Less Traffic Accidents resulting in Injury: Near-field Projection increases Road Safety

article imageContinental has developed a new system for generating dynamic projections near a vehicle. A compact, powerful projection module based on micro-LEDs provides for increased safety in the immediate vicinity of a vehicle and reduces the number of accidents involving injuries. The new solution is especially easy to integrate into a vehicle because all of the components - power supply, graphics processing unit and micro-LED module - fit into a cube measuring only five centimeters on a side.

New Ways to measure Driver Cellphone Use could yield better Data

article imageRoadside cameras and telematics data could provide a more complete picture of driver cellphone use, two new studies from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety suggest. Observers relying on photographs taken with roadside cameras were almost as good as in-person monitors at identifying drivers who were using their cellphones, one study showed. Another demonstrated that the telematics data collected by the safe-driver apps that are gaining ground in the insurance industry could provide more details about when and how drivers are using their devices.

Hyundai Verna joins India's Constellation of five Star Cars

article imageThe Hyundai Verna has scored a top Global NCAP rating for adult and child occupant safety. The voluntary test is one of the final results in the #SaferCarsForIndia campaign ahead of BHARAT NCAP's activation later this year. The Hyundai Verna was assessed in its most basic passive safety specification with 6 airbags and ESC as standard. The model achieved a five star rating for adult and child occupants although the structure was unstable.

Rohde & Schwarz introduces the shortest possible Distance Simulation for FMCW Radars

article imageThe radar test system from Rohde & Schwarz simulates driving scenarios for testing radar based ADAS and radar sensors used in automated driving cars entirely over the air. Now Rohde & Schwarz introduces new options for the R&S AREG800A automotive radar echo generator and the R&S QAT100 antenna array. The system is able to generate extremely short distances for the artificial objects, and therefore enables realistic autonomous braking tests with the smallest distance possible on the market.

Thermal Barriers: More Safety for Electric Cars - now also in 3D

article imagelithium-ion batteries, higher energy density increases the risk of thermal runaway. As a preventive measure, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies has developed thermal barriers that help to slow down thermal runaway by increasing resistance to propagation. The new 3D thermal barriers can be used at various positions within the battery and have already proven reliable in their initial series productions.

AMD powers Hitachi Astemo Next-generation Forward Camera System for enhanced Vehicle Safety through AI Object Detection

article imageAMD announced that Hitachi Astemo has selected AMD adaptive computing technology to power its new, stereo-format, forward-looking camera for adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking, improving the vision capabilities and helping to increase the safety of next-generation vehicles. The AMD Automotive XA Zynq UltraScale+ multi-processor system-on-a-chip (MPSoC) provides both stereo and monocular image processing in the camera, enabling it to detect objects over 120 degrees - a 3X wider angle than its previous-generation cameras - to enhance overall safety.

Education and Driving Automation

article imageResearch conducted by the consortium of the AV-PL-ROAD project, which also included the Motor Transport Institute, showed that raising the awareness and level of knowledge of drivers and candidates for drivers in the use of driving automation systems will ensure proper and safe interaction between a human and a vehicle. Traffic participants, and above all drivers, should know the principles of operation of individual systems (especially those installed in their vehicles) and know when their operation may be disrupted.
