Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle Mercedes-Benz showcases driver assistance systems simulator at the 2010 Canadian Internation Auto Show TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Real life safety, that's what it's all about. The Mercedes-Benz philosophy for safety is much more comprehensive than simply focusing on crash tests alone. It takes the findings from accident research into account and integrates active and passive safety systems based on more then 70... [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]

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars There are many similarities in the technical challenges that need to be addressed when building any autonomous vehicle, whether it’s designed to travel in the air, on the ground, or underwater. But there are key differences as well—different technologies that represent the “big rocks” that need to be overcome—and it is these differences that inform the content and structures of our two advanced smart transportation programs: the Flying Car Nanodegree program, and...

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets We’re as delighted as most organisations to have witnessed the proliferation of advanced driver assistance systems – or ADAS – over the last few years, contributing heavily to making our roads safer until fully autonomous vehicles and their prerequisite infrastructure arrive. New ADAS technologies are emerging all the time but core functionalities include adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Strategies for Increasing Commercial Vehicle Adoption

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Strategies for Increasing Commercial Vehicle Adoption The National Safety Council and the National Transportation Safety Board hosted a roundtable discussion July 24 on advanced driver assistance systems and how commercial fleets (heavy trucks) can increase adoption of this life-saving technology. Roundtable participants included experts in ADAS from industry, government, advocacy groups, media and academia. View the recorded webcast above. ADAS Can Save Lives    Motor... [Lire la suite]

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS for short. ADAS makes safety and marketing sense. Whether it is Daimler, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, GM, another vehicle OEM or... [Lire la suite]

Driver assistance: Coming revolution

Driver assistance: Coming revolution   The three major trends of electrification, connectivity and autonomy all have software in common, according to Thomas Gage and Jonathan Morris from Marconi Pacific   We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver...

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20%

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20% The company NEXYAD recently launched their smartphone App SafetyNex. SafetyNex analyses driving behaviour in real time and estimates the degree of adequation of this driving behaviour to road context. In the low cost implementation, context is only the road infrastructure configuration : distances, curves, intersections, functionalities of infrastructure (pedestrian crossing, school, ...) and traffic signs...

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automotive safety technology is pretty easy to wrap your head around, but advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a little harder to pin down. At this point, the debate over whether anti-lock brakes are really necessary is pretty much nonexistent, but most technologies classified as ADAS are still seen as luxuries or even amusing curiosities. The issue is that advanced driver assistance systems are systems and features that provide a driver with essential information, automate difficult or... [Lire la suite]
