October 4, 2021: The Hi Tech Robotic Systemz (THRSL) has hailed union minister Nitin Gadkari’s vision for making Indian roads accident-proof as in a recent meeting of the National Road Safety Council (NRSC) the minister advocated for fixed driving hours for commercial truck drivers like that of pilots, as well as a policy mandating on-board sleep detection sensors in commercial vehicles to reduce road accidents in India and give relief to truck drivers.

Anuj Kapuria, founder & CEO, The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz, said: “We welcome Nitin Gadkari’s vision of making Indian roads safer. With fixed hours of driving and the promotion of onboard sleep detection sensors, we have a chance to leapfrog any developed country by implementing AI-based systems. We at THRSL have a mission of transforming logistics with autonomous mobility and AI-driven automation. Adoption of advanced technology will play a crucial role in improving road safety and bringing down the number of road accidents and casualties and will make Nitin Ji’s vision a reality.

ADAS provides a split-second advantage to the driver’s response time, thus helping avert accidents and promoting safe driving behaviour. Our vision-based driver-assistive systems for trucks and buses enable active safety thereby preventing accidents. This will significantly improve safety on Indian Roads not only for drivers but also other vulnerable road users like pedestrians and two-wheelers.”

The logistics sector, which is a key enabler and the backbone of any growing economy, is primarily dependent on drivers who operate for long hours in tough working conditions. SaveLIFE Foundation and Mahindra, in a study initiated in 2020, found that Indian truck drivers drive 12 hours a day covering about 417 km, with almost 50 percent of them admitting that they feel sleepy or tired while driving.

Founded in 2004, The Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz, is a pioneering intelligent enterprise AI and robotics company that delivers AI, CV enabled robotic, and autonomous mobility solutions for businesses across multiple industry verticals. “The company is revolutionizing on-road logistics with its vision-based autonomous and driver assist solutions (ADAS), aimed at enhancing safety, visibility, efficiency, and productivity by reducing inefficiencies in supply chain and fleet operations,” reads the note.

THRSL’s ADAS solutions, edge AI-based camera system, enable real-time risky incident detection and provide pre-emptive in-vehicle alerts and coaching, promoting safe driving behaviour and minimizing accidents. Further, THRSL’s ADAS solutions re-enforce more compliant driving and help fleet owners/managers to meet customer expectations of timely delivery. In addition to giving pre-emptive alerts, the THRSL ADAS solution can also log hours of service along with driver authentication.
