Detecting ‘Aggressive Driving’ With Machine Learning And Edge Computing

intersection image segmentation
A recent patent application has proposed a system for identifying ‘aggressive driving behavior’ at junctions using machine learning algorithms deployed in civic edge computing devices.In contrast to recent innovations of AI research into in-vehicle ‘road rage’ analytics (primarily intended for the benefit of insurance companies), the system proposed is instead municipal in nature, and could be aimed at facilitating penalties for drivers that are not conforming to the ambient norms of ‘safe’ driver behavior. It is also specifically intended to provide bad drivers with related in-car audiovisual alerts.The patent was filed at the US Patent and Trademark Office on 29th April 2021 on behalf of the Board Of Regents of the University of Michigan, and the Denso corporation, a Japanese automotive components manufacturer owned by Toyota.The...

Verizon and Honda want to use 5G and edge computing to make driving safer – TechCrunch

Honda and Verizon are researching how 5G and mobile edge computing might improve safety for today’s connected vehicles and the future’s autonomous ones.  The two companies, which announced the partnership Thursday, are piloting different safety scenarios at the University of Michigan’s Mcity, a test bed for connected and autonomous vehicles. The aim of the venture is to study how 5G connectivity coupled with edge computing could allow for faster communication between cars, pedestrians and infrastructure. The upshot: Faster communication could allow cars to avoid collisions and hazards and find safer routes. [Disclosure: TechCrunch is owned by Verizon Media, which is itself owned by Verizon.] The 5G testing is in its preliminary research phase and Honda doesn’t intend to implement this new technology as a product feature just yet.

New computing methods are always in high demand, yet the public has been paying relatively little attention to the promising development of edge computing. This is tragic, as edge computing is driving a new era of CDN technology forward by enabling that which was once dismissed as belonging to the realm of fantasy. Modern edge computing methods and content distribution networks (CDNs) are coming together to reshape our world – it’s time to start paying them the attention they deserve. Here’s a review of how edge computing is empowering a new era defined by CDN technology, and why a drastic overhaul to our digital infrastructure is on its way. Interconnectivity breeds problems Living in an interconnected world is lovely…until it’s not. While the digital era has brought with it a myriad of blessings and advancements, it’s also delivered...
