NEXYAD Presentation at SIA CESA 5.0

Posted on

The 5th and 6th december, International Conference SIA CESA 5.0 took place in Versailles (just near the Château).
The goal of the organisers is to build a bridge between traditional automotive electronics and the new developments in vehicle electrification and digitalization as well as those from the world of consumer electronics and the Internet of Things.
The event has presented a great opportunity to understand how the automotive business will evolve over the next five years, with a focus on products and services that are likely to transition from other markets into use-cases for automotive.

Gérard Yahiaoui, Nexyad CEO presented a new paper: Real Time Driving Risk Assessment for Onboard Accident Prevention :
Application to Vocal Driving Risk Assistant, ADAS, and Autonomous Driving.

CAR DETECTION WITH OBSTANEX
ON A REGULAR COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE

 

RoadNex_Short-B

 

 

CAR DETECTION WITH OBSTANEX ON A REGULAR COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE : LOW DEPLOYMENT COST, LOW ENERGY CONSUMPTION, LESS HEAT, etc.

Here is a snapshot of car detection using RoadNex.
The big differenciation of ObstaNex is that is runs on a regular computer architecture (on a smartphone for instance) : no need for a heavy computing system. It is then much cheaper for mass volume deployment (new cars and aftermarket), because heavy computing architectures bring computing speed, but also high deployment cost, Energy consumption, heat, etc … not that good for onboard systems.

FREE SPACE IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WHEEL ON SHORT DISTANCE (URBAN DRIVING APPLICATION)

 

RoadNex_Short-A

 

FREE SPACE IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WHEEL ON SHORT DISTANCE (URBAN DRIVING APPLICATION) : ON A REGULAR COMPUTER ARCHITECTURE IN REAL TIME

RoadNex Short (free space detection in front of the car) runs on regular computer architectures (even on a smartphone). This module is made for fast sensor fusion with lidar and radar.
It works even on dusty roads, stones (image below), cobblestones, etc …
RoadNex brings interpretation (drivable surface), telemeter (radar; lidar, …) brings measurement precision (in mm).
No need for a big computer (it means deployment cost reduction).
This disrupts some electronics architectures big firms that try to convince car manufacturers to put their computers Inside cars, but they do not bring only computing efficiency (they do), they also bring additional cost, weight, heat, integration room need, etc …
RoadNex runs on a regular ARM chip (for instance) and may be the next generation solution.

The next generation autonomous POD (Shuttle) MILLA made by ISFM uses RoadNex and will be shown at CES Las Vegas in Jan 2019.
Come to see it.

MOBILY-CITÉS INTEGRATION OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND MOBILITY – PARIS 9 NOVEMBRE 2018

Smart Mobility in 2018

Mobility is the cornerstone of contemporary societies and the changes underway will profoundly transform our uses and our movements.
Valued by our society, travel, in addition to being a social integration link, represents a freedom or a pleasure that can just as much be a servitude and source of exhaustion.
The LOTI Act of 1982 has led to focus on the centers of agglomeration, the stakes of today now focus on the peripheries low density and delivered to the car for 95% of trips.

COMPARE YOUR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING SYSTEM TO BEST HUMAN DRIVERS IN TERMS OF DRIVING RISK TAKEN AT EVERY MOMENT

 

You want to measure the efficiency of your autonomous Driving system in terms of road safety ? Not easy with the regular validation methods : observing the number of km without accident is NOT the key. Indeed, accident is very rare for human driver anyway : on OCDE countries, 1 accident every 70 000 or 100 000 km (depending on the country), and on average 3 death every billion km !
We bring a way to build a metric between YOUR system and better human drivers … using our real time Driving risk assessment module SafetyNex.
A new solution for you to imagine validation process.

FLEETS CAN TAKE BIG ADVANTAGE
OF REAL TIME DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT

 

FLEETS CAN TAKE BIG ADVANTAGE OF REAL TIME DRIVING RISK ASSESSMENT : MORE PROFIT, LESS PERSONAL INJURIES, AWARDS FOR SAFER DRIVERS, etc.

SafetyNex is now under deployment by fleet managers :
. alerting drivers BEFORE danger can reduce accident rate by 20% : this is money for the fleet, and also less personal injuries and death
. risk profiles at the end of every trip can be used to deploy serious games : awards and coupons for safer drivers
. risk information sharing : if one driver took a big risk at a given area, then it is possible to automatically warn all the other drivers during a few minutes about a potential danger at this area : “stay vigilant”

Two kinds of fleet managers :
. Professional fleet management companies
. Internal fleet managers of big firms
. for the commercial fleet for instance
. for every employee through Corporate Social Responsability budget

Those ongoing deployments will make big money and will save lives at the same time.

ANTICIPATION vs NINJA REFLEXES
for ADAS and AUTONOMOUS DRIVING : IMPACT ON ACCIDENT

 

 

Exemple_of_Risk_Tree

 

Automotive industry is currently integrating into vehicles high level automations systems : automatic emergency braking, line keeping, etc … Those systems are complex : complex to do, complex to integrate together (as A system of systems), complex to validate.
