SmartDrive’s driver assist tech recognized by BIG Awards program

SmartDrive Systems announced that its SmartSense Intelligence Suite is a finalist in the Business Intelligence Group’s BIG Awards for Business New Product of the Year category.

The annual BIG Awards program was launched to reward companies, products and people that are leading their respective industries.

SmartDrive SmartSense is a new line of intelligent driver assist sensors designed to identify distracted driving at the root cause. The first sensor in the SmartSense suite, SmartSense for Distracted Driving, detects when a driver is distracted or inattentive and triggers a video recording based on driver behavior alone.

The sensor uses infrared sensors to capture distraction and alerts fleet managers so they can prioritize review and risk scoring. The company says the technology merges sensor, vehicle and environmental data to better equips fleets for a more autonomous-focused world.

“As the industry is continuing to move toward autonomous vehicles and smart infrastructures, it is more important than ever that we tap advanced technologies to improve driver and fleet safety,” said Steve Mitgang, CEO of SmartDrive. “SmartDrive is in a unique position to combine these sensors with our video-based solutions to provide fleet managers the most complete view of what happens in the truck and on the road.”
