A strategic partnership between AI company Humanising Autonomy and telematics firm Visiontrack could lead to drivers getting more advanced warnings of collision risks.

The deal will see Humanising Autonomy’s behaviour AI technology integrated into Visiontrack’s Autonomise.ai system, in order to offer advanced vulnerable road user (VRU) perception to vehicle operators.

This will enable drivers to receive real-time VRU collision warnings, by improving the capabilities of vehicle camera technology to accurately analyse and predict human behaviours. The companies say this will mean drivers are warned sooner than with conventional driver assistance systems.

According to Visiontrack, the AI technology will also allow it to identify safety challenges and key coaching opportunities for fleet customers, by better analysing incident statistics and trends using advanced behavioural insight.

Visiontrack commercial director Richard Lane said: “Humanising Autonomy’s behaviour AI platform will help to better support and protect drivers and ultimately save lives on the road.

“We are truly passionate about road safety and driver welfare, so we are thrilled about our new partnership with Humanising Autonomy. Together we will deliver cutting-edge technologies that not only benefit our customers, but all road users.”

Humanising Autonomy chief executive officer Maya Pindeus said: “For us, this partnership is further validation that our behaviour AI platform is critical in eliminating pedestrian deaths, and enabling safer fleets.

“We’re excited about the doors this opens for both parties.”
