Hyundai is working with MDGo to create a raft of advanced safety systems for its future autonomous vehicles

Hyundai’s future autonomous cars could be able to predict what injuries their occupants may have sustained in a crash and inform the emergency services within seven seconds.

The South Korean manufacturer has teamed up with medical AI (artificial intelligence) start-up MDGo to develop a raft of advanced vehicle safety systems.

MDGo has created an intelligent injury analysis system that is able to monitor vehicle occupants in real time and alert medical services of any potential injuries in the event of a road traffic collision.

Combining this system with an array of sensors in its future cars, Hyundai will be able to provide emergency services with various pieces of information, such as how badly passengers have been injured and which vehicle safety systems have been activated, all within seven seconds of an accident occurring.

The system will enable the emergency services to better determine in advance what the scale of their response should be and how quickly they need to reach the scene of the accident.

Meanwhile, Hyundai will be able to use any new data obtained to improve the active and passive safety capabilities of its vehicles by bolstering crash structures and integrating new technology.

Youngcho Chi, president and chief innovation officer at Hyundai Motor Group, said: “MDGo possesses exceptional AI analysis technology optimized for driver safety.

“Through this technology, we expect a significant improvement in the emergency medical services of vehicles in the short-term, while our long-term goal is to provide innovations in the passenger experience of vehicle safety, utilising new technology that enables real-time physical monitoring.”

Sharing in-car camera footage with parents could cut young driver crash rates

Tristan Shale-Hester 2019-09-16 15:30 Researchers suggest dash cams that let parents to see how their children drive could reduce young driver crash rates The use of in-car cameras that allow parents to see the way their children drive could cut accident rates among young people, new research has suggested. When dash cams are used in conjunction with black box technology – specifically, accelerometers which record high G-forces when a car is driven in an erratic or dangerous manner – young people drive more carefully if they think the data may be shared with their parents. • The history of the driving test In a report entitled ‘Keeping Young Drivers Safe During Early Licensure’, commissioned by the RAC Foundation, Dr Bruce Simons-Morton says the technology essentially gives parents a permanent presence in their children’s cars. This helps deal with the catch-22 situation young drivers often find themselves in, where they need to drive on the road to get more experience, but in doin..
