Laser Breakthrough Could Speed the Rise of Self-Driving Cars

Google's self-driving car relies on a roof-mounted LIDAR sensor to see the world around it.   The eyes of a self-driving car are called LIDAR sensors. LIDAR is a portmanteau of “light” and “radar.” In essence, these sensors monitor their surroundings by shining a light on an object and measuring the time needed for it to bounce back. They work well enough, but they aren’t without their drawbacks. Today’s self-driving cars typically use LIDARs that are quite large and expensive. Google, for instance, used $80,000 LIDARs with...

Researcher Hacks Self-driving Car Sensors

By Mark Harris The multi-thousand-dollar laser ranging (lidar) systems that most self-driving cars rely on to sense obstacles can be hacked by a setup costing just $60, according to a security researcher. “I can take echoes of a fake car and put them at any location I want,” says Jonathan Petit, Principal Scientist at Security Innovation, a software security company. “And I can do the same with a pedestrian or a wall.” Using such a system, attackers could trick a self-driving car into thinking something is directly...

Automotive Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) Market 2015-2025 - Reportlinker Review

The Next Step Towards Autonomous, Self-Driving & Driverless Cars In many ways, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are the first step on the road to semi-autonomous or fully-autonomous self-driving and driverless vehicles. In 2015, Park Assistance, Surround-View Cameras, and Adaptive Cruise Control applications dominate the ADAS market; however, the penetration into passenger cars is relatively low despite the increasing rate of installations into the premium car segment manufacturers.Often these are fitted in isolation,...

Top misconceptions of autonomous cars and self-driving vehicles

Self-driving cars are a rapidly evolving technology which only a few years ago was still considered science fiction. In such a dynamic context, quick intuitions can be very misleading and misconceptions about the technology, its impact, and the nature of the innovation process abound. In the following we address some of the most widely held misconceptions about autonomous vehicles: Top misconceptions Driver assistance systems will evolve gradually into fully autonomous cars The first models of fully autonomous cars will be...

Toyota promises driverless cars on roads by 2020

Toyota has become the latest car manufacturer to test a driverless vehicle on a public road. The car, a modified Lexus GS, was tested on Tokyo's Shuto Expressway, where it carried out a range of automated manoeuvres. These included merging into highways, changing lanes and keeping inter-vehicular distance. Toyota said it aimed to launch related products "by around 2020", when Tokyo is due to host the Olympic Games. To read more : http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-34464450

Google’s Driverless Cars Are Cruising the Streets of California

Some say they look like koalas. Others say they’re the smiling face of the future. And if you live in California, you’re already sharing the road with them. Google had told the world that its line of itty-bitty self-driving vehicles was poised to hit the roads in summer. Well, they’re here. Last week, a few prototype vehicles started cruising around Mountain View, Calif., and the folks at Google are eager to see how the public receives them. The Next Step Although the self-driving cars are out of the garage and onto the roadways,... [Lire la suite]

Tesla’s Cars Now Drive Themselves, Kinda

Tonight, Tesla makes its cars autonomous. Well, semi-autonomous. And it did it with an over-the-air update, effectively making tens of thousands of cars already sold to customers way better. There are two things to talk about here. There’s the small story about the features and what the upgrade actually looks like and how it works. That’s a good place to start: This is the biggest change to the visual display of the Model S and X ever. There are new instrument panels, app windows are larger and take up more of the 17-inch...

Mobileye Offers Alternative Route to Google’s Driverless Future

   Ziv Aviram regularly drives part of the 42-mile (67 kilometer) stretch to Tel Aviv from Jerusalem with no hands. Gliding through traffic along Highway 1, the car slows and accelerates independently as Aviram focuses on his iPhone. The on-board chips and software that allow the chief executive officer of Mobileye NV to check e-mail and read news while his Audi A7 cruises at highway speeds will reach consumers for the first time this year, he said, declining to identify the automaker. Three more manufacturers will... [Lire la suite]

How a driverless car sees the road by Chris Urmson

Statistically, the least reliable part of the car is ... the driver. Chris Urmson heads up Google's driverless car program, one of several efforts to remove humans from the driver's seat. He talks about where his program is right now, and shares fascinating footage that shows how the car sees the road and makes autonomous decisions about what to do next.   More about the google car self driving car project : http://www.google.com/selfdrivingcar/
