January 2016, management briefing (Part 2)

26 January 2016

The second part of this month’s briefing reviews just some of the supplier autonomous driving innovations that caught our eye in the consumer electronics show (CES) and Detroit auto show this month. While they may not be household names, the likes of Autoliv, Bosch, Continental, Delphi, Denso, Magna, Valeo, Visteon and ZF TRW will heavily influence how your autonomous car will perform. Here, the tech talk is on sensor fusion (critical for self-driving cars), connectivity and vehicle-to-everything. In the meantime, semi-autonomous technologies are becoming more affordable thereby paving the way for mass-vehicle market growth.

Q&A with TNO: Pedestrian and cyclist protection

7 March 2013

Protecting the pedestrian has been talked about for some time yet cyclist safety appears to have only recently been given the attention it deserves. For its part, Dutch firm TNO is developing an external airbag to protect pedestrians and cyclists in the event of a collision. The researchers used simulations, combined with real world accident data, to study the precise areas of the car a cyclist is most likely to come into contact with. Continuing just-auto's series of interviews with companies pushing back the technical boundaries in the active and passive safety arena, Matthew Beecham talked with TNO's project manager Margriet van Schijndel-de Nooij to find out more.
