National campaign is aimed at developing solutions to reduce serious injuries and create a future with zero roadway fatalities
WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Nov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Powerfleet, Inc. (Nasdaq: PWFL) today announced it has joined a U.S. Department of Transportation initiative to reduce the rising number of serious injuries and deaths on America's highways, roads, and streets. The National Road Safety Strategy (NRSS) Call to Action campaign encourages leading organizations to advance their efforts to create a future with zero roadway fatalities.
The U.S. has seen a sobering 29% increase in trucking-related fatalities over the past decade. Powerfleet is committed to eliminating roadway incidents through the deployment of its fleet intelligence platform, Unity, data science, and SaaS solutions to mitigate unsafe driving habits across enterprise vehicle fleets that transport goods and carry passengers across the country every day.
"The safety of drivers, passengers, and fleets has always been our top priority, and Powerfleet is fully dedicated to developing AI-led technology to reduce the number of injuries and deaths on America's roads," said Steve Towe, Powerfleet's Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud to partner with the Department of Transportation and other safety focused organizations to transform how we as a nation address road safety."
Powerfleet's Unity platform integrates speed and seat belt status alongside accelerometer-based data including harsh acceleration, braking, and cornering to deliver advanced insights and trigger safety alerts through advanced data intelligence. Fleet managers can leverage real-time monitoring to incentivize safe driving habits with rewards and identify coaching opportunities for low-performing drivers. Pairing this real-time data stream with dual-facing dashcams, Powerfleet provides drivers with instant feedback on distracted or unsafe operations to create safer driving habits.
