NEXYAD finally sees the result of its hard work and of its industrial agreements signed those last two years with integrators that develop their own products for road safety on the basis, among other technologies, of our SafetyNex software component. This unique and disruptive SafetyNex technology revolutionizes both telematics on board and autonomous vehicle, and is starting then to be deployed by NEXYAD integrators at the end of 2019. SafetyNex for fleets and motor insurers brings a huge ROI : accident rate reduction by 20%.
This is a new start for the company that has spent some 20 years developing deep tech very high level Artificial Intelligence technologies:
. SafetyNex software component, that brings anticipation to drivers and to AD systems
. Three computer vision software components that can be considered as additional option bringing addition inputs that transform SafetyNex into “Augmented SafetyNex”:
. VisiNex : detection of lacks of visibility such as fog, heavy rain, snow or sand storm, …
. RoadNex : semantic segmentation that detects the drivable surface of the road (free space)
. ObstaNex : detection of objcts (possible obstacles) such as cars, pedestrians, …
All those algorithms are now available as directly integrable software components (SDK / API) by our customers into their products.
See full presentation of Nexyad
We present in this issue of our newsletter the first products developed by our integrators, based on our technologies, that are starting their mass volume deployement, and we also present global news of NEXYAD activities.
Gerard, CEO of NEXYAD

NEXYAD was proud to see the first navigation tool based both on WAZE and SafetyNex, developed by SOFTEAM, amazing idea to gather WAZE powerful navigation skills with unique risk alerts (with anticipation) of NEXYAD SafetyNex technology that reduces accident rate by 20%.</ br>
See below the smartphone screen capture of some samples of a trip with alerts:
NEXYAD is partnering with Brightmile which is a Kamet Ventures company incubated & backed by AXA. Brightmile integrated (among other technologies) real time driving risk assessment software component SafetyNex into their complete risk management smartphone App.
We all could recently read on the press good news of this very talented team :

NEXYAD has worked those last two years on a collaborative R&D project, in partnership with HERE, IFSTTAR, POINT CORE, PREVENTION ROUTIERE. This project aimed to enable SafetyNex usage to motorbikers. We are glad to announce that this project, co-funded by Région Ile de France, and accredited by French Research cluster FINANCE INNOVATION is a success. The R&D consortium quality was unique (test and validation, field operational test, electronics, digital map, …)</ br>
SafetyNex will soon be deployed for motorbikes.

NEXYAD integrators are currently deploying their telematics products (smartphone App, electronic device, dashcam), based among other technologies on SafetyNex. Main markets for those first deployments are :
. Motor insurance
. Fleet management
. Driving school
Some of our integrators then urgently needed to have a truck version that would paste right speed limits (for any kind of truck, any transported products, any country) and that would modulate risk assessment for truck use case. This version is available in Oct. 2019.

September 18th, Nexyad still involved in training Master level students through the Pedagogic Chair under the direction of Pr. Aziz Bensrhair. Gérard Yahiaoui presented research activities of Nexyad and particularly Driving Risk calculation in real time to INSA Rouen Engineering School students, maths and computing option’s

NEXYAD had a booth at the famous Paris symposium VIVATECH. This booth was offered by French Ministry of Security/Police of the road (DSCR) that gave us the French Price of INNOVATION for road safety (for our software component SafetyNex):
SafetyNex technology is now validated and rewarded by experts on road safety. This makes the SafetyNex technology completely different from others. It is :
. validated by road safety experts, insurers, industrials
. real time on regular telematics devices, smartphones, and dashcams
. deployed for the masses through integrators
NEXYAD met new leads of customers from all over the world and will soon announce important collaborations. We also could meet other high-tech SMEs that will surely become new partners in the future.

NEXYAD was part of the IMAGINE MOBILITY FORUM that took place at the Engineering School ESCATA in the Paris suburb. NEXYAD was present with both:
. Groupement ADAS: a business cluster of High-Tech SMEs focused on connected and intelligent vehicles
. Groupement AI4Cities: a business cluster of High-Tech SMEs focused on applications of digital technologies to smart cities and mobility
NEXYAD showed films and demos of their 4 software modules ready for integration into products by customers:
. SafetyNex that computes onboard in real time at each moment the driving risk that driver is currently taking
. VisiNex that detects (from a camera) lacks of visibility (fog, snow, sand, dust, lack of lighting, heavy rain, …)
. RoadNex that detects (from a camera) the road and especially the free space (where it is possible to drive)
. ObstaNex that detects (from a camera) obstacles, in particular other vehicles
