The Dangers of Commercial Driving and Our Way Forward

25th June 2017, A Shell Oil Tanker met a fatal accident near Ahmedpur East, killing 219 people and incurring fines worth $2.3 Million. This is one of many such accidents that take place each day around the globe.

The road transportation industry annually loses 120 Billion dollars and another 1.35 Million human lives just due to road accidents.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that somewhere between 94% and 96% of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by some type of human error. In another report by WHO, nearly 100% of road accidents are preventable and occur due to human errors and the key reasons behind these accidents are distracted and risky driving, unauthorized drivers, and malfunctioning vehicles.

Human negligence is never-ending and can occur both intentionally and unintentionally. We, as tech founders, wanted to enable the use of tech for preventable measures of such incidents, and by leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), we did exactly that — developed Autilent.

Autilent is a smart system that uses AI and Computer Vision to help predict high-risk situations both inside and outside of the vehicle such as mobile usage, tailgating, sharp turns, and much more, to alert the relevant stakeholders in real-time.
