RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DRIVING RISK YOU TAKE AND ACCIDENT : THE "S" CURVE THEORY

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DRIVING RISK YOU TAKE AND ACCIDENT : THE "S" CURVE THEORY Let's say in a manufacture there is a very dangerous machine that may grind up your hand. If you are 10 km away from the machine, risk is "very" low. If you are 1 km away from the machine, risk is the same. If you are 10 m away from the machine ... risk is still very low ... but if you come closer (let's say 10 cm), suddenly risk becomes high ! This is not linear. In road safety, the Artificial Intelligence algorithm SafetyNex estimates 20 times per second... [Lire la suite]

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT

NEW ARCHITECTURE FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING INVOLVING DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT Architectures of Autonomous Driving systems use to be feed forward open loop chains that are supposed to give a good solution to any problem. Inputs come from sensors that are fusionned in order to bring a good situation understanding. Then a decision making system sends what to do to actuators. This works fine, but of course, whatever the number of validation scenarios, there will always exist cases where the glabal system is not adapted to the situation. ... [Lire la suite]

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many accidents such as recent UBER accident

A French startup has all the Artificial Intelligence technologies needed to avoid many automous car accidents such as the recent UBER accident We all saw videos of the UBER VOLVO accident. The dashcam video shows that visibility conditions were very poor and that the pedestrian is dressed in black (pullover) and crosses a road at night without any light and out of pedestrian crossing areas. This attitude is pure suicade and you wouldn't teach your children to behave this way. But even if this pedestrian shouldn't have been in the... [Lire la suite]

Soon, NEXYAD will transform your ordinary car into an intelligent car using ... your smartphone

Soon, NEXYAD will transform your ordinary car into an intelligent car using ... your smartphone NEXYAD developed 4 algorithm for intelligent connected car : . SafetyNex, system that alerts you while driving if and only if driving risk is too high. RoadNex, system that detects free space (drivable part of the road ahead). ObstaNex, system that detects obstacles. VisiNex, system that detects lacks of visibility (fog, snow, ...) All those modules are available to OEMs as API to be integrated inside valuable products (driving... [Lire la suite]

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...

Notion of driving risk in road safety

Notion of driving risk in road safety This short video explains what is driving risk according road safety experts. It is this notion that is used i the real time driving risk assessment module SafetyNex, developed by NEXYAD. NEXYAD is member of MOV'EO and member of the MOV'EO Groupement ADAS.

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...

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]
