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...

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]

Connected car / Telematics : use case of a car insurer that deploys SafetyNex

Connected car / Telematics : use case of a car insurer that deploys SafetyNex Car insurers are interested in : . prevention : reducing accident rate is a real need, all accident, and particulary those that lead to personal injuries . data : SafetyNex records risk profiles and usafe profiles Here is a short video that shows how a car insurer can use and take benefits of SafetyNex deployment : SafetyNex episode 3 : The Car Insurer's Choice

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...

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...

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]
