Ford learned to expect places of future accidents


When at the road the plate "Carefully hangs! The emergency and dangerous site", it means that there was not one road accident. But specialists of the Ford company found a way to reveal pieces of roads with the menacing potential in advance. And it allows to take antiemergency measures before victims appear.

the Staff of division of so-called "clever mobility" traced Ford Smart Mobility and entered in the database detailed actions of drivers on various sections of roads. For example, it was considered where drivers brake with what force press on a pedal and when include emergency fires.

of Analytics collected the mass of data and compared them with police reports on road incidents. On the basis of it made a special algorithm of preliminary definition of those sites where road accidents are quite possible. After dangerous places are calculated, road services will need to remove an emergency component or to establish the corresponding road sign.

For a research Americans used 160 Ford Transit vans connected to virtual "cloud" where data on trips went. Cars passed on the London roads, having overcome more than 1 million km that it is possible to equate to 20 circumnavigations. In total cars knurled 15,000 days and transferred 500 million units of information.

Should reminding that not so long ago the staff of Ford conducted interesting researches as a result of which it was succeeded to define whether the fallen-down foliage on the carriageway constitutes danger. In more detail - here.
