Sfara is one of several key players selected and funded by the German state of Hesse to explore developing a smartphone-based, multimodal traffic warning system for real-time accident avoidance. Sfara is working jointly with its research partner Deutsche Telekom and other logistics leaders.
Sfara brings to the project its expansive experience in industry-leading crash detection technologies and smartphone-based Telematics for multimodal applications. The project is the logical progression from a passive state to an active safety approach for smartphones, and is based upon advanced patents awarded in this space, which can be used to avoid accidents between road users of all kinds.
“Sfara is excited to be selected for this advanced technology project in the CV2X space and to work with a development team that combines expertise in mobile machine learning and network architecture, ultra-low speed crash detection and data science,” said Sascha Simon, Chief Science Officer, President and Founder of Sfara.
