Could smart driver monitoring match self-driving safety?

Nauto’s CEO makes some bold claims about the potential of its AI camera-based software, writes Megan Lampinen

Smart, connected technology promises tremendous advances in driver safety, particularly for commercial fleets.

Other in-cab monitoring systems leave drivers feeling like Big Brother is constantly intruding on their privacy.
