Vehicle, Robot, Smartness


The smart vehicle system is a new information system for automobile drivers to solve problems caused by automobiles and road traffic. It deals with four fields: information systems for a single vehicle, for inter-vehicles and for vehicle-to-road relations, and studies on vehicle-to-driver relations. The system candidates include: a cooperative driving system, a control configured vehicle system, an active driver assistance system, an intelligent infrastructure, intelligent logistics, and machine vision. This uses LPC2148 of ARM as the core controller in the smart vehicle so as to achieve a real-time operation system (OS) μC/OS-II. This controller works as the control system to operate the entire vehicle. The real-time μC. OS-II enhances the performance of control and simplifies the design and management of software. In addition, this system uses voice-driven principle, improving the human interaction between machines and operators. The utilization of high-precision of ultrasonic sensors on obstacle avoidance robot provides a guarantee for safety. And the usage of LCD as the machine interface facilitates the debugging and control of robot. The work undertaken in this paper explains the impact of autonomous vehicles on society. The work includes a background section which gives information about the history and technology of autonomous vehicles. To evaluate the socio-economic effect of the autonomous vehicles, we review the benefits and economic savings that will emerge as a result of the introduction of autonomous cars in the economy. Impacts on safety, traffic flow, fuel economy, professional driving and culture are some of the important issues mentioned in this paper.
