Thanks to “La Sécurité Routière” the french Road Safety for its invitation at Vivatech 2019 in Paris ! For the first time this governmental institution presented the innovation award winners on a common booth dedicated to safer roads. NEXYAD is very much involved with Road Safety. Since 2000, we have worked on many national and international research programs with experts of 19 countries included Europeans, US and Japanese. Receive an award for SafetyNex is a great accomplishment for us and for our integrator customers.
We made a lots of precious contacts during this amazing show.
NEXYAD presenting SafetyNex for road accident prevention on the NEXYAD booth offered by French Government as a reward for the 2019 Innovation Prize of ROAD SAFETY that SafetyNex got last month from Ministry of Interior.
The French Road Safety invited other winners of 2019 Innovation Prize from different categories :
ABEILLES is an editor of Kid’s Educational Games from 3 to 12 years old, around Road Safety, Nutrition, First Aid, Health, Environment & Discovery.
GOOD ANGEL provides a revolutionary Connected Alcohol Sensor, in order to reduce the risk of drunk driving and to compensate for the lack of management solutions for drivers under the influence of alcohol and accompanying passengers. The reusable device is connected to user’s smartphone. In case of positive detection, a concierge service is proposed to pick up driver and passengers 24/7.
ELLCIE HEALTHY proposes smart connected frames designed to look after user everyday without any discomfort. They will evolve thanks to software updates, and user will be able to benefit from new features with the same connected eyewear purchased. Today their connected eyewear detects drowsiness; tomorrow they will detect falls, and even prevent them, allow activity tracking and a lot more.
G-ADDICTION is an association that organized Escape Games on themes like:alcohol, speed, drugs, phone and hands-free kit while driving; seatbelt; dangers of 2 wheels; compliance with the Road Code, pedestrians, and disability after the accident.
Nexyad CEO speaker at Challenge Startup & Innovation Summit
CEO OF NEXYAD WAS A SPEAKER AT THE PARIS CHALLENGEr STARTUP & INNOVATION SUMMIT ON AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) YESTERDAY, 2019 March 27th.
NEXYAD was pleased to participate to this summit on Artificial Intelligence. We could explain how our Artificial Intelligence -based software component SafetyNex is now embedded in many products worldwide and how it transforms industry (aftermarket for telematics – fleets & insurance -, new vehicles – cockpit and AD systems ).
We also explained how such a module, via a reward system, can be used by B2C mass market distribution firms to acquire consumers at low cost, in a “nudge” positive loop that will save many lives.
And we were very interested in other speakers presentations with so many different interesting point of views on AI.
Artificial intelligence is developing in many sectors including automotive. Zérotracas met Gérard Yahiaoui, CEO of Nexyad, who presented his SafetyNex driver alert solution. Thanks to its embedded artificial intelligence, SafetyNex computes at every moment the risk taken by the driver and the alert case of risk taking too important to improve its safety and avoid the accident. Check out the company that received the Innovation Award for Road Safety for this solution.
February 20th was held at the House of the RATP the award ceremony of the Innovation Road Safety Challenge and Innovation Road Safety Award. Through these two competitions, Delegation to road safety attached to French Ministry of Interior supports innovations that make the road safer.
Nexyad presented SafetyNex, Artificial Intelligence based software component that computes at each moment the Driving Risk (like the teacher besides you the day of the driving licence) that the driver is currently taking :
. for human drivers, a vocal alert makes you aware that your taking too much risk and then driver can slow down and avoid emergency situations
. for Autonomous Driving systems, it is possible to servo-control Driving Risk and keep it under a maximum accepted risk value : AD system becomes adaptive to risk.
All Nexyad Team is proud with this Innovation Prize !
The online network Global Fleet wrote an article about Nexyad:
Nexyad uses artificial intelligence to improve road safety
“75% of road accidents happen because of driver behaviour that is not adapted to local infrastructure,” said Gérard Yahiaoui, CEO, Nexyad. His company sells software components that use artificial intelligence to improve road safety. Fleet Europe wanted to know more about where his company came from and where it is going.
In June 2013, Nexus Communication has launched GLOBAL FLEET, the first networking and crossmedia platform for multinationals willing to optimize their fleet management through globalization. It provides professionals with in-depth knowledge and up-to-date information on global and regional fleet management as well as on BRICs and other economies on the rise.
