Fatigue sensor: When EPFL innovates

Fatigue and drowsy driving are often the cause of accidents of traffic. Several drowsiness detection systems already been tested in practice. EPFL innovates in this area: a student recently proposed a fatigue detection algorithm based on video the analysis of eye closure. A prototype will be tested in terms actual driving. La fatigue et la somnolence au volant sont bien souvent à l’origine d’accidents de la circulation. Plusieurs systèmes de détection de la somnolence ont déjà été testés dans la pratique. L’EPFL innove dans ce... [Lire la suite]

Lloyds Insurance Report: Overcoming obstacles for driverless cars

As well as the technical obstacles that are quickly being eliminated by manufacturers of self-driving cars, there are a few potential barriers that will delay the deployment or growth of self-driving cars, just as the ‘Red-Flag Act’ did in the 19th Century. One such obstacle is Insurance Liability. Lloyd’s of London, the insurance underwriter, has recently produced a report about how autonomous car technology will affect the insurance industry.According to the report, insurance companies will have to create new methodologies on how...

The two cultures of robocars

The conservative view sees robocars as an automotive technology. For the aggressive school, this is a computer technology, and will be developed — and change the world — at the much faster pace that computer technologies do. The conservative and aggressive approaches to robocars will clash when it comes to deciding how to measure the safety of the products and how they should be regulated. Read more : http://robohub.org/the-two-cultures-of-robocars/ Le point de vue "conservateur" voit les robocars comme une technologie automobile.... [Lire la suite]

The Massive Economic Benefits of Self Driving Cars

Why would self-driving cars even be a big deal? Let me run down some rough calculations of the benefits.First up is the most obvious: saved lives. When I hear people say that “autonomous cars won’t work” I want to ask “Compared to what?”. Because human-driven cars don’t work very well either. In 2012, there were 30,800 fatal car crashes. These crashes lead to the deaths of 22,912 drivers and passengers of cars, 4,957 on motorcycles, 4,743 pedestrians, and 726 on bicycles. So if autonomous cars worked so poorly that they killed 10,000... [Lire la suite]
