Kia to get emotional at CES

Kia's planned display for CES 2019

Kia Motors will preview a range of technologies for the post-autonomous driving era at next month’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Kia’s interactive Space of Emotive Driving exhibit looks to a future when autonomous driving is the norm and priority is given to improving the human mobility experience. Central to this concept is Kia’s new Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (Read) system developed based on joint research with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab’s affective computing group.

Robosense develops lidar at fraction of cost

Robosense lidar system can detect objects

Robosense has developed intelligent perception lidar, a hardware and software algorithm for the mass production of safer autonomous cars. The RS-IPLS uses real-time data pre-processing and a gaze function similar to human eyes.


The company says the system is inexpensive, 1/400th the price of traditional 64-line lidar systems, and is designed for the mass production of vehicles at a low price.


Neural Networks: Way forward

Imagination Technologies

Bryce Johnstone from Imagination Technologies believes that convolutional neural networks will be essential for autonomous driving

Tests & Standards: Autonomously confident

Rohde & Schwarz

Christoph Wagner and Holger Rosier from Rohde & Schwarz look at the standards and tests that will govern future autonomous driving

Sensors: Uber lessons

Images from a video feed watching a TV monitor showing the clip released by the police. The overlaid graphics show an adas system response. The green and white bounding boxes are outputs from the bicycle and pedestrian detection modules. The horizontal graph shows the boundary between the roadway and physical obstacles, known as free-space.

Amnon Shashua, chief technology officer of Mobileye, looks at sensors and other adas technology in the wake of the tragic Uber autonomous driving accident

Autosar: Keeping pace with change

The second release of the Autosar Adaptive platform came out in October 2017. Steve Rogerson looks at how the architecture is preparing itself for highly automated driving.

Intel and Mobileye help Spain prepare for autonomous driving

Mobileye and Spain's DGT will promote the benefits of adas for municipal and private fleets

Intel subsidiary Mobileye and Spain's Directorate General of Traffic (DGT) have agreed to collaborate to reduce road accidents and prepare Spain's infrastructure ecosystem and regulatory policy for the driving of autonomous vehicles.

As part of the agreement, Mobileye and the DGT will promote the benefits of the adoption of adas for municipal and private fleets to support improved road safety across Spain. The collaboration to promote adoption will include joint research to determine the magnitude of safety improvement driven by the performance and accuracy of Mobileye 8 Connect.

ZF dynamic chassis provides platform for autonomous driving

The IDDC from ZF is suitable for vehicle concepts such as the Rinspeed Snap

ZF has developed the IDDC intelligent dynamic driving chassis, an autonomous driving platform that it hopes will enable automated and emission-free mobility in the future.

The company has combined innovative chassis systems, electric drives and environmental sensors with hardware and software to create the skateboard autonomous driving platform.

As well as supporting ZF’s zero emissions philosophy, the IDDC can enable vehicles to see, think and act. This is achieved using environmental sensors, intelligent control units and connected mechanical systems.

Software: New age

Decentralised systems must evolve to enable functionality such as self-parking

Marques McCammon from Intel subsidiary Wind River discusses how software and the autonomous car are altering the automotive industry and life as we know it
