ADAS is the driverless car’s eyes on the future

ADAS is the driverless car’s eyes on the future Autonomous may be set to change the world but ADAS has to be perfect first, as Brendan McNally reports. [Auto.McNally.2016.03.31] With the World fixated, as it is, on driverless cars, it is a little odd so little attention ever gets paid to its constituent technologies, known collectively as ADAS. While the prophets of the automotive space, predict driverless cars will be the most disruptive technology ever to come down the pike, the same somehow cannot be said of automatic cruise...

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle The French High-Tech startup NEXYAD recently presented their module SafetyNex. SafetyNex is a real time driving risk assessment system. Of course, Driving Risk makes everyone think of car insurance and fleet management. And it is a natural application (deployment has already started). But it is important to note that Driving Risk is also a key notion for ADAS and Driverless car. Indeed, Driving Risk happens when there is no adequation between Driving Behaviour and Diving...

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]

Self-Driving Bicycle Hopes to Change Public Transit

Self-Driving Bicycle Hopes to Change Public Transit Unlike Google’s April Fool’s Day video (watch below) that showed a self-driving bicycle navigating its way around Amsterdam, the work being done by University of Washington Bothell professor Tyler Folsom is no joke. Folsom and crew are trying to ensure bicycles are included in the movement toward self-driving vehicles. The UW Bothell team is building a self-driving tricycle that can travel at speeds up to 30 MPH with a 15-mile range. The team claims the self-driving... [Lire la suite]

Self-driving Volkswagen completes 1,500-mile Mexican trek

Self-driving Volkswagen completes 1,500-mile Mexican trek As self-driving vehicles seem to be steering themselves ever closer to the mainstream, a team of researchers has completed Mexico's longest-ever journey in an autonomous car, traveling 1,500 miles in a special high-tech Volkswagen. Raul Rojas, a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, led a team that traveled from Nogales to Mexico City this month. The car used for the journey, a 2010 Volkswagen Passat station wagon named Autonomos, was sent to Reno from Berlin, where... [Lire la suite]
