Fleet management technology company, KeepTruckin has unveiled an enhanced safety portfolio powered by the new Drive risk score and Safety Hub to give fleets a holistic view into driver safety.

The Drive risk score is a model that measures driver risk using high-frequency telematics data and AI-insights gleaned from the Smart Dashcam.

The KeepTruckin Safety Hub centralises this data and allows customers to manage a safety programme in one place.

Drive’s proprietary technology uses the tens of millions of data points produced every day from KeepTruckin’s network of more than 350,000 drivers. Calculating variables such as driver behaviour, road conditions, vehicle type, location, weather and more, Drive produces insights into driver safety.

Based on internal modeling, Drive has found the lowest scoring 20% of drivers are nearly 2.5 times as likely to have an accident.

The Safety Hub aggregates and visualises these insights from Drive and the AI-powered Smart Dashcam to help customers proactively improve behaviour. With a 360-degree view into driver safety, customers can automate coaching workflows directly from this hub. Fleets can also benchmark performance to track progress.

“You can’t fix what you can’t see,” said KeepTruckin CEO, Shoaib Makani. “With deeper context into driver behaviour available in the Safety Hub, customers can take a precise approach to managing driver safety and proactively address risky driving to prevent accidents to help everyone get home safely.”

Beyond the Drive risk score and Safety Hub, additional new features to help with identifying high-risk drivers and preventing accidents include:

  • AI-event detection: identify unsafe driving behaviour such as close following, cell phone usage, driver distraction and smoking with the Smart Dashcam
  • Speeding: monitor vehicle speed against posted speed limits in real time
  • Live visibility: capture real-time snapshots and periodic trip images to ensure unobstructed camera views, connectivity and trip progress
  • Automated collision reporting: automatic alerting and reporting when a collision occurs
  • In-app driver coaching: view videos in the KeepTruckin Driver App for proactive self-coaching
