Sprint announced that Nauto has selected Curiosity IoT as one of its connectivity providers for its intelligent driver safety system. Sprint will also continue as a distributor for Nauto's fleet management products within the U.S., including Nauto Coach and Nauto Prevent.

"We are pleased that Nauto has selected Sprint Curiosity IoT as a connectivity provider to power its fleet products," said Ivo Rook, Senior Vice President, Iot & Product Development for Sprint. "Sprint and Nauto are committed to providing commercial fleet customers with advanced safety and management tools designed to provide intelligent insights into driver behavior, reduce collisions, and save lives." 

Nauto's intelligent driver safety system is part of Sprint's portfolio of fleet management and compliance solutions, which were announced last year. Nauto allows Sprint's fleet customers to receive in-cab notifications, coaching, and liability reduction features.

Nauto uses AI to provide real-time data to evaluate driver behavior and the external environment. Each situation is assessed as it is happening through a dual-facing camera, computer vision, and proprietary algorithms. This system also includes the ability to detect distraction and risky behaviors, allowing fleet management to identify, stop, and coach high-risk drivers. Nauto says it has seen real safety results in some fleets reducing collisions by up to 35.5%.
