How Ukrainian developers make impact on road safety

05.10.2022 News

From October 1, drivers must turn on the dipped headlights of the car outside the city. This helps to additionally mark the vehicle in conditions of low visibility within the autumn-winter period. GlobalLogic reminds about the importance of compliance with traffic rules and tells about the developments of Ukrainian engineers that affect road safety.

In the first five months of 2022, 33.7% fewer road accidents were recorded than last year, reports the Patrol Police of Ukraine. This is due to a traffic intensity decrease during the war. At the same time, removed road signs and the emergence of artificial obstacles on roads, being especially dangerous in poor visibility, added to the causes of accidents. Under statistics, in general about 40% of accidents on the roads occur in the dark.

At the same time, according to the First Deputy Head of the Patrol Police Department Oleksiy Biloshitsky, the main cause of accidents on Ukrainian roads is the so-called human factor. For example, exceeding the safe and established speed limits accounts for 45% of all accidents with victims, and violation of maneuvering rules — 20%.

Innovations help minimize human errors, in particular self-driving cars will reduce the number of accidents by more than 85%, according to Zenseact. Widespread adoption of such technologies can save more than 50,000 people from dying in car accidents every year. GlobalLogic and Zenseact have been working on this ambitious goal for over 5 years.

“The modern car software contains more than 100 million lines of code, which is much more than the code of the entire software of the Boeing 787, the Large Hadron Collider or the social network Facebook” said Roman Razuvaev, Vice President of Engineering, GlobalLogic. “Programming a car is a big responsibility, and Ukrainian engineers have enough knowledge and practical skills to implement such multi-level projects. The technologies we are working on are represented in modern cars and can already be found on European and American roads.”

GlobalLogic engineers work on innovations that make driving more comfortable and traffic on the roads safer. In particular, as follows:

  • Highway Pilot — an autopilot that allows autonomous driving of a part of daily trips on high-speed highways;
  • the function of emergency braking, acceleration and maneuvering Collision Avoidance;
  • the function of controlled automated driving Driver support;
  • Connected Roadview function for assessing road conditions, which helps to plan routes and share information about road conditions with other cars in real time.

To tell about the contribution of Ukrainian engineers, GlobalLogic launched the “Make an impact beyond the code” campaign. Its goal is to tell about the real impact of software engineers. To celebrate the contribution of each developer, GlobalLogic invites you to share the story of your own impact — it is important that in Ukraine and around the world as many people as possible learn about the extremely important things that Ukrainian engineers create.
