Autonomous vehicles interact with each other for the first time

Autonomous vehicles interact with each other for the first time
On the 18th April 2018, the DRIVEN consortium demonstrated publicly for the first time the capabilities of its fleet of autonomous vehicles to interact and ‘talk’ to each other. From its headquarters at the RACE Building at the Culham Science Centre in Abingdon, DRIVEN set two of its vehicles, a white and blue 2014 Ford Fusion Titanium hybrid and a 2017 Ford Mondeo hybrid on the roads to show assembled media the latest milestone in the project.

The arrival of self-driving cars with sensor fusion and processing

The arrival of self-driving cars with sensor fusion and processing
  At Siemens US Innovation Day in Chicago, Siemens introduced a breakthrough solution for the development of autonomous driving systems. The solution, part of the Simcenter portfolio, minimises the need for extensive physical prototyping while dramatically reducing the number of logged test miles necessary to demonstrate the safety of autonomous vehicles.

Computational photography could improve self-driving cars

Computational photography could improve self-driving cars
MIT researchers have developed a system that can produce images of objects shrouded by fog so thick that human vision can’t penetrate it. It can also gauge the objects’ distance. An inability to handle misty driving conditions has been one of the chief obstacles to the development of autonomous vehicular navigation systems that use visible light, which are preferable to radar-based systems for their high resolution and ability to read road signs and track lane markers.

Sensor designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications

Sensor designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications
The dual die 360° angle sensor TLE5012BD from Infineon is designed for angular position sensing in automotive applications such as electrical commutated motors, steering angle measurements or general angular sensing. It detects the orientation of a magnetic field by measuring sine and cosine angle components with monolithic integrated Giant Magneto Resistance (iGMR) elements.

Depth sensors could be sensitive enough for self-driving cars

Depth sensors could be sensitive enough for self-driving cars
  For the past 10 years, the Camera Culture group at MIT’s Media Lab has been developing innovative imaging systems — from a camera that can see around corners to one that can read text in closed books — by using 'time of flight,' an approach that gauges distance by measuring the time it takes light projected into a scene to bounce back to a sensor.
