AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE FEATURE NEWS

Netradyne Introduces DriverStar to Recognize and Reward Safe Driving

By Ken Briodagh October 20, 2017

In a recent release, Netradyne, an artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT systems developer, has announced plans to launch DriverStar, a new feature of NetraDyne's Driveri platform that alerts fleet safety managers of good driving by commercial drivers. This feature is designed to give safety managers the power to recognize and reward extraordinary driving behaviors exhibited by their truck drivers.

DriverStar is an extended feature to GreenZone, which already tracks driving behavior throughout the day in the Driveri system, constantly analyzing and assessing performance. Through AI-enhanced capabilities, the new feature reportedly provides a deeper view into positive driving behavior, analyzing data and alerting safety managers when a driver reacted safely to a challenging situation.

“The commitment we made when we designed Driveri was to recognize good driving and arm fleets with the ability to award their drivers for excellence,” said Adam Kahn, VP, Fleet Business, Netradyne. “Legacy safety technologies have largely underserved professional drivers and many good decisions they make on the road go unnoticed by safety managers because they don't have the data available to reward good driving. Our new DriverStar feature gives safety managers the tools needed to reach out to drivers with positive recognition and creates more balance in fleet driver monitoring, which drives productivity.”

NetraDyne's flagship product Driveri is designed as a vision-based safety platform for commercial vehicles, which captures and analyzes every minute of every driving day. The platform uses a Quad-HD camera to provide multiple views of the road, a TeraFLOP processor capable of one trillion calculations per second, and artificial intelligence that analyzes driver behavior and relays data to fleet managers immediately. The catalog of DriverStar events continues to expand, including positive reactive and proactive maneuvers.
