About

As the global leader, Autoliv develops, manufactures and markets protective systems, such as airbags, seatbelts, and steering wheels and as a latest addition, Connected safety services. We are guided by our vision of Saving More Lives. Autoliv sells to all major car manufacturers globally. Now, we are reaching out to innovative companies with solutions to continue our path of furthering our best in class coaching bot, DARCY. We are looking for any new innovative solutions to solve the intelligence and deep learning of a bot to truly become an individual experience for any driver, irrespective of experience, culture or surrounding.

Theme description

Staying close to its customers, Autoliv has a superior global presence and operations in 27 countries. With our Connected Safety Services platform, we offer a way to deduce guidance in what safe driving means based on data and define this as a safety score.

With this safety score, we apply a certain logic to then change an individual's driving behaviour to a safer one. This service is then delivered to our customers end users.

As with any global process, a lot of consideration needs to be given to things like geography, regional culture and context of an individual in order to fully personalize a coaching experience for a driver. From our viewpoint, It is relatively easy to change behaviour of a driver over a short period of time, but to create stickiness and form habits over a long term is where most of the value resides. Hence, the field of behavioural Artificial Intelligence is critical for us.

Autoliv wants to take digital coaching experience for anyone driving a vehicle to a next and new level. For the next generation of our coaching experience, we are looking for new ideas, concepts and solutions that revolutionizes the new age of personalized coaching.

Opportunity overview

In creating the next revolution of coaching we are looking for anything that can truly personalize the experience and create even further engagement with the end user.

Changing behaviour over the long term is done through proactive engagement, through creating awareness and through giving right rewards to a user within unique context.

This is why we are looking beyond what we have today in DARCY, our bot, and looking for new advancements and additions to the behavioural engine that can supply DARCY with further insight, so that DARCY can reply even more sophisticated in the right way, at the right time, with the right visualization and with the right tone of voice and language. We have listed some examples of solutions that we have in mind, and would like to learn more about your offering for one or several of them. We are also open to novel approaches to the same opportunity space, so don’t hesitate to submit your solution.

Focus Areas

Examples of solutions we’re interested in

Getting to know the driver

The DARCY bot can currently understand driving behaviour of an individual and produce smart recommendations to improve that behaviour. We are looking for further machine learning solutions to create new individual insights that can be used to drive an increase in safe driving behaviour independent of vehicle driven - whether that be a car, an e-scooter, bike, or other means of transport.

Coaching for change over time

We have reached a best practice in being able to create awareness and engagement with what we have today in our safety coach app. To further engage the users for the long-term, we would like to learn how can we further enhance this by setting up new gamification tools and visualizations in our app. Let us know what you have to offer in this space.

Localization handling

The user base for our app is truly global, and we have to take that into account when it comes to personalization of content in terms of language. We would like to learn how can we apply localization for languages across the globe and still have the right intelligence triggering of the safety assistant bot in a smart and maintainable way. What would you have to offer for this opportunity?
