SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform announced


SmartDrive Systems has launched the SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform and SR4 hardware, which the company says will deliver driving performance insights and analytic intelligence by fusing data from all systems, all sensors and the operating environment.

The SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform includes SR4 hardware, triggering and risk identification, analytics powered by SmartDrive SmartIQ, and a video safety program. According to SmartDrive, the platform helps commercial and transit fleets improve safety and efficiency, and manage the new set of business challenges arising from the progression of more autonomous technology on the vehicle. The SR4 hardware delivers the compute power required for computer vision, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving applications, the company notes.

“It will help our customers solve a long-standing business challenge—disparate, siloed information stemming from a myriad of disconnected on-board devices that increase operational costs without delivering commensurate value,” said Steve Mitgang, chief executive officer of SmartDrive. “The introduction of this new platform provides a foundation on which to build as new and enhanced technologies are adopted in the next three to five years.”

Features of the SmartDrive Transportation Intelligence Platform highlighted by the company include:

  • Advanced risk assessment and driver-assist: New SmartSense ADAS sensors informed by over ten years of machine learning; in-cab alerting for short following, forward collision and lane departure warning; and posted speed detection identify high risks and enable drivers to react in real time;
  • More power in the smallest hardware footprint available; less than half the size of its predecessor;
  • More multi-camera support for 360 degree visibility: Directly connects to up to nine cameras and integrates easily with those from third parties without requiring any additional hardware;
  • Integration with WABCO’s OnLane for road-facing camera;
  • More storage capacity for Extended Recording service: Solid-state drive technology and three levels of storage—up to 512GB—provide more context and recording longevity;
  • Expanded integration options to third-party systems: Six ports enable data integration and triggering from other on-board systems;
  • Mixed fleet capability: Current SmartDrive customers can leverage both new and pre-existing hardware;
  • Enhanced reliability and security: Tamper-resistant hardware, improved over-the-air upgrade experience and fewer components; and
  • SmartChoice Video Safety Program: Flexible program allows fleets to choose among various levels of protection and camera configurations.

SmartDrive released the new Transportation Intelligence Platform to early adopters in the fourth quarter 2017.
