEE THE WORLD BETTER THAN SELF-DRIVING CARS A CONFIDENCE BOOSTER for you, puny human: The machines don’t have you beat. Yet. Yes, the autonomous car is coming, and fast. Tesla delivered the first of its much-anticipated Model 3s last week, complete with the Autopilot feature that allows the cars to drive themselves on well-marked highways. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class can conquer a roundabout on its own. Companies like Google, General Motors,... [Lire la suite]

We need to talk about autonomous vehicles and the blockchain

 The momentum behind the autonomous vehicle movement has been growing rapidly as the major technology vendors, and new players, seek to define the future of road transport.  RethinkX has estimated that by 2030, within 10 years of regulatory approval, 95% of all US passenger miles will be served by autonomous transport-as-a-service providers.  Jeff Klei, president Continental AG North America, has been quoted calculating that as many as 54 million autonomous vehicles will be on the road by 2035.  As the number of...
