Caruma Technologies and inthinc Technology Solutions announced a strategic partnership to design and develop the Caruma Cam Pro, an intelligent connected camera and software platform for commercial drivers and fleet operators.
The Caruma Cam Pro will instantly sense and alert drivers to dangers or distractions to help avoid accidents. Its two cameras provide high-definition (HD) video from inside the vehicle and the vehicle’s environment, accurately detecting and recording events such as texting while driving, drowsiness, obstructions in the vehicle path, lane departure or unsafe following distance.
Defined events will trigger inthinc Technology Solution’s in-vehicle verbal mentoring to provide real-time feedback to drivers. The video and data are then sent to Caruma’s cloud, where it is analyzed and processed into visual data and statistical information. This information provides fleet managers with a complete, context-rich picture that can help improve driver behavior and increase safety.
Caruma Cam Pro combines computer vision, artificial intelligence and sensor fusion into an open, connected vehicle platform to provide Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Driver Monitoring System (DMS) capabilities. Integrating advanced video analytics into the inthinc telematics solutions will bring modern ADAS elements to a wide range of commercial vehicle applications.
Under terms of the partnership agreement, inthinc will integrate its mapping and location-based software into Caruma Cam Pro and become a reseller in Caruma’s partnership program.
