Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones

Free Space detection in real time on standard architectures such as smartphones Here is the demo of RoadNex free space detection on a regular smartphone. Free space is detected in real time. On this version, "distant  sidewalks" are integrated into free space (it is an option) because sidewalks without pedestrians may be a option to avoid accident if it is not possible to brake as short as need and is the street is full of users. No need for a NVIDIA heavy computing architecture, no need for a MOBILEYE chip, etc ... Only 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]

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex

Low CPU consumption road detection and free space detection running in real time on a regular smartphone : RoadNex The company NEXYAD showed to its partners and customers at CES 2018 in Las Vegas the RoadNex road detection system running on a regular smartphone (using CPU and camera of the smartphone). RoadNex detectes two things, independently : . borders of the lane : borders may be road markings, other cars, construction area signs, pedestrians, bicycle, ... . free space : part of the world ahead that is flat and drivable...

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone

Free space detection with RoadNex : real time implementation on a regular smartphone  Panoramic movement (the most complex for any detection algorithm) with smartphone in hand (so calibration must be very robust as heigth and angle of camera is changing all the time). The goal of this free space detection is to detect as more drivable surface as possible (including sidewalks if not too high, including security area, etc ...). Indeed, the "lane" borders are detected by a borders detection algorithm (different from free space). ... [Lire la suite]

Hudly is an aftermarket HUD that can mirror your smartphone

Hudly is an aftermarket HUD that can mirror your smartphone Heads-up displays or HUDs are one of the best features in newer vehicles, as they allow drivers to keep their eyes focused on the road instead of on their in-dash navigation or their smartphone running Google Maps. Now, Hudly is looking to bring that technology to drivers whose vehicles don't currently support the feature with its aftermarket HUD. Hudly is a three-part system featuring a projector, transparent display, and a plug-in for the OBD-II Data Link Connector,... [Lire la suite]

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car

Smartphones, ADAS and the connected car Forget expensive pedestrian avoidance systems using embedded cameras and radars.   A new system being developed by General Motors explores how pedestrians’ smartphones could be used to alert drivers to potential collisions. And the broader automotive community is taking note. Automakers like Volvo and Toyota have unveiled pedestrian detection in the last few years, but those systems are based on refinements to in-car accident avoidance systems, such as vehicle-embedded cameras and...

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech?

Can in-car electronics catch up to consumer tech? Smartphone functions and capabilities don’t necessarily translate directly to in-car electronic systems, and the two sectors have very different demands and characteristics. Vehicle manufacturers have a number of extra factors to consider, such as safety, driver distraction, and the methods with which we interact with in-car tech. These are challenges for the industry to grapple with, but from a consumer point of view these issues are perhaps of less concern. How can this be... [Lire la suite]

2017 will be the year the connected car becomes a reality

2017 will be the year the connected car becomes a reality 2016 was full of talk of autonomy, but little action beyond crazy, futuristic concept cars and announcement after announcement from automakers. If this year's CES is any indication, 2017 is going to focused on connectivity. More than that, CES showed that traditional barriers between automakers are breaking down in favor of universal and open source technology standards that will benefit both consumers and developers.CES, traditionally a showcase for the...

Bosch connected motorcycle technology: innovative or unnecessary?

Bosch connected motorcycle technology: innovative or unnecessary? This week at CES in Las Vegas, international electronics and engineering company Bosch showed off a connectivity suite of technologies for motorcycles. It starts with the connectivity control unit, which links the motorcycle's onboard brain to the outside world, and finishes with the integrated connectivity cluster, which communicates with the rider via the bike's digital dashboard. In between is an interface called mySPIN that mirrors the user's smartphone –... [Lire la suite]

Google, Amazon eye car insurance

Google, Amazon eye car insurance The move into car insurance by tech giants - just when the industry faces the problem of a shrinking risk pool - was the topic du jour at a recent insurance industry gathering in Florida’s Boca Ratan. The conference delegates concluded that car technology and shared mobility is creating massive opportunities for disruptors to capture 20 per cent of the US$400 billion global car insurance market by 2020. Data analytics and consumer experience are key to the future of auto insurance, according to... [Lire la suite]
