"Tragically, nearly 1.3 million people around the world are killed in traffic collisions every year, with another 50 million injured or disabled," said Chris Carson, founder and CEO, Caruma Technologies. "Our goal is to make today's roads safer by empowering drivers with advanced safety systems like Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and Driver Monitoring System (DMS) and the insights they gain from the data these systems produce."
