Improving Road Safety with Crash Data
At CMT we face a predicament: we never want someone to get in an accident, but the data we’re able to glean from one is illuminating. Our products are the best in the industry because they’re trained on millions of miles of driving data collected each week. In order to best understand what accidents look and feel like when they do happen, though, means we have to have crash data to train our models on.
So, we manufacture them. We employ professional stunt drivers to simulate common crashes that occur at intersections and grocery store parking lots. We show up to demolition derbies and install our equipment on any windshield to observe crashes in extreme and mundane environments. We back into telephone poles and run over potholes. Why? Because every crash improves the quality of our data – whether it’s a fender bender, or a four-car pile up.
