HYUNDAI MNSOFT Partners with Netradyne to Lead the Next Generation of Autonomous Vehicle Technology Globally

Utilizing Dynamic Crowd-Sourced Deep Vision Technology, Netradyne and HYUNDAI MNSOFT Will Offer the Industry's Most Dynamic HD Mapping Platform

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Netradyne, a leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology focusing on driver and fleet safety, today announced a global partnership with HYUNDAI MNSOFT, a Hyundai Motor Group subsidiary specializing in location-based services (LBS), cloud-based connected navigation software and future high definition (HD) maps for autonomous vehicles. Each bringing a unique skillset and expertise, this partnership seeks to develop HD maps to drive forward future vehicle technologies.

Grounded in the vision of ensuring our global roadways improve from a safety standpoint, these two organizations will create a strong collaborative environment for their individual artificial intelligence and research and development teams. HYUNDAI MNSOFT will leverage Netradyne's dynamic crowd-sourced deep vision technologies for the development of HD Maps in its next generation vehicles.

"Netradyne's vision-based road feature analytics will allow us to maintain the most technologically advanced HD maps," said Byoungkeun Woo, VP of HYUNDAI MNSOFT. "With this agreement, we will make additional efforts to develop our HD maps for the safety of all autonomous vehicles."

Netradyne has been in a competitive proof of concept (POC) trail with HYUNDAI MNSOFT for close to a year, leveraging its Driveri™ camera to map parts of the United States in high definition. While several competitors have participated in partnerships surrounding Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)-based mapping collaborations, Netradyne's differentiated approach ultimately stood out to Hyundai as it relies on crowd-sourced deep vision analytics—a more affordable approach to HD Map generation which ultimately offers feasible dynamic updates.

"After going head-to-head with competitors within the space for nearly a year, Netradyne is looking forward to collaborating with an organization as forward-thinking as HYUNDAI MNSOFT," said Sandeep Pandya, President of Netradyne. "We are proud to have been recognized as a technology leader in the dynamic vision-based HD map data generation, and as a provider of Driveri, the most advanced aftermarket driver safety monitor and real-time alerting solution."

Driveri is a vision-based driver recognition safety program that captures every minute of the driving experience, delivering safety managers a complete view of their driver's day, now including advanced HD Map data capabilities.

"With Driveri, real-time, edge computing provides immediate updates," explained David Julian, CTO of Netradyne. "Driveri mapping leverages a simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) approach to crowd-source updates for dynamic events such as accidents, or road construction, in addition to static elements such as lane markings, signs, signals and more."

Close collaboration to develop HD maps globally between the AI research and development (R&D) and product teams at both HYUNDAI MNSOFT and Netradyne is expected to enable safer next-generation vehicles.

"The announcement made between HYUNDAI MNSOFT and Netradyne speaks to the need for advanced AI and AV companies to work together to support advancing driver and fleet safety, location and tracking data and bring intelligent data to those adopting autonomous vehicle technology," said industry analyst, Stephanie Atkinson, CEO of CompassIntel.com and Chair of IoT6 Exchange Summit.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
With the new Kubernetes offering, ClearDATA solves one of the largest challenges in healthcare IT around time-to-deployment. Using ClearDATA's Automated Safeguards for Kubernetes, healthcare organizations have access to the container orchestration to dynamically deploy new containers on demand, monitor the health of each container for threats and seamlessly roll back faulty application updates to a previous version, avoid system-wide downtime and ensure secure continuous access to patient data.
With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
