Machines that can see and understand is a nice concept. If machines can start sensing the road condition then we can definitely minimize the chance of collision as well as accidents. Various technologies are now-a-days used inside the vehicle. Some embededd systems as well as sensing technologies are used in the cars and other vehicles sense the car condition all the time. When a new vehicle is all set to come into the market the car makers give more concern to its applications, technologies and about its design chalenges. The car makers provide us cars and now it is our responsibility to take care of the vehicle and drive safe to stay safe. We have to learn the safety measures and have to implement them in our daily driving. To avoid crash of the vehicle or accidents due to the vehicle breakdown we can do the servicing of the vehicle after the vehicle completes some particular miles of run. We have to stay alert about any error inside our vehicle. If so then we have to search for a reliable repair center for our respective vehicle and have to get it repaired.

As far as automobile is concerned safety is the most important thing and I really appreciate the thinking of the author regarding the safety. Most of the people think of safety but less are there to implement. The "automotive driver assistance systems" will help to minimize the rate of accidents like as mentioned here about avoidance of forward collision, blind spot monitoring and many more. Also, Google's self driving cars are there to deal with the same issue but, we have technology still we are facing accidents and crashes. The question arises here why? The answer is with us. Because of taking less care of the vehicle we have to face such issues. Yes, we have technology but, only having technology will not help all the parts of the vehicle to perform to a optimum level. As cars are combined of machinery products so, wear and tear may happen. Here, technology will help us by alerting when there is some issues in the vehicle and we have to proceed further with it. It is not like we can delay the servicing and repair of the vehicle. It is going to be risky. To stay safe we have to do these things without any delay. As we have to repair our car, we can not go for any ordinary mechanic. We have to go for some professional or trained mechanics so that we can get the best repair.

The market have been filled up with saftey systems. looking at the amount of daily car accident people are facing they have started spending high on safety of the passengers so that the family members or the traveller can have a safe journey. There comes these vision based automation systems for the car owners. You go to any of the good car servicing center around the world they will suggest you to use vision based automotive safety system as they are more reliable than others.

Safety factor comes in every case that comes in existence. Automobile is such a industry that needs a lots of safety factors before thiniking to get the service. According to me the service that can be changeable and on control. This blog providing the important information for the safety factor of people. I think everyone must think about this. If you have any problem in any of the car parts then better to visit Land Rover Parts Online and change the parts that is one of the safety factor for you.

Automotive safety is very necessary for the vehicle operators. This will help for the safety and security of the passngers and vehicle operator. Automotive electronic devices used in the vehicle for the automotive infiotainment. Automotive infotainment technology is something very necessary for the Automotive safety. Driverless car also very useful for the safety of the people while traveling. I have gone through this article and this is very much informative for the visitors. Auto care also very necessary for the safety of the vehicle and its user. Auto care tips will help us to know about the easiest way of solving automobile problems.

Boy, you ARE old-fashioned, Tom!

But I know what you mean. I happened to move into a new apartment equipped with talking elevators, whose job seems to be announcing "going up" or "going down" every time when I step inside. I can't shut them up.

Why is this elevator talking to me? (but of course, if I am visually impaired, I am sure I would feel different about this.)

The challenge for designers of any "automated" system is to truly understand what's necessary (rather than nice-to-have features), and make sure to give options and flexibility for users to turn it off.

Call me old fashioned ("You're old fashioned!!!)  but I don't like the direction this road is heading.  Maybe it's because the fondest memories I have are of setting my own course on the open roads of summer, relying on my own keen senses to gauge the beauty and cruelty of the world around me. Instead, soon we'll have a car that scolds me for driving too fast, taking a turn too tightly, or maybe just stealing a kiss as the sun sets in the west. ("No kissing!!" Zap!!)

What next, machines that force you to exercise, tell you to put down that corndog, or scold you for watching crappy TV shows?  

Gimme map full of blue-lines and a 68 Camaro ragtop and I'll find my own way.

Personally, I'm pleased that advances in technology are making driving safer. I know there are those who complain about the costs being added to vehicles by safety mandates and I understand that that can create problems. But to me the improvements in safety far outweigh the added cost. Case in point: vehicle related fatalities in the U.S. have been on a downward trend for several years (altough they rose slightly in 2012).

Wow, an electric shock? Ouch! But hey, if that saves people's lives...

Yes, I would definitely like to learn more about systems that evaluate the driver's attention. Looking forward to your next installment!

I agree.  In a future blog post, I'll discuss systems that assess the driver's attention and fatigue, some of which use vision (for example, to track where the driver is looking).  If it were up to me, an electric shock would be administered through the seat if the driver looks away from the road for more than a second or two while the vehicle is in motion. :-)
