NEXYAD SafetyNex in Media

 
Here is a news in French press that talks about the Academic Chair that the cluster of startups and SMEs « MOVEO Groupement ADAS » organized with INSA Rouen.
NEXYAD is part of this cluster of high-tech startups and SMIs (on ADAS, connected car, and autonomous driving) and is quoted in this article of Journal du Net (French spoken), they interviewed Mr Aziz Benrshair, director of the “Autonomous and Connected Vehicle” Academic Chair launched by INSA Rouen :
Comment ces partenaires contribuent-ils concrètement ?

“Ils assurent environ 50% de l’enseignement. Des experts de ces entreprises viennent enseigner sous forme de TP ou de TD. Ils transmettent leur savoir faire et expliquent les projets sur lesquels ils travaillent. La société Sherpa Engineering est par exemple intervenue sur les questions d’actionneurs, de prise de décision et de commande automatique. Nexyad a abordé l’analyse du comportement du conducteur, proposée par sa solution d’évaluation des risques d’accidents SafetyNex. Des partenaires historiques extérieurs à cette chaire, comme Valeo ou Vedecom, sont également intervenus.”

The value of driving risk notion
for Telematics, ADAS and Autonomous Driving

 
The value of driving risk notion for Telematics, ADAS and Autonomous Driving.

by NEXYAD

Every year, more than 25.000 persons die on roads in Europe which has the safest infrastructures anyway. Brasil, Russia, USA, have more fatalities and the situation is worst in development countries. Everywhere people are aware by these risk for their health or life. Driving can be dangerous for drivers and passengers, however most of people accept these risk fairly minimal (in average three dead by billion km in OECD countries) for all advantages of fast point to point terrestrial mobility. But by the way, what is exactly what people use to call driving risk?

Let’s take an example, if someone plays Russian roulette: probability to die is one on six when one pulls the trigger. If one decides finally not to play, probability to die with a bullet in the head disappears completely. If you pull the trigger, risk to die is 100% (although probability is 1/6).
Another example: if a car is static parked into garage, then driving risk is zero. On the opposite, if a car passes a stop sign at 20km/h, driving risk taken by the driver is equal to 100%: driver takes the full risk). Probability depends on the traffic at the intersection.

More generally, driving risk taken by driver (and we talk about “the risk you take” a priori) will goes from 0 to 100% depending on the adequate of driving behaviour to driving context. This driving context has several dimensions: complexity of infrastructure, traffic of other road users, weather conditions, etc. Inadequate of driving behaviour to complexity of infrastructure can predict 75% of accident.

SafetyNex and the compliance Package of
CONNECTED VEHICLES AND PERSONAL DATA

 
In march 2018, french CNIL will publish the final version of the Compliance Package for the Connected Vehicles and Personal Data.

NEXYAD appears in the list of Bodies consulted by the CNIL (p.3). An interesting article about the collected data shows that SafetyNex is fully compliant with french law and recommendations for European Union (p.25).

Extract :

DATA COLLECTED

The data control shall only collect personal data that are strictly necessary for the processing. In the case of a contract for the provision of services, the only data that can be collected are those that are essential for the provision of service.

Concerning data relating to criminal offences:

For purpose 1 (model optimisation and product improvement) and 3 (commercial use of the vehicle’s data): except in the case of specific legal provision, data that are likely to reveal criminal offences shall not be processed by legal persons who do not administer a public service,
except to defend their rights in court. However, that data can be processed locally, directly in the vehicle, in accordance with scenario No. 1, in order to give the user control over that particularly sensitive data and limit as much as possible the consequences on privacy.

strong caracters are made by Nexyad

Reminder: onboard systems, telematics devices or smartphone Apps, which collect speed and location data, allow easily to make reconstruction of criminal offences.

Proceedings of the 2014 CESA

Posted on

General Information

Nexyad was at the CESA Congress (organized by sia) on 3 and 4 December 2014.

