This Urban Traffic Scene May Seem Safe, but How Safe is it Really?

Streetscope’s real-time Collision Hazard Measure and Risk Analysis Tools provide life-saving and actionable insights to improve the safety and operations of your business. Interested? Keep reading.

01

We are an early-stage startup located in Pasadena, CA and work with public & corporate transportation agencies to jointly innovate how vehicle safety is measured and improved.

02

We quantitatively assess the traffic safety of drivers, streets, and driving operations for global insurance and traffic infrastructure.

03

We are looking for partners involved in transportation infrastructure and insurance.

Why Now

Safe Mobility Requires
a System View

Road safety is becoming increasingly complex. Streetscope’s Hazard Measure combined with our System Risk Tools provide you with a method to analyze and make improved, real-time decisions. Add these up over time, and we can also provide a measure of the safety of intersections, routes, and drivers.

It Begins with Direct Measurement

Today, whether you operate fleets, underwrite risk, develop property, or manage city streets and transit, analyzing traffic – related risk is either rear-looking (incidents) or a feature of safety performance based on cell phone telemetry – sampled guesswork. Near-misses between traffic objects occur frequently and are trackable. Streetscope’s contribution is a continuous measure, allowing for a richer understanding of risks affected by infrastructure, vehicle and driver performance, and environment, leading to better decisions influencing both near and long-term outcomes.

Streetscope is Transforming Safety and Risk Management in Road Transportation.

Why Streetscope

Saving Lives is
Good Business

Streetscope has created an objective measurement system for industry and municipalities enabling better safety related decisions.

Product

Measuring Hazard
and Assessing Risk

Streetscope measures hazard levels between all traffic objects, still and moving. It categorizes them in a variety of ways, by object type, behavior, risk level, etc., and allows users to compare risks, simulate scenarios, and understand the impacts of change to the infrastructure.

01

The Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure™

Streetscope’s Hazard Measure is a continuous measure of relative hazard, based on real-time quantification of collision hazards from existing on-board video sensors. The hazard measurement data anchors Streetscope’s System Risk Modeling and Trade tools.

System Risk Modeling

Streetscope’s risk modeling tools are derived from system engineering methodologies developed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. These tools allow us to go beyond conventional risk management – analyzing and characterizing risk – by enabling trades between mitigation options and available resources. This allows optimization and active risk balancing to become a key tool in understanding and actively mitigating transportation-related risks.

Methodology

Using Rocket Science
to Identify Road Hazard

By leveraging methods and technology developed to support complex NASA missions, Streetscope is able to identify and mitigate the everyday risks of road travel.

01

Gathering Pre-Collisions
Street Data

Collect every day traffic data from fixed cameras overlooking intersections and mobile cameras mounted on vehicles.

02

Analyzing Hazard
& Assessing Risk

Analyze pre-collision data to predict severity of future loss, using patent pending modeling tools inspired by technology used to analyze risk during NASA space missions.

03

Actionable Reports 
& Live Hazard Alerts

Create an array of actionable reports that enable specific industries to make real-time and strategic business decisions. These reports inform objective risk.

Industries

Markets We Serve

Streetscope makes decision support tools for the insurance, transportation and infrastructure sectors.

Making Better
Underwriting Decisions

For insurance, Streetscope's direct observation of traffic behavior offers a pathway to characterizing automated and human driven risks in a profitable way, something that has eluded the commercial fleet and consumer auto insurance lines for many years. Sampling is fine for some purposes. Direct measurement offers greater assurance in a complex world.

Real Time Understanding

For transportation infrastructure, Streetscope's street segment hazard scoring can be used to assess the impacts of proposed property changes in real time rather than the 3-5 years it takes today to gather crash data. Continuous measurement can enable transportation departments to respond immediately to emerging traffic conditions, saving lives and money.

New Technology Requires New Measurement

For car makers, vehicle safety has always meant crash safety. But today, vehicle safety is more about avoiding crashes than removing mechanical energy from vehicle occupants. It’s about responding to the behavior of the driver and also other vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians surrounding it. As a result, car manufacturers and other transportation providers continue to add complicated new automated safety technologies, which can take control of the vehicle from the human driver for periods of time. This change of control means change of liability, which means vehicle makers and automated system developers are looking for new ways to assess safety to ensure they meet and exceed today's safety requirements. Streetscope offers such an objective approach to assessing the safety of transportation systems and subsystems.

Informed Decisions Enable a Safer Future

Streetscope’s System Risk Model helps vehicle makers and automated system developers make a smarter decision about which ADAS technology to adopt, which AV stack provider offers the safest and most cost-effective solution for their new autonomous offering, and which sensor systems to incorporate. The Hazard Measure and Risk Model combine to provide a dashboard view of progress toward safety goals.

Safer Streets Today

City transportation departments are always striving for safer streets in their cities. Streetscope’s objective measure can quickly identify hazardous areas and help planners take corrective actions. What used to take years—waiting for people to have accidents—can now be done in real-time.

Safer Streets Tomorrow

Streetscope’s Risk Model considers not only today’s road hazards but can also quantify the impact of proposed road changes, helping ensure that new road plans or proposed changes to existing roadways meet safety expectations from day one.
