Older Drivers’ Acceptance of In-vehicle Systems and the Effect it has on Safety

Older Drivers’ Acceptance of In-vehicle Systems and the Effect it has on Safety Drivers over the age of 65 make up the fastest growing segment of the driving population and are, in general, underrepresented in vehicle crashes due to their self-restrictive driving habits. However, as the baby-boomer generation ages into the population of older drivers, the presence of in-vehicle systems designed to counteract the physical and psychological changes of aging, could change their habits. Using a literature review to identify systems,... [Lire la suite]

Pathway to Driverless Cars: Proposals to support advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies

Pathway to Driverless Cars: Proposals to support advanced driver assistance systems and automated vehicle technologies Automated vehicle technology will profoundly change the way we travel, making road transport safer, smoother, and smarter. We are on the pathway to driverless cars, where fully automated vehicles will transport people and goods to their destination without any need for a driver. The Government wants to secure the UK’s position at the forefront of this change for the development, construction, and use of automated... [Lire la suite]

Who will dominate the future of ADAS market?

Who will dominate the future of ADAS market? The global advanced driver assistance systems market was valued at USD 22.69 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 78.19 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 28.07% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020 (Source: Mordor Intelligence). The demand for fuel-efficient vehicles along with an accelerating need for road safety systems will help to boost the global demand for ADAS significantly. Over the last few years, growing concern about automotive safety among... [Lire la suite]

Driving Towards Autonomous Cars and ADAS – The Future is Now

Driving Towards Autonomous Cars and ADAS – The Future is Now Read any automotive-related article and I’m sure it discusses autonomous cars and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)  – the benefits, the challenges and what the future may hold. More and more auto makers are moving towards autonomous developing vehicles, but many of the systems that will eventually be integrated into these vehicles to make them fully autonomous are being developed today. In fact, you probably have some of them in the car you are driving now —... [Lire la suite]

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, and alerts driver when risk increases too much, letting time toslow down and avoid accident. NEXYAD has been developing this module that is already under deployment for car insurance and professional fleets (decrease the accident rate because driver is alerted and can avoid some accidents).SafetyNex is also under integration into ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and Autopilots because for those...

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle Mercedes-Benz showcases driver assistance systems simulator at the 2010 Canadian Internation Auto Show TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Real life safety, that's what it's all about. The Mercedes-Benz philosophy for safety is much more comprehensive than simply focusing on crash tests alone. It takes the findings from accident research into account and integrates active and passive safety systems based on more then 70... [Lire la suite]

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a driver. The aim of this paper... [Lire la suite]

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets We’re as delighted as most organisations to have witnessed the proliferation of advanced driver assistance systems – or ADAS – over the last few years, contributing heavily to making our roads safer until fully autonomous vehicles and their prerequisite infrastructure arrive. New ADAS technologies are emerging all the time but core functionalities include adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot... [Lire la suite]

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS for short. ADAS makes safety and marketing sense. Whether it is Daimler, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, GM, another vehicle OEM or... [Lire la suite]
