Advantages and challenges of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems)

Advantages and challenges of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) Advanced Driver Assistance systems, when managed correctly, can significantly improve driver safety. Whilst technology cannot ever be completely relied upon to improve safety, it can significantly help to encourage better behaviour and avoid potential road hazards. However, ADAS has developed and become available on the market with such speed that many fleet drivers, operators, dealers, and insurers are left with challenges surrounding implementation;...

ADAS technology contributes to 32% rise in vehicle repair costs

ADAS technology contributes to 32% rise in vehicle repair costs Thatcham has formed a working group with vehicle manufacturers to urgently address spiralling repair costs associated with collision avoidance advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). According to statistics from the Association of British Insurers (ABI) from Q3 2016, average vehicle bills have increased by 32% over the last three years to £1,678. Andrew Miller, Thatcham chief technology officer, said that while ADAS may not account for the entire increase, it is... [Lire la suite]

Use Case of computer vision ADAS system (RoadNex free space detection) : automatic predictive braking

Use Case of computer vision ADAS system (RoadNex free space detection) : automatic predictive braking NEXYAD made some tries of using their module RoadNex for predictive braking. RoadNex is a computer vision based module for road detection : . detection of drivable area borders and detection of free space (drivable area surface) :   The idea is that RoadNex is NOT and obstacle detector, but ifever the drivable area is going thinner or smaller, thenthere is a chance that an obstacle should be detected. It means that RoadNex... [Lire la suite]

ADAS already proving the UBI case

ADAS already proving the UBI case Technology’s role in insurance data gathering, explored by Robert Gray. ADAS features are becoming more commonplace on new vehicles rolling off production lines and while the systems function to help drivers navigate more safely, it’s unclear just how much visibility insurance carriers have on the performance of these next generation enhancements. “Most insurers are happy to give discounts for new features that are proven to reduce their costs but when systems are new such as many ADAS options,...

ZF introduces 2 new ADAS features for trucks

ZF introduces 2 new ADAS features for trucks ZF Friedrichshafen has unveiled two new advanced driver-assistance features designed to help truck drivers avoid collisions. The Evasive Maneuver Assist (EMA), which the Germany-based automotive supplier developed in cooperation with US vehicle control systems specialist Wabco, automatically steers tractor-trailer combinations around dangerous areas. ZF’s Highway Driving Assist (HDA) offers a combination of lane keeping and adaptive cruise control for trucks. Both technologies make... [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. ADAS and autonomy now and future 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...

What is ADAS Technology and How is it Contributing to Increased Vehicle Repair Costs?

What is ADAS Technology and How is it Contributing to Increased Vehicle Repair Costs? According to the Association of British Insurers (ABI), vehicle repair costs have increased by as much as 32% in the last three years. Thatcham—the UK’s version of the U.S.’s Insurance Institute for Highway Safety—released a study that cites increased complexity of vehicle materials, the rising cost of spare parts and advanced technology as possible reasons for the sharp increase. However, one major culprit that they cannot deny is the use of ADAS... [Lire la suite]

Making Advanced Driver Assistance Systems work for fleets

Making Advanced Driver Assistance Systems work for fleets Autonomous cars and similar new technologies are on the brink of changing our world. Much debate has focussed on their potential benefits and the social issues they may cause. However, are the new technologies being introduced too quickly? In the latest Brake blog; Jeremy Rochfort, National Sales Manager at Autoglass®, says many fleets are struggling to adapt to the rapid rate of change and emphasises the need for safety to be maintained as the main priority.   ...

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... [Lire la suite]

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think As excitedly as we talk about it, you’d think the promise of fully autonomous vehicles is right around the bend, just another few miles and we’ll pull into our destination. In truth, we’re not there yet, and a few sceptics even suggest we’ll never get there — too many bumps in the road ahead. As engineers, we know that we’ll get to the holy grail of autonomous driving. The key questions are how long will it take, what’s the best route and how much will it cost? Let’s pull out... [Lire la suite]
