Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Leading Transport and Logistics Provider Leverages Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Remove the Guesswork When Recognizing Top Performing Drivers

SAN DIEGO, July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Netradyne, a leader in artificial intelligence (AI) technology focusing on driver and fleet safety, announced Ward Trucking, a leading transport and logistics provider, has deployed the Driveri(TM) vision-based driver recognition safety program. Ward Trucking selected Driveri(TM) over legacy event recorders to help drive forward a driver-first collaborative approach to fleet safety, service and recognition, creating additional value for their customers within the supply network.

"Our team understands the positive benefits of employee engagement: working together towards common goals and key performance indicators," said Steve Dunn Director of Safety at Ward Transport and Logistics. "We were also looking to strengthen our safety program with leading-edge technology. Driveri(TM) provided a driver-friendly balance between deep insight into the driving environment, timeliness of meaningful data and recognizing the positive performance of our drivers."

Ward Trucking's decision to deploy Driveri(TM) was based on the application of AI, machine learning and edge computing. These leading technologies combined provide increased visibility into the following elements of their driver community:

    --  DriverStar events which calls immediate attention to specific positive
        decisions by highlighting exceptional driving moments
    --  Safe driving measured by GreenMinutes, the means to measure the number
        of analyzed driving minutes without risk factor
    --  Vision-based analytics such as traffic lights, stop signs and dynamic
        following distance
    --  Sudden vehicle maneuvers including hard-braking, hard-turns and
        hard-accelerations

Since deploying Driveri(TM) last month, Ward Trucking has obtained an unprecedented and immediate view into their driver's positive behaviors, including the following results from May 2018.

    --  Over 89 percent of the 1.4-plus million minutes of captured and analyzed
        driving were GreenMinutes
    --  346 recorded DriverStar events

Netradyne Driveri(TM) is the only vision-based driver recognition safety program that provides specific metrics and analysis on safe driving, removing fleet safety guesswork. The platform's edge computing capabilities enable timely processing of information, allowing fleets to accurately recognize strong results or reinforce best practices to cultivate a stronger, more collaborative relationship between the driver and the fleet manager.

"Driveri(TM) provides a platform to collaborate, share best practices, and strive for aggressive goal obtainment," said Adam Kahn, vice president of fleets at Netradyne. "We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Ward Transport and Logistics drivers and managers to meet the organization's key core value in ensuring safety as a moral obligation to both their employees and those whom they share the highways with."
