Netradyne, a leader in
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and IoT systems, has announced the launch of an
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) solution trained for Indian road
conditions as part of its Driveri platform. Driveri is a four-camera,
vision-based system mounted on the vehicle windscreen that helps fleet managers
recognize positive driver performance and enhance driver safety for commercial
vehicles. Netradyne is the first company to launch a vision based ADAS solution
specifically trained for Indian road conditions.
Studies have shown that inattention within
three seconds of an event is a major cause of accidents. In fact, this
inattention has been shown to lead to over 2,000 fatalities in a report shared
by the Government of India in 2015. Driveri (ADAS) provides real-time audio
alerts to the driver in a vehicle when a collision is imminent. This helps the
driver to gauge and take preventive action before any accident happens. In
addition, Driveri (ADAS) also monitors and alerts the driver for drowsiness or
inattention, conditions that can potentially lead to a collision resulting in
major loss of life and property.
“India has a very poor road safety record with
over four hundred thousand road accidents recorded last year. ADAS solutions
specifically customized for the Indian road and driving conditions are the need
of the hour and will play a significant role in making our roads safer,” said
Avneesh Agrawal, Founder and CEO of Netradyne. “We believe that Driveri will
immensely benefit the commercial vehicle segment in India. With the ADAS
solution customized for the market we are able to provide valuable insights to
commercial fleet operators on their most prized assets: drivers and fleet,” he
Driveri (ADAS) consists of multiple features
that are designed to assist drivers. Several of these features are being
adopted across global markets and India is catching up to global standards of
safety. Rising global awareness of technological advancements has led to an
upsurge in consumer demand for such innovative technologies which are capable
of enhancing safety standards. In addition to accident prevention, Driveri’s
ADAS solution helps educate and improve driver behaviour and habits through
regular feedback and monitoring.
Driveri is equipped with Quad-HD cameras that
provide a view of the road similar to the driver's perspective. The device uses
NVIDIA’s Jetson TX1 TeraFLOP processor, which is capable of one trillion
calculations per second. Using Netradyne’s world leading proprietary deep
learning algorithms for video processing and NVIDIA’s cutting-edge hardware,
Driveri can provide real time safety assistance to drivers and help avoid
