Netradyne is working to enhance driver safety for commercial vehicles in the U.S. and India by using NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 supercomputer on a module and a four-camera video system to accelerate vision-based data capture and vehicle analysis, the company announced.

As an NVIDIA AI City partner, Netradyne leverages the Jetson TX1 and NVIDIA's Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) platform to capture and analyze the entire driving experience through deep learning. The on-device application of artificial intelligence and deep learning implemented at the edge of the network identifies positive driving activity and flags at-risk conditions, which is important information that can be leveraged by commercial fleets and insurance companies.

"We believe that computer vision based solutions will raise the bar in driver recognition and safety improvements," said Avneesh Agrawal, Netradyne's co-founder and CEO. "The tremendous parallel performance and power efficiency of NVIDIA's Jetson TX1 enables the Driveri platform to provide deep insights into driving performance and allows the greatest level of protection to drivers and their fleets." 

"GPU deep learning is transforming the application of AI for many markets, including automotive," said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of the Tegra business at NVIDIA. "By using the Jetson TX1, Netradyne is helping to build stronger AI cities that are always on and focused on keeping us safer and smarter."
