SAN DIEGO — Netradyne, a provider of artificial intelligence and IoT systems said Wednesday that it’s working with NVIDIA to enhance driver safety for commercial vehicles in the United States and India.

Netradyne's Driveri IoT platform focuses on identifying, recognizing and rewarding positive driver performance.

Using NVIDIA Jetson TX1 and a patent pending four-camera video system, the company has been able to significantly accelerate vision-based data capture and vehicle analysis, according to Avneesh Agrawal, Netradyne's co-founder and CEO.

As an NVIDIA AI City partner, Netradyne leverages the Jetson TX1 and NVIDIA's Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) platform to capture and analyze the entire driving experience through deep learning, Agrawal said.

The on-device application of artificial intelligence and deep learning implemented at the edge of the network identifies positive driving activity and flags at-risk conditions, which is important information that can be leveraged by commercial fleets and insurance companies.

“We believe that computer vision based solutions will raise the bar in driver recognition and safety improvements,” he added. “The tremendous parallel performance and power efficiency of NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 enables the Driveri platform to provide deep insights into driving performance and allows the greatest level of protection to drivers and their fleets.” 

“GPU deep learning is transforming the application of AI for many markets, including automotive,” said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of the Tegra business at NVIDIA. “By using the Jetson TX1, Netradyne is helping to build stronger AI cities that are always on and focused on keeping us safer and smarter.”

Founded in 2015, Netradyne has technology innovation centers in both San Diego and Bangalore, India, where teams are focused on launching a driver safety platform for commercial vehicles.
