SmartDrive's Driver-Assist Sensors Honored at BIG Awards
Dec. 5, 2017—SmartDrive Systems, a company specializing in video-based safety and transportation intelligence, announced that its SmartSense Intelligence Suite is a finalist in the Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Awards for the “Business New Product of the Year” category.
SmartDrive SmartSense is a new line of intelligent driver assist sensors designed to identify distracted driving at the root cause.
The first sensor in the SmartSense suite, SmartSense for Distracted Driving, detects when a driver is distracted or inattentive and triggers a video recording based on driver behavior alone.
The sensor uses infrared sensors to capture distraction and alerts fleet managers so they can prioritize review and risk scoring accordingly.
SmartSense for Distracted Driving merges sensor, vehicle and environmental data to create a convergence of information that better equips fleets for a more autonomous-focused world.
"We are truly honored SmartSense has been recognized as a new product of the year in this year's BIG Awards for Business," says Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. "As the industry is continuing to move toward autonomous vehicles and smart infrastructures, it is more important than ever that we tap advanced technologies to improve driver and fleet safety."
