Real time driving risk assessment for autonomous driving systems improvement

Real time driving risk assessment for autonomous driving systems improvement Autonomous driving systems usually have the following structure: This chain takes a road scene and delivers an action: for 1 road scene, 1 action.Then, if the road scene is different from those imagined by engineers, the action is potentially wrong and it is dangerous. This chain cannot adapt to new unknown situations. NEXYAD has developed a unique innovative Global Road Safety platform that computes in real tim at each moment (20 times per second), the...

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE V2 FOR INTELLIGENT VEHICLES

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE V2 FOR INTELLIGENT VEHICLES Now Artificial Intelligence (AI) is applied with success in many fields of Automotive applications. NEXYAD company made a breakthrough by developing their onboard real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex : "at each moment, 20 times per second, we know the driving risk that the vehicle is currently taking, and then we can first record this risk, and second, act on driver (alert) or act on vehicle (ADAS or autonomous vehicle) in order to reduce risk", said Gerard YAHIAOUI,...

An Autonomous Vehicle that drives like a good human driver

An Autonomous Vehicle that drives like a good human driver Autonomous véhicles are one of the main R&D subject in automotive sector. Autonomoy has been described in a functional way and classified in 6 levels, from 0 to 5. Today, intelligent cars that are for sale (TESLA, ...) are said to be level 3, and some car munifacturers claim that they have demo cars with a level 4. The chain of the Autonomous Driving System (AD System) is quite always a feed forward chain, from sensors to actuators, and applies or may apply Artificial... [Lire la suite]

Disruption that makes autonomous driving level 5 possible : SafetyNex technology

Disruption that makes autonomous driving level 5 possible : SafetyNex technology Most consultant and experts on automotive prospection tend to postpone the arrival of full autonomous driving. Their method is simple : they consider the current level 3 autonomous systems, and they estimate the number of examples in a database and the number of operation calculation should be done to improve the level 3 and cover "every" use cases. But this method is wrong. Indeed, the current AD Systems can be described as a chain as follow... [Lire la suite]

Simulation based approach for testing and validation of autonomous vehicles

Simulation based approach for testing and validation of autonomous vehicles On the first glance, autonomous vehicles seem to be just a simple continuation of the development of assistance systems which help the driver keeping the lane, holding the distance to other vehicles and avoiding accidents, with the vision of avoiding 80% of all accidents, because they are mainly caused by human errors. However, there is huge challenge with respect to the requirements on system performance and reliability for this step. As Herrtwich mentioned... [Lire la suite]

SELF-DRIVING CAR MUST DRIVE "WELL" IN REGULAR CONDITION … SOUNDS EASY ? READ THIS BEFORE AND THEN TELL

SELF-DRIVING CAR MUST DRIVE "WELL" IN REGULAR CONDITION … SOUNDS EASY ? READ THIS BEFORE AND THEN TELL Human drivers don't have the sharp reflexes of ADAS. But they have only 1 accident in average every 100 000 km and 3 fatalities in average every billion km (OECD). Drivers that have the best reflexes are in average the Young ones - 18 to 25 - (biology). However, they also have much more accident than the 50 years old drivers (not as fast as they used to be when they were 20). Well, it seems that finally road safety is not... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD CEO conference of Artificial Intelligence for Insurance and Fleet Telematics at MEETUP organized in DUNASYS location

NEXYAD CEO conference of Artificial Intelligence for Insurance and Fleet Telematics at MEETUP organized in DUNASYS location NEXYAD CEO presented the Artificial Intelligence based module SafetyNex that computes at each moment the driving risk that the driver is currently taking. This risk can be used for : . alerting human driver with anticipation, letting time to slow down slightly and avoid emergency situation : this solution reduces accident rate by 20% . alerting the AD-system of Autonomous Car that will servo-control its...

About ADAS (Advanced Driving Support System) and AD (Autonomous Driving)

About ADAS (Advanced Driving Support System) and AD (Autonomous Driving)   2. Positioning of ADAS in Autonomous Driving ADAS is generally positioned at level 2 of Autonomous Driving . This means that the driver is the subject of decision making.In other words,when an accident occurs the driver is responsible, that is,humans. 3. Common points between ADAS and Autonomous Driving ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) and AD ( Autonomous Driving ) are useful for extracting useful information from... [Lire la suite]
