@J Dan G A recent report: https://www.iihs.org/externaldata/srdata/docs/sr5304.pdf
highlights problems with current-model cars fitted with Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping. It finds the...
@Boss We should already have transponders in our vehicles! With a collision avoidance system as used in air craft and shipping. I saw a demonstration of one problem with driverless technology, if the vehicle...
Fully-autonomous vehicles will certainly be universal at some point in the future. 2050? Probably not. 2100? Almost certainly. Who would have predicted in 1918 that the telephone and early radio experiments...
Hi Bill and thank you for an excellent article. I would agree that AI is limited at this point in time and can certainly be improved upon especially with LIDAR, Radar and other sensor tech as you have...
I disagree with your conclusion. We *will* have fully autonomous cars, and without an AI breakthrough. Sufficient technology will eventually mean that cars will recognise hazards sufficiently well. This,...
The BA8290xYxx-C series of op-amps eliminates the need for noise countermeasures in automotive sensor applications.
The UK government has a manifesto commitment for all cars and vans on the roads to have zero emissions by 2050. So, unless ‘wireless power’ can be developed quickly, cars will need electric motors with batteries or fuel cells for energy storage.
"Outstanding Reliability!“ Traco Power DC/DC-Converters - the power behind the TUfast Eco Racing team
Run by the Technical University Munich, the TUfast Eco Team designed and built an energy efficient Urban Concept vehicle, powered by Traco Power DC/DC- converters
In November 2015 I suggested in a DesignSpark article that ‘Your Car will soon be Driving You to Work’. After nearly three years of frantic activity by engineers and marketing people, are autonomous cars any nearer becoming a reality?
Maximum comfort and safety mean more and more electronics are being packed into vehicles. This leads to a constantly increasing power density with significant thermal hazard potential. SCHURTER counters this danger with thermal fuses.
Does your automotive engineering design have excess heat problems? As engineering designs become smaller and more compact, many designs experience reliability and durability issues due to heat.
ROHM Semiconductor is official technology partner of the VENTURI Formula E team.
Featuring patented RADSOK® technology, Amphenol offers the largest portfolio of interconnect solution for Hybrid and Electric Vehicles with a superior performance.
The development of autonomous vehicles is looking to build on that momentum throughout 2018 and beyond. In this article, we would like to explain the system of Inertial navigation and Murat accelerometers: SCC2000 series.
Read about my top 3 picks from Embedded World 2018, where the most impressive and thought-provoking displays were the ones focussed on autonomous vehicles and the technology being developed to enable and control them.
I’m at the British Motor Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, where the UK National Final of the Jaguar Land Rover In Schools Technology Challenge is currently taking place.
This article aims to give a brief overview of the considerations for the automotive sector and the surrounding community concerning the adoption of alternative forms of energy given the strain on and negative impact of current resources.
