Are Government Officials Souring On Automotive Autonomy?

Credit : Ford Motor Company Thanks to the incredibly lax and voluntary guidelines outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, automakers have had free rein to develop and test autonomous technology as they see fit. Meanwhile, the majority of states have seemed eager to welcome companies to their neck of the woods with a minimum of hassle. But things are beginning to change after a handful of high-profile accidents are forcing public officials to question whether the current approach to self-driving cars is the... [Lire la suite]

2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM

2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM You might think it looks like any other vehicle, but the Cruise AV was built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver. We engineered safety into the vehicle in every single step of design, development, manufacturing, testing and validation. Our self-driving vehicle is the result of intensely focused development, and countless hours of real-world testing and validation. It doesn’t drink and drive, doesn’t text and drive, doesn’t get upset, doesn’t get tired, never gets... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry

Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry There’s a saying about life that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. The same can be said of the next decade as the transportation industry navigates its way through the transition toward autonomous technologies. As it does so, there’s likely to be great upheaval, according to panelists who spoke at Lytx’s annual User Group Conference this year in San Diego. In the first part of this two-part article, we...

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles

Driverless Cars - The Race to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles   Much like the infamous flying car, people have been dreaming of cars that can do the driving for them for nearly a century. While their aerial brethren are still largely mired in the conceptual stage, the technology to put self-driving cars on the road is already here. Of course, there are still questions of legislation, liability and ethics to consider, but almost every major automotive company currently has a self-driving car either... [Lire la suite]

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really?

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really? Self-driving cars are supposed to be our salvation, drastically reducing the 1.3 million road fatalities worldwide each year by replacing humans with robots who can do precision piloting and never get distracted, drowsy or drunk. So why did a self-driving Uber SUV being tested in Tempe, Arizona, strike and kill a woman March 18 without so much as hitting the brakes? The accident will only drive more anxiety about autonomy given that 63 percent of Americans... [Lire la suite]

Today’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are gradually evolving into full autonomous vehicle systems.

Today’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are gradually evolving into full autonomous vehicle systems. The hype and overblown expectations continue. And the auto companies along with the many OEM and technology suppliers are collectively spending billions of dollars to create the first practical self-driving (SD) cars. Good progress is being made. Analyzing this effort to create the first automated vehicles (AVs), it is clear what must happen. The challenges are mostly technical, but there are major... [Lire la suite]

Why the Rise of Self-Driving Vehicles Will Actually Increase Car Ownership

Why the Rise of Self-Driving Vehicles Will Actually Increase Car Ownership It’s been a long time coming. For years Waymo (formerly known as Google Chauffeur) has been diligently developing, driving, testing and refining its fleets of various models of self-driving cars. Now Waymo is going big. The company recently placed an order for several thousand new Chrysler Pacifica minivansand next year plans to launch driverless taxis in a number of US cities. This deal raises one of the biggest unanswered questions about autonomous... [Lire la suite]

AI should help increasing road safety for robot taxi allowing to put them in function soon

AI should help increasing road safety for robot taxi allowing to put them in function soon Robot taxis are under testing in many cities such as Phoenix Arizona. Globally it works but the issue is still the rate of accident. Human driver has an accident in average about every 70 000 km and there are about 3 deads every billion km. This very high performance of human driver makes it difficult to automate driving, especially in urban traffic where road infrastructure characteristics are very complex. This explain why tests long more... [Lire la suite]

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex The company NEXYAD showed to its partners and customers at CES 2018 in Las Vegas the RoadNex road detection system running on a regular smartphone (using CPU and camera of the smartphone). RoadNex detectes two things, independently : . borders of the lane : borders may be road markings, other cars, construction area signs, pedestrians, bicycle, ... . free space : part of the world ahead that is flat and drivable...

2 Key Ways Robotaxis Can Entice Humans (& Get Them To Ditch Their Cars)

Credit: NHTSA There’s a common claim that autonomous vehicles will definitely take over the market and we humans will essentially stop driving ourselves places (except to the extent that some of us still keep horses to ride on). There’s an often combined claim that people will give up auto ownership and use robotaxis instead. Then there’s the perhaps equally common response: “nuh-uh.” Or: “I don’t see it happening. People like driving, like being in control, and treat having a car as a status issue.” I haven’t... [Lire la suite]
