Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex

Presentation video of the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, and alerts driver when risk increases too much, letting time toslow down and avoid accident. NEXYAD has been developing this module that is already under deployment for car insurance and professional fleets (decrease the accident rate because driver is alerted and can avoid some accidents).SafetyNex is also under integration into ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and Autopilots because for those...

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle

Perspectives: Real life safety, advanced driver assistance systems and the ESF Experimental Safety Vehicle Mercedes-Benz showcases driver assistance systems simulator at the 2010 Canadian Internation Auto Show TORONTO, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - Real life safety, that's what it's all about. The Mercedes-Benz philosophy for safety is much more comprehensive than simply focusing on crash tests alone. It takes the findings from accident research into account and integrates active and passive safety systems based on more then 70... [Lire la suite]

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety?

OLDER DRIVERS AND ADAS: Which Systems Improve Road Safety? In the coming decades, the number of older drivers that experiences difficulties in traffic as a result of functional limitations will strongly increase. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) could resolve some of these difficulties, by providing personal assistance in a road environment that does not always allow for the possibilities and limitations of the older road user. As a result, ADAS would extend the older adult's safe mobility as a driver. The aim of this paper... [Lire la suite]

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets

The many benefits and few slight catches over ADAS featuring in increasing numbers of car and commercial fleets We’re as delighted as most organisations to have witnessed the proliferation of advanced driver assistance systems – or ADAS – over the last few years, contributing heavily to making our roads safer until fully autonomous vehicles and their prerequisite infrastructure arrive. New ADAS technologies are emerging all the time but core functionalities include adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot... [Lire la suite]

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications

The Coming Revolution in Vehicle Technology and its BIG Implications We are on the threshold of a radical change in vehicle technology. No, it’s not automation, although that will come very soon. Instead, change is being driven by the underlying technology for automation that is already here and advancing rapidly; that is, crash avoidance technology delivered by advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS for short. ADAS makes safety and marketing sense. Whether it is Daimler, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, GM, another vehicle OEM or... [Lire la suite]

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20%

SafetyNex (real time driving risk assessment smartphone App) can alert driver before danger and then reduce accident rate by 20% The company NEXYAD recently launched their smartphone App SafetyNex. SafetyNex analyses driving behaviour in real time and estimates the degree of adequation of this driving behaviour to road context. In the low cost implementation, context is only the road infrastructure configuration : distances, curves, intersections, functionalities of infrastructure (pedestrian crossing, school, ...) and traffic signs...

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

13 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automotive safety technology is pretty easy to wrap your head around, but advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are a little harder to pin down. At this point, the debate over whether anti-lock brakes are really necessary is pretty much nonexistent, but most technologies classified as ADAS are still seen as luxuries or even amusing curiosities. The issue is that advanced driver assistance systems are systems and features that provide a driver with essential information, automate difficult or... [Lire la suite]

Road Vehicle Automation: Safety Impact and Future Solutions

Road Vehicle Automation: Safety Impact and Future Solutions In order to ensure EU Road Safety 2020 target of 15,700 fatalities and long term vision of zero road fatalities could be realistically met, the EU and vehicle manufacturers have plans to introduce more automation technologies into road vehicles and eventually reaching an autonomous future. This research aim to justify the need for increasing automation in road vehicles by assessing the key accident causal factors and the safety impact of Advanced Driver Assistance System...
