Startups Aim to Get a Piece of the Driverless Car

Startups Aim to Get a Piece of the Driverless Car You don’t have to be a tech giant to teach a vehicle to drive itself. Big names like Tesla and Google grab all the attention when it comes to developing autonomous vehicles. But, very quietly, startups have also been getting into the field. These small companies are taking advantage of easily accessible software and plummeting equipment prices to carve out a niche in this emerging industry—retrofitting existing vehicles that do specialized jobs. Thilo Koslowski, a senior... [Lire la suite]

Design of Context-aware Systems for vehicles using complex system paradigms

Design of Context-aware Systems for vehicles using complex system paradigms Pervasive computing technology such as sensors, actuators, wireless networks and processors are commonly used to assist humans to perform tasks. Contextawareness systems have become a growing area of study for pervasive and ubiquitous research communities. Unfortunately context-aware systems have not been thoroughly used to assist driving tasks. Intelligent Transport System (ITS) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are growing research fields that... [Lire la suite]

Caltrans, Volvo Test Truck Platooning on Busy Los Angeles Freeway

Caltrans, Volvo Test Truck Platooning on Busy Los Angeles Freeway The convoy of three Volvo semi-trucks zipping along Southern California’s busy 110 Freeway hauling cargo containers looked like other big rigs that ply that busy stretch of highway daily — except that they were only 50 feet apart and there were robots controlling the pedals in two of the vehicles. The journey Wednesday was a joint demonstration of truck platoon technology by the California Department of Transportation, local agencies, Volvo Group of North America... [Lire la suite]

The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management

The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management Change is coming to the world of transportation as we move closer to truly connected fleets. Advanced safety features leading to full autonomy will make today's truck drivers and the roads they travel safer as the industry slowly gravitates toward driverless trucks. When it comes to ADAS, Ian Riches of Strategy Analytics says that we're in an era of democratisation of existing features: technologies such as traffic-jam assistance, adaptive cruise control and fully autonomous...

On-road assessment of in-vehicle driving workload for older drivers: Design guidelines for intelligent vehicles

On-road assessment of in-vehicle driving workload for older drivers: Design guidelines for intelligent vehicles  There has been recent interest in intelligent vehicle technologies, such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) or in-vehicle information systems (IVISs), that offer a significant enhancement of safety and convenience to drivers and passengers. However, the use of ADAS- and IVIS-based information devices may increase driver distraction and workload, which in turn can increase the chance of traffic accidents.... [Lire la suite]
