Autonomous Cars Will Require a Totally New Kind of Map

Autonomous Cars Will Require a Totally New Kind of Map AS THE VEHICLE navigated the labyrinthine streets of London and headed for the countryside of Surrey with uncommon speed, the passengers must have felt a bit unnerved. Having selected their destination, they’d relinquished control. They had no communication with the driver, but they could check their progress on a map. The map must have been reassuring, says Peter Skillman, lead designer for Nokia HERE, the maps division the Finnish communications company. Skillman... [Lire la suite]

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech?

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech? Smartphone functions and capabilities don’t necessarily translate directly to in-car electronic systems, and the two sectors have very different demands and characteristics. Vehicle manufacturers have a number of extra factors to consider, such as safety, driver distraction, and the methods with which we interact with in-car tech. These are challenges for the industry to grapple with, but from a consumer point of view these issues are perhaps of less concern. How can this be... [Lire la suite]

The future of motor insurance : How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market

The future of motor insurance : How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market For the automotive industry, relatively little has changed over the past three decades – until now. New driver assistance technologies and connected services are ushering in a whole new world of mo - toring. In this new world, the driver hands over ever greater responsibility for his or her driving decisions to the vehicle. On the road today there are already cars with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lane-keeping assist or... [Lire la suite]

Vehicle Safety Systems

Vehicle Safety Systems Road accidents are a major cause of death in industrial countries. Numerous intelligent transport systems can contribute to a possible solution. Inside the car or truck these include the advanced driver assistance systems. They support drivers to maintain a safe speed and distance, to drive within the lane, to avoid overtaking in critical situations and to safely pass intersections in an increasingly complex driving environment. Studies on the safety effects of such systems show a high... [Lire la suite]

Free space detection using the NEXYAD road detection module RoadNex (ADAS, driverless)

Free space detection using the NEXYAD road detection module RoadNex (ADAS, driverless) NEXYAD proposes a sofwtare module called RoadNex that detects : . borders of the lane (with or without road signs : white lines etc, RoadNex works even on a desert track) . free space (area in front of the car that can be considered as "drivable") Even without any obstacle detection, it is possible then to know that there is "something" on the road or not. Note : RoadNex won't make a difference between a drawing on the road and an obstacle, but... [Lire la suite]

Human factors

Human factors As more ADAS functions are added to vehicles, the need to test them grows, but much of this will be done in the virtual sphere using driver-in-the-loop simulations The increase in ADAS systems is puttingpressure on testing engineers to make sure that the technologies are robust. As in many areas of vehicle and technology development, physical testing is becoming more time-consuming, which is at odds with the need to reduce the length of programmes. That is why even ADAS systems are benefiting from the use of... [Lire la suite]

ADAS Can Lead to Higher Auto Insurance Prices

ADAS Can Lead to Higher Auto Insurance Prices New cars with crash prevention technology and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are causing auto insurance rates to rise dramatically, according to a Wall Street Journal article published April 3. The article explains that safety features such as autonomous braking, microprocessors and cameras are often located on parts of the car most prone to accidents, such as the bumper. And when these features need replacing, the cost can be five times what it would be without these... [Lire la suite]
