Save Lives. Save Money. Now.

Nauto has the only real-time, AI-enabled fleet and driver safety platform that helps predict, prevent and end distracted driving.

Our mission

Nauto® is the only real-time, AI-enabled driver and fleet safety platform to predict, prevent, and reduce high-risk events in the mobility ecosystem. By analyzing billions of data points from over 1 billion AI-analyzed video miles, Nauto’s machine learning algorithms continuously improve and impact driver behavior before events happen, not after. Nauto has enabled the largest commercial fleets in the world to avoid more than 70,000 collisions, resulting in nearly $300 million in savings.

Nauto will lead the evolution to AI-enable fleet safety and management. We believe that the path to safe transportation begins today by helping and learning from real drivers. The roadmap below outlines our path to making this a reality.

Improve road safety today

Nauto AI fleet management software is being deployed by commercial fleets around the world to reduce distracted driving and prevent collisions before they occur. Our AI-enabled device combines dual-facing dash cameras, computer vision, and proprietary algorithms. Nauto assesses and understands how drivers interact with the vehicle and the road ahead to detect and provide real-time driver coaching.

Protect drivers and their privacy

Nauto only surfaces the safety insights that matter most to protect the privacy of commercial drivers. By deploying AI on the edge, we’re able to detect distracted driving and immediately coach drivers with in-cab notifications. Only a fraction of driving time — such as distractions or other high-risk events — is uploaded to the cloud, where it’s synthesized into actionable insights to enable fleet management and safety leaders to identify and coach high-risk drivers.

Learn what kinds of data we collect

AI meets human driving

By learning from driving data in the aggregate, we can better understand real-world drivers to uncover trends, challenges, and edge cases across our network of fleets. Together, with our AI technology partners across the automotive, insurance, and municipal sectors, we’re working to drive the future of transportation forward one Nauto AI-enabled vehicle at a time.
