UN Regulation extends Automated Driving up to 130 km/h in certain Conditions

A new milestone in mobility has been reached with the adoption of a proposal to extend automated driving in certain traffic environments from the current limit of 60 km/h to up to 130 km/h. The amendment to UN Regulation No. 157 adopted by the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations extends the maximum speed for Automated Driving System (ADS) for passenger cars and light duty vehicles up to 130 km/h on motorways, and allows automated lane changes, among other dispositions.

Off-road Motorcycles put four Times more Kids in Hospital than Quad-bikes: Study

article imageMotorcycles cause a far higher rate of injuries among children than quad bikes do, a study from UNSW Sydney and NeuRA has found, but quad bikes account for more serious individual injuries. In a retrospective population study carried out by UNSW and its medical research affiliates NeuRA and The George Institute, the study authors examined all records of children aged 0-16 years admitted to NSW hospitals in the years 2001-2018 for injuries sustained in off-road motorcycle or quad-bike crashes.

Ford Trials Geofencing Tech that could automatically reduce the Speed of Vehicles to improve Safety for all

article imageMany cities and towns limit speeds around schools, hospitals and shopping areas. Seeing the signs, however, can depend on how visible they are, whether they are concealed by branches, or maybe surrounded by a cluster of other signs. Now, Ford is trialling connected vehicle technology using geofencing a virtual geographical boundary that could one day do away with the need for speed limit signs completely.
