SAN DIEGO, April 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Netradyne, a leader in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology focusing on driver and fleet safety, today announced plans to launch Driveri™ RealTimeCoach and Driveri™ MobileCoach App. This new suite of coaching tools is designed to enable greater collaboration and communication with the driver during their workday. Driveri™ RealTimeCoach provides drivers with immediate audible notifications inside the vehicle, helping to proactively reduce risk while the vehicle is moving. Furthermore, the Driveri™ MobileCoach App provides a direct communication link to the driver via electronic communication when the driver is not driving.
In the past few years the value, efficacy and positive impact of direct-to-driver coaching has been clearly demonstrated. However, the traditional approach to coaching drivers solely relied on the identification of declining performance which then resulted in a manager scheduling a face-to-face conversation. Often, this approach only served to alienate the driver and ultimately deteriorate their relationship with the safety manager.
Driveri™, a vision-based driver recognition safety program, captures every minute of the driving experience delivering safety managers a complete view of their driver's day including positive driving behaviors, exoneration events and areas for individualized coaching. The expanded coaching tools—RealTimeCoach and MobileCoach App — allow for an immediate connected coaching relationship.
Driveri™ RealTimeCoach leverages audible reminders and notifications to guide the driver through their workday. Utilizing AI, the system coaches the driver on speed, following distance, harsh driving and seatbelt utilization. In addition, Drowsy & Distracted driving and Collision Warning alerts are designed to immediately reduce risky situations. The goal is to create an environment where the driver can self-adjust based on appropriate feedback.
Driveri™ MobileCoach App is available on selected Android and iOS devices, making it easier for the driver to stay updated on their GreenZone™ score when they are not driving. GreenZone™ provides fleets the ability to track driving behaviors against team safety programs and goals. In addition, Driveri™ Mobile Coach creates an immediate collaboration platform that allows drivers to review both positive driving and selected videos used for training.
"Managers should not underestimate the impact of coaching on their team as it frequently creates a fundamental shift in their work approach," said Adam Kahn, Vice President of Fleet, Netradyne. "Safety managers have struggled reaching their drivers effectively, either due to location or time limitations. With Driveri™ RealTimeCoach and Driveri™ MobileCoach, technology is serving as an advocate for drivers by ensuring safe driving throughout the day, versus requiring them to wait for a face-to-face or a monthly meeting."
Historically, legacy video recorders are unable to provide these proactive real time driving tools, due to the limitations of their on-board recognition and analysis. Commercial drivers are focused on great driving performance and Driveri™ continues to support the driver through collaborative coaching based on both positive driving and individual improvement.
Netradyne's Driveri™ is a vision-based driver retention and safety platform for commercial vehicles, which captures and analyzes every minute of every driving day. The platform uses a Quad-HD camera to provide a complete view 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.
