Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence : example for risk of accident (or Safety) computing

Experts say driverless cars will require artificial intelligence Automakers intending to bring driverless cars to market need to work as much on software design as mechanical engineering, the researcher leading Nissan Motor Co.’s automated-vehicle program said. Making cars that are “deliberative” in assessing road conditions, rather than just reactive, requires artificial intelligence, Maarten Sierhuis, director of Nissan’s Silicon Valley research center in Sunnyvale, California, said in an interview. The carmaker, which aims to... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD Intelligence : The Top Five Trends For The Connected Car In 2016

The Top Five Trends For The Connected Car In 2016   " ... Safety First — Security Will Be Big Universal security solutions won’t appear in 2016 but there will be many ingenious solutions available in 2016 that will begin to target how we can protect every layer of the car.  Alas, they won’t be integrated but will be available from each vendor separately.  A couple of interesting areas are new autopilot systems, controlling the trajectory of a vehicle without driver involvement and in-car proximity sensors that enable...

Driving behaviour monitoring for risk of accident estimation : SafetyNet

Driving behaviour monitoring for risk of accident estimation : SafetyNetBy NEXYAD INTRODUCTION The Insurance companies, the Automobile Manufacturers and their suppliers have every reason to measure driver behavior. This has already begun with the onboard devices of the insurers for their new "pay how you drive" business model : the idea of ​​car insurance companies is to modulate princing according to the dangerousness of behavior. Then every driver becomes unique and pays an ad-hoc price: An embedded device in the vehicle (or App... [Lire la suite]

NEXYAD ADAS : SafetyNex measure driving behaviour in a Eco-driving x Road Safety map

NEXYAD ADAS : SafetyNex measure driving behaviour in a Eco-driving x Road Safety map   The belief that brutal drivers (severe braking, etc ...) are dangerous and that quiet drivers are not dangerous, is complitely wrong, andNEXYAD could show that acceleration/braking style couldn't be correlated to danger and accident. Indeed, accident mainly comes frominadequate car speed for the infrastructure characteristics (curves, stop sign, school, ...). Here is a sportive driving style that is always safe (except during 4 seconds, on... [Lire la suite]

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 : 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...
