Official Bharat NCAP launched to enhance Vehicle Safety in India

article imageIn a significant milestone for road safety in India, the Bharat New Car Assessment Program (BNCAP) has been launched by the Indian government. The announcement of the new government crash test programme is a direct result of the Safer Cars for India Campaign, led by Global NCAP and the Institute for Road Safety Education (IRTE). For almost a decade this consumer campaign has independently crash tested popular cars in India and published the results, generating huge media attention. Bloomberg Philanthropies and the FIA Foundation funded the campaign.

Insights into Automated Lane Keeping System (ALKS) Test Scenarios

article imageHowever complex an electronic system is, its basic requirement is often straightforward to describe. In the case of the Automated Lane Keeping System (ALKS), that requirement states that when explicitly activated by the driver of a vehicle, the system must control longitudinal and lateral movements of the vehicle and monitor driver behaviour, including continuous determination of driver availability and attentiveness. ALKS deploys sensors and actuators to perform its tasks and keep the vehicle in the chosen lane. The automatic driving function is deactivated as soon as intervention is necessary or the driver takes independent action. This level of functionality corresponds to SAE Level 3.

Continental and Amazon Web Services accelerate Automotive-Software Development

article imageContinental has expanded its tool box for automotive software development: With the future virtual ECU Creator software (vECU Creator), developers at vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and third parties will be able to configure and run virtual cloud-based electronic control units in their specific development environments to help develop code for micro-controller and processor hardware that does not yet exist. The virtual ECU Creator is part of the Continental Automotive Edge (CAEdge) framework, which runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). By using cloud-based vECUs, new applications or software features for software-defined vehicles (SDV) can be built by OEMs faster, more efficiently and in a more agile way.

New Communication Signals help Road Users understand automated heavy Vehicles

article imageTo effectively communicate with each other in traffic, we rely today on a range of signals - such as traffic lights, turn indicators, and eye contact. With the advent of automated vehicles, the communication landscape in traffic is transforming. How will automated vehicles integrate into traffic while ensuring understanding and trust among other road users, including pedestrians and human drivers? A research project shows that new communication signals could be vital in various traffic situations and that these signals need to be standardized, cost-efficient, and compatible with other features on vehicles.
