As we sail through the vast technological oceans of 2023, decision-makers across the globe are contemplating how the formidable blend of generative AI and big data is instigating a revolution in the automotive sector. Today, we’re retracing the incredible progress made in the domains of big data, deep learning,
This glossary offers over 100 definitions for common terms in the context of real-time mapping. As a guiding principle, we opted to include generally accepted definitions as well as to explain (whenever appropriate) how each entry applies to the key concepts in real-time mapping.

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Michael Waitze on the Asia [https://asiainsurtechpodcast.com/] Insurtech Podcast [https://asiainsurtechpodcast.com/]about Nexar and its role in revolutionizing road safety through ground-breaking technology. The podcast episode unpacks Nexar’s goals as a leading AI vision company, and our efforts to
Nexar generates the world’s largest independent vision dataset providing AV creators with the anomalous data they need for training along with mapping and change detection
My co-founder Bruno and I started Nexar on a mission to eliminate road collisions worldwide by using vision-based technology to alert drivers to dangers ahead in real time. When people pair a Nexar-powered smart dash cam with the Nexar app, they join our connected network
The Nexar Mobility Network has the potential to become a key component of the world’s present and future, making transport and mobility both safer and more efficient. This network will become an essential part of our lives and will provide the same level of welfare we see in other
Introducing NEXETNexar recently released the largest and most diverse automotive road dataset for researchers in the world. We’d like to provide some context on the evolution of autonomous driving perception and why we’re giving everyone access to our data. For 30 years, neural networks have been the black
Nexar announces partnership with CoverWhale to enhance its innovative Driver Safety Program, further improving safety and lower insurance premiums. The trucking industry encounters an avalanche of safety risks. This is why we are so excited to announce our recent partnership with Cover Whale. Cover Whale Insurance Solutions Inc. is a
Nexar’s Algorithm Data Analyst, Raphael Mamane, explains how the company is paving the way for the future of digital maps - and revolutionizing the world as we know it In the era of automation and efficiency we are approaching, traditional maps are no longer sufficient. As maps move from
Nexar’s software architect, Robert Harrison, explains what stands behind Nexar’s Constant Coverage Technology. Providing consistent, quality coverage of roads and highways across the US means providing the necessary information that helps us understand the world around us. Collecting data from our car camera network - through an annonymization
A shared understanding of the road What if cars could “communicate” to create a common understanding of the road they are in? Actually, they already do. You’re driving: you see a brake light ahead. You brake instinctively, trying to avoid a rear-end collision. This is basic communication, and it’
Leveraging data to protect our users’ privacy Matan Friedmann is a Senior Research Scientist at Nexar where he works on difficult research problems.
At Nexar, we invest a lot of time in learning about the world’s roads, driver behavior and what happens on the road on a daily basis. That’s because we are building a safe driving network and understanding our roads is an important step in creating a reality with no car collisions.
Also introducing our latest data challenge for autonomous developers [https://www.getnexar.com/challenge-2/]` It could be argued there is only one proven Big Data application — web search. Nothing so far has met the sheer size and complexity of indexing the web at the precision, recall, and freshness Google delivers.
Software is eating the roads. This might seem like a grand statement, but in the 7 years since I co-founded Nexar with Bruno Fernandez-Ruiz, it has also become glaringly apparent. In practice, this means that vehicles are becoming increasingly software-centric - prioritizing the consumer demand and experience. The implications are
I’m very excited to share that Nexar is acquiring Veniam, a Portugal-based company who is a leading provider of intelligent networking for the internet of moving things. This is a big deal for us, being our first acquisition, and I wanted to share the importance of this step for
Six years ago, my partner, Bruno Fernandez-Ruiz, and I, started the journey of Nexar. Today Nexar is announcing a round that brings its total funding to $153 million. This is an opportunity to explain what we’ve been working on since our last round last year and where we plan
Real-time imagery can help understand how behaviour on the streets impacts the spread of COVID-19 We’ve all heard the debates about wearing face masks during the Coronavirus pandemic. We’d like to ask a different question: whether people behave as they self-report when it comes to face mask wearing
A comparison between the driver’s accurate location (green dots) and the raw GPS data (red) Today we are very excited to announce that Nexar has developed a new, AI-powered visual localization method that greatly improves GPS location accuracy in challenging urban environments. We’re presenting this new method today
First post in a five-part series about how transportation will evolve as an ecosystem It will take 40 years for autonomous vehicles to replace human drivers across the world. Despite the hype and Tesla’s best efforts, it will not take 20 or 10 years, and definitely not 5. A
Here’s what we learned after 8 million miles. After launching Nexar on the App Store 6 months ago, we saw larger adoption than expected. Drivers everywhere are eager to have for more pertinent information that makes their driving safer, and more protection in case of a crash. In the
