  • ŠKODA uses swarm data to warn fellow drivers of dangerous road conditions




    • ŠKODA cars use anonymised vehicle data to warn fellow drivers of poor road conditions
    • ‘Local Hazard Information Service’ can even detect minor road damage such as potholes
    • Service is based on swarm data intelligence: the more vehicles supply data, the more precise the analyses and predictions become
    • More than three million vehicles set to provide data by the end of 2022
    • Available for the Enyaq iV, Fabia, Kamiq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Scala and Superb in the UK as part of ŠKODA Connect services


    The ŠKODA ‘Local Hazard Information Service’ provides drivers with detailed information about current road conditions. By collecting and evaluating anonymous vehicle data, the system is able to warn of approaching hazards such as slippery or damaged road surfaces via the infotainment system, actively increasing safety in the process.


    Accelerometers and ABS sensors – that measure the acceleration and braking of the car - allow the required data to be captured continuously during each journey. Meanwhile, innovative virtual sensors estimate the friction between the tyres and the road surface based on wheel slip. The combined data is anonymised and transmitted to the cloud, where aggregated information from all connected vehicles is paired with metadata, such as weather information or previous measurements. Using the data collected, the road network can be displayed as a precise three-dimensional model, which is used to send alerts to vehicles when they find themselves approaching or within an area with bad road surfaces.

    If a connected vehicle encounters icy conditions, for example, the driver will be alerted via the vehicle’s infotainment system based on information acquired by the car itself. This information is then anonymously transmitted via the Car-to-Cloud application, alerting nearby drivers – the more connected cars that encounter the affected road, the more ‘swarm’ data is produced and the more accurate the maps, information and driver alerts will become.

    This swarm intelligence enables precise analysis, helping to build the self-learning system. Over the course of 2021, more than 1.7 million Volkswagen Group vehicles in Europe will supply data, a figure set to rise to more than three million by the end of 2022. The ‘Local
    Hazard Information Service’ is available for the Enyaq iV, Fabia, Kamiq, Kodiaq, Octavia, Scala and Superb in the UK and is part of ŠKODA Connect services. The service can be used in 30 countries, provided that the vehicle features the Amundsen or Columbus infotainment
    system.

    Sensor data opens up numerous usage opportunities


    The underlying technology can be used for numerous other applications too: for example, road authorities can use the data to obtain real-time information about different road sections, allowing them to gain insight into the condition of the road network. They can find out where the potholes are, which areas are slippery when wet, or tend to freeze quickly. The data can also provide information as to which roads have already been gritted or cleared.

    Sebastian Lasek, Head of Product Line Connectivity at ŠKODA, stated: “The system uses the car’s sensors to detect challenging road conditions in advance. To this end, the ‘Local Hazard Information Service’ increases active safety for drivers and passengers. We are continuously developing our connectivity services to offer our customers extra safety features and even more convenience.”

    You don't get an overfilled warning, if it is way too much over max the cap will release the excess. The VAG protocol is to set the coolant at max when

    Re: Intermittent "low coolant" warning

    Surely when cold it should be on the Min mark, rising to the Max mark when the engine is hot. Is the issue that the system is overfilled?

    Middle lane hogging is an absolute horror of our roads. It makes motorway driving difficult for the rest of us, when it doesn't need to be. Last week
