Étiquette : self driving car (Page 2 of 7)

Le prototype EQ Fortwo de Daimler intègre un grand écran qui associe des signes à des textes courts pour communiquer avec les piétons, les vélos, les conducteurs, etc.

“Comment faire cohabiter piétons et véhicules lorsqu’on enlève l’humain du siège conducteur ? Les piétons ont appris à anticiper le comportement des chauffeurs : beaucoup cherchent leurs yeux, certains se fendent d’un sourire de remerciement. Mais les piétons ignorent la façon dont les voitures autonomes fonctionnent, d’autant que leur comportement peut changer subtilement au gré des mises à jour logicielles”.

Potential Data Sources

“Car makers are collecting massive amounts of data from the latest cars on the road. Now, they’re figuring out how to make money off it. With millions of cars rolling off dealer lots with built-in connectivity, auto companies are gaining access to unprecedented amounts of real-time data that allow them to track everything from where a car is located to how hard it is braking and whether or not the windshield wipers are on.
The data is generated by the car’s onboard sensors and computers, and then stored by the auto maker in cloud-based servers. Some new cars have as many as 100 built-in processors that generate data”.

“Dans la course à la mobilité autonome, Sion est toujours en tête grâce à une nouvelle première mondiale franchie ces jours dans les rues de la capitale. Fortes d’une technologie développée par Siemens, Valère et Tourbillon sont désormais capables de traverser des feux de signalisation. «Nous avons six mois d’avance sur le reste du monde», s’enthousiasme Philippe Varone, président de la Ville de Sion. Sur la Suisse aussi, où d’autres projets du même type sont expérimentés à Marly ou Cossonay”.

“William Wallace, senior policy analyst for Consumers Union, the advocacy division of Consumer Reports, called Uber “reckless” and said the NTSB report “makes it clear that a self-driving car was tested on public roads when it wasn’t safe enough to be there, and it killed a pedestrian.” He added that the system “was far too dangerous to be tested off a closed track.”Some cities expressed hesitation about immediately allowing Uber to return to testing”.

«Software designers face a basic tradeoff here. If the software is programmed to be too cautious, the ride will be slow and jerky, as the car constantly slows down for objects that pose no threat to the car or aren’t there at all. Tuning the software in the opposite direction will produce a smooth ride most of the time—but at the risk that the software will occasionally ignore a real object. According to Efrati, that’s what happened in Tempe in March—and unfortunately the « real object » was a human being».

“Tesla withdrew from the party agreement with the NTSB because it requires that we not release information about Autopilot to the public, a requirement which we believe fundamentally affects public safety negatively. We believe in transparency, so an agreement that prevents public release of information for over a year is unacceptable. Even though we won’t be a formal party, we will continue to provide technical assistance to the NTSB.”
