Through this partnership, Stellantis said it aims to equip fleet owners with a vehicle safety solution that provides real-time alerts to help prevent collisions, promotes safer driving behaviors, and helps reduce collision losses.
"Driver safety within our commercial fleet customer base is our top priority and this is an important and exciting new endeavor as we partner with Nauto by offering next-gen, AI-based advanced driving assistance technology in our commercial vehicles," said Jeff Kommor, U.S. head of Sales for Stellantis. "Through our Stellantis Ventures arm, investment into startup companies like Nauto help support Stellantis' Dare Forward 2030 efforts in leading the charge to sustainable and safe mobility, as well as a better in-vehicle experience overall."
Statistics from NHTSA reveal that motor vehicle traffic fatalities have reached their highest levels since 2005.
"I am truly excited about our work with Stellantis, as it represents an important milestone in our mission on the road to zero fatalities," said Dr. Stefan Heck, CEO of Nauto. "This partnership not only streamlines access to proven safety technology, but also reinforces our commitment to enhancing road safety. Together with Stellantis, we are empowering more fleets with the tools they need to prioritize safety, reduce risk, and protect their drivers and everyone else that shares the roads, including fellow drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists."
