Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking

Telematics Lays the Foundation for Autonomous Trucking Current trucking technology such as telematics and fleet management solutions are key factors in the autonomous trucking revolution that could reshape the logistics industry. Industry analysts IHS Automotive estimate that sales of autonomous vehicles could reach 60,000 per year by 2035, or about 15 percent of Class 8-weight segment sales, according to a report from the American Transportation Research Institute. However, that does not take into account... [Lire la suite]

Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry

Autonomous Vehicle Essentials You Need to Know Part Two: Impact on Drivers, Fleets and the Industry There’s a saying about life that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. The same can be said of the next decade as the transportation industry navigates its way through the transition toward autonomous technologies. As it does so, there’s likely to be great upheaval, according to panelists who spoke at Lytx’s annual User Group Conference this year in San Diego. In the first part of this two-part article, we...

General Motors to roll out fleet of self-driving taxis by 2019, ahead of Ford, Uber, and Waymo

General Motors to roll out fleet of self-driving taxis by 2019, ahead of Ford, Uber, and Waymo On Thursday, General Motors (GM) executives said the company plans to deploy a large-scale fleet of driverless taxis in large cities by 2019—making it among the first autonomous car developers to provide a timeline to their efforts, The Wall Street Journal reported. While Ford, Waymo, Uber, and other auto and tech companies have been testing autonomous cars, taxis, and trucks, most have avoided naming a date for official... [Lire la suite]

Developing a Driverless Vehicle

Developing a Driverless Vehicle Are near-zero vehicle collisions a possibility with the advent of autonomous vehicle technology? With the amount of research being done today, it could be a reality sooner rather than later. Imagine a crash-free society, where human error is taken out of the driving equation. Vehicles would function as robots, equipped with lasers, radar, camera sensors, and GPS systems. They would travel from Point A to Point B with a near-zero chance of a collision with other vehicles, pedestrians crossing the... [Lire la suite]

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, and alerts driver when risk increases too much, letting time toslow down and avoid accident. NEXYAD has been developing this module that is already under deployment for car insurance and professional fleets (decrease the accident rate because driver is alerted and can avoid some accidents).SafetyNex is also under integration into ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and Autopilots because for those...

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20%

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20% The company NEXYAD recently launched their smartphone App SafetyNex. SafetyNex analyses driving behaviour in real time and estimates the degree of adequation of this driving behaviour to road context. In the low cost implementation, context is only the road infrastructure configuration : distances, curves, intersections, functionalities of infrastructure (pedestrian crossing, school, ...) and traffic signs...

The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management

The effect of ADAS & automation on fleet management Change is coming to the world of transportation as we move closer to truly connected fleets. Advanced safety features leading to full autonomy will make today's truck drivers and the roads they travel safer as the industry slowly gravitates toward driverless trucks.   ADAS and autonomy now and future When it comes to ADAS, Ian Riches of Strategy Analytics says that we're in an era of democratisation of existing features: technologies such as traffic-jam assistance,...

What will you do with the data from ADAS?

What will you do with the data from ADAS? Advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy trucks employ active braking and other technologies to avoid or reduce the severity of crashes like rear-end or loss-of-control accidents. Now common in some form in the latest passenger cars, ADAS are also expected to be the building blocks of self-driving vehicles in the future. (Photo: Aaron Marsh/ Fleet Owner) During a broadly represented roundtable discussion this week on advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, in heavy... [Lire la suite]

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle The French High-Tech startup NEXYAD recently presented their module SafetyNex. SafetyNex is a real time driving risk assessment system. Of course, Driving Risk makes everyone think of car insurance and fleet management. And it is a natural application (deployment has already started). But it is important to note that Driving Risk is also a key notion for ADAS and Driverless car. Indeed, Driving Risk happens when there is no adequation between Driving Behaviour and Diving...
