COMPARISON OF HEALTH vs AUTOMOTIVE SECTORS FOR SAFETY

COMPARISON OF HEALTH vs AUTOMOTIVE SECTORS FOR SAFETY   NEXYAD poposes a comparison between HEALTH and AUTOMOTIVE sectors approaches for safty improvement. In particular, we explain that criticality assessment is very different from risk assessment: one notion (criticality assessment) is linked to emergency situations, and that the other notion (risk assessment) is linked to normal situations and the question "how to behave in order to avoid emergency situations". Here is the presentation:   Read... [Lire la suite]

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,...

BLACK SPOTS "THEORY" HAS NO MEANING FOR ROAD ACCIDENT

BLACK SPOTS "THEORY" HAS NO MEANING FOR ROAD ACCIDENT Everyone has heard about "black spots" where there would be a concentration of road accident and some companies try to build a map of them … This is doomed to failure. Imagine yourself, blindfolded, darting on a wall. Each time you finish, you inspect and note the areas of impacts concentrations ... Of course, at each turn, the areas are elsewhere! because it's only random with an insufficient number of repetitions . Well, that's exactly what you do when you record traffic... [Lire la suite]

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR PROACTIVE TELEMATICS

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE FOR PROACTIVE TELEMATICS Onboard telematics for vehicles is a huge market  :   Appications are : . geolocation. predictive maintenance. eco-driving. navigation. IoT for ads and marketing. UBI (Usage Based Insurance). and now : ROAD SAFETY Road Safety is a very complex filed of study where everyone thinks he/she knows almost everything (because we are drivers) but that is much more complex than it seems : . there is a theory of risk (triangle of risk by Frak E. Bird) : quite no one has read it... [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]

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]

Introducing the ADAS risk score

Introducing the ADAS risk score Swiss Re to launch new Motor solution: the ADAS risk score. The score (to be launched in 2019) will enable insurers to better price ADAS equipped vehicles. Motor insurance is one of the most important lines of business for our clients and car automation is now a major topic for the industry. On the journey towards autonomous vehicles, cars are increasingly equipped with advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) that actively support the driver in avoiding accidents. Swiss Re research shows that these... [Lire la suite]

ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption

ROI of car and truck telematics deployment : disruption Now there is a buzz about telematics devices and onboard smartphone Apps, even Dashcams, with applications to fleet management, motor insurance pricing, etc. Features are geolocation, predictive maintenance, eco-driving scoring, driving risk assessment ... All those features may bring a Return On Investment (ROI), but in the long term only. And long term (a few years) is not easy to predict. It is one reason why we hear so much but we see few real large scale deployments. ... [Lire la suite]

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...
