Nauto: AI is helping to improve fleet safety and powering self-driving technology
California based transportation technology company, Nauto whose artificial intelligence powered data platform is making driving safer and fleets smarter. Nauto’s intelligent vehicle hardware saves lives by preventing collisions, improving driver behavior, and learning from the diverse data shared across its network.
Nauto is currently piloting its artificial intelligence-powered automotive data platform and aftermarket dual-camera device technology with numerous European-based commercial fleet, logistics, taxi, bus and auto leasing and insurance entities. Nauto, which equips any vehicle or fleet with sophisticated safety and networking features, such as the ability to detect distracted driving and provide constructive feedback to drivers, is also pursuing additional strategic relationships with the insurance and automotive industries to expand the adoption of the Nauto data platform in autonomous vehicle research and development, as it is currently doing with companies like BMW, General Motors, Toyota and Insurance company Allianz Group, among others.
The Nauto system includes a windshield mounted hardware design, deep learning and computer vision algorithms and smart cloud network informed by the accumulation of millions of kilometers from dozens of fleet customers on urban streets and highways. Because Nauto learns from other drivers, the road and conditions around vehicles in the Nauto network, fleets equipped with Nauto can automatically capture and upload video of significant events and insights in real time to help fleet managers improve overall driver performance and enhance the safety and efficiency of an entire fleet. Nauto’s scoring system, called VERA (Vision Enhanced Risk Assessment) includes a risk rating for the frequency and severity of distraction events. For example, a distraction event while stopped at a red light would not generate the same high risk score as a distraction event that occurred at 130 KM/h (65 mph) speed on a freeway would.
Nauto is an automotive data platform, powered by artificial intelligence and an after-market dual-camera device, which can equip any vehicle or fleet with sophisticated safety and networking features. The Nauto 2 system also includes a new windshield mounted hardware design, updated deep learning and computer vision algorithms and smart cloud network informed by the accumulation of more than a million miles on urban streets and highways.
