The future of road safety and autonomous AI
Nervtech™ technologies enables synchronization with a set of external equipment for assessment of drivers’ physical and mental state in VR environment. Technology is used for simulating all required traffic and road scenarios for assessment of driver skills.
Over 1.2 million people die each year on the world’s roads, with 50 million more sustaining serious injuries and living with long-term adverse health consequences. Indeed, road accidents are the main cause of death among population between 15 and 29 years.
Of these accidents are caused by drivers’ incorrect behaviors such as speeding, distractions, influence of alcohol or other substances, etc.
Dollars per year of global damages, with $100 billion in insurance claims only in Europe.
CRITICAL SITUATIONS AND BEHAVIORAL EXCEPTIONS HAVE BEEN A HARD CHALLENGE IN ROAD SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES AS THEY ARE IMPOSSIBLE AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO BE FULLY REPLICATED IN REAL-LIFE SCENARIOS. THIS DROVE THE USE OF SIMULATED ENVIRONMENTS IN AUTOMOTIVE, NAVAL, TRAIN, MILITARY AND AEROSPACE INDUSTRY WITH GREAT SUCCESS.
Nervtech™ evaluation system is a perfect tool to study this kind of situations safely, and to observe and measure the human factor response, reactions and perception while they happen. Even further, NERVteh is by far the smallest realistic simulator able to collect millions of drivers’ data around the world, which after analyzed by an elaborate AI and machine learning technologies can effectively fit the missing pulse of human intuition into computer based automotive intelligence.
This technology can precisely measure how humans resolve critical situations with intuition and speed of reactions, from the biometric/neuro aspect and cognitive load. This data could serve as a basis for an automated critical situation resolution engine (CSRE). Moreover, the data can be used to program surrogate agents, which can be put in a large-scale simulation allowing AI and deep machine learning algorithms to learn from billions of neural network situations in just a few weeks’ time on real life road interpretation inside safe space of a computer run simulation.
Driver profiling with NERVteh allows insurance companies to evaluate their customers’ driving skills and potentially adjust the annual fees according to risk assessments. Other companies such as fleet operators, speciality vehicle owners or conventional transportation managers can be supported to simulate their designs and test it with real drivers, unveiling potential improvements, mistakes and operational cost savings. Finally, research centres and testing labs are able to deepen their safety and sociological research related to driving behaviours or capacities with our sophisticated simulators with advanced functionality for virtual immersion and data acquisition.
NERVteh analyzes relationships between biometrical/neurophysiological factors and driving maneuvers as well as investigating driver’s segments by analyzing the relationship between psychophysical evaluation, biometrical/neurophysiological factors and driving maneuvers.
