Zantrik develops AI-based driver monitoring system
Zantrik, the Dhaka-based on-demand vehicle maintenance services company, claims to have developed an AI-based system called 'Drive Safe' that can monitor a driver's real-time driving behaviour.
It observes a driver's body language, trajectory and builds a profile to alert him/her in case of sleepiness with improvement suggestions. Data can be analyzed and used for research by insurance & ride-sharing companies, vehicle manufacturers or even BRTA.
"Drive safe" has participated in a two-month rigorous selection process and development program, jointly organized by the "National University of Singapore" and "Center of Excellence (CoE) for Frontier Technology''.
Shubho Al-Farooque, CEO of Zantrik said, "Every year road accidents kill 5k+ people in Bangladesh and 1.35M worldwide. When we started this project, we just wanted to solve a real problem."
