How Far Can Driverless Cars Take Us?

How Far Can Driverless Cars Take Us? Driverless cars and trucks—or autonomous vehicles (AV)—offer a tantalizing promise of safer and unclogged roadways. In 2017, 37,150 people died in accidents on America’s roads, reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, up sharply from 32,479 in 2011, and far worse per capita than anywhere else in the Western world. And the United States has ten of the 25 most congested cities globally, according to the Inrix transportation intelligence group. Cars that drive themselves could... [Lire la suite]

Can in-vehicle technologies help improve driver safety for seniors?

Can in-vehicle technologies help improve driver safety for seniors? The University of Iowa Aging Mind and Brain Initiative (AMBI) will partner with Toyota Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC) to study how older drivers interact with in-vehicle technology that’s designed to help improve driver safety. These technologies, including advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS), aim to help improve car safety by assisting drivers with various aspects of driving, including navigation and wayfinding, handling the...

V2X communications – LTE versus DSRC

V2X communications – LTE versus DSRC   With all the hype surrounding self-driving vehicles based on artificial intelligence (AI), image recognition and sophisticated sensors, it is easy to forget about another important interrelated technology that also promises to help revolutionise driving. It is, in fact, destined to be a critical factor in making autonomous vehicles a reality. Known by the acronym V2X, it covers both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. V2X refers broadly to a set... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Vehicles, Car Sharing, and the Urban Mobility Revolution

Self-Driving Vehicles, Car Sharing, and the Urban Mobility Revolution New automotive technologies and business models are converging to spark a transformative revolution on our city streets. It’s no longer a question of if but when self-driving vehicles (SDVs, also known as autonomous vehicles) will hit the road. Multiple parties are already at work developing autonomous-driving technologies, and the trend toward putting SDVs on the road is rapidly gaining momentum across a broad front that encompasses OEMs,...

TELEMATICS – A GAME-CHANGER IN ROAD SAFETY

TELEMATICS – A GAME-CHANGER IN ROAD SAFETY It’s no longer a secret that telematics is one of the biggest game changers in the way insurance industry functions. Telling someone to drive safely is quite meaningless, if without specifics. With telematics, insurance companies can now actually show drivers the way they operate their vehicles and what specifically they should do to improve their driving habits. Telematics enables insurance companies to monitor vehicles and their drivers. Cars fitted with telematics identify inefficient... [Lire la suite]

Now for two-wheels SafetyNex computes onboard at each moment the riding risk that the rider is currently taking

Now for two-wheels SafetyNex computes onboard at each moment the riding risk that the rider is currently taking Then it becomes the only software component that computes onboard, in real time, at each moment, the risk that the RIDER is currently taking. This new version comes after 2 years of the collaborative research project BIKER ANGEL of the National French Research Program FUI. Reminder : it is when Driving behaviour is inappropriate to Driving context that the risk appears. Contrary to what many people think : . there is... [Lire la suite]

Monetizing car data

Monetizing car data Cars generate data about how they are used, where they are, and who is behind the wheel. With greater proliferation of shared mobility, progress in powertrain electrification, car autonomy, and vehicle connectivity, the amount of data from vehicles will grow exponentially, raising a key question: How might industry players in the evolving automotive ecosystem turn car-generated data into valuable products and services? Through a comprehensive course of research – comprised of surveys, interviews, and observations... [Lire la suite]

Artificial Intelligence in Insurance – Three Trends That Matter

Artificial Intelligence in Insurance – Three Trends That Matter Change is here, more is coming. The insurance market is dominated by massive national brands and legacy product lines that haven’t substantially evolved in decades. Sound familiar? People are already placing bets. Insurance is an industry that venture capitalists consider so ripe for disruption that the founders of Lemonade, a New York-based insurtech company, raised one of the largest seed rounds in history simply by talking. It’s not just the venture... [Lire la suite]

Distraction or disruption? Autonomous trucks gain ground in US logistics

Distraction or disruption? Autonomous trucks gain ground in US logistics As logistics goes digital, profound changes are coming to industry structure, operations, and profits. In the first of a series, we examine the impact of autonomous trucks. What is happening is fairly well understood, if initially underestimated. Digitization and other technological advances are exposing the vulnerabilities in every industry, particularly retail. And now, logistics companies are starting to feel the heat. Our new research has turned up five... [Lire la suite]

The Cities Where Autonomous Vehicles Would Be Most Practical

The Cities Where Autonomous Vehicles Would Be Most Practical It’s widely assumed that it’s only a matter of time before fleets of autonomous vehicles begin crisscrossing America’s roadways. Some urban areas, though, make better markets for the new technology than others. Driving conditions, traffic patterns and demographics are just a few of the factors determining how ideal a city is for autonomous vehicles. A new report from INRIX, a Seattle-based traffic data collection and research firm, offers insight on where the... [Lire la suite]
