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]

How the advance of ADAS will force insurers to change their risk model

How the advance of ADAS will force insurers to change their risk model In May, both Euro NCAP and the Australasian New Car Assessment Program said they had found that low-speed autonomous emergency braking (AEB) technology leads to a 38% reduction in real-world, rear end crashes. The organisations said they'd make AEB technology a key metric in the safety rating of new vehicles. Insurers in the UK are already responding with lower rates for cars equipped with AEB. In May, Thatcham Research Group did a study in which it obtained... [Lire la suite]
