SafetyNex driving risk estimation during driving : anticipation of danger

SafetyNex driving risk estimation during driving : anticipation of danger SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, during driving (real time). On the following figure, you can see risk rising when approaching a stop sign with an inappropriate car speed : Now with a slower speed profile : And finally the "good" safe speed profile : This estimation is computed INSIDE the local device (inside the car). Current implementation is on smartphones (IOS and Android), then computing of risk is completely done INSIDE the... [Lire la suite]

Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) using SafetyNex

Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) using SafetyNex Intelligent speed adaptation (ISA) is a new field of ADAS. Indeed, after deploying "reactive ADAS" (emergency braking on automatic detection), it seems interesting to give the car the ability to "understand" the road scene context and then to adapt its speed in anticipation. The aim is to minimize the number of emergency situations to face. It is exactle what a good driver does when approaching an intersection with priority to the other road : you slow down a little (and it is not... [Lire la suite]

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle

Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion for ADAS and driverless vehicle The French High-Tech startup NEXYAD recently presented their module SafetyNex. SafetyNex is a real time driving risk assessment system. Of course, Driving Risk makes everyone think of car insurance and fleet management. And it is a natural application (deployment has already started). But it is important to note that Driving Risk is also a key notion for ADAS and Driverless car. Indeed, Driving Risk happens when there is no adequation between Driving Behaviour and Diving...

What is driving risk and why most apps DO NOT measure it although they seem to be interesting

What is driving risk and why most apps DO NOT measure it although they seem to be interesting Driving risk assessment is now of interest of : . telematics solutions providers . fleet managers (for prevention) . car insurers (for prevention, and UBI) A lot of applications then explain how they estimate driving risk. But, by the way, what is driving risk ? A lot of people seem to think that driving risk and accident are quite the same. If I observe accident, then I will learn and do stats and find a way to estimate driving risk.... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD member of Groupement ADAS interviewed in MOV'EO Imagine Mobility days

NEXYAD member of Groupement ADAS interviewed in MOV'EO Imagine Mobility days NEXYAD presented the Road safety ADAS SafetyNex : a smartphone App that alerts the driver before danger, letting time to slow down and avoid accident. SafetyNex can then reduce accident rate by 20%. SafetyNex may also be used for automatic braking (anticipation braking) before dangerous area (ex : priority to the right) : the first intelligent ACC with anticipation to avoid accident. SafetyNex also records risk profiles for fleets managers and car... [Lire la suite]
