NodboxSafeRoad is a technological gateway between road, navigation cartography, and embedded worlds, bringing about a technological breakthrough in active embedded safety. NodboxSafeRoad provides risk predictions to drivers during the preliminary phase of non-danger, bringing about a dramatic improvement of road prevention and prediction systems. NodboxSafeRoad analyses the potential risks regarding specific driver behaviour with vehicle speed, rolling conditions, road features, existing dangers and weather conditions. With NodboxSafeRoad, road management centres are able to analyse and precisely localise road dangers and dangerous conditions to turn the dangers into risks. NodboxSafeRoad provides electronic modelling of highly non-linear and complex problematic, real time <1ms calculations and predictions. The system takes into account the infinite number of configurations (road, vehicle, condition, driving) and the existing data with a progressive and pragmatic implementation. The system provides inter-compatibility, convergence, integration of each future technology, upgradeability and adaptation of warnings by using available data and its confidence level; The system integrates empirical knowledge and the combination of quantified elements with a qualitative expertise; NodboxSafeRoad goes beyond the limits of the traditional Data Mining approaches, which hardly include the singular structural incidents.

NodboxSafeRoad is an innovative solution providing road surface adherence and very precise 3D road geometry. The system provides real time identification and qualification of loss or disrepair of the positioning signal provided by the satellite navigation systems. NodboxSafeRoad screens out and discriminates signal origins that are produced by embedded sensors in vehicles.
