National Transport Insurance (NTI) has strengthened its link with safe-driving technology firm Seeing Machines.

Seeing Machines’ Guardian product detects fatigue and distraction related driver events in real time and will be a part of a range of differentiated commercial offerings, the insurer says.

This will extend to a collaborative approach around the interrogation of data, collected by Seeing Machines "with a view to empower and equip industry and operators with key statistics and insights relating to risk management and insurance".

Exclusive benefits delivered to mutual NTI and Seeing Machines customers through the partnership include:

  • no driver experience restrictions for NTI Fleet and Yellow Cover policies
  • excess reduction
  • market value plus
  • reinstatement of the Seeing Machines hardware.

"We’re committed to the safety and long-term sustainability of Australia’s transport and logistics industry," NTI chief sustainability officer Chris Hogarty says.

"Together we are ‘walking the talk’, and moving beyond assessing that fleets and transport businesses have safety policies and procedures in place.

"Our exclusive partnership enables NTI to promote the uptake of Seeing Machines’ Guardian technology, whilst also taking advantage of research opportunities and exchange critical data."

The link is one of a number Seeing Machines has with insurers globally, the company says.

 "Partnering with NTI in Australia will open up significant opportunities to accelerate growth in our Fleet business locally and create new information based collaboration and services," Paul McGlone says.

"We are delighted to be working with NTI, who, like Seeing Machines, are focused on customer service as well as road safety."
