But with no distraction, no anger, no rush, no mood, just like the day of patent when one have it… An Autonomous Driving System (AD System) is NOT a system that can detect “everything” and can react then the right way to “every detected situation”.
Human driver is much safer, in average, at 50 years old than at 18, although detection capabilities and reflexes are much better at 18. Improvement of safety comes from anticipation capabilities and application of safety rules in absence of detection.
NEXYAD proposes the technology SafetyNex that computes in real time at each moment the risk that the driver (human being or AD system) is taking. 75% of the Driving risk comes from the inadequation of Driving behaviour to infrastructure characteristics (so for those 75% no need for mobiles detection, and SafetyNex can assess this risk with only a GPS, a digital map, and accelerometers. With SafetyNex, the AD System is “AWARE” of the Driving risk it is currently taking and then can Apply heuristics of cautiousness even without (before) detecting any problem : i.e. slightly slowing down before a priority to the right … is a rule of cautiousness that avoids MANY accident without need for accurate ADAS detection.Driving behaviour becomes then more “human”
Here is a video of ObstaNex, by NEXYAD, detecting cars with a regular smartphone, feeding the real time Driving risk computing SafetyNex with additional inputs such as Interdistance, for instance.
ENHANCED safety functionality for everyone (every smartphone or modern dashcam owner). Detection results may vary a little depending on quality of camera, but anyway, it brings safety alerts and can save your life.
Already integrated into dashcams for intelligent telematics.
Gérard YAHIAOUI presented Artificial Intelligence SafetyNex at Meetup “Connected Vehicles : Technologies and Applications organized by Laurent Dunys, COO of Xmotion.
This meetup took place at Dunasys with a speech of Frédéric Lassara to explain Dunasys activities.
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.
