Navistar to offer Nauto predictive AI safety tech
By Julian Buckley16 February 2022
Navistar and Nauto have announced a distribution agreement which will see Nauto’s predictive-AI vehicle safety solution available for new fleet vehicle purchases.
The system will also be available as an upgrade for existing fleet vehicles throughout International Truck’s dealer network.
“Navistar has always been a pioneer in industry-leading aftermarket offerings and the AI driven Nauto camera system further builds on that legacy,” said Chintan Sopariwala, group VP, Parts, Navistar. “With the addition of Nauto’s predictive-AI safety technology to our aftermarket parts portfolio, we are taking a significant step forward towards our commitment to safer roads through safer driving.”
As a manufacturer of Class 6 through Class 8 trucks, Navistar is said to have more than one million International trucks operating across North America.
Nauto’s AI technology tracks and analyzes risk in real-time. When it detects a potential risk, it can provide preventative warnings which may give drivers extra time to respond. Nauto’s tech is based on more than 1.3 billion AI-processed driving miles to make alerts more accurate, helping to eliminate issues related to alert fatigue caused by false alerts.
“Nauto’s partnership with Navistar is an important milestone in terms of commercial fleet industry adoption. Our in-vehicle alerts and fleet safety reporting are designed to automatically help drivers be safer without manager involvement and help prevent collisions while respecting driver privacy,” said Stefan Heck, CEO, Nauto. “We enable our customers to benefit from an average 50%-80% drop in collisions and loss in just a few months and to exonerate their drivers.”
Nauto will work closely with International Truck dealers to provide this new offering tailored for heavy-duty vehicles. Packages are available now and include Nauto hardware bundled with service durations of 1, 3, or 5 years.
