NEXYAD, UN AS DE L’IA QUI FAIT MIEUX QUE TESLA ?

La PME française a mis au point un outil qui permet de calculer les risques en fonction du profil de la route, de l’environnement et de la vitesse. Ce système combine l’intelligence artificielle, des capteurs et des cartes de haute précision.

Lors du récent congrès sur les transports intelligents (ITS) de Hambourg, on a pu voir tourner dans les rues de la ville une Renault ZOE baptisée « Dreamotor 1 ». Et elle serait, selon ses concepteurs, l’un des plus sûres au monde. Pourquoi ? Parce qu’elle intègre un système d’intelligence artificielle très évolué, fruit de 20 ans de recherche au sein de la PME Nexyad, et qui a fait ses preuves*. Ce système a pour nom SafetyNex et mesure 20 fois par seconde le niveau de risque en fonction du contexte routier (vitesse, analyse de l’environnement, type de route). Cet outil assez unique s’appuie sur les cartes pour GPS de haute précision de HERE Technologies, dans le cadre d’un partenariat. La ZOE intègre une fonction « safety coach » qui s’appuie sur des données en temps réel pour recommander au conducteur à quelle vitesse maximale il peut rouler. Précisons que ce coach peut aussi agir en cas d’urgence sur le régulateur de vitesse intelligent (ACC), s’il estime que le niveau de danger est trop élevé et en cas de non-réaction. Le système d’IA de Nexyad bénéficie à bord de ce prototype de l’apport d’autres technologies pour calculer encore plus précisément en temps réel le risque routier.

French Automovive Sector day “PFA” In Paris

 

The 26th of october 2021 took place at la Cité des Sciences et de l’industrie in Paris, the day of the French Automotive Sector (PFA). Many officials, president of PFA, Luc Chatel, Industry miniter Bruno Lemaire, and automotive executives as Luca De Meo CEOof Renault Group were present.
Nexyad participated and showed outside its demo car Dreamotor 1 (below).
 

 

DEMO ICIM (above) is a demo car of the French Automotive & Mobility cluster NEXTMOVE that integrates technologies of member SMEs including NEXYAD Cognitive AI SafetyNex. This demo car Demo ICIM is a « sister » of DREAMOTOR 1. NEXYAD and NEXTMOVE have a signed partnership to promote the two cars together and show the excellence in clean and intelligent vehicles.

 

Nexyad has launched the cooperative demo car DREAMOTOR 1 at ITS World 2021 in Hamburg

 

Our DREAMOTOR 1 car was not already available. What we call DREAMOTOR 1 V0 is a RENAULT ZOE that we’ve been renting in Hamburg. In this ZOE we installed a PC + sensors etc. and could showcase 3 automotive functions :

. Safety score : at the end of every trip, we give statistics of caution : driving behavior is described with caution profile, risk (= lack of caution) profile, and global scores such as driving caution score, anticipation ability score, driving skills score, and observed self-confidence score.
. Safety coach : during driving, caution and risk are estimatied onboard in real time (20 times per second), and then are used to give advices to driver in order to avoid incautious behaviors. It has been validated that this system reduces accident rate by at least 25%.
. Anticipative ACC and AD : in real time, knowing context, the same system can estimate 20 times per second what should be the good behavior in order not to exceed a max accepted risk (= lack of caution). In particular, what should be vehicle speed (which brings a setpoint value to ACC).

This V0 did not integrate already all the technologies of partners which bring for most of them new inputs to NEXYAD caution assessment cognitive AI in order to get a better description of context.
This will be done in DREAMOTOR 1 V1.

Some OEMs tried DREAMOTOR1 V0 in the streets of Hamburg (real tests in real streets) and NEXYAD got very good feedbacks. Now we are on partners technologies integration to improve functions.

Soon the next episode at PFA Day (journée de la Plateforme Française de l’Automobile) à Paris.

It’s been an exceptional CES for NEXYAD :
. a major firm of car exlectronics presented on their booth 2 products that integrate our SafetyNex API
. we has about 30 qualified meeting (and we took good shoes J)

Between two meetings, NEXYAD has visited the gigantic section for Automotive in CES 2019 : Central Plaza and North Hall + a part of Central Hall
Four major trends caught our interest : Lidar, Vocal Driver Assistant, Autonomous Pods and French Tech.

 

LIDAR
 

The lidar (light detection and ranging) becomes an inescapable technology that will be present inside tomorrow vehicles, whether for the ADAS or for the autonomous vehicle. Investors seem to have made big bets on and yesterday Lidar actors still non-existent or tiny have now clearly visible in the aisles of the show. Lidar can be electromechanical or solid-state much cheaper technology. It is easy to split the following lidar companies in two: the north americans and others.

In California, we have Ouster that sided with the high resolution; and Cepton that provides long range lidars; also Velodyne with a whole range of different products for different uses; Then AEye with its iDar combination of camera and lidar. In Montana, there is Blackmore providing solid state technology; In North Carolina, a new comer Sense Photonics. And the Canadian Leddartech solid state technology for mass deployment thru a chip for perception analysis. LeddarTech is member of the MOVEO ADAS Group with NEXYAD and a dozen of other high-tech companies for intelligent mobility.

RoboSense the Chinese company proposes several technologies: mechanical, solid state, laser scanner and also perception algorithms. Innoviz Technologies the israeli makes solid state and software perception. In South Korea there is SOS Lab with a product for self driving cars.

VOCAL DRIVER ASSISTANT
 

Everybody heard about vocal assistant, it is very popular for home use. Of course, those assistants arrive now into cars. Vocal Driver assistants make spoken human interaction with computers possible, using speech recognition to understand spoken commands and questions in natural language, and typically text to speech to play a reply. They are the primary way of interacting with virtual assistants on smartphones and smart speakers.

Difficult to miss Hey Google for example at CES this year. Besides Hey Google, there is OK Google and Google Allo. Google announces major automotive partnership with Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi to integrate its Android System into their future cars. Let’s bet that their Vocal Driving Assistant will be in the deal.

Android car

Amazon wishes putting Alexa into every car with Echo Auto. Anyway, Amazon Alexa Automotive and Here Technologies partnershiped for giving voice to car navigation.

Nuance is the pure player of this domain and showed this year an impressive new release of their Dragon Drive that brings the connected car to life through a natural language voice interface.

IBM Watson Assistant for Connected Vehicles is a digital assistant designed to enhance in-vehicle experiences, helping the automotive industry better understand and interact with drivers and passengers.

Vocal Driver Assistant
 

On the Pionner Booth, was demonstrated a Proactive Telematics product on smartphone with a beacon, and also a dashcam. Those 2 products send to driver vocal alerts before difficult ans dangerous situations and allow then to avoid accidents. Another way to assist driver (the Vocal Driving Assistant that can save your life).

AUTONOMOUS PODS & SHUTTLES

 

Most of the Autonomous Vehicle presented to CES were manufacturers or tier one companies intentions for future or stylish Demo Car. Besides, future seems to be moving away year by year, full autonomy will be difficult to reach most professional say.
The French Milla Group showed their electric Mobility POD and claims to be not only a prototype, but ready for different use cases: cities, industrial sites, University campuses, gated communities and resorts, at the commercial speed of 19Mph / 30Kmh with a price target compatible with massive deployment.

Note : Milla Group is member of the MOVEO ADAS Groupe through their subsidiary ISFM. One can notice that MOVEO ADAS Group had an incredible presence at this CES 2019.
