Nexyad CEO Editorial



We are happy to share with you the fact that NEXYAD is in the process of passing a decisive milestone in its development.

Some OEMs want to integrate our AI software modules in series cars and then mass-distribute them. It is the case in particular of our AI SafetyNex, which calculates the prudence of the vehicle’s movement in its environment at all times.
It can then alert driver if prudence is too low, and also paste recommended prudent speed at all times (function expected by EuroNCAP).

This recommended speed may also be used to control longitudinal behavior of an autonomous vehicle, or of a contextual predictive ACC (city, road, highway) in the traffic.

In parallel with this activity, which is starting for new vehicles, our Indian integrator and distributor MONTBLEU Technology is preparing a massive deployment for fleets and insurance companies (aftermarket) of this same IA SafetyNex.

They’ve been developing an impressive smartphone App that integrates our API and that brings a news generation function for road safety.


Indeed, prudence assessment brings anticipation and helps avoid emergency situations that may lead to accident.

Even our MVP (Minimum Viable Product) that uses only GNSS, vehicle speed, and digital map (read through an electronic horizon) can reduce accident rate by 25% (theoretically assessed AND practically measured by customers).

This MVP is easy to integrate into a smartphone for aftermarket, and may also interest OEMs for entry-range level vehicle (effective ADAS “without” sensors).

In order to support these technological and commercial successes, NEXYAD has started its fundraising cycle, with a first round of fundraising successfully closed in March 2023, and a second round in preparation.

We will be then able to help our customers make safer and simpler vehicles, all over the world.

You are welcome to contact us and ask for a demonstration of our DREAMOTOR1 vehicle in the Paris area: powerpoint is not enough, come try for real.

Join us and be proud to deploy advanced Artificial Intelligence for the good.

Gerard, CEO of Nexyad

NEXYAD 1st Fundraising


St Germain en Laye, March 8th 2023.

NEXYAD just finished to raise funds, for the 1st time (1st time, 1st round).

Raised funds : 570 000€

A small fundraising that gives their first “market price” to actions. This price is rising everyday as we get more and more good news. Investors in NEXYAD will not be disappointed.

This 1st round is to be followed by 2 others, as car OEMs intend now to put NEXYAD AI software modules into series vehicles, and as Tier One Companies intend to integrate those AI modules into their products.

A new exciting adventure has started.

In addition, our integrators in aftermarket PRUDENCE assessment solutions for fleets and insurers are currently starting mass deployment. NEXYAD AI PRUDENCE calculation module SafetyNex (MVP version) will be soon used worldwide, running into smartphones and telematics devices (Minimum Viable Product).

Good news in this current depressed world.

We are proud to share. Take the wave with us.

NEXYAD visits Autonomy 2023 in Paris


Paris, Porte de Versailles, March 22th 2023.

Nexyad visited Autonomy 2023 to discover what is new in the world of Mobility : electrification, soft mobility, charging facilities, Autonomous vehicles, car-sharing, insurances, technologies for fleets, etc.

Autonomy gives opportunity to meet all urban mobility key leading players, policy makers, governments, corporates, institutions, NGOs, and startups, to keep up to date with the latest market developments and regulations,and learn about latest innovations.

Autonomy is also conferences, workshops, test tracks, and we were happy to network with nice partners (who recognize themselves on pictures) and also with prospects and suppliers.

NEXYAD Demo Vehicle DREAMOTOR 1 on its way to become a new Generation Autonomous Vehicle


St Germain en Laye, March 10th 2023.

Now DREAMOTOR1 is piloted by our AI SafetyNex for vehicle automatic speed control (longitudinal part of autonomous vehicle, that  is also called sometimes Predictive ACC or Contextual ACC). Vehicle slows down automatically to stay PRUDENT (that the only criteria) when needed and else accelerates to speed limit. No complex control laws, no cut into use cases: process is continuous and the only value to control is PRUDENCE level. First implementation under fine tuning at NEXYAD is what we call our MVP (Minimum Viable Product): no ADAS sensors, only digital map, electronic horizon, and GNSS.

