Uber’s Self-Driving Car Didn’t Know Pedestrians Could Jaywalk

Uber’s Self-Driving Car Didn’t Know Pedestrians Could Jaywalk The software inside the Uber self-driving SUV that killed an Arizona woman last year was not designed to detect pedestrians outside of a crosswalk, according to new documents released as part of a federal investigation into the incident. That’s the most damning revelation in a trove of new documents related to the crash, but other details indicate that, in a variety of ways, Uber’s self-driving tech failed to consider how humans actually...

How much testing will prove automated cars are safe?

How much testing will prove automated cars are safe? In 2016 road accidents, globally, accounted for 29,501,040 injuries while 1,045,180 people lost their lives. In America alone, according to the Federal Highway Association, over the same period 4.6 million road users were injured with approximately 40,000 fatalities, sustained over 3.2 trillion miles; equating to 1.25 fatalities and 144 injuries per 100 million miles driven. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration claims that 94% of these accidents were caused by human... [Lire la suite]

THE SCIENCE OF SELF-DRIVING CARS

THE SCIENCE OF SELF-DRIVING CARS What’s the future of personal transportation? Well, you’ll likely be spending a lot less time behind the wheel, for one. The rise of self-driving cars means that some scenes out of science-fiction flicks (think Total Recall or I, Robot) are now reality—and even more will be available soon. Cars today already include many semi-autonomous features, like assisted parking and self-braking systems. And completely autonomous vehicles—able to operate without human control—are rapidly...

Self-Driving Cars Explained

Self-Driving Cars Explained Self-driving vehicles are cars or trucks in which human drivers are never required to take control to safely operate the vehicle. Also known as autonomous or “driverless” cars, they combine sensors and software to control, navigate, and drive the vehicle. Currently, there are no legally operating, fully-autonomous vehicles in the United States. There are, however, partially-autonomous vehicles—cars and trucks with varying amounts of self-automation, from conventional cars with brake and lane... [Lire la suite]

Tesla said its cars will be self-driving by 2019. We’ve heard this before

Tesla said its cars will be self-driving by 2019. We’ve heard this before Elon Musk stood up in front of a room of investors today (April 22) to announce the era of the self-driving car had arrived—at least for Tesla. At “Autonomy Investor Day,” the Tesla CEO unveiled it had developed its own self-driving chip designed specifically for Tesla vehicles, and it would launch a “robo-taxi” service for owners of autonomous cars to pick up paying passengers.  It’s all part of an updated master plan. While Tesla’s first... [Lire la suite]

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles

Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Vehicles Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the automotive industry by storm to drive the development of level-4 and level-5 autonomous vehicles. Why do you think AI has become so popular now, though it has been around since the 1950s? Simply put, the reason behind this explosion of AI is the humongous amount of data that we have available today. With the help of connected devices and services, we are able to collect data in every industry, thus fueling the AI revolution. While... [Lire la suite]

ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SELF-DRIVING CARS

ULTIMATE GUIDE TO SELF-DRIVING CARS The debate on the timeline of fully autonomous vehicles traveling on US highways rages on, with the optimists in the industry predicting initial applications to begin as early as 2019 and the skeptics questioning whether 2035 is a realistic launch date. Experts agree that self-driving cars present the auto insurance industry with major challenges, but also with significant near-term opportunities. The greatest potential of automated vehicles in the short term will derive from the vast amounts of... [Lire la suite]

Here are Elon Musk’s wildest predictions about Tesla’s self-driving cars

Here are Elon Musk’s wildest predictions about Tesla’s self-driving cars Tesla CEO Elon Musk made a series of bold predictions today about the ability for his company’s cars to completely drive themselves. And Musk thinks it will happen sooner than most of his competitors — perhaps as soon as the end of this year. Musk made the comments at an invitation-only event for investors at Tesla’s Palo Alto-headquarters, laying out a near-future vision in which self-driving Teslas vehicles compete with the likes of Waymo, GM, and...

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]
