Analysis verifies safety of distributed car control system Driver assistance technologies, such as adaptive cruise control and automatic braking, promise to someday ease traffic on crowded routes and prevent accidents. Proving that these automated systems will work as intended is a daunting task, but computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University have now demonstrated it is possible to verify the safety of these highly complex systems. To do so, the researchers first developed a model of a...

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Aug. 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Few within the automotive industry would deny that the technological complexity of cars and trucks is growing at an exponential rate. Increasingly, the relatively simple stand-alone computing systems that once helped control the basic functions of engines, transmissions and braking systems have evolved into a network of highly sophisticated, electro-mechanical subsystems - or cyber-physical systems - autonomously controlling such...

  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
