SAN DIEGO, Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Netradyne, a leader in artificial intelligence and IoT systems, today announced that it's working with NVIDIA to enhance driver safety for commercial vehicles in the United States and India. Netradyne's Driveri™ IoT platform focuses on identifying, recognizing and rewarding positive driver performance. Using NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX1 and a patent pending four-camera video system, the company has been able to significantly accelerate vision-based data capture and vehicle analysis.
As an NVIDIA AI City partner, Netradyne leverages the Jetson TX1 and NVIDIA's Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) platform to capture and analyze the entire driving experience through deep learning. The on-device application of artificial intelligence and deep learning implemented at the edge of the network identifies positive driving activity and flags at-risk conditions, which is important information that can be leveraged by commercial fleets and insurance companies.

"The tremendous parallel performance and power efficiency of NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 enables the Driveri platform to provide deep insights into driving performance and allows the greatest level of protection to drivers and their fleets."
