Traffic jams just a math problem, says Israeli AI firm

#artificialintelligence

Israel's traffic congestion ranks near the worst among developed economies, but an algorithm can help, says one of the country's IT firms engaged in the auto and mobility sector. ITC, or Intelligent Traffic Control, was one of the artificial intelligence players at Tel Aviv's recent EcoMotion showcase where high-tech and AI firms hope to make transport more efficient and cleaner. Its AI software collects real-time data from road cameras and then sends instructions to manipulate traffic lights based on vehicle flows. "ITC managed to prove mathematically that many traffic jams can be prevented –- if you intervene early enough," said its co-founder and chief technology officer Dvir Kenig, citing a 30 percent drop in traffic at the two junctions using their system. The company says road congestion is a global scourge, calculating that the average driver spends three days a year stuck in traffic, also pumping out greenhouse gas emissions.

Here's how AI, computer vision will change driving - EcoMotion 2022

#artificialintelligence

Earlier this month, the EcoMotion 2022 conference took place, where companies and experts from across the automotive technology industry gathered to showcase the latest innovations defining the sector. Autonomous vehicles were also present at the conference, with new technologies showcased by companies such as the driving system verification platform Foretellix. The company's platform is used by companies like Volvo, MobilEye and Amazon Web Services to verify the safety and viability of the software used to direct Autonomous Vehicles and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems. The company recently closed a $32m investment round, with its overall capital raised reaching $50m since it was established in 2018. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Innovation Lab in Tel Aviv was present at the conference, looking for the latest innovations to utilize in future cars and services offered by the alliance members' companies. The lab's mission statement is to advance state-of-the-art mobility, with the main focus on vision sensors, cybersecurity, EV and data & AI.


SEAT is experimenting with technology that studies a driver to detect if they're falling asleep

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Spanish car manufacturer Seat is working on technology to track a driver's eyes and spot signs of drowsiness. The firm has partnered with an Israeli firm that has built an algorithm than scrutinises a driver's eye openness, angle of vision, blink rate and head position. Eyesight Technologies uses cameras and sensors and combines this with artificial intelligence to spot early warning signs the driver may be falling asleep.

The hottest startups in Tel Aviv

#artificialintelligence

Tel Aviv is the city with the highest number of startups per capita in the world, according to the 2018 Global Startup Ecosystem report -- more than 6,000, of which 18 are unicorns. The city's tech cluster, dubbed Silicon Wadi, is home to more than 100 venture capital funds, plus hundreds of accelerators and co-working places. "Tel Aviv is transitioning from startup nation to scale-up nation," says Eyal Gura, co-founder of Zebra Medical Vision. Amit Gilon, an investor at Kaedan Capital VC fund, agrees – adding that Israel is not just about successful B2B companies anymore, such as Checkpoint, Nice and Amdocs, but also about "big B2C success stories like Playtika, Wix, Fiverr and others". Founded in 2015, Arbe has built a 4D ultra-high-resolution imaging radar for cars.


Guardian's In-Car Camera Watches the Driver--And Everyone Else

WIRED

If sometimes you feel like somebody's watching you, get ready to feel that way all the time. At least if you spend a good amount of time in your car. And you'll only be more surveilled in the future, as automakers find new and more efficient ways to keep track of what's happening inside their vehicles. One of the latest tools in this move toward a, let's say senior sibling, state comes from Guardian Optical Technologies, an Israeli outfit promising a whole new view of what's happening inside the car. This week at CES in Las Vegas, the Tel Aviv-based startup showed off what it calls Optical Cabin Control.


Porsche invests in Israeli artificial intelligence startup

#artificialintelligence

Porsche has bought a minority stake in Tel Aviv-based startup Anagog to expand its expertise in digital technology. Anagog has developed software that analyses user behavior directly in the mobile phone, using sensors, and then predicts future scenarios on the basis of artificial intelligence. In February, Daimler took part in a round of financing for Anagog. Last year, Anagog and Daimler launched the EQ Ready App, which helps drivers decide whether it makes sense for them to switch to greener car technology by recording real journeys and comparing them with electric and hybrid vehicles. "We are keen to work with new companies to continue developing new digital offerings and launch these solutions in the market quickly so that customers can start benefiting from them," Thilo Koslowski, Managing Director of Porsche Digital, a unit of Volkswagen Group's Porsche sports-car business, said in a statement on Wednesday.
