When is an AV safe enough to deploy?

There are no standards to assess the safe movement of vehicles (seriously). To be assured that any AV moves safely in traffic, verification and validation processes need objective performance metrics. The Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure produces life-saving, actionable insights that improve the safety of our streets and speed up the deployment of autonomous mobility.

Interested? Keep reading.


We work with developers, deployers, insurers, and regulators of autonomous mobility that wish to measure the safe movement of their own or third-party vehicles.


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


For those who need to make safety-related deployment decisions, the Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure is objective, validated across simulated and real-world conditions (even dashcam video works).


The Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure™ (SHM™)

The state-of-the-art Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure™ (SHM™) is a continuous quantification of relative hazard that calculates the degree of near-miss for each pair of traffic object interactions occurring between all the traffic objects in any traffic scenario.

The Streetscope Collision Hazard Measure™ is:

Perhaps most importantly, SHM™ can be integrated across all modes of AV safety verification and validation toolchains: on road, in simulation, on test tracks, and for safety assurance in operation.

Gather Pre-Collision Street Data

Streetscope collects data on the position of all objects, using various data ingestion methods to generate a continuous quantification of relative hazard. The data can be collected directly, using an inexpensive GPS-enabled dashcam, or for those that have archived road, track, and simulated drive data, accessed via API.


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.


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.


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.
