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]

‘Special report: ADAS – a stepping stone to autonomous driving?’ by Automotive World

‘Special report: ADAS – a stepping stone to autonomous driving?’ by Automotive World Automotive World has published a new report, ‘Special report: ADAS – a stepping stone to autonomous driving?’ which explores the evolution of advanced driver assistance systems. Advances in radar, camera and LiDAR systems, as well as data analysis, machine learning and connectivity mean that technologies initially developed in the name of safety can now be combined to create self-driving vehicle systems. As the automotive industry... [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]

Watch Yamaha's Humanoid Robot Ride a Motorcycle Around a Racetrack

Watch Yamaha's Humanoid Robot Ride a Motorcycle Around a Racetrack Yamaha has just put a humanoid robot on one of its motorcycles and pitted it against Valentino Rossi, a professional rider. The robot didn’t win, but it’s amazing that it could ride at all. What’s striking is that the bike is unmodified: the robot is a hunched-over form on top. It senses the environment, calculates what to do, keeps the bike stable, manages acceleration and deceleration—all while factoring in road conditions, air... [Lire la suite]

Human Factors in Automated Driving

Human Factors in Automated Driving   Automated driving will fundamentally change road transportation. But the role of humans and human-system interaction need to be clearly established to ensure a smooth ride. Automated driving technology has the potential to fundamentally change road transportation and improve quality of life. If set on the right track, automated vehicles (AVs) could reduce accidents caused by human errors, increase traffic flow efficiency, increase comfort by allowing the driver to perform alternative...

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT Architectures of Autonomous Driving systems use to be feed forward open loop chains that are supposed to give a good solution to any problem. Inputs come from sensors that are fusionned in order to bring a good situation understanding. Then a decision making system sends what to do to actuators. This works fine, but of course, whatever the number of validation scenarios, there will always exist cases where the glabal system is not adapted to the situation. ... [Lire la suite]
