Why Intel Bought Mobileye

Why Intel Bought Mobileye "As you’ve heard me say, others predict the future. At Intel, we build it," Intel CEO Brian Krzanich wrote in a letter to employees. On Monday, Intel bought it. Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, announced it will acquire Mobileye, a leading automotive supplier of sensor systems that help prevent collisions, for $63.54 per share, which has a fully-diluted equity value of $15.3 billion and an enterprise value of $14.7 billion. The deal has left some scratching their heads such as Citron... [Lire la suite]

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents

Road detection RoadNex may help to avoid TESLA accidents Most camera-based road detection systems are based on detection of white lines. Thoses detectors are very efficient if white lines exist (it is not the case on every road in Europe) and if they are "clean" and not tricky. For instance, if you have a construction zone, you keep the white line detection on the right side, you lose it on the left side (so you may thinkthat they are erased on the left side because it happens all the time). Plots (or temporary separation wall) used... [Lire la suite]

New Pedestrian Detector from Google Could Make Self-Driving Cars Cheaper

New Pedestrian Detector from Google Could Make Self-Driving Cars Cheaper Google’s self-driving cars roam the sunny streets of Mountain View, Calif., in public but much of the technology that powers them has never seen the light of day. Yesterday, attendees at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Seattle got a rare glimpse into a new safety feature the tech giant is working on. Anelia Angelova, a research scientist at Google working on computer vision and machine learning, presented a new... [Lire la suite]

Survey of Pedestrian Detection forAdvanced Driver Assistance Systems

Survey of Pedestrian Detection for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs), and particularly pedestrian protection systems (PPSs), have become an active research area aimed at improving traffic safety. The major challenge of PPSs is the development of reliable on-board pedestrian detection systems. Due to the varying appearance of pedestrians (e.g., different clothes, changing size, aspect ratio, and dynamic shape) and the unstructured environment, it is very difficult to cope with the...

Honda's self-driving cars stop for pedestrians and avoid obstructions - and won't cost the earth

Honda's self-driving cars stop for pedestrians and avoid obstructions - and won't cost the earth This footage shows a self-driving car being developed by Honda, that the manufacturer hopes to be affordable for all. The Japanese car maker claims most of its competitors are applying pioneering driverless technology to luxury and high-end vehicles. But it wants to use it in common brands, including the Accord and the Civic. As the footage shows, the self-driving car stops for people crossing the road, moves around... [Lire la suite]

A new patent reveals how Google's self driving cars could talk to pedestrians

As Google works towards the dream of the total driverless car, one of the problems that has been cropping up is that the vehicles are, by design, very defensive drivers. This can leave them stuck at four-way intersections where a little bit of aggression is required before other cars will make space on the road. It can throw off the humans around them, who are prone to rear-ending a vehicle that stops a little too courteously. And it can result in speeding tickets for, well, driving too slow. Earlier this week Google... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving Cars and the army / La voiture autonome séduit l’armée

Evolutionary Assistance Lockheed Martin adapted this idea to military convoys and proposes an evolutionary solution of automation of various vehicles. The American company of defense finalized two kits to adapt machines already in circulation. The first one integrate electric commands to pilot the vehicle, the second is sensors' pack including a Lidar (rangefinder laser), a GPS and a dedicated computer Lockheed Martin designed several levels of intervention of this device. The first one is an assistance to the rather classic... [Lire la suite]
