A Game Changer for Road Safety: the Global Road Safety Platform by NEXYAD

A Game Changer for Road Safety: the Global Road Safety Platform by NEXYAD NEXYAD recently launched a Global Road Safety Platform that can assess driving risk, onboard, in real time, 20 times per second. This technology is a game changer for road safety: currently under deployment for telematics matters (fleet risk management, and Usag Based Insurance), it has been shown and validated that alerting driver when risk starts to increase a little to much can reduce accident rate by 20%. See figure below:   NEXYAD proactive... [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,...

EVENT : NEXYAD WILL BE AT CONSUMER TELEMATICS SHOW IN LAS VEGAS IN JAN 6th 2020

EVENT :  NEXYAD WILL BE AT CONSUMER TELEMATICS SHOW IN LAS VEGAS IN JAN 6th 2020 NEXYAD will be at CTS Las Vegas the 6th of January 2020. We will present our technology SafetyNex. SafetyNex is an Artificial Intelligence Software component made to be integrated into telematics products, and that computes in real time, at each moment, the driving risk that driver is currently taking. This software componant can be integrated into smartphone apps, telematics devices, beacons, dashcams. It can be used to alert driver with... [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]

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]

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]

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...
