We are a logistics risk reduction startup, building an intelligent driver safety system that utilizes AI to reduce road accidents and support the ecosystem around it.
Our unique approach gamifies driving by rewarding safe driving behavior with points that can be redeemed for rewards.
Real-time feedback and correction of driver behavior are provided through an asset-light solution for maximum efficiency and effectiveness.
Drivers especially commercial vehicles are a completely ignored lot. Shockingly their life expectancy could be lower by as much as 15 yrs. vs. the general population. Road accidents are a major loss to Fleet owners (Truck/Bus) and Insurance companies. India alone loses 3.14% of its GDP in RA. Third-party claims account for 40k Crs. a year loss to Insurance companies. Truckers lose over 4 lakhs per accident on average.
Our goal is to create a significant impact in the “LIFE OF A TRUCKER” IN TERMS OF LIVES SAVED and make their lives more convenient and rewarding.
