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]

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems + Telematics = Improved Driver Safety Imagine being able to warn drivers of upcoming dangers on the road before they arise, all the while capturing this data to inform a broader driver monitoring and improvement program. What was once a futuristic idea is now reality thanks to the convergence of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and telematics. ADAS were designed to supplement a driver’s ability to operate their vehicle safely on a day-to-day basis.  Typically an ADAS system will use... [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]

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]

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]

Riders acceptance of advanced rider assistance systems

Riders acceptance of advanced rider assistance systems The development of assistive systems and intelligent transport systems (ITS) plays an important role for improving the safety of powered two-wheelers (PTWs). Assistive systems for cars are well known and increasingly popular but for PTW riders the development of Advanced Rider Assistance Systems (ARAS) and On-Bike Information Systems (OBIS) has not progressed far enough yet. Estimates suggest that population-wide deployment of ARAS could reduce crashes by up to 40% (Lenné et al.,... [Lire la suite]

Fleet Management Trends: What 2017 Will Bring to Automotive Industry

Fleet Management Trends: What 2017 Will Bring to Automotive Industry It’s been a month since we said goodbye to 2016 that has given us Tesla 3, Uber’s self-driving fleet in Pittsburg, and the NHTSA autonomous car guidelines. Now we are all wondering what 2017 will bring to the table. Below you may find some considerations that, as many experts believe, will shape the coming year for fleet managers and automotive industry as a whole. For convenience purposes, we have divided them into three groups. ENVIRONMENT AND SAFETY ... [Lire la suite]

The deployment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in Europe

The deployment of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems in Europe Introduction Road transport is an essential service in society, but the burden of traffic crashes and Pollution is immense. European data show that road accidents in the EU countries cause about 250,000 seriously injured people every year, with 28,000 fatalities in 2012 (Kearns & Kidd, 2013). US data in addition, illustrate that automobile crashes led to 34,080 fatalities in 2012 (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2013), where about 90% of the... [Lire la suite]
