One of the most challenging problems in the vehicle industry is to identify upcoming road conditions. Currently, many active safety systems in production cars suffer from unknown road friction that varies constantly based on road and weather conditions. While this deficiency is tolerated nowadays because of the human driver, it is totally unacceptable for the self-driving car.
RoadCloud places itself squarely in the middle of this problem by helping develop and install propriety hardware in carefully selected vehicles of the autonomous kind. Roadcloud continuously collects multiple real-time data streams from their partner vehicle fleets. This data is used to offer RoadCloud's customers (such as the Swedish Transport Administration, Trafikverket) real-time road and traffic condition data via their cloud platform.

Instead of ploughing through hundreds of thousands of pages of technical or product requirement documents about how to manufacture a nuclear power plant or a marine vessel, Selko allows individuals to find the information relevant to their needs. It allows for all the benefits of machine learning, with no need for AI infrastructure setup or technical knowledge. Learn more at selko.io.

With Dashbird’s product, companies can get real-time visibility, failure-detection and alerting and troubleshooting for their serverless framework. Read more at dashbird.io.
