Newton Technologies | Feb 19, 2019
Every year, over 1 million people die in driving crashes around the world. This makes driving one of the top 10 causes of death globally and the only one that is human-created. Back in 2017, we decided to leverage our backgrounds in AI, product, and transportation in order to tackle that problem. That was the start of our ambitious mission to help reduce the number of driving-related deaths to zero.
We have since then had the privilege of working alongside some of the best minds in the industry, developing relationships and partnerships with leading companies in the space, and creating technologies in connected mobility, safety mapping, and driver behavior analytics. Through our driver assistant, we are able to give drivers personalized risk profiles, safer routes and real-time warnings that keep them safe. We strongly believe our technologies will help us build the future of safer, smarter transportation.
We have always held Nauto in high regard, and it has become clear that Nauto is the right home for Newton’s team and technology. We are beyond excited to join Nauto — doing so will allow us to take our work to the next level as we strive towards our shared goal of making driving safer and smarter. We are confident that, by joining forces with their talented team and leadership, we will be able to add value to the many drivers who rely on Nauto to stay safe.
We would like to thank our investors at Pear Ventures, our customers, families, friends, and advisors. Thank you for your relentless support and belief in our work.
