SmartDrive Systems, a provider of video-based safety and transportation intelligence, announced the release of SmartSense for Speeding for Conditions and SmartSense for Sitting Duck, offering capabilities to support and protect drivers. These intelligent driver-assist offerings represent an expansion of SmartDrive’s intellectual property portfolio, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office having issued patents in June 2020 for the technologies, which help fleets alert drivers so they can avoid driving too fast for poor weather or road conditions and assist drivers who may be parked in unsafe locations.
“With insurance premiums, nuclear verdicts and everyday driving risks skyrocketing, fleets must be able to identify hidden dangers and proactively address them,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “When the country’s leading fleets came to us with these concerns, we knew we had to challenge the status quo to find a solution. Building on our track record of technology innovation, we’ve developed two new features to alert drivers concerning weather and safe parking. We know these solutions will not only save fleets money but, more importantly, save lives.”
Speeding for Conditions and Sitting Duck are the latest in the SmartDrive SmartSense line of intelligent driver-assist sensors that alert drivers to potentially dangerous situations before a catastrophic event occurs. By combining purpose-built sensors with computer vision, engine telematics and accelerometer data, the SmartSense suite enables accurate risk identification and collision mitigation.
