Smart Mobility Solution with Driver Behavior Detection to Reduce Road Accident Risk

Hardware: reComputer J101 carrier board for Jetson Nano module

Use Case Provider: Autilent

Application: Driver Monitoring

Industry: Transportation & Fleet Management

Autilent leverages artificial intelligence to provide smart mobility solutions and reduce road accidents using a specially designed, dual-camera device, which is powered by NVIDIA Jetson Nano with the compatible reComputer J101 carrier board. The whole solution improves driver behavior by identifying weak areas for each driver and targeting specific issues both in the cabin view and outside of the vehicle, greatly leveraging the operational efficiency of fleet management.


Every year, the road transportation industry suffers devastating losses, both financially and in terms of human life. With accidents caused by driver fatigue, drowsiness, and distractions, the toll is staggering. These incidents result in vehicle decommissioning, delays, and a tarnished reputation for the industry as a whole. To address this urgent issue, strict regulations and comprehensive driver training programs must be implemented to mitigate the risks associated with road transportation and safeguard the business’s standing.


To address the pressing need, Autilent embarked on a mission to revolutionize road safety. Leveraging cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence capabilities, Autilent aims to detect high-risk situations within and outside the vehicle to enhance safety measures. In the cabin, it’s quite important to always check on drivers’ status to avoid high-risk distractions. As for the vehicle outside, it’s really crucial to provide risk prediction for drivers rather than the traditional making of judgments by themselves.

In the meanwhile, when a company operates a fleet of vehicles, it becomes crucial to implement an integrated management system that provides detailed information and real-time updates on the vehicles and drivers. This allows for effective monitoring of the fleet’s operations, including managing and evaluating the drivers’ compliance with regulations and minimizing instances of illegal activities.

Autilent delivered the dual-camera device to detect both cabin view for driver status and road view to check the surrounding situation, powered by NVIDIA Jetson Nano module compatible with reComputer J101 carrier board.

With powerful deep learning algorithms combing with detection models such as face detection and object detection, Autilent successfully leads to faster and more accurate analysis of driving behavior, road conditions, and potential hazards based on the full support of the powerful processing capabilities of Jetson Nano. They also provide an integrated platform with detailed analytics and an experience made easy for users:

  • You can check the real-time location for fleet management
  • The registered/authorized driver can log in to his bonding vehicle with face detection and then start driving. If he/she is unauthorized, the system will detect the abnormal operation and markdown
  • Once it detects a driver’s abnormal behavior such as being distracted around, answering the phone through driving, or just being drowsy, the dashboard will count all of the distracted/drowsy time
  • You can always go review each vehicle’s report, including how long did it go, the latest location, the last driver, the vehicle information, and the latest online time.
  • There’s another option called driver report, from here you’ll see every authorized driver’s status information during a specific period of time, including the distracted counts, drowsy counts, total driving distance and time, average distance and time
