2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM

2018 SELF-DRIVING SAFETY REPORT by GM You might think it looks like any other vehicle, but the Cruise AV was built from the start to operate safely on its own, with no driver. We engineered safety into the vehicle in every single step of design, development, manufacturing, testing and validation. Our self-driving vehicle is the result of intensely focused development, and countless hours of real-world testing and validation. It doesn’t drink and drive, doesn’t text and drive, doesn’t get upset, doesn’t get tired, never gets... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars need humans less and less, California data shows

Self-driving cars need humans less and less, California data shows A Cruise self-driving car rides on 11th Street in San Francisco in 2017. The General Motors subsidiary logged many more autonomous miles last year. The robot cars test-driving on California roads seem to need their human overseers less and less. The state on Wednesday released reports showing how many miles the companies testing self-driving cars in California logged last year, and how often their engineers had to take control of the vehicles. For... [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...

How to log sensor data in ADAS applications

How to log sensor data in ADAS applications The road to autonomous driving is built on Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and new applications focused on safer driving environments for drivers, passengers, and pedestrians. It’s an engineering environment comprised of forward looking machine vision cameras, video sensors, radar, and light detection and ranging (LIDAR) sensors. These systems produce streams of raw video data – much of it need in duplicate or multiple copies for machine vision, viewing, parallel processing... [Lire la suite]

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone  Panoramic movement (the most complex for any detection algorithm) with smartphone in hand (so calibration must be very robust as heigth and angle of camera is changing all the time). The goal of this free space detection is to detect as more drivable surface as possible (including sidewalks if not too high, including security area, etc ...). Indeed, the "lane" borders are detected by a borders detection algorithm (different from free space). ... [Lire la suite]

Self-Driving Cars Are Coming to Serve You

Self-Driving Cars Are Coming to Serve You Auto companies are planning to launch autonomous vehicles into the service industry before selling them to consumers Based on some of the announcements and demonstrations we've seen at CES 2018, the first self-driving car most consumers encounter may be delivering a pizza. But that's not the only job autonomous car developers are exploring for future fleets. Think self-driving delivery pods for companies like Amazon and robo-taxis that will take you to your destination with minimal to no... [Lire la suite]

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars

Flying Cars vs. Self-Driving Cars There are many similarities in the technical challenges that need to be addressed when building any autonomous vehicle, whether it’s designed to travel in the air, on the ground, or underwater. But there are key differences as well—different technologies that represent the “big rocks” that need to be overcome—and it is these differences that inform the content and structures of our two advanced smart transportation programs: the Flying Car Nanodegree program, and...

PUNY HUMANS STILL SEE THE WORLD BETTER THAN SELF-DRIVING CARS

PUNY HUMANS STILL SEE THE WORLD BETTER THAN SELF-DRIVING CARS A CONFIDENCE BOOSTER for you, puny human: The machines don’t have you beat. Yet. Yes, the autonomous car is coming, and fast. Tesla delivered the first of its much-anticipated Model 3s last week, complete with the Autopilot feature that allows the cars to drive themselves on well-marked highways. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class can conquer a roundabout on its own. Companies like Google, General Motors,... [Lire la suite]

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race?

Alphabet Vs Tesla: who will win the self-driving car race? More and more companies are investing in self-driving technology and for a lot of people, this can be a great piece of news. The focus here is rather simple: people want to have fast and reliable driverless cars that will help them stay away from accidents. But as you know, right after Tesla added its self-driving update to its cars, some people already experienced accidents. So, the technology is still in its infancy. But since that day, things have evolved quite a bit.... [Lire la suite]
