Warwick’s research improves driverless car merging techniques

Improved technology will soon allow self-driving cars to merge onto motorways and highways with better safety, thanks to new research. Researchers from WMG, part of the University of Warwick, have pioneered this technology as part of the AutopleX (Autonomous Cars Negotiating Complex Environments Using V2X) project consortium. The research uses roadside infrastructure and vehicle sensors […]

Academic questions Automatic Lane Keeping viability

A researcher at the University of Warwick is warning that Automated Lane Keeping Systems cannot be safely used until driver monitoring systems are in place. ALKS would mean drivers could use a conditionally automated system that can take over control of the vehicle at low speeds, keeping it in lane on motorways. But Joseph Smyth, […]
