High technology paints for enabling autonomous driving

Radio waves and light sensors are commonly fitted to autonomous vehicles for detecting the speeds and distances of objects around the vehicle. However, dark paints on vehicles tend to absorb the radio waves and infrared signals used by such sensors. Hence, much research has been invested in the creation of multi-layer structured high technology paints … More High technology paints for enabling autonomous driving

Productivity potential of self-driving container trucks

Self-driving container trucks offer the potential to reduce manpower needs at container ports as well as improving workflows of container movement within the port. However, the relatively low speeds at which the self-driving container trucks are capable of moving while retaining autonomous mode of control might reduce the overall productivity of the port compared to … More Productivity potential of self-driving container trucks

Autonomous self-driving cars require software able to react in the millisecond timescale

Many car and technology companies have devoted significant amount of resources into research and development of various “interpretations” of self-driving cars or autonomous vehicles. From relatively simple driver assistance tools such as adaptive cruise control, to more complicated slow speed self-driving along predefined routes aided by GPS navigation and stored 3D maps of surroundings, various … More Autonomous self-driving cars require software able to react in the millisecond timescale
