Hyundai Cradle partners with Netradyne for AV development
Hyundai Cradle, Hyundai Motor Company’s corporate venturing and open innovation business, today announced it is investing in Netradyne, a U.S. based intelligent technology company specializing in fleet safety management software.
The partnership supports further development of Level 3+ Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving features that may launch over the next few years.
Netradyne uses artificial intelligence vision-based dashcam devices to monitor safety performance of fleet vehicles. Netradyne’s system may also crowdsource road and driving behavior metadata.
With this agreement, Hyundai and Netradyne will collaborate to utilize the road and driving behavior data collected by Netradyne to support HD mapping and map updates for Hyundai’s development of future Hyundai's AV features.
Netradyne has already captured and analyzed over 1.6 million unique km of the 4.3 million total km of paved roads in the United States. This data includes numerous passes over the same roads to provide deeper insights into how driving and road different conditions may change throughout the year.
In total, Netradyne has analyzed more than 560 million km of road data. Each of these has been analyzed with AI and collected by professional drivers.
