Autonomous Driving: Styrian Development Saves Millions in Test Kilometres

TU Graz, JOANNEUM RESEARCH, AVL and Fraunhofer Austria have developed a method to validate test drives through highly realistic driving simulation studies and to substantially simplify the approval process for…

New technology gives smart cars ‘x-ray’ vision, detecting hidden pedestrians, cyclists

Australian researchers have developed disruptive technology allowing autonomous vehicles to track running pedestrians hidden behind buildings, and cyclists obscured by larger cars, trucks, and buses. The autonomous vehicle uses game…

Silicon anodes muscle in on battery technology

Scientists show exactly how promising approach to better batteries breaks down. Silicon is a staple of the digital revolution, shunting loads of signals on a device that’s likely just inches…

Making self-driving cars human-friendly

Automated vehicles could be made more pedestrian-friendly thanks to new research which could help them predict when people will cross the road. University of Leeds-led scientists investigating how to better…

Researcher develops a smart-car Identity and Access Management (IAM) system

Subhajit Bandopadhyay is working on a smart car IAM based on Usage Control (UCON) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs). A post-graduate student in City’s Institute for Cyber Security (ICS) is attempting…

RISC-V Functional Safety Processor IP Core

The Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS and semiconductor intellectual property provider CAST, Inc. announced the immediate availability of EMSA5-FS, a fault-tolerant embedded RISC-V processor IP core designed to meet…

Driving in the snow is a team effort for AI sensors

Nobody likes driving in a blizzard, including autonomous vehicles. To make self-driving cars safer on snowy roads, engineers look at the problem from the car’s point of view. A major…

Microscanner mirrors replace human vision

Enhanced safety for autonomous driving In autonomous vehicles, it is advanced technology that takes the wheel, allowing passengers to sit back and enjoy the ride. Yet such systems have to…

Autonomous driving – Avoiding a total breakdown

A new electronic module safeguards self-driving vehicles against the total failure of onboard electrical systems. Autonomous electric vehicles draw power from two sources: a high-voltage battery and, additionally, a conventional…

Graphite instead of gold: Thin layers for better hydrogen cars

Innovative coating for bipolar plates in fuel cells. Electric cars which can be filled up within five minutes, reach ranges like a diesel and yet drive “cleanly”: This is already…
