Autonomous vehicles: The electronics road to making them safe

It is very important that a smart technology should be designed and employed as safe as possible. The automotive safety system need to study and sense human activity around the vehicle as one key aspect of safety. Human behaviour needs to be observed, understood, continuously modeled and predicted. This article shows how to make an autonomous [...]
