Car accidents are the number one unnatural death cause in the world, with more than 1.4 million persons being killed and another 30 million being injured in road accidents, throughout the world, every year. 23% of all the affected are pedestrians. Despite all the technological advances in the transportation field, there are still many challenges which were left with no appropriate technological remedy.
“Viziblezone” was founded with the vision of protecting the life of pedestrians against road accidents, employing innovative technology. “Viziblezone” introduces a patent protected, cutting edge road vehicle integrated ‘Pedestrian Detector’, for the purpose of discovering, tracking and protecting pedestrians, even when they are located out of a dangerously approaching vehicle driver’s field of view. The detector is designed to operate under all adverse weather and visibility (day and night) conditions.
Pedestrians who approach close proximity to a moving road vehicle, potentially prone to collide with it, will report its presence using their mobile device’s built-in facilities. A counterpart device in the road vehicle (collision detector) will become aware of the indication,will process it to determine the danger level and will convey the results to the road vehicle’s ECU for further action
Obstacles bypassing - Our technology averts and prevents collisions between road vehicles and pedestrians, who are positioned out of a vehicle drivers’ line of sight, e.g. behind direct view obstructing objects.
"Viziblezone" unique virtues:
Mission Critical Performance - Our technology reacts on and responds to any threatening event without any delay, in true real time terms.
Pedestrian danger profiling - Our technology features a danger probability prediction process which accounts for the pedestrian behavioral characteristics and the surrounding environment.
Cost-effective - Our technology is founded on software only solutions, which is many folds cheaper to introduce than comparable collision avoidance solutions.
Immediate availability - Our solution is readily obtainable and requires no additional modifications to be applied to the car infrastructure.
Demo of "Viziblezone" solution in action
At VizibleZone, we all believe that with the right technology, out-of-the-box thinking and a lot of courage, we can introduce a groundbreaking solution for saving people lives and reducing traffic accidents.
We gathered together to take on this challenge and disrupt the V2X market as we want to expedite the process of protecting people lives on the roads and deliver a life saving solution that can be widely adopted by being cheap, available on existing infrastructure and easy to be deployed on all types of vehicles (new & used models) and all types of pedestrians (inc. cyclists, scooters, etc..).
We are a group of domain experts in the fields of Communication, AI, Deep learning and Mobile and we are all also parents to kids who are hanging around roads and cars traffic all day and we want to make sure they are safier while out of our homes.
We all at "Viziblezone" believe that with the right technology, unorthodox thinking and a lot of courage, can introduce a groundbreaking solution for saving people lives and reducing road traffic accidents.
We gathered to take on this challenge and to take the lead in the V2P market, as we want to expedite the process of protecting people lives on roads and deliver a life saving solution that can be widely adopted by being cheap, available on existing infrastructure and easy to be deployed on all sorts of vehicles, new as well as old, and all types of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, scooters, etc..
Each of the founding members is an expert in one of the fields that comprises our solution and complements each other’s skills. We also are all parents to childrens, who cross roads on daily basis, and we very much want them back home safely and soundly.