In the following months, we intend to integrate NEXYAD perception solution involving a camera (at least one) and a lidar. Perception will use NEXYAD perception AI software modules:

. VisiNex that measures visibility and detects lacks of visibility such as fog, heavy rain, lack of lighting, snow, etc

. RoadNex that detects drivable surface of the road plus lines

. ObstaNex that detects any object and recognizes vehicles, and pedestrians (soon more objects)

From this NEXYAD perception kit the 1st additional information that will feed the AI software module SafetyNex is interdistance, the second will be weather conditions, and the 3rd will be “presence of vulnarables”.

V2X will also feed SafetyNex with hazard warnings.

NEXYAD has shown that lateral control of vehicle is also possible by using the notion of PRUDENCE.

This will be done in 2023.

An Autonomous Vehicle on a new kind, based on PRUDENCE CONTROL, will then demonstrate that this new paradigm is lean (computing power, memory, …), efficient, in-used-monitored (with prudence assessed 20 times per second), and then finally TRUSTABLE (for people, for insurers, for authorities). A revolution that may enable market.

News of Dreamotor1 democar by NEXYAD


St Germain en Laye, January 20th 2023.
Dreamotor1 has been automated for longitudinal function, acceleration and brake can be controled by SafetyNex AI via computer. YoGoKo and SBG Systems Antennas are now permanently fixed on roof. More use-cases to come for demos, in particular with V2X info. We organize demos of 30mn in Guyancourt around Renault technocentre for automotive, fleets and insurance professionals.
DREAMOTOR1 can be piloted: . manually: showing pasting of prudent recommended speed (required by EUroNCAP and UN) . by SafetyNex directly: if PRUDENCE is too low then slow down, else, accelerate to speed limit (one line of code, no complex servo-control laws)
It is the 1st step of development of NEXYAD Autonomous Vehicle piloting system. We have already shown that in theory our completely new approach based on PRUDENCE assessment is also applicable to lateral control, we are currently working on it to upgrade DREAMOTOR1.
Today, the longitudinal control in all traffic conditions may be called Predictive ACC, according to STELLANTIS Vocabulary. We published a scientific paper explaining the revolution we bring in Autonomous Vehicle and ADAS, pasting some results of STELLANTIS Predictive ACC piloted by our PRUDENCE assessment AI SafetyNex : LINK TO SCIENTIFIC PAPER
Just to summarize, look at the following situation:
 . If we know what is behind the bus, and if there is nothing (*), it is possible to drive straight ahead, not slowing down, and still be PRUDENT (because nothing and no one may surround from behind the bus): Autonomous Vehicle Behavior #1 (*) e.g., cameras on the infrastructure + V2X, or Front Camera of the bus + V2X
. If we do not know what is behind the bus, it is then NECESSARY to slow down, and if possible keep left, in order to be PRUDENT: Autonomous Vehicle Behavior #2
One can then notice that VEHICLE BEHAVIOR is no longer a desired prerequisite, but a consequence of PRUDENCE TARGET and of EQUIPMENT SET. Different vehicles with different equipment set can be automated and prudent, but with different behaviors. It is then possible to develop Autonomous Vehicle with a big variety of equipement (from cheap to complete): they will adjust their behavior to stay prudent, anyway.
This is a revolution for Autonomous personal Vehicle because behavior becomes the adjustment to what is not known by the vehicle.

A complete Game Changer, what we call at NEXYAD “flexible thinking”.

And in the end, Autonomous Vehicle piloted by PRUDENCE assessment can also PASTE its prudence profile: . insurance issues . road safety and legal issues
Our AI SafetyNex is an eXplanable (XAI) hybrid (or composite) physics-informed AI. SafetyNex is also a causal AI. And because it assesses PRUDENCE (which is a human notion), we can say SafetyNex is a Responsible AI. No black box effect.
AI can change the world faster than some people think.
Thanks to integrator team FH Electronics.
