China is becoming serious about leading the electrified future; they are looking for reducing its dependence on imported oil and decreasing the smog level in its cities while growing their Electric Vehicle (EV) market: near 375,000 EVs were manufactured by Chinese OEMs in 2016 (43% of EV production worldwide).   The Chinese government is giving an ultimatum to all automakers operating in the country: a sizable portion of their production or imports must be green in 2019, with escalating go ...
The transformation of the idle transportation industry will innovate during this year as transit systems not only move people and goods between places but mitigate time and distance —bringing us closer together. Some of the Transportation Technologies Driving 2019 are:   Will autonomous cars and trucks finally be around? There is no doubt that self-driving vehicles are becoming a commercial reality: almost all major automotive companies are (in-house or in partnership) developing an ...
As 2016 ignited the automotive revolution with significant announcements and concepts, 2017 completely paved the road for future mobility, and 2018 brought us semi-autonomous embedded features with safety technologies, 2019 will drive us (even more) forward on self-driving than ever before.   Several companies (like Waymo, Argo, Uber, Aurora, or Ford) together with joint ventures (like Google and Volvo or Renault-Nissan, or Amazon and Audi) and disruptive startups are focusing this year on ...
Smart Transportation systems are mixing embedded technologies, data processing capabilities, and telematics breakthroughs to develop a robust network of solutions that are changing the way everyone (users, organizations, and governments) are not only relating with vehicles, drivers and passengers, but pedestrians, roads, regulations, and more.   Carmakers are developing more secure and safer vehicles, more automated and connected to the outside environment than ever before.  Consequen ...
Vehicles are quickly evolving from being a simple way of transport to become a highly-computerized mobile hub. Modern cars and trucks are gradually turning into computers-on-wheels by plugging-in to the Internet to offer efficiency, comfort, and convenience, together with security and safety.   The Securing Connected and Autonomous Cars for a Smarter World report from the global business consulting firm Frost & Sullivan estimated new vehicles have about 100 Electronic Control Units (EC ...
Different state-of-the-art tech trends are enabling the Autonomous Vehicle revolution: Electrification, Connectivity, and Software. The confluence of these disruptive technology-driven trends is transforming the automotive industry as they are proving all of them are ready to exceed stringent functional safety requirements, making sure they are both safe and secure for humans. - Electrification of the vehicle is shifting from only achieving a high fuel efficiency to providing the most optimum r ...
Drivers are not ready to give over the wheel even when +37,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents on US highways in 2016 —most of the cases due to some kind of human error. There is a concern (or fear?) if autonomous cars and trucks are ready to leave the test roads and start driving wide-scale together with human traffic: Are autonomous vehicles safer than human drivers?   Self-driving vehicles are indeed not perfect. Several car makers, technology companies, and startups testin ...
Autonomous Vehicles are driving towards zero accidents: being involved in fewer crashes, getting less injuries, and possibly saving lives. However, most comparisons between driverless vehicles and human drivers have been uneven... and maybe unfair.   Even when statistics show that above 90% of incidents in the US involve some form of human errors or deficiencies, there is not enough data to accurately assess if automation might be better than humans at not-crashing. Reliable crash rates sh ...
Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts are fixing their expectations about the availability of autonomous vehicles and how it might take several years before self-driving systems can genuinely avoid accidents. Full autonomy seems closer than ever as the self-driving vehicles keep getting better, but the reality is autonomous technologies are currently struggling with the real world. The delay could place fully self-driving vehicles further than we realize —putting them out of reach for an en ...
Technology development for Autonomous Vehicles is moving from functionality to performance to reliability. However, current self-driving cars and trucks need to reach stringent safety and security levels before going broad, as strict reliability standards are critical to guarantee human protection and to drive public acceptance of the autonomous technologies.   Defined by the ISO 26262 standard, the Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) are a rigorous risk classification scheme for sel ...
The Autonomous Vehicle Disengagement Reports from the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) are closely watched around the self-driving world for the considerable number of companies testing their autonomous vehicles on Californian public roads —also for the data about the miles driven, accidents or setbacks that happens, and disengagements from the autonomous mode. The DMV classifies a disengagement as any situation where a human driver is forced to take manual control of the auto ...
Even when fully autonomous driving will take some years to emerge, almost every car maker in the world is currently betting on self-driving technologies. Those companies are investing billions of dollars, making aggressive acquisitions, and managing initiatives to get the most advantages for their upcoming autonomous vehicles programs.   Car makers are evolving to some kind of technology companies to survive in the era of both the disruptive self-driving and the Artificial Intelligence (AI ...
Over the past decade, the automobile industry has been operating under the influence of four megatrends, integrating advances in electronic component design and improving circuit performance to enhance the driving experience: safety, reliability, efficiency, and connectivity.   Most modern automobiles include Engine and Powertrain control, Infotainment, Safety Control, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to control the vehicle operation and safety and influence the driver/user ex ...
Most industry experts agree that Diverse Mobility, Autonomous-Driving, Electrification, and Connectivity disruptive trends will accelerate one another and also shift the whole automotive sector. Those technology-driven trends will change the way on how we do things today: reducing auto accidents, freeing up large amounts of parking space, giving people more time to entertain themselves, or evolving automotive-related jobs.   Self-Driving vehicles are not on the road yet, but they will sign ...
Vehicles are becoming powerful high-functional computers on wheels, equipped with sophisticated technologies: ADAS or GPS systems to support drivers, HD cameras for Vision processing, Radar or Lidar sensors for surrounding mapping, and more. Several automotive and memory experts agreed the upcoming Autonomous Vehicles are generating and consuming almost a terabyte of data by the use of those technologies; much of that data must be real-time processed as it could make the difference between dete ...
