No Driving Required: What Automated Vehicles Mean For Our Future

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are The Next Big Thing in the tech industry. It might sound a little like a farfetched science fiction movie, but think back to those landline locked days when phones were used merely for necessary communication. Who could have envisioned a world in which we all hold the internet in our hands? Yet in 10 years that has become our reality, and it looks as if the same will be true for driverless cars. Google, Uber, and Tesla - to name a few - are already developing and testing prototypes, and some autonomous... [Lire la suite]

MOBILITY FOR THE ELDERLY - OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS : Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

MOBILITY FOR THE ELDERLY OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a... [Lire la suite]

Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) using SafetyNex

Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) using SafetyNex Intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) is a new field of ADAS. Indeed, after deploying "reactive ADAS" (emergency braking on automatic detection), it seems interesting to give the car the ability to "understand" the road scene context and then to adapt its speed in anticipation. The aim is to minimize the number of emergency situations to face. It is exactle what a good driver does when approaching an intersection with priority to the other road : you slow down a little (and it is not... [Lire la suite]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Take Control in the Car ADAS Stands for Safety Of these three elements, safer cars are the most important to many car consumers. Automakers devote millions of dollars to developing and promoting safety features, which help differentiate their vehicles and can generate sales. Now that features such as seatbelts, airbags and crumple zones have become as common as cupholders, safety innovations are growing more complex. An example of this is the rapidly expanding category of safety features known as... [Lire la suite]

Vehicle safety regulations and ADAS: tensions between law and technology

ADAS Safety Focus: Around View Systems Automobile safety has driven several key innovations over the years from anti-lock brakes to airbags. German automakers have been first to leverage many of the most advanced technologies to improve driver safety and the overall driving experience. For example, German vehicles were the first to offer active lane keeping assist, which introduces a vibration to the steering wheel when the driver veers from his lane. Then came side assist radar to help drivers safely change lanes. It alerts the... [Lire la suite]

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS

A ROADMAP TO SAFER DRIVING THROUGH ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEMS On behalf of MEMA, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) analyzed the available ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technologies and concluded that if every vehicle on the road were equipped with them, the toll taken on society from vehicle accidents could be sharply reduced. Relatively few vehicles on the road today have these systems, however, and their penetration of the market is growing at only two to five percent annually. Since the vast majority of...

Windscreens: Fleet industry needs to work together to maximise the safety benefits of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)

Windscreens: Fleet industry needs to work together to maximise the safety benefits of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS)   There is little doubt that the introduction of ADAS into fleets can significantly improve driver safety - if managed correctly. However, the speed at which these systems have appeared on the market, and the huge range of different products available, have presented challenges for drivers, fleet operators, dealers, insurers and the vehicle aftermarket. In reaction to this, we combined forces with... [Lire la suite]

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automotive safety technology is pretty easy to wrap your head around, but advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a little harder to pin down. At this point, the debate over whether anti-lock brakes are really necessary is pretty much nonexistent, but most technologies classified as ADAS are still seen as luxuries or even amusing curiosities. The issue is that advanced driver assistance systems are systems and features that provide a driver with essential information, automate difficult... [Lire la suite]

Vehicle Safety Systems

Vehicle Safety Systems Road accidents are a major cause of death in industrial countries. Numerous intelligent transport systems can contribute to a possible solution. Inside the car or truck these include the advanced driver assistance systems. They support drivers to maintain a safe speed and distance, to drive within the lane, to avoid overtaking in critical situations and to safely pass intersections in an increasingly complex driving environment. Studies on the safety effects of such systems show a high... [Lire la suite]
