Bengaluru-based startup Netradyne, committed to developing AI-based solutions for the automotive industry to prevent road accidents, has partnered with the non-profit organization Drive Smart Drive Safe (D2S ) to analyze the data collected during its field tests and submit their findings to the Ministry of Road Transport.

The data, they hoped in a press release, could aid in the government’s overall efforts to repair crash-prone areas they identified along the test route.

The two organizations successfully completed a 3,500 km car rally led by a five-member female team from Amritsar to Kanyakumari as part of the government’s India Against Road Crash program. The cars, fitted with Netradyne’s AI-based Driver-i driving aid tool, collected volumes of data along the route.

Union ministers Nitin Gadkari and Rajnath Singh launched the rally in February as part of National Road Safety Month. “The data will be used to improve the road infrastructure along the auto rally route,” said D2S founder Ramashankar Pandey.

Netradyne vice chairman Durgadutt Nedungadi said road accidents injure around 5 million people every year. The startup is working to halve accidents by 2030 using AI-powered solutions.
