Assuring Safety through AI and Dash Cams
U.S. Based startup Pioneers the Future of Self-driving Vehicles
Although Google, Apple, Uber, and Intel are among the major IT corporations that are in a heated competition to develop and reach what is known as Level 4 automation in the field of self-driving vehicles, the U.S.-based Tesla has already brought to market partial driving automation technologies.
With such self-driving vehicles, an algorithm, a formula to identify and calculate the next move of pedestrians and cars from video information is required to realize automation. However, to develop such an algorithm, it is said that a massive amount of driving data will be required.
Nauto, a U.S.-based startup, is a company that is developing an image recognition technology called “computer vision” and its AI’s algorithm. Not only does the AI-connected dashcam Nauto sells protect the driver’s safety, but also built within it is a grand ambition that will pave the way for the future of autonomous driving.
After graduating from the School of Law, Osaka University, IDA joined Toyota Motor in 2006. After obtaining an MBA, he joined Beepi, a Silicon Valley-based startup, to participate in the launch of an online-used car marketplace. The following year, 2017, he joined Nauto. In June of the same year, he returned to Japan the same time the Japanese subsidiary was established and assumed the position as its head.
A startup that launched in Palo Alto, California, in 2015.
They developed a system that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to learn driver behaviors and driving conditions in real-time.
The aim is to improve the safety of self-driving vehicles by analyzing and using the captured data from their system.
