AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nexteer Automotive has been recognized as a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree in the “Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility” product category for its Road Surface Detection & Early Intuitive Warning Software with Tactile Mobility.

This software solution advances lifesaving steering safety by enhancing a vehicle’s “awareness” of its environment and early warning communication to the driver through steering feel.

“Nexteer is honored to be recognized as a CES 2023 Innovation Award Honoree in the Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility category,” said Robin Milavec, President, Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) and Executive Board Director, Nexteer Automotive. “Our innovative Road Surface Detection & Early Intuitive Warning Software solution with Tactile Mobility shows how industry collaboration can lead to game-changing solutions that improve safety and performance for future mobility.”

About Road Surface Detection & Early Intuitive Warning Software

Nexteer and Tactile Mobility’s Road Surface Detection & Early Intuitive Warning Software leverages traditional steering feel into a new arena, enabling the vehicle itself to “feel” the road by converting road surface information into data that the vehicle collects, interprets and assigns to road condition scenarios – all in real time.

The software fuses two algorithms: A steering-based analytical algorithm and a data-driven, machine learned algorithm. The resulting “virtual sensor” data is transmitted to a cloud service that communicates upcoming danger to trailing vehicles. When the vehicle is notified of an upcoming slippery surface, software will mimic the steering feel of a slippery surface before reaching the actual slippery road. Giving a heads-up through steering feel influences the driver to intuitively reduce vehicle speed and drive safer.
