Distracted driving, talking on the phone, texting, eating, reading—these are some of the most common causes of automotive collisions. With over 1.2 billion vehicles on the road today and millions more being added each year, driving can be hazardous to your health. Caruma Technologies wants to change that and today announced a new technology offering that combines Computer Vision, Deep Learning and Big Data analytics into a powerful yet easy-to-use vision-based connected car platform.
- The company plans to bring advanced technology used in autonomous cars to any vehicle to make driving safer, more efficient and more secure.
- With a complete, context-rich picture, the system can help to improve driver performance and reduce liability risk through driver scoring, a critical tool for coaching purposes and improving driving practices.
- The company is working with partners to accelerate deployment into vehicle fleets and expand its business as a retrofit device for the millions of vehicles currently on the road and into new production vehicles.
“When these high-risk driving events or collisions are detected, the Caruma Cam automatically records a short video of the event. The video and data are then sent to Caruma’s private cloud where it is analyzed and processed.”
