The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management

The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management Change is coming to the world of transportation as we move closer to truly connected fleets. Advanced safety features leading to full autonomy will make today's truck drivers and the roads they travel safer as the industry slowly gravitates toward driverless trucks. When it comes to ADAS, Ian Riches of Strategy Analytics says that we're in an era of democratisation of existing features: technologies such as traffic-jam assistance, adaptive cruise control and fully autonomous...

On-road assessment of in-vehicle driving workload for older drivers: Design guidelines for intelligent vehicles

On-road assessment of in-vehicle driving workload for older drivers: Design guidelines for intelligent vehicles  There has been recent interest in intelligent vehicle technologies, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) or in-vehicle information systems (IVISs), that offer a significant enhancement of safety and convenience to drivers and passengers. However, the use of ADAS- and IVIS-based information devices may increase driver distraction and workload, which in turn can increase the chance of traffic accidents.... [Lire la suite]

Aftermarket Add-Ons Will Make Any Car Smarter, for a Price

Aftermarket Add-Ons Will Make Any Car Smarter, for a Price When we talk about driverless cars, we're often starting with the concept of a whole-package model — such as Google's now famous laser-and-sensor prototype — one that's already navigating selected routes in California. But there's another frontier in the technology-driven space of advanced driving systems, and it's starting to make inroads in the aftermarket. Witness the emergence of add-ons such as Cruise Automation's RP-1 radar-based advanced driver assist... [Lire la suite]

A Driver Face Monitoring System for Fatigue and Distraction Detection

A Driver Face Monitoring System for Fatigue and Distraction Detection Driver face monitoring system is a real-time system that can detect driver fatigue and distraction using machine vision approaches. In this paper, a new approach is introduced for driver hypovigilance (fatigue and distraction) detection based on the symptoms related to face and eye regions. In this method, face template matching and horizontal projection of top-half segment of face image are used to extract hypovigilance symptoms from face and eye, respectively.... [Lire la suite]
