How Trust Influences Adoption: Creating Human-Centered Autonomous Vehicles

How Trust Influences Adoption: Creating Human-Centered Autonomous Vehicles   David R. Garcia, University of Central Florida   As vehicle manufacturers race to create consumer vehicles with autonomous features, there are many human factors issues that must be addressed. Namely, issues that contribute to how humans trust vehicles with autonomous features, and how this trust relates to the adoption of these types of vehicles. Choi & Ji (2015) identified the need to further research the roles system transparency,... [Lire la suite]

Will self-driving cars kill off the train?

Will self-driving cars kill off the train? Autonomous vehicles will make railways obsolete - even if new high speed routes are built, expert claims Randal O’Toole, of the libertarian Cato Institute in Washington DC, thinks commuters will choose autonomous cars over high-speed trains in 2030 Technology is predicted to feature in lots of cars in the next 15 years and mean journeys could be used for working and watching films, for example  He thinks such vehicles could be the death of the railways - even if billions of pounds...

HOW DATA SCIENCE IS DRIVING THE DRIVERLESS CAR

HOW DATA SCIENCE IS DRIVING THE DRIVERLESS CAR Google may be the first name associated with driverless cars, but they’re not the only ones interested in the technology. More importantly, it seems people have wildly different opinions on exactly how the story will play out. How much data will these cars produce? What kind of legal quandaries will we face? While the details are hazy, there is no doubt these machines will not only be available in the near future, they will soak up data like a sponge, and put that information to use... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars and Insurance

Self-Driving Cars and Insurance   HE TOPIC Each new generation of cars is equipped with more automated features and crash avoidance technology. Indeed, many of today’s high-end cars and some mid-priced ones already have options, such as blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warnings and lane-departure warnings. These will be the components of tomorrow’s fully automated vehicles. At least one car manufacturer has promised to have fully automated cars available by the end of the decade. Except that the number of crashes will... [Lire la suite]

The challenges and opportunities for ADAS stereo vision applications, part I

The challenges and opportunities for ADAS stereo vision applications, part I Cameras are the most precise mechanism available to capture accurate data at high resolution. As with human eyes, cameras capture the resolution, minutiae, and vividness of a scene with such beautiful detail that no other sensors, including radar, ultrasonic, and lasers, can match. Prehistoric paintings discovered in caves across the world are testament that pictures and paintings coupled with visual sense has been the preferred method to convey accurate... [Lire la suite]
