Can ADAS Put the Fun Back into Driving?

Can ADAS Put the Fun Back into Driving? Porsche doubles down on advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), but sees challenges as the complexity grows. For a company best known for the driving performance of its sports cars, Porsche doesn’t consider it a contradiction to consider the ongoing development of assisted-driving technologies as core to its strategy. In fact, the automaker is doubling down on enhanced ADAS capabilities in combination with cloud-based services and seeking—all in the pursuit of creating a better... [Lire la suite]

ADAS and Autonomous Driving Technology in Trucks and Commercial Vehicles

ADAS and Autonomous Driving Technology in Trucks and Commercial Vehicles A wide variety of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) have enjoyed impressive growth in consumer vehicles, progressing from being  the preserve of luxury vehicles to being offered in sub-US$500 packages by mass-market players such as Toyota. Simultaneously, the capacities of these systems have expanded, with combined functions allowing the first glimpses of automation in production vehicles. At the same time, however, the market for commercial ADAS... [Lire la suite]

Radar and Ultrasonic Sensors Strengthen ADAS Object Detection

Radar and Ultrasonic Sensors Strengthen ADAS Object Detection According to the National Safety Council (NSC), as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. in 2016, the highest total in more than a decade. Among the main causes were speeding, driving while impaired, and texting while driving. Including the 4.6 million people injured, the total costs from medical expenses, lost wages and productivity, and property damage could exceed $432 billion. To help improve road safety and satisfy increasingly stringent... [Lire la suite]

Advanced driver-assistance systems: Challenges and opportunities ahead

Advanced driver-assistance systems: Challenges and opportunities ahead Semiconductor companies can help take ADAS applications to a new level—provided that they are ready to embrace change. Demand for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)—those that help with monitoring, warning, braking, and steering tasks—is expected to increase over the next decade, fueled largely by regulatory and consumer interest in safety applications that protect drivers and reduce accidents. For instance, both the European Union and the United... [Lire la suite]

Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones

Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones Here is the demo of RoadNex free space detection on a regular smartphone. Free space is detected in real time. On this version, "distant  sidewalks" are integrated into free space (it is an option) because sidewalks without pedestrians may be a option to avoid accident if it is not possible to brake as short as need and is the street is full of users. No need for a NVIDIA heavy computing architecture, no need for a MOBILEYE chip, etc ... Only the... [Lire la suite]

Self-Riding Motorcycle Helps ADAS, Autonomous Vehicle Testing

Self-Riding Motorcycle Helps ADAS, Autonomous Vehicle Testing The combination of rapid acceleration and extreme maneuverability means motorcycles present a particular challenge for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). A new self-driving motorcycle co-developed by AB Dynamics (Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire, England) promises to allow ADAS and autonomous systems to be tested under much more challenging and representative conditions (Fig. 1). Figure 1: AB Dynamics’ riderless motorcycle retains the full performance potential... [Lire la suite]

Artificial intelligence enters ADAS

Artificial intelligence enters ADAS Road traffic holds many complex situations in store - situations that could possibly overtax a conventional driver assistance system. In a joint project with Technical University Darmstadt (Germany), automotive supplier Continental has now investigated the use of machine learning in such systems. The "trustworthiness" of the AI plays an important role. In the fourth round of the Proreta research project, the partners Continental and TU Darmstadt developed a machine-learning vehicle...

Artificial Intelligence Systems for Autonomous Driving On the Rise, IHS Says

Artificial Intelligence Systems for Autonomous Driving On the Rise, IHS Says As the complexity and penetration of in-vehicle infotainment systems and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) increases, there is a growing need for hardware and software solutions that support artificial intelligence, which uses electronics and software to emulate the functions of the human brain. In fact, unit shipments of artificial intelligence (AI) systems used in infotainment and ADAS systems are expected to rise from just 7 million in 2015 to 122... [Lire la suite]
