Disruption in autonomous driving : AD system adaptive to driving risk

Disruption in autonomous driving : AD system adaptive to driving risk NEXYAD has been developing an Artificial Intlligence - based software component that monitors the driving risk that an AD system is currntly taking (at each moment). It is the risk in terms of road safety (not the inherently functional safety of the AD system).It is the first time that the driving risk is explicitely computed and available in a car.Then the AD system can be aware of th risk it is currently taking.If risk is too high, it is possible to apply...

CEO OF NEXYAD WAS A SPEAKER AT THE PARIS CHALLENGEr STARTUP & INNOVATION SUMMIT ON AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE)

CEO OF NEXYAD WAS A SPEAKER AT THE PARIS CHALLENGEr STARTUP & INNOVATION SUMMIT ON AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) NEXYAD was pleased to participate to this summit on Artificial Intelligence. We could explain how our Artificial Intelligence -based software component SafetyNex is now Embedded in many products worldwide and how it transforms industry (aftermarket for telematics - fleets & insurance -, new vehicles - cockpit and AD systems ). We also explained how such a module, via a reward system, can be used by B2C mass market... [Lire la suite]

HIGH LEVEL FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION OF A SELF-DRIVING VEHICLE (POINT TO POINT, ANY DESTINATION) : WHAT ABOUT DRIVING RISK ?

HIGH LEVEL FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION OF A SELF-DRIVING VEHICLE (POINT TO POINT, ANY DESTINATION) : WHAT ABOUT DRIVING RISK ? A general usage self-Driving vehicle is an object that picks you at a point A (that may be anywhere) and takes you to a point B (that may be any reachable point from A), as fast as possible, in comfort and safety.And that's it (main features).   Now let's see each feature : a . as far as possible : it is the actual efficiency of transportation, as mobility is a key element of Economy b . comfort : it...

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY

NEW LEAD TO TRANSFORM AUTONOMOUS DRIVING LEVEL 3 TO LEVEL 5 AUTONOMY Car manufacturers like WAYMO and TESLA has been developing high value Autonomous (AD) systems that are said to be level 3. AD systems are complex architectures in a feedforward chain : . perception. Sensor fusion. Situation understanding and holding. Decision making. Actuators Such a feedforward chain is validated on crossings of use cases recorded in huge databases.The problem is that it is not possible to validate a feedforward chain on a database and know...

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking

Computing onboard, in real time, the risk that the driver is currently taking There is a software component called SafetyNex that can compute onboard (and not on the cloud), in real time (and not on a back office server one week after), at each moment (i.e. 20 times per second), the risk that driver is currently taking. This driving risk is computed with anticipation. The software component is called SafetyNex, proposed by the company NEXYAD (We Save Lives). If driver is a human being, it has been shown that alerting driver a few... [Lire la suite]
