Netradyne updated its driver safety system with new features and an improved processor to better manage real-time data, the company announced Oct. 6.
The Driveri D-430 video safety device will retain features and functionality of its predecessor but with new hardware intended to improve performance. That includes processing capabilities, upgraded imaging sensors, more accurate GPS and improved visual object detection, the company said.
“What we’ve done is we’ve bumped up the computing speed,” Adam Kahn, president of the commercial fleet team, told Transport Topics. “That allows for information to be processed faster, and it allows us some head room to develop additional pro-driver and driver-friendly alerts and events that we can add to the portfolio.”
Driveri provides fleet managers insights into driver activities and drivers real-time feedback on their driving. It also streamlines coaching workflows by providing automated sessions through its mobile app. The upgraded hardware allows for new features to further help track and reduce risky driving.
“With this newest release, we have pushed the boundaries of computational power, thereby enabling the system to quickly and accurately recognize superior driving performance or address risky driving behavior in real-time before it becomes an unsafe event,” Netradyne CEO Avneesh Agrawal said.
The new features include recommended coaching to help fleets determine which drivers need guidance, along with a compound alerts feature to add context to existing base alerts and highlight risky driving events involving multiple driving behaviors. Another new feature lets fleets group vehicles together, while a location feature provides better visibility into vehicle location, ignition status and speed.

“All that information, the detection of the event, the causality of the event and the reasoning that the program applies to that driving scenario, are all computed at the device level,” Kahn said. “I can create awareness to the driver very quickly. So if I need to send an audio, self-coaching, in-cab notification, then the driver gets some self-coaching guidance.”
Kahn added the additional processing power also means there is more headroom to update the software down the road. That could take the form of building out an even larger portfolio of driver events and warnings.
“This is Netradyne staying in the technology wheelhouse,” Kahn said. “As processing moves up, we want to make sure that our customers get the very best system that gets them information as quickly as possible.”
