Automated and Autonomous Driving Regulation under uncertainty

Automated and Autonomous Driving Regulation under uncertainty   Executive summary Many cars sold today are already capable of some level of automated operation, and prototype cars capable of driving autonomously have been - and continue to be - tested on public roads in Europe, Japan and the United States. These technologies have arrived rapidly on the market and their future deployment is expected to accelerate. Autonomous driving promises many benefits: improved safety, reduced congestion and lower stress for car... [Lire la suite]

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans

Driverless pods plot new course to overtake humans In a little over two years, a fleet of driverless cars will make its way from Oxford to London, completing the entire journey from start to finish without human intervention, including on urban streets and motorways. Organisers of the government-backed project, announced on Monday, still expect to have a human in the driving seat. But as the cars communicate, update on hazards, and automatically react, is the time coming when a human driver is not just redundant but an... [Lire la suite]

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars?

Will we ever be able to trust self-driving cars? When you're sitting in the driver's seat at 60mph on a rain-lashed motorway, covering your eyes would normally be a dangerous, if not downright suicidal move. Putting on a virtual reality headset, obscuring the view of the road altogether, might seem even crazier. But that's exactly what I did recently. To start with, I was looking at a computer simulation of the motorway in front of me. Then the road disappeared altogether, the car took off, and I began flying through an alien... [Lire la suite]

DEEP LEARNING FOR ONBOARD APPLICATIONS: HIDDEN TRAP

DEEP LEARNING FOR ONBOARD APPLICATIONS: HIDDEN TRAP Now Deep Learning is used in onboard detection and pattern recognition applications. NEXYAD for instance uses Deep Learning in RoadNex (road detection without need of markings + detection of free space), and ObstaNex (obstacles detection). But if you do not analyse your INDUSTRIAL project in detail, you may have bad surprises : everone thinks he/she knows that the more numerous the training examples, the most accurate the KPIs. Let's say you used 1 billion km to train and... [Lire la suite]

An Autonomous Car Roadmap for Suppliers

An Autonomous Car Roadmap for Suppliers Autonomous vehicles, with their promising pilot programs and enormous potential, make headlines in business and technology news every day. Self-driving cars and trucks promise to dramatically change the economics of nearly every industry, and it seems likely that eventually many people will no longer feel the need to own a car or even know how to drive. However, the path to this driverless future is more complex than a first glance might suggest. Fully autonomous cars are likely to remain a... [Lire la suite]

Overview of Retrofit Kits for Autonomous Driving

Overview of Retrofit Kits for Autonomous Driving Autonomous driving is something that’s not pnly for new cars, but a number of startups are working on developing retrofit kits that allow cars today on the road to drive autonomously. Such kits typically come with a number of additional sensors, graphic processors and the possibility to use existing vehicle components and sensors. Some of the startups signed partnerships with current automotive players. The general importer of cars from the Volkswagen group for Switzerland AMAG... [Lire la suite]

People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that

People don’t trust driverless cars. Researchers are trying to change that This October, television and web viewers were treated to an advertisement featuring basketball star LeBron James taking a ride in a driverless car. At first, James—known for his fearlessness on the court—peers in doubtfully at the vacant driver's seat and declares: "Nope." But after a short trip in the back seat, he has changed his tune. "Hey yo, I'm keepin' this!" James exclaims to friends. The ad, from computer chip–maker Intel in Santa Clara, California,... [Lire la suite]

Automated Vehicles for Safety

Automated Vehicles for Safety   Overview The continuing evolution of automotive technology aims to deliver even greater safety benefits and Automated Driving Systems (ADS) that—one day—can handle the whole task of driving when we don’t want to or can’t do it ourselves. Fully automated cars and trucks that drive us, instead of us driving them, will become a reality. These self-driving vehicles ultimately will integrate onto U.S. roadways by progressing through six levels of driver assistance technology advancements... [Lire la suite]
