Apple has hired Google’s head of search and artificial intelligence

Credit : Steve Jennings Yesterday, Google SVP of Engineering in charge of search and artificial intelligence John Giannandrea announced his departure from the company. Now the reason for that departure is clear: he's been hired by Apple to lead the company's "machine learning and A.I. strategy," reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook. Giannandrea joined Google in 2010 as part of the company's acquisition of Metaweb, the company behind Freebase, a community-driven database of data and information that was eventually leveraged to...

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles   Much like the infamous flying car, people have been dreaming of cars that can do the driving for them for nearly a century. While their aerial brethren are still largely mired in the conceptual stage, the technology to put self-driving cars on the road is already here. Of course, there are still questions of legislation, liability and ethics to consider, but almost every major automotive company currently has a self-driving car either... [Lire la suite]

Waymo CEO: Self-Driving Tech Not to Blame for Tesla Death

As controversy swirls around the death of a Model X driver last month, the head of Alphabet Inc.’s self-driving car unit is drawing distinctions between his company’s technology and Tesla Inc.’s Autopilot. Wei Huang, 38, died March 23 when his sport utility vehicle using the driver-assistance system Autopilot collided with a highway barrier in Mountain View, California, and caught fire. Computer logs recovered from the vehicle showed he didn’t have his hands on the steering wheel for six seconds before the crash, according to a Tesla... [Lire la suite]

Developing a Driverless Vehicle

Developing a Driverless Vehicle Are near-zero vehicle collisions a possibility with the advent of autonomous vehicle technology? With the amount of research being done today, it could be a reality sooner rather than later. Imagine a crash-free society, where human error is taken out of the driving equation. Vehicles would function as robots, equipped with lasers, radar, camera sensors, and GPS systems. They would travel from Point A to Point B with a near-zero chance of a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians crossing the... [Lire la suite]

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT Architectures of Autonomous Driving systems use to be feed forward open loop chains that are supposed to give a good solution to any problem. Inputs come from sensors that are fusionned in order to bring a good situation understanding. Then a decision making system sends what to do to actuators. This works fine, but of course, whatever the number of validation scenarios, there will always exist cases where the glabal system is not adapted to the situation. ... [Lire la suite]

Now California's DMV can allow fully driverless car testing

Credit: Waymo Automakers can now start testing fully driverless cars on California's roads. According to the state DMV's new regulations that became effective on April 2nd, it can now issue three types of autonomous vehicle testing permits. The first kind is the original one it approved years ago, which needs a driver behind the wheel, while the other two could pave the way for the release of Level 4 to 5 autonomous vehicles. See, the second type of permit it can dole out will allow automakers to test fully... [Lire la suite]

Widening the Horizons of Autonomous Driving with Advanced Driver Assistance Technology

Widening the Horizons of Autonomous Driving with Advanced Driver Assistance Technology   As urbanization and population ageing continues, traffic accident reduction, alleviation of traffic congestion and reduction of environmental load have become important topics not only for the automotive industry but for society as a whole. Recently, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) has emerged as a milestones in the pursuit of these objectives, and as the functions that make up ADAS are becoming increasingly widespread, fully...

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles

The underrated role of HMI in ADAS and autonomous vehicles The recent Autonomous Vehicle interior design symposium held in Novi, gave me some new insights into the important and often under-rated role that HMI plays in the acceptance of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology. Why HMI is important – “People universally dislike unpredictability and ambiguity” - #Chris Rockwell / Lextant. To trust the system – people always need to know how the vehicle will behave in a given situation and near future. The HMI system... [Lire la suite]
