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]

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20%

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20% The company NEXYAD recently launched their smartphone App SafetyNex. SafetyNex analyses driving behaviour in real time and estimates the degree of adequation of this driving behaviour to road context. In the low cost implementation, context is only the road infrastructure configuration : distances, curves, intersections, functionalities of infrastructure (pedestrian crossing, school, ...) and traffic signs...

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 or... [Lire la suite]

Intelligent Drive: Next-generation driving assistance systems

Intelligent Drive: Next-generation driving assistance systems Mercedes-Benz's highly advanced assistance and safety systems enhance safety, comfort and driver relief to new levels. Active Brake Assist is fitted as standard. It is able to warn the driver of an imminent collision, provide optimum support with emergency braking and, if necessary, also autonomously apply the brakes. In addition to slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles, it can also detect pedestrians crossing in the danger zone ahead of the vehicle. Likewise... [Lire la suite]

The future of motor insurance How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market

The future of motor insurance How car connectivity and ADAS are impacting the market For the automotive industry, relatively little has changed over the past three decades – until now. New driver assistance technologies and connected services are ushering in a whole new world of mo - toring. In this new world, the driver hands over ever greater responsibility for his or her driving decisions to the vehicle. On the road today there are already cars with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) such as lane-keeping assist or... [Lire la suite]
