Nauto applauds US Congress for passing infrastructure legislation with key vehicle safety provisions, including study on collision warning technology
PALO ALTO, California, November 16, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Nauto, a leading provider of AI-based vehicle safety technologies for commercial fleets and the automotive industry, today welcomed the passage of bipartisan legislation that calls for a rule that will set performance standards minimum requirements that all vehicles sold in the United States be equipped with a collision system. -Warning technology within five years.
More precisely, the Protection of All Act (SAFE) This provision requires the Department of Transportation (DoT) to study how driver monitoring systems can prevent driver distraction and reduce the growing problem of distracted driving that has caused more collisions and fatalities on U.S. roads in 2020. than in any previous year. Passage of the bill will accelerate the study and implementation of advanced driver alert systems.
“, Stefan Heck, CEO, Nauto. âOver 90% of collisions involve human error and most are distracted driving. Using highly precise AI technology designed to understand these risks in real time, drivers can receive enough advanced warnings to avoid a collision. Data, based on billions of miles driven by AI, has shown that the goal of safer roads is not far from a fantasy. “
As the new bill becomes law, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an agency of the Department of Transportation (DOT), will be responsible for developing an effective safety policy. Finding the balance between being predictive and providing timely warnings that help avoid collisions, while providing a non-intrusive driving experience that maximizes safety and privacy is a complex issue. Nauto’s technology analyzes subtle indicators of distraction, drowsiness, cell phone use and driver attention in the vehicle, combined with vehicle speed, acceleration, surrounding vehicles and pedestrians to identify the risk of collision. The system then emits audible alerts only when necessary to help prevent collisions.
Today, Nauto technology is used by the world’s largest commercial fleets, which often operate in high-risk urban areas. Nauto’s AI has demonstrated the ability to provide preventative warnings with 95-99% accuracy and can dramatically reduce risky driving behaviors in just a matter of weeks. Nauto’s technology helps his fleet customers are getting closer to their vision of zero collisions.
Nauto is a leading provider of innovative Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) technologies that improve the safety of today’s commercial fleets and the different levels of autonomous vehicles of tomorrow. Nauto’s solutions combine predictive AI technology, data science and more than 1.3 billion miles traveled by AI to help predict and prevent collisions before they happen. This unique approach can improve driver performance and help reduce collision losses, delivering a quick return on investment while mitigating the most important risk factors. Recognized by nearly 800 fleets around the world, Nauto helps customers reduce collisions by up to 80% with predictive driver alerts.
