How Apps are Making Fleets Safer
Safety is perhaps the most critical factor for any fleet manager and AI technologies bring new ways to improve safety for fleet drivers.
Telematics has been the backbone of fleet monitoring for some time and continues to provide the fleet managers with valuable insights. The last few years have seen an increased demand for logistics and transport solutions, a demand which has pushed fleet management firms towards more innovative solutions, including AI, computer vision and mobile apps.

A desire to cut hardware costs, streamline solutions as well as the rise of connected vehicles have all been the driving forces in the market. The fleet management industry now has an opportunity to fully embrace the technological advances in the fleet safety area that are better and more affordable than ever before.
How do you manage fleet safety in your business?
Your company's fleet is one of its most important assets, as are the drivers who work hard on your behalf. It makes sense to take steps to improve the safety of both. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2,077 transportation-related occupational fatalities in 2017. That number doesn't even include nonfatal injuries. Fortunately, there are many simple and inexpensive steps you can take to improve safety, one of those is Currux Vision, a computer vision app that can analyze the road in real time.

Currux Vision can significantly increase the safety of the vehicles in your fleet and the drivers who operate those vehicles. While the actions you take to enhance safety may also result in improved overall operations, reduced costs and better performances, the real reward is peace of mind which you will achieve knowing that you've done all you can to ensure the safety of your fleet and drivers.

Currux Vision provides:
  • Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)
  • In-vehicle driver coaching – crash detection with varying degrees of warnings
  • Driver safety scoring system
  • Real-time fleet tracking system available from phone and dashboard.
  • Map based information recording
  • Online/offline navigation
Driver Coaching - Gamification and Making Safety Fun
For each trip, our AI generates a safety score which is shared with the driver as well as displayed on the fleet manager dashboard. The ADAS collision detection and lane crossing warning system better reinforces driving habits.

Driving safety scores can be used whenever you want to give your drivers a salary bonus.

Let's take a look at a short video demonstrating this:

Fleet monitoring software can contribute to positive results. These cost-effective solutions can identify unsafe driving practices such as speeding, tailgating or heavy braking. Therefore, drivers can be re-educated before their behavior becomes ingrained.

Do you want to try it as a driver? Simply install the Currux Vision app on the App Store and put it in the windshield area of your vehicle on a simple phone holder. It will work in any vehicle.
