New President of MOV’EO Rémi Bastien Interview

Rémi Bastien interview, the new President of competitive cluster Mov’eo and also President of VEDECOM Institute and VP Automotive Prospective of Renault Group.

Mov’eo is a Mobility and Automotive R&D competitiveness cluster, which since 2006 has been mobilizing its energies at the service of its members to meet the objectives assigned by the State to competitiveness clusters: to foster the development of collaborative projects between members, to contribute to development in the regions of companies, in particular SMES, and to promote innovation in the sector.

Created in february 2014, VEDECOM is a French Institute for Public-Private Partnership Research and Training dedicated to individual, carbon-free and sustainable mobility.

The new MOV’EO President quote NEXYAD SafetyNex at the beginning of its intervention…


SafetyNex can bring Artificial Intelligence into Autopilots in respect of ASIL ISO 26262

SafetyNex integration in the ASIL 26262.

Complex Automation MUST be ASIL ISO 26262.
Artificial Intelligence CANNOT BE ASIL ISO 26262 (by definition) and acts only on parameters of Complex Automation doing ++/– – variations, never skipping « reflexes actions » (emergency braking, etc), but allowing anticipation speed adaptation to reduce frequency of emergency situations (and then give more margin to reflexes actions and also improve comfort). Maximum acceptable Driving Risk can be changed depending on driving situation in order to set « aggressivity level» of HAV.

SafetyNex driving risk estimation during driving : anticipation of danger

SafetyNex estimates driving risk 20 times per second, during driving (real time).
On the following figure, you can see risk rising when approaching a stop sign with an inappropriate car speed :

Example of driving 1
Speed of the car is quite high before the STOP sign and Risk goes to the maximum with a vocal alarm to the driver which have time to slow down or brake to stop.

Now with a slower speed profile :

Example of driving 2
Speed of the car is lesser here but still too high approaching the STOP sign, there is a vocal alarm again but for lesser time.

And finally the “good” safe speed profile :

Example of driving 3
There is a good anticipation here before the STOP sign, speed is adequate and risk is very low, then null.

This estimation is computed INSIDE the local device (inside the car). Current implementation is on smartphones (IOS and Android), then computing of risk is completely done INSIDE the smartphone : that makes SafetyNex compliant with all driver’s privacu regulations and laws in Europe.

Applications :
. insurance and fleets : vocal alert when risk is too high. As you can see, it lets time to slow down and avoid potential accident. This leads to a reduction of accident rate and a reduction of personal injuries. Of course, risk values can be recorded to do stats (risk profiles) for UBI (Usage Based Insurance) applications. 
. Automotive : same application is navigation with risk alerts. But with a robotized braking system (ADAS), it is possible to trigger braking with risk value. In such a case, it is not emergency braking but rather anticipation braking. 

In addition, it is possible, in the case of HAD (highly Automated Driving) car, to control speed (longitudinal part of auto pilot) very easily : “if risk too high, then slow down”, “if risk is low, then accelerate until risk becomes the max value you accept or until you’re at the speed limit”. You write your autopilot with very few lines of code !


Bravo LeddarTech !

Ground Reality with Nexyad Validation DataBase

EtiquetageFree space ground reality (for RoadNex) and obstacles ground reality (for ObstaNex)

NEXYAD has been developing a methodology called “AGENDA” (published in the 90’s by Gerard YAHIAOUI in the field of machine learning and artificial neural networks applications). Here is an example of ground reality : ground reality is needed in order to automate performance / KPIs measurement when you modify the perception system.


Nexyad will be at Imagine Mobility Meetings

Table ronde avec Nexyad sur le véhicule autonome à BFM Business

INTEMPORA and NEXYAD, members of MOVEO Groupement ADAS on Major French TV (BFM Business)

1st Nov 2017, the Tech & Co tv show on the subject : will self-driving car come sooner than expected ?

Nicolas du LAC, INTEMPORA, and Gerard YAHIAOUI, NEXYAD, presented their innovations and explained how the MOVEO Groupement ADAS helps to be stronger for their innovative startups.
Nicolas talked about RT-MAPS that is a software tool for R&D, making easy the task of developing applications with multiple sensors (cameras, lidar, radar, …) that of course are not synchronized and that must collaborate through algorithms of sensor fusion in order to get good objects detection and recognition.
Gerard talked about SafetyNex that is an onboard real time module that is the only module in the world that can estimate driving risk 20 times per second. Self-driving car can then know the risk it takes with and it simplifies the development of autopilot (example : “if risk too high then slow down”).

Tech&Co est le nouveau RDV de l’actu du numérique sur BFM Business réalisé avec Sébastien COUASNON et ses invités commentent les grandes tendances qui bouleversent les acteurs de l’économie : voiture autonome, drones, réseaux sociaux,…

Et si le véhicule autonome arrivait plus tôt que prévu ?
Ce mercredi 1er novembre 2017, Sébastien Couasnon et ses invités se sont intéressés à l’arrivée des voitures autonomes sur nos routes. Et si le véhicule autonome arrivait plus tôt que prévu ? On en parle avec: Jean-Edmond Coutris, directeur du département Automotive chez Emerton. Gérard Yahiaoui, vice-président de Mov’eo. Et Nicolas Du Lac, fondateur d’Intempora. – Tech & Co, présenté par Sébastien Couasnon, sur BFM Business.
