How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions

How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions As long as vehicles do not provide full automation, the design and function of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) is crucial for ensuring that the human “driver” and the vehicle-based automated systems collaborate in a safe manner. When the driver is decoupled from active control, the design of the HMI becomes even more critical. Without mutual understanding, the two agents (human and vehicle) will fail to accurately comprehend each other’s... [Lire la suite]

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking There is a software component called SafetyNex that can compute onboard (and not on the cloud), in real time (and not on a back office server one week after), at each moment (i.e. 20 times per second), the risk that driver is currently taking. This driving risk is computed with anticipation. The software component is called SafetyNex, proposed by the company NEXYAD (We Save Lives). If driver is a human being, it has been shown that alerting driver a few... [Lire la suite]

5 Ways Artificial Intelligence is Impacting the Automotive Industry

5 Ways Artificial Intelligence is Impacting the Automotive Industry Finding applications of artificial intelligence in the automotive industry requires only a scant reading of news headlines. From IBM Watson’s partnership with the General Motors OnStar platform to Toyota’s $1 billion investment in AI-based self-driving technology, the marriage of AI with automotive technology has surely been consummated. It seems that every stakeholder in the automotive industry is looking for a way to capitalize on recent advances in AI technology. ... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars face type approval standards hurdle

Self-driving cars face type approval standards hurdle Audi's new A8 may be the only series production car capable of piloting itself along highways while the driver watches the on-board TV, but it may take until the end of the decade before countries can agree on how to validate and approve its Level 3 self-driving system. The German government was the first worldwide to broadly legalize self-driving cars with a new law that came into effect June 21 that allowed automated driving as long as a driver is behind...

Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot

Autonomous car driving by a humanoid robot Enabling a humanoid robot to drive a car, requires the development of a set of basic primitive actions. These include: walking to the vehicle, manually controlling its commands (e.g., ignition, gas pedal and steering), and moving with the whole-body, to ingress/egress the car. In this paper, we present a sensorbased reactive framework for realizing the central part of the complete task, consisting in driving the car along unknown roads. The proposed framework provides three driving... [Lire la suite]

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech?

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech? Smartphone functions and capabilities don’t necessarily translate directly to in-car electronic systems, and the two sectors have very different demands and characteristics. Vehicle manufacturers have a number of extra factors to consider, such as safety, driver distraction, and the methods with which we interact with in-car tech. These are challenges for the industry to grapple with, but from a consumer point of view these issues are perhaps of less concern. How can this be... [Lire la suite]

Germany approved a draft law allowing for autonomously-driving cars to be active on German streets

Germany approved a draft law allowing for autonomously-driving cars to be active on German streets GTAI has informed that Germany’s federal government has approved a draft law allowing for autonomously-driving cars to be active on German streets. Crucially within the law, responsibility for mishaps continued to rest firmly in the hands of the driver, but allows for the driver to hand control of his or her vehicle to the vehicle’s own control system in certain situations and for certain periods of time. The draft law also stipulates... [Lire la suite]

13 future car technologies for your road trip in 2020

13 future car technologies for your road trip in 2020 COMPARING THE AUTO INDUSTRY to the computer industry is like comparing two different generations of technology. We’ve got super-fast smartphones and iPods streaming Rhapsody in our pockets, but satellite radio and clunky GPS devices attached to our dashboards. Automakers are aware they’re a little behind the times, and by 2020, many are promising dashboard and safety systems as sophisticated as iPads — maybe even more so. 1. Wifi Obvious, but vital; most of the... [Lire la suite]
