Software to detect dangerous road conditions and calibrate ADAS/autonomous driving systems

Conceived as a virtual sensor for detecting dangerous wet roads and aquaplaning, DAI has evolved into a platform with highly precise detection capabilities for tire loss of contact on various surfaces, including wet, and soon on ice, snow, gravel, potholes, and more.

With ASIL-B level readiness and easy integration in vehicle’s standard ECU, DAI facilitates ADAS calibration in challenging driving conditions, offering innovative safety functionalities for traditional, assisted, and autonomous vehicles.
Available as an OTA upgrade, DAI enables OEMs to implement new software-based features.
Additionally, by monitoring tire pressure and addressing wheel misalignments, DAI contributes to optimizing fuel/energy and CO2 consumption.
A single software product allows for both essential safety functions and enhancements to a vehicle’s efficiency, for any vehicles.

Main Features and Benefits

Safety

DAI monitors the tire’s contact patch for improved safety in low-grip scenarios.

Peculiarity

DAI is based on proprietary algorithms. It works without tire related calibration and adapts in real time to any vehicle load.

Integrability

ASIL-B ready software easy to install into the vehicle’s standard ECU.

Building one of the most advanced virtual platforms

By continuously monitoring the contact patch (the portion of a vehicle’s tire that is in actual contact with the road surface), DAI is poised to become the ultimate solution to the challenges of driving assistance systems and driverless cars, being a crucial tool in detecting all low grip conditions, reducing CO2 emissions and fuel/energy consumption.

DAI virtual sensor for Wet Road detection

Digital Aquaplaning Information (DAI) identifies dangerous wet road conditions and the risk of aquaplaning.

The software-based virtual sensor allows drivers to make informed decisions and improve road safety.

DAI provides warning levels to the vehicle which can be used by OEMs to create new safety features and functionalities, such as adjusting the speed of Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) automatically.

Software to be downloaded as an OTA update

Easyrain’s cutting-edge DAI software will be accessible for download directly from the OEMs’ online store, ensuring a seamless and efficient integration process for a wide range of vehicles – both traditional and autonomous.
