Netradyne, an AI and edge computing leader focusing on driver and fleet safety, recently announced that National Interstate Insurance Company and its subsidiaries have added Netradyne’s vision-based Driveri camera technology to its camera program. This is the first fully AI-powered system to be offered under the program, allowing National Interstate’s policyholders a more attainable way to utilize this safety technology.
“Truck drivers are essential to keeping our economy moving,” explains Chris Mikolay, Vice President of National Accounts, National Interstate. “Which is why it’s in everyone’s best interest to help them do their job as safely as possible. We’re excited about the real-time insights Netradyne’s Driveri technology can provide in training, coaching and defending drivers. When properly utilized, these technologies can be real game-changers in fleet safety.”
National Interstate has been a leader in advocating camera technology as a powerful risk management tool that can improve driver behavior and assist with claims settlements. The company pioneered camera programs for its policyholders, tied to key performance indicators as a way to improve driver performance and align interests.
Artificial intelligence-driven edge computing is one of the most advanced options available for fleet safety technology. It captures and analyzes footage on the spot, alerting both the driver and fleet manager of risky behavior such as following a vehicle too closely. Through a combination of in-cab alerts, automated performance coaching, gamification, and manager support, bad habits can be effectively “trained out” of a driver, positively affecting long-term behavior. Driveri focuses specifically on recognizing and rewarding good driving, which motivates drivers and helps managers conduct more balanced coaching conversations.
“We’re excited to engage with an insurance carrier who focuses on risk reduction and data analytics,” said Avneesh Agrawal, Chief Executive Officer of Netradyne. “National Interstate is a tech-forward industry leader as evidenced by its investment in the future of underwriting by embracing AI technology for its clients.”
