Karnataka Government is strengthening its collaboration with Intel and Mobileye to develop road safety and real-time driver assist solution and to save lives on its roads.
The Karnataka government, since November 2017, is working on ‘Automotive Safety Innovation’ project with Intel India – along with Mobileye, an Intel company – as its technology advisor.
In the first phase of the project, Mobileye’s Collision Avoidance Systems (CAS) equipped school buses were used to identify potential accident spots in the eastern part of Bengaluru.
CAS are systems having vision analytics that provides real-time warnings of potential collisions, giving the driver enough time to react and avoid or mitigate the accident altogether.
The project identified ‘Grey Spots’ i.e. areas with a high volume of warnings. This information will the provide state authorities with sufficient information to improve the road safety infrastructure.
The data sets captured from the ‘Automotive Safety Innovation’ project could be leveraged by the high technology ecosystem, city planners, the traffic department, and state agencies and start-ups, to provide remedial measures and help Karnataka achieve road safety in India.
