- A safety solution that can
proactively respond to risk factors by analyzing road conditions with AI-based
technology... To be utilized for road traffic safety by developing with Hankook
- Applied for a patent for real-time road
condition detection technology based on driving sound analysis
Planet (President Lee Han-sang, www.skplanet.com) located in Pangyo, the
innovation hub in Asia, will be working with Hankook Tire & Technology to
conduct a joint development project of Road Hazard Detection Solution using
deep learning technology.
Hazard Detection Solution is a road safety solution that enables AI to quickly
check and respond to hazards on the road by analyzing driving noise generated
on the roadside and determining the road surface in real-time.
order for the solution to operate correctly, AI must be taught by acquiring
various data such as driving noise generated by road conditions (normal, wet,
snow, slush, freezing, black ice). For this, Hankook Tire provides SK Planet
with environment-specific driving noise data acquired by using its own tire
performance test sites in Geumsan, Chungnam and Ivalo, Finland.
Planet analyzes the data provided to determine the road surface condition, and
then passes the information to the management to prepare for possible accidents
in advance. In the past, road management could only be done directly by
attaching separate sensors to road patrol vehicles. By this method, it was hard
to perform 24-hour monitoring and provide quick responses. But, this limitation
can be overcome by using this solution.
years, SK Planet has been analyzing various types of data and building
cloud-based deep learning and real-time large-scale data analysis models. In
particular, it has also applied for a patent related to the technology that
detects the road condition in real-time with sound processing technology and
deep learning technology.
two companies joined hands for developing this solution to contribute to a more
convenient and safer life by combining their core competencies and
technologies. In the future, it will be used for road traffic safety in winter
through the actual application process such as pilot application to domestic
road control. In the future, the two companies plan to actively cooperate in
building the best solution for safety.
on SK Planet's IoT and AI technology and experience in implementation, we have
introduced solutions that can help road safety," said Jeong Gan-che, the Head
of SK Planet's ICT Synergy Business Division. He emphasized, "We will do our
best to prevent road accidents during winter for local governments to help
people live a convenient and safe life."
As of 2019, Pangyo, the tech hub in
Asia, has 1,259 resident companies with more than 93% in high-tech industries
made up of IT, CT, BT, and NT, with last year's total revenue amounting to
107.2 trillion won.
