Radar and Ultrasonic Sensors Strengthen ADAS Object Detection

Radar and Ultrasonic Sensors Strengthen ADAS Object Detection According to the National Safety Council (NSC), as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. in 2016, the highest total in more than a decade. Among the main causes were speeding, driving while impaired, and texting while driving. Including the 4.6 million people injured, the total costs from medical expenses, lost wages and productivity, and property damage could exceed $432 billion. To help improve road safety and satisfy increasingly stringent... [Lire la suite]

Automotive Industry: Radar is Part of the ADAS, Autonomous Driving Revolution

Automotive Industry: Radar is Part of the ADAS, Autonomous Driving Revolution n its latest report, "Radar Technologies for Automotive 2018," Yole Développement (Yole) investigated radar’s various evolution trends as well as its ecosystem and supply chain. Yole positions radar as a key technology for automotive sensing, with an increasing penetration rate. The use of electronic components in automotive is exploding, as OEMs and Tier-1s focus heavily on the ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) to deliver safer cars and... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving cars need ground penetrating radar, says WaveSense

Self-driving cars need ground penetrating radar, says WaveSense Founded in 2017 with the vision to make self-driving navigation weather-proof, on any road and in any condition startup WaveSense sees ground-penetrating radar (GPR) as a failsafe complement to existing mapping and navigation hardware.   The pitch: current systems exclusively rely on above ground sensors like GPS, lidar and cameras to identify the exact position of the vehicle, but those can be confused and handicapped by poor visibility issues and adverse...

Why trucks are leading the way when it comes to autonomous technology

Why trucks are leading the way when it comes to autonomous technology Carmakers are making incredible advances when it comes to autonomous technology, but the first fully autonomous vehicles to hit the roads may actually be trucks, with the transport behemoths proving naturally suited to self-driving technology. Packaging Self-driving vehicles cram in an incredible amount of technology. There’s LiDAR, radar, a huge array of different cameras and other sensors, mapping and GPS and a computer that has to make sense of it all. If it’s... [Lire la suite]

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think

The future of automotive is coming faster than you think As excitedly as we talk about it, you’d think the promise of fully autonomous vehicles is right around the bend, just another few miles and we’ll pull into our destination. In truth, we’re not there yet, and a few sceptics even suggest we’ll never get there — too many bumps in the road ahead. As engineers, we know that we’ll get to the holy grail of autonomous driving. The key questions are how long will it take, what’s the best route and how much will it cost? Let’s pull out... [Lire la suite]

Baidu’s self-driving cars begin public test in Wuzhen, China

Baidu’s self-driving cars begin public test in Wuzhen, China Internet giant Baidu is fast-forwarding its own self-driving car tests with a new public trial of autonomous vehicles, including cars supplied by Chinese automakers BYD, Chery and BAIC. The public tests opened for passengers on Tuesday, and have ferried around 200 people, as of today, across a 3.16 km (around 2 miles) stretch of road in tourist destination Wuzhen, which has been “mapped with centimetre accuracy,” according to Baidu. The driverless vehicles are... [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]

Video shows Tesla’s new radar detect accident — and avoid it

Tesla’s spanking-new radar technology has apparently taken the safe-driving lesson to heart. And the evidence is startling: Check out the video of a developing accident on a Dutch roadway that was recently captured on the dashcam of a Tesla Model X. The camera captured it BEFORE the Tesla driver even knew it was coming. How? The Tesla’s Autopilot’s forward collision warning system was able to see the car in front of the car in front of the Tesla In the video embedded here, we can hear the Tesla Autopilot’s Forward Collision Warning...
