Worried about getting in an accident with an autonomous vehicle? Maybe this is the answer.
Some two years after joining the University of California Berkeley’s SkyDeck start-up program, Bastien Beauchamp and his company named !Important – yes, that’s not a typo – have developed technology that he calls “the digital version of a seat belt.”
The start-up’s software uses smartphone location data and machine learning to calculate distances between pedestrians, drivers and self-driving cars and to alert all of them prior to a collision. Click here for more information on the effort.
