The rise of semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles

The rise of semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicles
While considered science fiction a decade earlier, semi-autonomous and autonomous vehicle technologies are evolving rapidly. The prospect of autonomous driving seemed to be impossible and futuristic. The idea of autonomous vehicles is not new and traces back to the times of Leonardo Da Vinci who first sketched a three-wheeled driverless cart in 1478. Tesla’s autopilot was introduced in 2015 with driver assistance systems, which marked the inception of semi-autonomous vehicles, paving the way for autonomous vehicles.

Paving the way for autonomous driving and high-speed communication

Paving the way for autonomous driving and high-speed communication
The automotive industry is focusing its efforts on developing solutions for autonomous driving and car-to-car communication. At the same time, the communications industry is moving towards 5G, and broadband networks are becoming ever faster. Large and complex volumes of data need to be transmitted securely in fractions of a second. Demanding applications such as these require specially developed printed circuit board (PCB) and interconnection technologies.

Self-driving cars are coming to Dubai’s Police Force

Self-driving cars are coming to Dubai’s Police Force
  Authorities in Dubai are set to have a new recruit patrolling the streets: a mini robotic police car to help identify and track suspects. The robotic cars are powered with machine learning algorithms and 3D SLAM technology, but police officers can control the cars through a computer in their patrol car dashboards.

Kangaroos steer self-driving cars astray

Kangaroos steer self-driving cars astray
  Autonomous car designers are discovering an interesting problem as they begin to test their vehicles in Australia. The unusual way that kangaroos move confuses the car's animal detection system. Volvo’s 2017 S90 and XC90 models use its Large Animal Detection system to monitor the road for deer, elk and caribou, but the way kangaroos moves completely throws it off.

How will ISO 26262 impact automotive electronics?

How will ISO 26262 impact automotive electronics?
Automobiles today have more computing power than a fighter jet from the 1960s.There has been a huge influx of electronics integrated throughout a vehicle, including the engine, power train, chassis, body systems, comfort systems, active safety and Driver’s Assistance Systems (ADAS). The value of all this technology is upwards of 30% of the automobile’s total production cost. Eric Grange of C&K explains.

Next-gen V2X transceiver for ADAS applications

Next-gen V2X transceiver for ADAS applications
Designed to accelerate the development of safer and more automated vehicles, u-blox has announced the VERA P1 series, the latest in its range of V2X modules. The goal of developing safe and reliable self driving cars can only be realised through technology. The automotive industry, governments and standards bodies all agree it will require vehicles to be in constant contact with other vehicles and their surroundings, known respectively as Vehicle To Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I), but collectively as Vehicle to Everything (V2X).
