Training and testing on way more edge cases, for dramatically improved smoothness and safety.
Building automated transportation systems means solving for the millions or more of risky traffic scenarios which individually are unlikely, but together make up the bulk of the risk.
But for the AV developer it's challenging to know how many edge cases there are, much less have certainty your AV will be able to handle all of them.
How can cities, municipal transit authorities, government regulators and developers know that AVs are safe before they hit the streets?
dRISK is integrating a massively diverse set of data and expert curation into the ultimate data resource for AVs. Rather than enumerating each one of an infinite set of edge cases, we invented a way to “map” all edge cases into a comprehensive taxonomy - a knowledge graph of risk - which acts as both an edge case database and evaluation space.
dRISK’s patented technology trains, tests and validates AVs on comprehensive sequences of edge cases derived from our massive knowledge graph. The result is a step increase in AV responsiveness and safety.
Along with our partners, we have been given a mandate to develop this technology into the first true driver's test for AVs.
dRISK currently serves some of the world's leading AV developers, transport authorities and insurers to train, test and validate autonomous vehicles before they are deployed.
We also work closely with a consortium of collaborators consisting of Imperial College London, Claytex Services Limited, DG Cities and Transport for London. Our group has collectively won a £3.6M grant from the UK's Department for Transportation and Innovate UK to commercialize our driver’s test for AVs.
