Google’s Driverless Cars Are Cruising the Streets of California

Some say they look like koalas. Others say they’re the smiling face of the future. And if you live in California, you’re already sharing the road with them. Google had told the world that its line of itty-bitty self-driving vehicles was poised to hit the roads in summer. Well, they’re here. Last week, a few prototype vehicles started cruising around Mountain View, Calif., and the folks at Google are eager to see how the public receives them. The Next Step Although the self-driving cars are out of the garage and onto the roadways,... [Lire la suite]

road detection for autonomous vehicule and advanced driver assistance systems

road detection is a key issue for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous véhicle (driverless car). Most artificial vision modules detect markings. Recently a French company (NEXYAD) proposed the module RoadNex that detects the borders and the surface of the drivable area on the lane. RoadNex can work on roads with markings, on roads without markings, on roads where markings are not clearly visible because they are exhausted or because vehicles hide markings (and those situations happen every day). Road Detection... [Lire la suite]
