Fujitsu launches a “digital twin” platform for the future of mobility

Technology News

The future of mobility is through connectivity . It is a fact more than a wish. Vehicles are getting smarter. Sensors, cameras, IoT devices, driving assistance, bluetooth … Technology at the service of safety and mobility. Vast amounts of data play a key role in improving traffic monitoring, mapping, managing insurance, and advancing the design of tomorrow’s vehicles.

Fujitsu has just presented at Tokyo Future Mobility Accelerator Digital Twin Analyzer, a vehicle camera image analysis platform, powered by AI image recognition technology that allows real-time analysis of what is happening in the vehicle environment.

Data with which the platform can create a precise digital twin ( Mobility Digital Twin ) that will help companies related to mobility to more effectively manage all data. Sales begin in Japan as of September 25, and availability will continue in the North American and European markets beginning in February 2021.

The new platform takes advantage of the technologies developed by Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd., such as the recognition and analysis of AI images or the technology of high precision 3D positioning that allows to convert the images taken by the car camera from all its surroundings into data . In this way, the platform allows to recognize the trajectory of possible obstacles in the real world – be it pedestrians, other vehicles, roads, buildings – to offer an exact prediction of any situation.

With the incorporation of the analysis logic, it not only recognizes vehicles, road markings and video traffic signs, but is even capable of differentiating between vehicle types (cars, buses and trucks) and road markings such as crosswalks or crosswalks. center lines of the carriageway. The platform even allows recordings of an accident regardless of the camera used by the vehicle.

Use cases
The digital twin achieved with the Fujitsu platform facilitates insurance procedures in the event of an accident . With the data recorded instantly, it is possible to automatically analyze the circumstances in which the claim has occurred. Information such as the path of the vehicle, changes in the color of traffic lights or even the presence or absence of pedestrian crossings is recorded in real time.

In addition, it facilitates traffic management since control rooms can know at the moment any incident that happens on the roads (whether they are accidents, retentions or falling obstacles on the road) and can improve their mobility management.
