Excerpt

A consortium led by Ford Mobility has developed a technology for predicting potential accident blackspots. In principle this involves answering the question: Where and when do accidents happen and why? The answers provided by the new system will enable towns and cities to take preventive measures to improve the safety of stretches of road that pose the highest risk. The system analyzes information from a variety of sources, including connected vehicles and sensors at busy intersections. In an 18-month follow-up project started in the summer of 2020, Ford has connected the systems of around 700 passenger and commercial vehicles in the British county of Oxfordshire. Telematics data, such as brake and accelerator pedal usage and steering wheel angle, will be combined with information from roadside sensors and evaluated. The sensors have been supplied by AI sensor specialist Vivacity Labs, which uses algorithms to analyze the movement patterns of motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.
