Government of Karnataka to expand ‘Automotive Safety Innovation’ project

Bengaluru, Mar 15 (UNI) Encouraged by the progress made in its ‘Automotive
Safety Innovation’ project with Intel India – along with Mobileye, an Intel
company – as its technology advisor, the Government of Karnataka today
announced its commitment and vision in making Karnataka roads safer for its
citizens.
The state Government highlighted the fact that the technology from Mobileye
and Intel along with the data sets captured from the ‘Automotive Safety
Innovation’ project could be leveraged by the high technology ecosystem
including start-ups, to help Karnataka achieve the highest level of road safety
in India according to a release here.
In November last year the State Government had undertaken the project to
boost technology development towards safer commutes in the state. In the
first phase of the project, potential accident spots were identified in the east
part of the city using school buses equipped with Mobileye’s Collision
Avoidance Systems (CAS). These systems have state-of-the-art vision
analytics that provide real-time warnings of potential collisions, leaving
enough time for the driver to react and avoid or mitigate the accident
altogether.
Areas with a high volume of warnings have been coined as ‘Grey Spots’ and
will provide state authorities with sufficient information to improve infrastructure
for road safety. This data can be leveraged by city planners, traffic department,
and state agencies to provide remedial measures to significantly bring down
the possibility of accidents and road fatalities in Karnataka, thereby enhancing
commuter, pedestrian and vehicle safety.
Karnataka IT and BT Minister Priyank Kharge commenting on the
development said the Government was committed to improving road safety
in the state and saving lives of people. ''Our goal is to reduce road fatalities
and accidents on Karnataka roads by 30 per cent in the next 5 years and to
achieve this, we are strengthening our collaboration with Intel and Mobileye,
a leader in the world of computer vision and machine learning for autonomous
driving to develop this road safety and real time driver assist solutions
enabling us save lives on Karnataka roads''.
The technology introduced by Mobileye and Intel and the data set captured
from the ‘Automotive Safety Innovation’ project could be leveraged by the
startup and local technology community to help Karnataka achieve the
highest level of road safety in India. .'' This gives me immense pleasure that
Karnataka is well on its path in becoming the first state in India for deploying
safety solution through technology innovation and public-private partnerships”
he added.
