Nauto has announced a new integration of telematics into its safety platform, as well as additional safety enhancements.
The company says it will now be offering telematics alongside driver and vehicle safety capabilities on a single device and software platform.
Nauto has also added new detectors that are designed to provide distinct alerts that differentiate between pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists, when there is a risk detected of colliding with one of these vulnerable road users. Nauto shared a sobering statistic from the CDC indicates that in 2021 one in six people who died in crashes were pedestrians while the average size of the verdict in the US trucking industry has gone up by 867% from 2010 to 2018 according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute of Legal Reform.
“We are thrilled to announce the integration of core telematics functionality into our safety platform,” said Yoav Banin, chief product officer of Nauto. “With this enhancement, we’re streamlining the fleet management experience, offering a comprehensive solution that simplifies the complex landscape of multiple technologies. Our goal is to provide fleets with a single, powerful solution that not only enhances driver and road safety, but also optimizes day-to-day operations and reduces cost. Furthermore, the new detector for vulnerable road users represents a significant milestone on the Road to Zero fatalities.”
