Autonomous Vehicle Implementation Predictions Report

Autonomous Vehicle Implementation Predictions Report

This report explores the impacts that autonomous (also called self-driving, driverless or robotic) vehicles are likely to have on travel demands and transportation planning. It discusses autonomous vehicle benefits and costs, predicts their likely development and implementation based on experience with previous vehicle technologies, and explores how they will affect planning decisions such as optimal road, parking and public transit supply. by Todd Litman Victoria Transport Policy Institute.

Enabling Efficient Active Safety Solutions for Large Vehicles and Trucks with Optical Detection and Ranging

Enabling Efficient Active Safety Solutions for Large Vehicles and Trucks with Optical Detection and Ranging

Large vehicles of all types (i.e. buses, tractor-trailors, dump trucks, etc.) can significantly benefit from new ADAS and active safety features that support drivers 24/7, making the roads safer for all. In this solution overview Leddar technology discusses how they improve the cost-performance ratio of optical detection and ranging, and overcoming key challenges of large vehicle ADAS.

Shared Automated Vehicles: Review of Business Models

Shared Automated Vehicles: Review of Business Models

This paper provides an introduction to the current state of vehicle automation and shared mobility. The paper discusses current shared mobility business models to foster a better understanding of these systems at present and to set the stage for possible future shared automated vehicle (SAV) business models. The discussion covers current SAV pilot projects around the world and then explores potential SAV business and service models considering high or full automation (Level 4 and higher). The paper ends with a discussion of the literature regarding projected SAV impacts. Although the future of SAVs is uncertain, this briefing paper begins the dialogue around SAV business models that may develop, which are informed by current shared mobility services.

Mr. Stocker will be presenting on the topic of 'Planning for the Shift from Private Vehicle Ownership to Fleet-based AVs as Deployment Accelerates' at the upcoming summit in February.

A Guide to the MISRA Coding Standard - What you need to know

A Guide to the MISRA Coding Standard - What you need to know

Learn what information your development organization needs to adopt the MISRA coding standard, how it’s applicable to a broad range of industries and applications and the role of static analysis tools in standards enforcement and verification.

Road Surface Information

Road Surface Information

You could say it’s the road less travelled; gathering road surface information completely without cameras. But with advanced sensor fusion, RSI by NIRA makes it a very real possibility – enabling greater comfort and safety in a truly cost-efficient manner. Sounds good? Then imagine the possibilities when sharing road information in a connected vehicle cloud.

Protecting Against Tainted Data in Embedded Apps with Static Analysis

Protecting Against Tainted Data in Embedded Apps with Static Analysis

Attacks against embedded systems are growing in frequency as malicious hackers become more sophisticated in their methods. These vulnerabilities are being exploited by hostile users to gain access to a system so they may subvert its use. This paper describes a static analysis technique – taint analysis – that can be used to find how potentially hazardous inputs can flow through a program to reach sensitive parts of code, empowering developers to identify and eliminate these dangerous vulnerabilities much more effectively.

Meeting Functional Safety Requirements Efficiently via Electronic Design Tools and Techniques

Meeting Functional Safety Requirements Efficiently via Electronic Design Tools and Techniques

In an intelligent electronic system, unexpected errors can lead to unplanned, unexpected behavior. This can be a potentially dangerous proposition for, say, an automotive manufacturer, as well as a
costly occurrence for consumer product developers. Compliance to the latest safety standards can be a laborious, time-consuming process. Fortunately, there are now technologies available that can automate
the process of meeting functional safety requirements. This paper examines these functional safety solutions, showing how these technologies and tools can help engineers efficiently and effectively create safe, reliable products. Courtesy of cadence