Our presence was at three levels:
. Participation in the round table on the development of ADAS
. Publication on a methodology for validating adas (ADAS validation)
. Presence on the booth ADAS Mov’eo Group

The congres was full of contributions, and main important points we noticed are:

. Emergence of new business models opportunities for high-tech SMEs technology in the world of ADAS
. Strong awareness of the need for ADAS test and validation methodology
. Emergence of highly structured sensors strategies for classifying

ADAS in terms of features, cost, operating range, robustness, …

. Round table

Participants in the roundtable were:
. Maria Belen Aranda Colas, Robert Bosch
. Ching-Yao Chang, University of Berkeley
. Thierry Lehay, PSA Peugeot Citroën
. Patrice Reilhac Valeo
. Gabriel Toffolo, Renault
. Gérard Yahiaoui Nexyad

Questions focused on the need for standardization of HMI and on the need to create new job profiles and competences to effectively develop ADAS and autonomous vehicle, and also on the opportunity for SMEs to find new business models in this ADAS field. Also mentioned the need for standards methods and tools For ADAS validation. Nexyad exposed the opportunity for SMEs to use the nomadic systems of image acquisition, computing and storage (smart phones). these new devices make it possible for SMEs to imagine B2C applications.

. Publication of Nexyad

Nexyad presented the AGENDA methodology that was originally developed in the 90 to specify learning and test data bases for training and validation of artificial neural networks applications.

It appears that this methodology is completely adapted to the specification of ADAS validation
databases.

Nexyad is also currently integrating this methodology in an upcoming tool that will send host such a database and easily manage all crossings of road scenes variability factors (work in collaboration with the SMEs Intempora and Civitec).

During the same session other organizations (Daimler for instance) also presented very interesting for the validation of ADAS.

The proliferation of interesting ideas on this key issue is rather good news and suggests a significant advance in the near future.

Compte rendu du CESA 2014

Posted on

Information générale

Nexyad était sur le congrès CESA (organisé par la sia) les 3 et 4 décembre 2014.

Notre présence était sur trois plans :

. participation à la table ronde sur l’évolution des ADAS
. publication sur une méthodologie de validation des ADAS
. présence sur le stand groupé du Groupement ADAS de Mov’eo

Le salon a été riche en contributions, et les points importants que nous avons notés ou communiqués sont:

. l’émergence de nouvelles opportunités de business models pour les PME de haute technologie dans le monde des ADAS

. la prise de conscience forte de la nécessité de disposer de méthodologie de test et de validation des systèmes ADAS et des fonctionnalités de délégation de conduite.

. l’émergence de stratégies capteurs très structurées permettant de les classer en termes de fonctions ADAS, de coûts, de distance de fonctionnement, de robustesse, …

. Table ronde :

Les participants à cette table ronde étaient :
. maria Belen Aranda Colas, Robert Bosch
. Ching-Yao Chang, University of Berkeley
. Thierry Lehay, PSA peugeot Citroën
. Patrice Reilhac, Valeo
. Gabriel Toffolo, Renault
. Gérard Yahiaoui, Nexyad

Les questions ont porté sur la nécessité de standardisation des IHM, sur les nouveaux métiers à créer pour développer efficacement les ADAS et le véhicule autonome, et sur l’opportunité pour les PME de trouver de nouveaux business models dans ce paysage des ADAS. A aussi été mentionné la nécessité de disposer de moyens standards de validation des ADAS. Nexyad a exposé l’opportunité pour les PME que constituent les moyens nomades d’acquisition d’images, de calcul, et de stockage (smart phone). Ces moyens nouveaux permettent en effet aux PME d’imaginer des applications B2C.

. Publication de Nexyad :

Nexyad a présenté la méthodologie AGENDA qui avait initialement été développée dans les années 90 pour spécifier les bases de données d’apprentissage et de test des réseaux de neurones artificiels. Il apparaît que cette méthodologie soit tout à fait adaptée à la spécification des bases de données de validation des ADAS.

Nexyad est d’ailleurs en train d’intégrer cette méthodologie dans un futur outil qui permettra d’adresser une telle base de données et de gérer simplement tous les croisements de facteurs de variabilité des scènes routière (en collaboration entre autre, avec les PME Intempora et Civitec).

La session a permis à d’autres organisations (dont Daimler) de présenter des approches très intéressantes pour la validation des ADAS.

Le foisonnement d’idées complémentaires sur ce sujet clé est plutôt une très bonne nouvelle et laisse présager d’une avancée significative dans un avenir proche.
