Using the NEXYAD road detection (RoadNex) to make obstacles detection more robust

The detection of obstacles on the road, or even recognition of those obstacles, has become an important issue for the next few years, in order to propose to the driver: . Smart Systems for driving assistance : ADAS . Delegation (partial at first, later full) of the driving task, to go step by step to the so-called autonomous vehicle NEXYAD developed a vision-based obstacle detection system (ObstaNex) that aims to offer an alternative to the current reference product on the market (MobilEye). We detail the general principles... [Lire la suite]

How a driverless car sees the road by Chris Urmson

Statistically, the least reliable part of the car is ... the driver. Chris Urmson heads up Google's driverless car program, one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver's seat. He talks about where his program is right now, and shares fascinating footage that shows how the car sees the road and makes autonomous decisions about what to do next.   More about the google car self driving car project : http://www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/

The Safety Truck Could Revolutionize Road Safety

Have you ever found yourself driving behind a semi-trailer truck? If you’re on a single-lane highway or road, it can be a nightmare. Even though the truck is driving relatively slowly, you cannot overtake it due to its size, and because you cannot see what is happening in front of the truck.  However, Samsung has developed a solution that may make this problem a thing of the past. The Safety Truck consists of a wireless camera attached to the front of the truck, which is connected to a video wall made out of four exterior... [Lire la suite]

Bosch makes emergency braking possible using just a video sensor

credit Bosch Emergency braking systems are among the most effective assistance systems in the car. In Germany alone, up to 72 percent of all rear-end collisions resulting in personal injury could be avoided if all vehicles were equipped with them. Now Bosch has developed a stereo video camera with which an emergency braking system can function based solely on camera data. Normally, this would require a radar sensor or a combination of radar and video sensors. “The Bosch stereo video camera is a single-sensor... [Lire la suite]

A next step for RoadNex with the 2.1 version

Nexyad continuously working on its modules. The low-level software RoadNex for road detection has been improved, it now detects the road surface further, and it still detects separately sides of the road. Users collect more precise data in outputs. More information about this Subject : http://nexyad.net/Automotive-Transportation/?p=711
