In 2018, the start-up SAFETYN SaS joined InnoGEX, the French BIC of CERN technologies. SAFETYN’s goal is to improve safety for general aviation, and reduce the number of accidents and fatalities for current aviation aircrafts. They plan to target future vehicles as well, such as passenger carrying drones and other novel forms of urban air mobility. The company aims to develop a novel device that acts as the pilot’s guardian angel, collecting data and assisting the pilots in improving their situational awareness during the flight. CERN technology enables these new devices to determine what data is relevant, and decide the kind of assistance that suits the situation. The company will use the open source ROOT/TMVA framework and machine learning libraries. This framework is a continuous development project in EP/SFT, mostly used for analysing physics data.
