Regulations for on-road testing of connected and automated vehicles: Assessing the potential for global safety harmonization

Regulations for on-road testing of connected and automated vehicles: Assessing the potential for global safety harmonization Although there is great media attention to connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) and strong public interest in the technology, it is still under development. Their deployment to the broader public will require new regulations and road traffic rules that are also under development, and there is not yet a globally harmonized approach. This paper reviews the main safety and liability issues for CAVs with a... [Lire la suite]

Tesla could beat Waymo in the race to self-driving future

Tesla could beat Waymo in the race to self-driving future Autonomous driving technology is currently in its infancy, but evolving rapidly. More companies are testing autonomous vehicles than ever. Tesla and Waymo are two prominent names competing to capitalize on the opportunity of becoming the industry leader in the self-driving future, but employ different technologies to achieve those goals. One of the major difference between Tesla and Waymo is the sensors they use for self-driving. Tesla cars relies on computer vision and... [Lire la suite]

5 reasons why autonomous cars aren’t coming anytime soon

5 reasons why autonomous cars aren’t coming anytime soon In the world of autonomous vehicles, Pittsburgh and Silicon Valley are bustling hubs of development and testing. But ask those involved in self-driving vehicles when we might actually see them carrying passengers in every city, and you’ll get an almost universal answer: Not anytime soon. An optimistic assessment is 10 years. Many others say decades as researchers try to conquer a number of obstacles. The vehicles themselves will debut in limited, well-mapped areas within...

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES

AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO RURAL COMMUNITIES The current debate around autonomous driving tends to focus on its potential impact in cities. We think that the perspective should be broader: Self-driving vehicles could be the key to reconnecting the countryside, part of the mobility solution for people living in rural areas. Rural populations are often isolated due to a lack of public transport options. Autonomous vehicles can fill the void and make a major contribution to mobility in these areas, boosting the quality...

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars

Silicon Valley is winning the race to build the first driverless cars Henry Ford didn’t invent the motor car. The late 1800s saw a flurry of innovation by hundreds of companies battling to deliver on the promise of fast, efficient and reasonably-priced mechanical transportation. Ford later came to dominate the industry thanks to the development of the moving assembly line. Today the sector is poised for another breakthrough with the advent of cars that drive themselves. But unlike the original wave of automobile innovation, the... [Lire la suite]

Designing Human-Machine Interface for Autonomous Vehicles

Designing Human-Machine Interface for Autonomous Vehicles This paper deals with Human-Machine Interface (HMI) design for autonomous vehicles. This automation level involves automated driving phases as well as transition phases where the driver has to reengage in the driving task. Each phase requires an appropriate interface to allow the driver to establish accurate situation awareness. The paper presents a methodology aiming to answer the following questions: what should be displayed, how and when? This methodology relies on the... [Lire la suite]

ELON MUSK INTERVIEW ON AUTOPILOT AND FULL SELF DRIVING

ELON MUSK INTERVIEW ON AUTOPILOT AND FULL SELF DRIVING >> Musk believes autonomous cars are worth 5 to 10X ones that aren’t. >> Elon estimates that Tesla’s fleet captures 99% of all consumer-driven autonomous miles, far more data than other manufacturer. >> Musk said because all new Teslas now ship with Full Self Driving hardware, they may appreciate in value with software updates. >> By next year, Elon believes that having a human driver in addition to Autopilot may be less safe than Autopilot by...

Emerging trends in the world of autonomous vehicles

Emerging trends in the world of autonomous vehicles The last few years have been favorable for the autonomous vehicle technology. Developing a driverless car has been a shared dream for Google, Apple, Tesla, Uber, and Lyft. For Uber and Lyft, autonomous cars are one of the means of cutting costs. However, saving big bucks are not the only benefits of autonomous cars. Factors such as lowering fuel consumption, reduce CO2 emission, and reduction in congestion are some of the major benefits of autonomous vehicles. According to a... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous vehicles: What fleets want

Autonomous vehicles: What fleets want While the public and the trucking industry continue to debate the viability of autonomous vehicles (AVs), fleet executives are clearly anticipating their arrival. A recent survey conducted by the Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) and the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) of 32 executives representing 31 fleets found that the majority expect AVs to become reality at some future point. It’s clearly a question of when, not if, says Paul Menig, CEO of consulting firm... [Lire la suite]
