Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nauto?

Nauto is an intelligent driver safety system designed to help commercial fleet drivers like you stay safe on the road and return home safely after your shifts.

The Nauto Device installed on your vehicle’s windshield includes multiple sensors — including driver- and road-facing cameras — to help detect collisions and high-risk driving events. With Nauto, only videos or images of collisions, high-risk events, and videos requested by your management are uploaded via a wireless connection for your manager to access on his or her computer to help you avoid high-risk events in the future. Otherwise, all other recorded video remains on the device on your vehicle for up to 50 hours of driving time.

Should you ever need video evidence from the Nauto Device, you are equipped with a Bluetooth-connected Mark Button, placed inside your vehicle. You can use this button to upload video of any unsafe or unusual events, and even notify your manager by tapping the button three times.

In addition, if your company has activated In-Cab Alerts, your device will alert you when it detects certain high-risk events to help ensure your safety and prevent collisions.

Did you know? Nauto has helped exonerate commercial fleet drivers in wrongful claims and disputes by equipping fleets with video evidence that supports drivers.

How does the Mark Button work?

Your Bluetooth-connected Mark Button is designed to give you the ability to upload video and even notify your manager in the case of an unusual or unsafe situation while driving. To use the Mark Button, you have two options:

  • Marked Event: Press the Mark Button once to upload video right before and after the press. This will not send an immediate notification to your manager, but your video will appear in your fleet manager’s application. Drivers typically use this option if they witness an accident on the road to provide video evidence for others.
  • Panic event: Tap the Mark Button 3 times to upload video right before and after the press and notify your manager immediately. This will send your manager a text or email to help address your incident immediately. Drivers will use this option for escalating in-cab incidents or severe accidents. In case of an actual emergency, please follow your company’s standard procedures.

What do the lights on the device mean?

The Nauto device has one LED light facing outward towards the road, and two LED lights facing inward.

Just above the outward facing camera and beneath the Nauto logo, there is a small green LED to indicate that the Nauto Device is on and receiving power. This remains lit as long as the device is connected to power, but it does not mean the device is recording.

The two LED lights facing the inside of the vehicle indicate that the device is on and recording, and the different colors show different statuses:

  • Green: The device is active in normal daytime conditions
  • Dim Red: The device is recording in infrared to maintain high-quality image during low-light conditions
  • Blue: The device is updating its software

What video can my fleet manager see?

Nauto is built with you and your privacy in mind. With Nauto, only relevant videos and images are uploaded via a wireless connection for your manager to access on his or her computer to help you avoid high-risk events in the future. Otherwise, all other recorded video remains on the device on your vehicle for up to 50 hours of driving time. Relevant footage includes: collisions, high-risk events, events you initiate by pressing the Mark Button, and video requests from your fleet manager.

Today, high-risk events detected and uploaded by your Nauto Device include:

  • Hard accelerations
  • Harsh braking
  • Sharp cornering
  • Distracted driving
  • Tailgating

The Nauto Device will also upload video that is initiated by you or requested by your fleet manager:

  • Mark Button events: These are video uploads that you initiate through the Mark Button (learn more about the Mark Button).
  • Manager-Requested Events: Your fleet manager can request 1-minute increments of video from the device, which stores up to 50 hours of driving history. Fleet managers will typically use this feature if they need to retrieve footage to help exonerate you from a claim.

Did you know? On average, only 0.1% of driving time is uploaded by Nauto to help commercial fleets and their drivers identify ways to improve driving and safety performance.

What are Nauto’s In-Cab Alerts?

If your fleet manager has activated in-cab notifications, your device will alert you to help you stay focused on the road and ensure your safety.

Just like with high-risk events, the sensors and artificial intelligence on your Nauto Device can automatically detect unsafe driving behavior, and will alert you when it detects a high-risk driving event, such as distracted driving.

How do distraction notifications work?

For distracted driving, the Nauto Device will alert you when it detects that you are distracted for too long to help you return your focus and ensure your safety. When the Nauto Device detects that you've had your focus off the road for more than two seconds, you will receive a mild distraction alert. If you continue to have your focus off the road for more than 4 seconds, you will hear a second, medium distraction alert. For distractions lasting longer than 5 seconds, you'll hear a third notification to help prevent you from giving into dangerous distractions while driving.

Did you know? Distracted driving is a growing challenge on our roads today, claiming nearly 3,500 lives in 2016 alone. Nauto helps prevent unnecessary collisions caused by distracted driving.

How do tailgating notifications work?

To help prevent collisions due to tailgating, the Nauto Device will alert you when it detects that you are following the vehicle in front of you too closely.

If the device detects that you are an unsafe distance away from the car ahead of you for at least 4 seconds, you will hear an alert depending on how close you are to the vehicle ahead. If you continue to tailgate closer to the vehicle in front of you, you will hear additional alerts to help you maintain safe distances from the vehicle ahead.

Did you know? Nearly 50% of all moving vehicle collisions are rear-end accidents. Nauto helps drivers better understand safe following distances to help prevent these collisions from occurring.
