Opposite strategies fuel driverless car development

credit photo : John F. Martin / Delphi Automotive Automakers are on two separate paths to creating self-driving cars. Some, like General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co., have enough cash reserves that they are developing their own proprietary autonomous systems in close partnership with technology companies. Others are waiting to buy off-the-shelf systems like the fully autonomous one announced by Delphi Automotive PLC and Mobileye NV, which they said Tuesday will be ready for any automaker to purchase by 2019. Both approaches have... [Lire la suite]

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a driver. The aim of this paper... [Lire la suite]

The role of HERE in developing ADAS and other automotive standards

The role of HERE in developing ADAS and other automotive standards HERE has always understood that a map is not simply a navigational tool. Back in the late 1990s, the team could see its potential above and beyond the map’s traditional remit. Take, for example, its use as a sensor in cars. Dietmar Rabel, senior product manager in the automated driving side at HERE, told us: “We created a patent in 1999 for what we call ‘Electronic Horizon’ which allows cars to ‘see around the corner’ – basically the car can adapt cruise control or...

Self-driving cars will not help the drinking driver

Self-driving cars will not help the drinking driver   There is an unexpected revolution underway in road safety. True, the highly visible community-wide programs continue, but behind the scenes there are major changes underway in how safety will be managed within road transport systems. The self-driving car (or “autonomous vehicle”) has emerged with a practical suite of technologies for more efficient, safer, and eco-friendly road travel. This emergence has been rapid: for example, the Australian... [Lire la suite]
