ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption

ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption Now there is a buzz about telematics devices and onboard smartphone Apps, even Dashcams, with applications to fleet management, motor insurance pricing, etc. Features are geolocation, predictive maintenance, eco-driving scoring, driving risk assessment ... All those features may bring a Return On Investment (ROI), but in the long term only. And long term (a few years) is not easy to predict. It is one reason why we hear so much but we see few real large scale deployments. ... [Lire la suite]

Who is responsible when a self-driving car kills someone?

Who is responsible when a self-driving car kills someone?   An Uber-owned Volvo in autonomous mode struck and killed a pedestrian. The vehicle had a human driver behind the wheel when the tragedy occurred.  This incident brings a sudden urgency to the moral quandary that ethicists have been discussing since before self-driving cars were a reality: Whose fault was this death?  Read more : https://mashable.com/2018/03/22/self-driving-car-fatality-uber-liability/?europe=true#L.5xeH1O7Pqk

Autonomous Car Crashes: Who — or What — Is to Blame?

Autonomous Car Crashes: Who — or What — Is to Blame? The promise of driverless vehicle technology to reduce road fatalities hangs in the balance now as never before. Two recent deaths involving Uber and Tesla vehicles using driverless systems have raised the debate on safety to levels that threaten to significantly delay or derail adoption of the technology.   Uber has temporarily halted tests of self-driving cars after the latest crash, and so have Toyota and graphic chips manufacturer Nvidia, whose artificial...

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DRIVING RISK YOU TAKE AND ACCIDENT : THE "S" CURVE THEORY

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DRIVING RISK YOU TAKE AND ACCIDENT : THE "S" CURVE THEORY Let's say in a manufacture there is a very dangerous machine that may grind up your hand. If you are 10 km away from the machine, risk is "very" low. If you are 1 km away from the machine, risk is the same. If you are 10 m away from the machine ... risk is still very low ... but if you come closer (let's say 10 cm), suddenly risk becomes high ! This is not linear. In road safety, the Artificial Intelligence algorithm SafetyNex estimates 20 times per second... [Lire la suite]

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really?

Just How Safe Is Driverless Car Technology, Really? Self-driving cars are supposed to be our salvation, drastically reducing the 1.3 million road fatalities worldwide each year by replacing humans with robots who can do precision piloting and never get distracted, drowsy or drunk. So why did a self-driving Uber SUV being tested in Tempe, Arizona, strike and kill a woman March 18 without so much as hitting the brakes? The accident will only drive more anxiety about autonomy given that 63 percent of Americans... [Lire la suite]

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many accidents such as recent UBER accident

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many automous car accidents such as the recent UBER accident We all saw videos of the UBER VOLVO accident. The dashcam video shows that visibility conditions were very poor and that the pedestrian is dressed in black (pullover) and crosses a road at night without any light and out of pedestrian crossing areas. This attitude is pure suicade and you wouldn't teach your children to behave this way. But even if this pedestrian shouldn't have been in the... [Lire la suite]
