New Michelin Service Can Help Prevent Crashes by Identifying
MICHELIN DDi to launch Near-Miss Service Suite at ITS World Congress 2022
- Services from the “Safer Roads” Suite help identify and assess near-miss hotspots to facilitate preventive road management
- Technology uses driving-behavior data and machine-learning capabilities, from more than 40 million U.S. drivers
- Reveal will happen Sept. 18 at the ITS World Congress in Los Angeles
GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 18, 2022 — Urban transportation could become a lot safer, thanks to Michelin.
MICHELIN® DDi, dedicated to more sustainable mobility through data solutions, is set to launch the Near-Miss Service Suite at ITS World Congress in Los Angeles.
Using millions of connected drivers and machine-learning proprietary algorithms, the Near-Miss Service Suite allows road-safety officials to detect and assess atypical driving behavior indicative of potential near-miss incidents. It gives road managers the opportunity to go beyond past crash data and identify risky zones to act before crashes occur.
“In order to achieve Vision Zero, a new concept in the road safety domain intent on reaching zero deaths on the roads, we must continue to shift the paradigm of safety planning from reactive to preventative,” said Erik Dietz, chief operating officer for MICHELIN DDi. “Near misses can be a game changer when it comes to improving road safety and creating a safer environment for anyone using public or municipal roads.”
How it works:
- Harnesses and transform driver behavior data with advanced contextual data
- Detects and analyzes near-miss hotspots and conditions
- Ranks locations by severity allowing prioritization and easier allocation of resources
- Analyzes before/after data to monitor and valorize progress efficiently and quickly
The ITS World Congress, the premier event in intelligent transportation systems, takes place Sept. 18-22 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. MICHELIN DDi will be joined by both RoadBotics by Michelin® and NexTraq®, both leaders in their respective fields.
MICHELIN DDi will also host a panel on Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022, from 3:30 p.m.- 5 p.m., focused on how driving behavior data and technology are transforming road management, the potential of new services such as the Near-Miss Suite and will include testimonials from representatives of SCAG (Southern California Association of Governments,) Texas DOT and former Caltrans (California Department of Transportation) director Laurie Berman.
