CerebrumX Lab., Inc. and Roadside Telematics Corporation (RTC) have joined forces on a new solution that will enable fleets to improve driver safety and post-crash survivability. Specifically, the CerebrumX data management platform for connected cars, together with RTC’s RoadMedic, will deliver next-generation 911 emergency services insights for speedier, more accurate response.
The joint solution combines connected car vehicular emergency data platform with artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to unlock embedded intelligent crash sensor data in real-time for 911 first responders
The partnership will enable RTC’s RoadMedic to upgrade post-crash assistance and emergency services powered by leveraging CerebrumX AI traffic data, real-time crash data, and comprehensive insights — all customized for OEMs and automotive service providers.
The goal of the technology is to equip first responders to make informed decisions during emergencies and take swift actions following an incident — which, in turn, can help save lives after roadway collisions.
CerebrumX’s Augmented Deep Learning Platform (ADLP) uses AI and ML to unlock embedded vehicle data in real-time, including telemetry, diagnostics, first notice of loss (FNOL), driver behaviors and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), from the automotive OEMs. By converting this data into AI insights and sharing them with 911 first responders as and when a crash occurs, RTC and CerebrumX can significantly reduce 911 response times while empowering data-driven next-generation 911 emergency response, which will be more effective and efficient.
The new solution will add to RoadMedic’s real-time 911 vehicular emergency data capabilities, to analyze traffic trends and notify emergency responders and ultimately improve the post-crash experience. With accurate information on collisions, lane closures, congestion, and mobility trends, RTC will be able to dispatch response without delays, find shortest routes to site of incident, and eliminate time-consuming manual processes.
In 2018, the annual accident rate for commercial fleets was around 20%, with some industries, such as pharmaceuticals, even higher. Moreover, in 2019, 5,237 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes, a 2% increase from 2018, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
