Swarm Data & Intelligence: Collaborating for Greater Safety

Nira Dynamics & Audi are using high-precision swarm data to improve its car-to-X service known as local hazard Information, this was the first customer application in which vehicle data is applied to this type of cutting-edge data analysis. The solution includes a car-to-cloud application based on an innovative technology that detects the tiniest changes in road surface adhesion, uploads data to the cloud for processing, and warns upcoming drivers of road ice or other slippery conditions in near real-time. The two companies adapted this solution as a basis to develop enhanced hazard alerts, together with the Car.Software organization and HERE Technologies. Learn about a safer and more intelligent mobility solution that leverages cutting-edge data analysis and a driver assistance system that is pre-learning.


  • How driver assistance systems can ‘pre-learn’ and adjust to the condition of the road with even greater precision, and route guidance in the navigation system can take road conditions into account.
  • Understand the importance of data and why connectivity is the foundational core of future mobility solutions.
  • How collaboration is key for cross-brand software development but also holds huge opportunity for swarm data & intelligence.
  • What prerequisites are required to cope with the complexity of AI learning.
  • Understand the role of a hyperconnected intelligent and distributed platform to unleash the full potential of seamless mobility.
