Subaru, IBM deal for crashproof cars

Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), the manufacturer of Subaru, and IBM are looking at creating a data analytics system that will completely eliminate car crashes.

FHI’s key aim is for “zero car accidents” by improving development efficiency to achieve self-driving characteristic of Subarus by advancing safety performance and reliability, verified with its EyeSight camera system.

The system is to analyse test images from advanced safety technologies, including the EyeSight driver assist system. This would then make evaluations using cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Working with IBM Japan, FHI says the system integrates and manages vast amounts of test image data. It started operation this month and will allow FHI engineers to search for – and analyse – test images.

FHI and IBM Japan will build the system using IBM Watson Internet of Things (IoT) for Automotive, a solution for the automotive industry, based on IBM cloud.

The project will verify applicability in the advanced driver assist system, through understanding characteristics of the latest technologies in the cloud and AI.
