About Hannah Systems //

Hannah Systems uses a
highly evolved self-learning AI

Combining a data sharing platform with advanced city analytics and leading-edge SimAAS (Simulation as a Service)

Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) spend billions of dollars in test miles to train the driving model to be confident that the car has enough knowledge to drive itself. The goal is a better understanding of human driving, city infrastructure, and pedestrian behavior.

This does still not address the steep learning curve to translate the unique, cultural driving and pedestrian habits throughout cities all over the world.

AVs need easy entry and a comprehensive view of global cities for the advancement and acceptability which includes different cultural styles of driving unique to a country or city nor an understanding of localized events such as extra pedestrian around train stations or stadiums.

About:

The Hannah team understands how to build systems. We are specialists in combining our knowledge of the intelligent traffic industry with our deep understanding of APIs, server technology, blockchain and emerging transportation technologies. We have pulled together experts experienced in integrating live data into city infrastructure and a deep knowledge of machine-based learning, soft-computing, traffic and 3D modeling and game engines. Our team recognizes that the future of transportation lies within autonomous and connected vehicles and it is our pursuit to deliver the most innovative and intelligent products to this industry.

Hannah Data Exchange Platform

This is the centerpiece of our portfolio, allowing for the first time encrypted data to be shared anonymously by all road users. AVs, connected vehicles, fleets and app-based fleets can share data using our mapping logistics software and behavioral AI bringing the most accurate and comprehensive view of the cities to the vehicles. In addition, new applications, universities and government departments can utilize and feed into the platform, enriching the overall user experience by improving the granularity of the data.

The Data Exchange Platform provides AVs, connected vehicles and app-based fleets access to data that is otherwise unavailable. Hannah’s portfolio of products lean on each other, sharing information and data across the platform, so that connected vehicles and fleets can benefit from travel time information, signal phasing, pedestrian information, topography and visibility of all road users.

Hannah Maps

Our unique map building IP delivers an unprecedented 12cm/4.7”, lane-level accuracy and includes topography and weather. Hannah Maps creates of a living, digital twin of the cities that is used to build modeling that can reduce travel time and mileage for delivery vehicles, enable connected vehicles to receive speed harmonization and makes all users more aware of pedestrian traffic.

Hannah Insight

We believe that our unique software, Hannah Insight can significantly reduce test miles necessary for AVs to achieve level 4 and 5 automation and represents the intelligence AVs need to navigate the world safely and efficiently.

In addition, Hannah Insight detects cultural variations of human driving and pedestrian behavior (i.e. driving habits of Tokyo are vastly different than Rome) using a sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) that utilizes game theory risk analysis. Our system recognizes increased risk of jaywalking, speeding, less predictable traffic, aggressive/ higher risk driving as well as advanced notification of localized time-based events such as stadiums, train stations, and schools. It can also discern neighborhood level fluctuations in driving and pedestrian behavior and report incidents such as construction, accidents or special events.

Hannah Blockchain

Not just a buzzword, in our case it’s a preferred means of creating a distributed, scalable, decentralized architecture for authentication and uninterrupted communication with AVs.
Data is delivered to vehicles through encrypted Peer-to-Peer stream channels for low latency communication with road infrastructure and is safer and less susceptible to hacking and interference by leveraging the blockchain for its encryption and security.

Creating the details //

“Hannah Systems is a pivotal intermediary feeding information and intelligence to those creating the foundation of tomorrow’s cities”

Our platform delivers mapping and logistics as well as predictive elements using fuzzy-logic based AI including lane positioning, travel time, left/right turns, light phasing, waiting time and volume, resulting in efficient and more accurate travel through the city.

Today’s maps are optimized for assisting humans, resulting in an oversimplified and abstract representation of the world. AV’s have a new set of requirements and need a complete, centimeter-accurate depiction of the real world, containing all things relevant to road navigation such as topography, lanes, curvature and road boundaries.

Hannah Systems understands the totality of city, not just the vehicle and the sensors. We see the city in its entirety and can connect all road users.

What are the 5 levels of Automation

(As explained by Isabel Harner – read her full article here )

Level Zero — No Automation

At Level 0 Autonomy, the driver performs all operating tasks like steering, braking, accelerating or slowing down, and so forth.

Level One — Driver Assistance

At this level, the vehicle can assist with some functions, but the driver still handles all accelerating, braking, and monitoring of the surrounding environment. Think of a car that brakes a little extra for you when you get too close to another car on the highway.

Level Two — Partial Automation

Most automakers are currently developing vehicles at this level, where the vehicle can assist with steering or acceleration functions and allow the driver to disengage from some of their tasks. The driver must always be ready to take control of the vehicle and it still responsible for most safety-critical functions and all monitoring of the environment.

Level Three — Conditional Automation

The biggest leap from Level 2 to Levels 3 and above is that starting at Level 3, the vehicle itself controls all monitoring of the environment (using sensors like LiDAR). The driver’s attention is still critical at this level, but can disengage from “safety critical” functions like braking and leave it to the technology when conditions are safe. Many current Level 3 vehicles require no human attention to the road at speeds under 37 miles per hour.

Audi and others have announced Level 3 autonomous cars to launch in 2018. An autonomous vehicle expert at Ford noted that they plan to take the company straight to Level 4, saying “We’re not going to ask the driver to instantaneously intervene — that’s not a fair proposition.”

Level Four — High Automation

At Levels 4 and 5, the vehicle is capable of steering, braking, accelerating, monitoring the vehicle and roadway as well as responding to events, determining when to change lanes, turn, and use signals.

At Level 4, the autonomous driving system would first notify the driver when conditions are safe, and only then does the driver switch the vehicle into this mode. It cannot determine between more dynamic driving situations like traffic jams or a merge onto the highway.

Level Five — Complete Automation

Last and least (in terms of human involvement), is Level 5 autonomy. This level of autonomous driving requires absolutely no human attention. There is no need for pedals, brakes, or a steering wheel, as the autonomous vehicle system controls all critical tasks, monitoring of the environment and identification of unique driving conditions like traffic jams.

What is Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) ?

  • Red Light Violation Warning
  • Speed Compliance
  • Curve speed compliance
  • Speed Compliance in Work Zone
  • Oversize Vehicle Compliance (height &
  • prohibited warning)
  • Emergency Communications and Evacuation
  • Information

What is Mobility?

  • Pedestrian in Signalized Crosswalk Warning
  • Mobile Accessible Pedestrian Signal System

Why the name Hannah?

We wanted to give a human feel to everything we do and Hannah was chosen to deliver that message.
