Nexyad CEO speaker at Challenge Startup & Innovation Summit

CEO OF NEXYAD WAS A SPEAKER AT THE PARIS CHALLENGE STARTUP & INNOVATION SUMMIT ON AI (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) 2019 March 27th.

Vincent Beaufils interviewing Gérard Yahiaoui, Nexyad CEO

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.

Many famous speakers gave their view during the day, such as Jacques Aschenbroich, Valeo CEO; Luc Julia, Samsung CTO & Senior Vice President Innovation; Antoine Bordes, Facebook AI Research Director; Luc Bretones, Orange Technocentre Director; Jean-François Copé, former minister: Marko Erman, Thales Technical & research Director;

Nexyad at Secours & Vous Congress in Paris

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 :

AWAKEN Car is a real solution to save motorists’ lives and reduce car theft. Real time notifications to emergency services, notifications during a vehicle theft, vehicle diagnostic, preventive maintenance, budget management and privacy policy.

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.

AI to Serve Road Safety

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.

Nexyad at VivaTech 16-18 may in Paris

Nexyad will present revolutionary SafetyNex, winner of 2019 Innovation prize by French Road Safety administration.

SafetyNex is a unique proactive solution to keep drivers safe on roads. This can reduce accident rate at least by 20%.

New Image Capture Campaign
for RoadNex & ObstaNex

Posted on

NEXYAD is starting a new image capture campaign in the summer heat of Paris suburb. Those new captured videos will sample the issue of strong casted shadows and will show robustness of our two Artificial Intelligence perception algorithms RoadNex (road border detection even without markings and free space detection) and ObstaNex (obstacles detection).
Database of NEXYAD applies the methodology A.G.E.N.D.A. (Approche Générale des Etudes Neuronales pour le Développement d’Applications) that allows to train deep learning with a compact learning database (knowledge-based selection of learning and of validation examples) with much better performance than with randomly selected massive databases.
Yes it is possible ! …
NEXYAD can then re-train ANNs for a special cam for instance, very quickly, with real maths KPIs instead of poor « percentages » estimators of effectiveness and robustness.
Try our AI perception algorithms, it will change a few things :
       . VERY robust detection
       . low computer load consumption (runs on regular architectures)
       . retrainable quickly is sensor technology evolves
