Terranet Further Advancing Its Life Saving Technology

Share

Following the launch at CES in Las Vegas 2020, Terranet has through Q1 up to now taken further important steps in the development and proof of concept cycle with the life saving 3D motion software technology – Voxelflow. "With higher accuracy, lower latency at higher resolution we are coming closer to a point what no human eye or computer vision system has ever been capable of achieving," says Terranet CEO Pär-Olof Johannesson.

Terranet’s vision is to contribute to the future realisation of the policy formulated by the third global ministerial conference on road safety in Stockholm in February 2020 that requires that fatalities and serious injuries are reduced in half by 2030. In our mission to carry out this vision, Voxelflow will also greatly enhance the mobility services and autonomous systems capabilities on collision warning and mitigation.

Based on recent findings and progress, way forward, Terranet’s strategy is to field test the technology by setting up demo vehicle platforms and test beds in close collaboration with OEM car manufacturers and Tier-1 component suppliers of active safety systems. This will be arrived at through a gradual industrialization and customer centric product development process. The present prototype including camera hardware will gradually be miniaturised to sensors which will be mounted in windshields and headlamps as part of future generations of advanced-driver-assisted-systems (ADAS) offerings for semi and fully autonomous cars.

Invented by Dirk Smits, now Terranet CTO, VoxelFlow was built upon the understanding that today’s camera-based computer vision and artificial intelligence navigation systems are simply too slow and subject to fundamental speed limits of perception using a frame based approach. Lidar has limited resolution and slow scanning rates, making it nearly impossible to distinguish between, for example, a fixed lamppost and a running child.

VoxelFlow’s capabilities are especially relevant considering harrowing statistics indicating that 80% of all crashes and 65% of all near-crashes involve driver inattention within the last 3 seconds of the crash. By providing life-saving decision making in milliseconds versus seconds, Terranet envisions transforming the pre-crash inattention that today accounts for roughly 1.35M road accident deaths into a forgotten collision-free swerve on the road.

Comparing the COVID-19 pandemic to car accidents is misguided and sets a false equivalency. However, yet approximately 1,35 perished in traffic last year according to WHO. That is 3700 road-deaths on average worldwide, everyday. It translates to seven fully occupied Airbus 380 crashing everyday without survivors. Road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their gross domestic product. Road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5-29 years. The horrible statistics on road-deaths is a matter of fact. While a virus is unpredictable, traffic casualties are predictable, and preventable. Terranet remains committed to pursue its vision, purpose and dedication to decrease fatal accidents through the exploration and discovery of new features related to Voxelflow - the life saving 3D motion software.

"We are seeing an advent of a paradigm shift where future holds a more conscientious community where progressive innovations on ADAS-technologies thrive and make the difference of life and death, in favor of design, horsepower and look and feel. It's time to embark upon this life-saving ride. We can fix what is what is broken with a novel technology and 3D motion perception software called Voxelflow," says Terranet CEO, Pär-Olof Johannesson.

European Steering Committee launch ‘A New Era in Diabetes Care’ report highlighting the need to improve the quality of care for people with type 2 diabetes and renal / cardiovascular complications4.6.2020 01:01:00 CESTPress release

A new expert-led report has today been launched to help outline key challenges and inequalities in the care of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and its associated renal and cardiovascular complications, and highlight some Calls to Action to try and address these gaps for the 53 million Europeans living with T2DM.1A New Era in Diabetes Care is a non-promotional disease awareness initiative that brings together a European Multidisciplinary Steering Committee of diabetes, nephrology and primary care experts, funded by Mundipharma International Limited. The report, authored by the Steering Committee, explores five main areas within the management of T2DM, chronic kidney disease (CKD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD): Healthcare professional and patient education on CKD and its signs Effective testing and interpretation of markers (clinical indicators) of CKD Greater understanding of the clinical management model amongst HCPs Use of shared decision-making to create an appropriate care plan f

Celltrion Healthcare showcases positive 1-year data and budget impact analysis for novel subcutaneous formulation of infliximab in patients with rheumatoid arthritis at the European E-Congress of Rheumatology 20204.6.2020 00:01:00 CESTPress release

At the European E-Congress of Rheumatology 2020 (The European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) 2020 E-Congress),Celltrion Healthcare today showcased three sets of data relating to a subcutaneous formulation of infliximab, Remsima® SC. The first study demonstrated no impact of body mass index (BMI) on clinical response to CT-P13 SC in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis (RA).1 The post-hoc study investigated the impact of BMI on clinical response to CT-P13 SC in part 2 of a phase I/III randomised controlled trial (RCT) in 165 patients throughout a 1-year treatment period.1 Patients were categorized into 3 groups; under/normal weight (<25kg/m2), overweight (≥25kg/m2, <30kg/m2), and obesity (≥30kg/m2) based on the WHO BMI classification. The three groups received at least one full dose of CT-P13 SC (after IV induction) in the initial treatment stage before week 30. The data show that the mean change from baseline of DAS28 (CRP) (-3.3, -3.1, -3.3 at week 54), duration of low disease

TeleSign Helps Skype Screen Robocalls with Score3.6.2020 18:00:00 CESTPress release

TeleSign today announced a new partnership with Microsoft’s Skype to screen robocalls using the flagship digital identity solution Score. By implementing Score, Skype is able to action against calls that are likely of a fraudulent origin. In this capacity Score is able to behave as an inbound spam filter while also preventing other types of communication fraud such as International Revenue Share Fraud (IRSF). Since implementing the TeleSign solution, Skype has been able to action upon over one million fraudulent calls per day. Ravish Patel, Sr. Director Digital Identity Solutions, said, “Robocalling has caused a major customer experience issue for end-users and causes severe reputational damage for communication apps and services who are unaware of the point and scale of such sophisticated attacks. By leveraging a global network consortium and Score's supervised machine learning algorithm, we are able to analyze and effectively flag fraudulent incoming calls, thereby saving money and p
