Some drivers are quiet but still dangerous (in a road safety point of view)

Some drivers are quiet but still dangerous (in a road safety point of view) : Most people think that brutal drivers (strong braking, etc ...) are dangerous. The hypothesis is that they do not anticipate enough and then they areled to brake very strongly. Many Insurance Companies developped their own onboard "dirving style" estimation that scores this kind of hypothesis. Unfortunately, this idea (that seems to be logical) is not validated by facts : there are brutal drivers that are not dangerous, and there are quiet driversthat are... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD ADAS : onboard connected system for responsible driving estimation (eco and safe driving)

NEXYAD proposes a new connected onboard system that measures driving behaviour signature : SafetyNex developed by NEXYAD is used with EcoGyzer (developed by NOMADIC Solutions), in order to plot this signature. A responsable driver is as most Eco as he/she can and always safe (road safety is not an option at all). This application leads to behaiour diagrams :  Road safety and Ecodriving are two completely different ideas that are not correlated : the 4 combination exist : . safe and non eco. eco and non safe. eco and safe....

NEXYAD ADAS : comparison of 4 driving behaviours using SafetyNex and EcoGyzer

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are a nex field of development and economic growth in the automotive sector. Many tools are under construction in order to prevent the driver from many mistakes that may lead to accidents. This even might lead in certain condition to autonomous driving (driving delegation). Insurance companies are interested in such systems.  Especially those who want to implement an efficient "pay how you drive"tarification/pricing. NEXYAD developed an onboard module (called SafetyNex) that scores road... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD ADAS : driving behaviour signature Safety x Eco using SafetyNex V2.1 and EcoGyzer

Here are 4 driving style on the same road :. good driving : both Safe and Eco. Bad driving : often non Safe and non Eco. Sportive but Safe driving : Safe most of the time (except during 4 seconds during 1 min 30 seconds) but often non Eco. Quiet but Dangerous drinving : always Eco but often non Safe Every second a point is plotted of the diagram. Eco score is measured with EcoGyzer (by the company NOMADIC Solutions) and Safety scoreis measured with SafetyNex (by the company NEXYAD). The more up the more Safe, the more right the more...
