Ford partners with Michigan Science Center for interactive AV experience

Ford Motor Company has partnered with the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) to educate the community on the future of transportation, creating MiSci’s first AV exhibit. Built by Ford engineers and developers working closely with MiSci, the installation resembles a vehicle of the future that guests can engage with and explore inside to learn about AVs through interactive displays and a simulation. The exhibit shows how AVs operate and make decisions without a human driver, using data that is collected through 3D maps, cameras, sensors... [Lire la suite]

Copenhagen welcomes self-driving bus

Holo launched their new pilot project with autonomous buses in copenhagen's Nordhavn district on August 3rd. Despite Covid -19 precautions, the new service had a thrilling start.   The citizens of Copenhagen can look forward to jumping on a self-driving minibus, when the seafront area Nordhavn becomes part of the large EU-funded research and innovation project AVENUE. The self-driving bus will show how new technology can connect an urban area in a safe and sustainable way. Parallel with Luxembourg, Geneva and Lyon,... [Lire la suite]

Beating Google, Tesla, this startup's self-driving truck is all set to hit Indian roads Read more at: https://economictimes.ind

Beating Google, Tesla, this startup's self-driving truck is all set to hit Indian roads While the global giants may have decided to stay away from the dusty and the pothole-ridden roads of India in their race to be hailed as the pioneers of self-driven technology; a young Bengaluru-based startup believes the chaotic, poorly-kept roads of India are ideal grounds for them to master their self-driving technology."For us, the more chaotic the roads are, the more data we get and the more trained our algorithm becomes. Indian roads are... [Lire la suite]

About ADAS (Advanced Driving Support System) and AD (Autonomous Driving)

About ADAS (Advanced Driving Support System) and AD (Autonomous Driving) ADAS (Advanced Driving Support System) is a part of a big concept of AD (Autonomous Driving).Autonomous Driving is classified into five levels according to the degree of automation,Levels 1 and 2 are positioned as "driving support", and so-called " Autonomous Driving " which the system judges is Level 3 or higher.ADAS is a "driving support function" to the last, and when a human drives a car.It is a function to support how to avoid accidents and make it...

Autonomous Vehicle Technology May Improve Safety for U.S. Army Convoys Autonomous Vehicle

Autonomous Vehicle Technology May Improve Safety for U.S. Army Convoys   U.S. Army convoys could be made safer for soldiers by implementing autonomous vehicle technology to reduce the number of service members needed to operate the vehicles, according to a new study from the RAND Corporation.   “The Army is interested in autonomous technology because if they can reduce the number of soldiers needed to run a convoy, they can keep soldiers safe,” said Shawn McKay, lead author of the study and a senior...

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]
