Four Reasons Why Drones, Not Driverless Cars, Are The Future Of Autonomous Navigation

Four Reasons Why Drones, Not Driverless Cars, Are The Future Of Autonomous Navigation Last Wednesday, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced a new advisory committee on autonomous vehicles. The committee’s mission: develop recommendations for how automated technology can transform the way we move people and goods, on our roads and railroads and in our airspace. Thinking about autonomous vehicles holistically is to be applauded. Yet automation on land still seems to dominate the conversation.... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars Are Going to Beat Up on Trains, Too

Self-Driving Cars Are Going to Beat Up on Trains, Too One reason it’s so irresistible to speculate about what self-driving cars will do to our lives is that there aren’t any around yet to show us how wrong we are: The prototypes from Google, Uber, and others are tantalizingly functional (and the feds have officially cleared a lane ahead for them, regulation-wise), but real-deal full autonomy remains safely tucked in the future. Much of the speculation has revolved around how autonomous vehicles (or... [Lire la suite]

Amazon patents highway network to stop self-driving cars crashing

Amazon patents highway network to stop self-driving cars crashing   Amazon has been awarded a patent for a technology that would enable driverless cars and trucks to navigate reversible lanes. The patent, which was originally filed in November 2015 and granted yesterday, reveals that the company is working on not only driverless cars but the infrastructure that would support them. It deals with the problem of how autonomous vehicles would navigate reversible lanes, which are typically used in US... [Lire la suite]

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents Most camera-based road detection systems are based on detection of white lines. Thoses detectors are very efficient if white lines exist (it is not the case on every road in Europe) and if they are "clean" and not tricky. For instance, if you have a construction zone, you keep the white line detection on the right side, you lose it on the left side (so you may thinkthat they are erased on the left side because it happens all the time). Plots (or temporary separation wall) used... [Lire la suite]

Nissan Autonomous Vehicle Tech : ProPilot

Nissan Autonomous Vehicle Tech : ProPilot Nissan’s new Serena, set to go on sale in Japan in late August, will come equipped with the company’s ProPILOT autonomous drive technology that’s designed for highway use in single-lane traffic. With ProPILOT, the vehicle’s accelerator, brakes, and steering are controlled based on information captured through a mono camera equipped with advanced-image processing software. The ProPILOT camera can quickly recognize, in three-dimensional depth, preceding vehicles and lane markers, according... [Lire la suite]

IMPLEMENTING HUMAN FACTORS WITHIN THE DESIGN PROCESS OF ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS)

IMPLEMENTING HUMAN FACTORS WITHIN THE DESIGN PROCESS OF ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS (ADAS) The emerging trend in driver support systems is aimed at reducing requirements placed on the driver. By equipping vehicles with sensors, navigation and motion planning, the driving task is shared between human actors and the supporting assistance systems. Ultimately, by adding and improving cognition and control techniques, this could lead to autonomous vehicles in which the driving task is controlled by the vehicle and the... [Lire la suite]
