TEL AVIV, Israel, October 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
Tactile Mobility, the world's leading tactile data and sensing company, today is demonstrating the feasibility and importance of combining vision-based data with tactile data in order to develop better and safer autonomous vehicles and cities. The first-of-its-kind tactile mapping solution for road conditions is on display at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference in Tel Aviv this week.
Tactile Mobility collects "first principle data", such as wheel speed, wheel angle, RPM, paddle position, gear position, and then analyzes it to yield actionable insights, like vehicle-road dynamics, the vehicle and the road profile, in real-time. Pairing tactile data collection with visual automotive data yields "first principle-based" mapping of the road conditions alongside enriched visual media for the end-user. The two modalities produce a more robust and reliable output vis-à-vis both mapping and real-time auto responses. The pairing of Tactile Mobility's solution and the NVIDIA DRIVE compute platform will enable vital insights for road authorities and municipalities, i.e. real-time hazard detection and correction, as well as better informed road repair, that will improve urban planning, reduce road incidents, and build a smart city future.
During NVIDIA GTC Israel, the premier artificial intelligence and deep learning event, Tactile Mobility is showcasing a road conditions mapping solution for road authorities and municipalities that leverages Tactile Mobility's AI platform and the NVIDIA DRIVE platform. On the conference stage, Boaz Mizrachi, Tactile Mobility's CTO and Founder also demonstrated to the crowd how tactile data is used to train visual models and vice versa.
"We are thrilled to run our unique offering on the NVIDIA DRIVE platform in order to show the impact that adding tactile sensing has on mobility solutions, proving the power of combining visual and tactile data," said Tactile Mobility Founder and CTO, Boaz Mizrachi. "By leveraging NVIDIA's advanced AI car computing platform, we are able to offer enhanced vehicle performance and fulfill our goal of making safer mobility and smart cities a reality."
