Driver Assistance Systems have achieved a high level of maturity in the latest years. As an example of that, sophisticated pedestrian protection systems are already available in a number of commercial vehicles from several OEMs. However, accurate pedestrian path prediction is needed in order to go a step further in terms of safety and reliability, since it(More)
We present the results of laboratory measurements of the ion–ion recombination coefficient at different temperatures, relative humidities and concentrations of ozone and sulfur dioxide. The experiments were carried out using the Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets (CLOUD) chamber at CERN, the walls of which are made of conductive material, making it possible(More)
The future of intelligent vehicles will rely on robust information to allow the proper feedback to the vehicle itself, to issue several kinds of active safety, but before all, to generate information for the driver by calling his or her attention to potential instantaneous or mid-term risks associated with the driving. Before true vehicle autonomy, safety(More)
The spread of the Internet throughout society has sparked a revolution in the way many areas of knowledge are promoted. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are, potentially, such an area. By distributing geospatial information and ways to manipulate it across the Web, a universal broadcast service is achieved, allowing users to access data anywhere.(More)
The CLOUD data acquisition, online data analysis and control system, address the challenges of online monitoring, control and data plotting, while providing a centralized data repository with unified tools for data access and visualization. The system was optimized for rapid instrument integration and flexible data format processing. It was built upon open(More)
An integrated analysis of multiple instruments measuring concentrations of aerosol particles in the CLOUD (Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets) chamber at CERN obtains size and time dependent growth rates. A matrix inversion is performed twice: first to get size distributions from measured concentrations using instrument transfer functions; secondly to get(More)
