The culprits of consumers acting as beta testers for safety critical software

Last week Tesla sent out a beta software update called "Full Self-Driving" to a select group of customers. This release is expected to comprise of improvements to the company's Autopilot – and include advanced driver-assist features designed for local, non-highway streets. While this is a remarkable engineering feat and a courageous move, it is also a dangerous one.  on October 21, the company released a beta software update to selected Tesla owners called Full Self Driving (FSD). The problem is the same as before: the name is... [Lire la suite]

Can We Speed up The Road to Full Autonomy?

    For the past few years, there’s been an unending parade of news, hype and enthusiasm about the introduction of self-driving cars with full autonomy. Autonomous vehicles promise to deliver a range of benefits, including reduced travel time, improved passenger experience and perhaps most importantly, improved safety. To be clear, it’s no longer a question of whether we will see self-driving cars en masse; it’s a question of when. But as the timeline for fully autonomous vehicles keeps getting pushed further out,... [Lire la suite]

How safe is ADAS? Euro NCAP tests automated driving technology for first time

How safe is ADAS? Euro NCAP tests automated driving technology for first time As autonomous functions and advanced driver assistance system increase their presence in vehicles, the motoring safety organization Euro NCAP has put the driving technology to the test for the first time. To highlight how safe the systems actually are, Euro NCAP performed a set of three driving scenario tests on 10 vehicles that were using ‘highway assist systems’ – functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Centering and Speed Assist Systems to...

Bosch makes emergency braking possible using just a video sensor

credit Bosch Emergency braking systems are among the most effective assistance systems in the car. In Germany alone, up to 72 percent of all rear-end collisions resulting in personal injury could be avoided if all vehicles were equipped with them. Now Bosch has developed a stereo video camera with which an emergency braking system can function based solely on camera data. Normally, this would require a radar sensor or a combination of radar and video sensors. “The Bosch stereo video camera is a single-sensor... [Lire la suite]
