Of all the technological advances mankind has achieved over the millennia that have changed the way we live and work, Machine Learning (ML) may well prove to be the one with the most powerful and disruptive effects.
And while one application – autonomous vehicles – is still in its infancy, ML applications in many other business applications are already here and more are on the way.

An IIHS study of General Motors vehicles with optional front crash prevention systems adds to the evidence that forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking prevent crashes.
“The evidence has been mounting that front crash prevention works, and it works even better when it doesn’t solely rely on a response from the driver,” says Jessica Cicchino, IIHS vice president for research and author of both studies.

—that many fleet safety professionals dread
By Art Liggio, President and CEO, Driving Dynamics
For most of my adult life, I’ve been a huge fan of Frank Sinatra’s music. One of his big holiday hits is a song written by Sammy Cohn and Jule Styne called the Christmas Waltz. Having recently heard the song one of the themes, “It’s that time of year,” kept playing over and over in my head. While the song is a romantic offering of the Christmas season, these lyrics resonant with me for much more serious reasons.
Still a number of weeks away from Christmas, we’re now about to enter our wonderful holiday season with the arrival of Thanksgiving. Of course, as a fleet safety professional, I’m also acutely aware that it’s that time of year, when we unfortunately experience some of the worst crashes and traffic fatality statistics.
— and the costs associated with it are just as troubling
In a study conducted earlier this year, Zendrive found that 69 million drivers use their phones each day (100 times more than NHTSA estimates). With distracted driving becoming the new drunk driving, what are the cost implications for fleets?
This 65-page eBook serves as an ultimate guide for fleet managers who want to cut costs, differentiate and win. Although distracted driving has been fueled by the rise of mobile devices, Zendrive has transformed ordinary cell phones into super-accurate safety tools capable of helping your fleet save millions.

Maybe it’s all the ballyhoo about how autonomous vehicles will make our roads crash-free, or maybe senior management at organizations that have a fleet are beginning to understand the true cost of crashes and expect fleet managers to prevent them.
Whatever the reason, the fleet industry at large is starting to take a zero traffic crash rate as a legitimate goal to talk about.
At least, that’s an impression you could have easily drawn by attending last month’s Network of Employers for Traffic Safety (NETS) “Strength in Numbers” Benchmark Conference in Frisco, Texas (www.trafficsafety.org). And it represents a sea-change in attitudes toward fleet crashes.
