Why bad driving will be eliminated by 2020 - and car insurance costs will plummet

Car insurance premiums could be just a fraction of current levels in five years’ time as driverless vehicles are expected to “eliminate bad driving” by 2020. Car insurance premiums could be just a fraction of current levels in five years’ time as driverless vehicles are expected to “eliminate bad driving” by 2020. Deaths and injuries caused by accidents are expected to virtually disappear and whiplash claims and car park disputes, which together account for 94pc of all insurance claims and cost insurers almost £3bn a year,...

Look Out! Driverless Cars are Coming!

A University of Michigan study says a system with both driverless and human-operated cars would not be safe, especially for the human-driven vehicles. In 2015, driverless cars have made huge leaps in progress, with exhibitions of their reliability taking place in England while American companies vie for attention with announcements about their own driverless car innovations. In mid-February, Sony announced it is teaming with Japanese robotics company ZNP to create a self-driving automobile. Sony has invested almost $1... [Lire la suite]

Honda introducing first predictive cruise control system in CR-V in Europe

                          Honda will introduce in Europe the first predictive cruise control system, which Honda calls Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC), capable of foreseeing and automatically reacting to other vehicles cutting-in to the equipped vehicle’s lane. Based on extensive real-world research of typical European driving styles, Honda’s Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (i-ACC) uses a camera and radar to sense the position of other...

Self-Driving-Vehicle Features Could Represent a $42 Billion Market by 2025

Partially Autonomous Vehicles Are Likely to Hit the Roads in Large Numbers by 2017; One-Fifth of U.S. Drivers Say They Would Pay More Than $5,000 Extra for Features Such as Highway or Urban Autopilot, BCG Study Finds. Powered by surprisingly strong consumer interest, partially autonomous vehicles (AVs) are likely to penetrate the market as early as 2017, followed by a series of enhancements that will make fully self-driving cars a market reality in a decade and a common sight within two decades, according to new research by The...

Accident Management Costs Rise 6.2 Percent in 2013

How much do road accidents cost to fleet company ? Accident management costs in 2013 were on the rise, increasing by up to 6.2 percent in some cases, over 2012 figures. The rising cost of raw materials, new-vehicle technologies, parts and labor, use of advanced materials, and additional components for parts assemblies have all contributed to an overall increase in cost. Illustration by Armie Bautista. "Parts increases are passed from the manufacturer to the delivering dealer, to repair shops, thus the increases are included in... [Lire la suite]

The Massive Economic Benefits of Self Driving Cars

Why would self-driving cars even be a big deal? Let me run down some rough calculations of the benefits.First up is the most obvious: saved lives. When I hear people say that “autonomous cars won’t work” I want to ask “Compared to what?”. Because human-driven cars don’t work very well either. In 2012, there were 30,800 fatal car crashes. These crashes lead to the deaths of 22,912 drivers and passengers of cars, 4,957 on motorcycles, 4,743 pedestrians, and 726 on bicycles. So if autonomous cars worked so poorly that they killed 10,000... [Lire la suite]
