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]

SafetyNex measures driving expertise, risk taken consciensly by the driver, lack of anticipation

SafetyNex measures driving expertise, risk taken consciensly by the driver, lack of anticipation I – INTRODUCTIONNEXYAD has been developing the smartphonte application SafetyNex which estimates the risk of driving in real time [1]. SafetyNex is both a driver assistance system (ADAS), which alerts the driver (vocal alert) before danger (When the risk increases too much), and a telematics system that records risk profiles and usage profiles.Warning before the danger gives the driver time to slow down and avoid the accident. Road Safety... [Lire la suite]

Deep changes in the business of car insurance. Contribution of smartphone App SafetyNex in this global context

Deep changes in the business of car insurance. Contribution of smartphone App SafetyNex in this global context  1 - Role of the insurer The insurance idea would have appeared on the occasion of the first great journey by boat, and the appearance of "modern" insurance is generally dated from the 19th century. The principle of insurance is easy to understand : if accidents are rare (compared to the number of occurrences - travel, car trips, etc.), a simple and prudent idea then is to "put aside" a certain amount of money for...

Detecting hypovigilance, fatigue, and distraction with the NEXYAD real time driving risk assessment SafetyNex

Detecting hypovigilance, fatigue, and distraction with the NEXYAD real time driving risk assessment SafetyNex SafetyNex estimates driving risk in real time. The approach is to estimate if the driving behaviour (speed and acceleration) are appropriate or inappropriate to the infrastructure difficulty : on a disused airport, high speed and aggressive behaviour is not dangerous, although it is in front on a school, or approaching a narrow curve, etc ... read more :...

SafetyNex driving risk profiles may solve the problem of hypovigilance and fatigue detection

SafetyNex driving risk profiles may solve the problem of hypovigilance and fatigue detection SafetyNex is a nomadic real-time risk estimation system, based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The system has been described in detail in previous publications and uses the key concept of "near-accident" or "quasi-accident", and is a result of 15 years of collaborative research with road safety experts and researchers. See http://www.safetynex.net The main competitive advantage of SafetyNex is that it allows, since the risk is... [Lire la suite]

SMARTPHONE APP SafetyNex COULD REDUCE ACCIDENT RATE BY 20%

SMARTPHONE APP SafetyNex COULD REDUCE ACCIDENT RATE BY 20%   I - ONBOARD TELEMATICS AND AUTO INSURANCE : REMINDER Onboard telematics now can measure behavior of a driver, and therefore, car insurers have early started this adventure of connected car, more or less successfully. The simplest applications that have been deployed are: . locate stolen vehicles . measure the usage of the driver, and in particular the number of kilometers traveled in order to propose adaptive pricing (vehicle that always stays in a garage will never have...
