The automation of vehicles could prove to have a substantial impact on the environment, although the nature of this impact could be beneficial or harmful depending on several factors. Because automated vehicles are much less likely to get into accidents compared to human-driven vehicles, some precautions built into current models (such as anti-lock brakes or laminated glass) would not be required for self-driving versions. Removing these safety features would also significantly reduce the weight of the vehicle, thus increasing fuel economy and reducing emissions per mile. Self-driving vehicles are also more precise with regard to acceleration and breaking, and this could contribute to reduced emissions. Self-driving cars could also potentially utilize fuel-efficient features such as route mapping that is able to calculate and take the most efficient routes. Despite this potential to reduce emissions, some researchers theorize that an increase of production of self-driving cars could lead to a boom of vehicle ownership and use. This boom could potentially negate any environmental benefits of self-driving cars if a large enough number of people begin driving personal vehicles more frequently.[53]
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) started the research and development of automated visual surveillance and monitoring (VSAM) program, between 1997 and 1999, and airborne video surveillance (AVS) programs, from 1998 to 2002. Currently, there is a major effort underway in the vision community to develop a fully automated tracking surveillance system. Automated video surveillance monitors people and vehicles in real time within a busy environment. Existing automated surveillance systems are based on the environment they are primarily designed to observe, i.e., indoor, outdoor or airborne, the amount of sensors that the automated system can handle and the mobility of sensor, i.e., stationary camera vs. mobile camera. The purpose of a surveillance system is to record properties and trajectories of objects in a given area, generate warnings or notify designated authority in case of occurrence of particular events.[70]

Ainsi qu’évoqué plus haut, le plus grand défi à relever dans l’automatisation des tests est la difficulté à les maintenir dans le temps. Aussi pour répondre à cette problématique, nous avons mis en place différentes stratégies, parmi lesquelles l’utilisation du Page Object pattern, ou encore des pattern plus évolués comme le Screenplay pattern qui est une approche pour écrire du code de haute qualité pour les tests automatisé et qui est basés sur les principes du SOLID on peut citer à titre d’exemple, le Single Responsability principle ou le Open Closed principle.


cents ans. Mais les outils numériques peuvent influencer leur mise en œuvre. Par exemple, pouvoir fournir immédiatement un retour pertinent à un élève lors de la réalisation d’une série d’exercices peut favoriser le processus d’automatisation. De même, pour comprendre un phénomène dynamique complexe (comme le galop du cheval), le fait de pouvoir […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/apprentissage-avec-le-numerique/#i_2513
