Flex and Caruma Partner to Deliver AI-Powered, Vision-Based Systems

AGM Automotive, recently acquired by Sketch-to-Scale solutions provider Flex, has entered into a joint development and licensing agreement with Caruma Technologies, Inc.

The two companies will collaborate on the integration of AGM’s Intelligent Interior System with Caruma’s system empowering the automotive data platform, which combines artificial intelligence, computer vision, and big data analytics —the underlying technologies found in self-driving cars—to alert drivers of unsafe driving behaviors, roadway hazards and vehicle security risks. These systems are designed to connect to the cloud to provide Advanced Driver Assisted Systems (ADAS) and Driver Management Systems (DMS).

Flex intends to offer the Intelligent Interior System to automakers for integration into new vehicles and for aggregating anonymized data on driving patterns, road infrastructure changes, and traffic congestion to ramp up their autonomous vehicle strategies.

The Caruma platform connects cameras and sensor hardware to a continuous learning cloud and an artificial intelligence powered vehicle network, which ‘learns’ behavioral patterns of drivers and passengers, situational factors external to the vehicle and road infrastructural changes.

Flex, AGM and Caruma anticipate their advanced hardware technology and AI, computer vision based software platform to be available to automakers by Q4 2017.
