/  The Product

AutoM8 was founded in 2020 to prevent collisions and save costs for fleet and motor insurance companies, using our next generation advanced driver assistance systems and collision management solutions.

We believe everyone should benefit from the latest in-car safety technologies, regardless of vehicle age and type. That is why we are building a ground-up reimagining of how to keep drivers safe
and vehicles undamaged.

AutoM8 is powered by breakthrough AI and the latest in advanced sensors, all wrapped in an ergonomically designed and easy-to-install device.

AutoM8 is the first to feature networking of devices, predictive driver safety alerts, individual driver improvement programmes and if the worst happens, live collision reporting via our unique collision reconstruction module.
Power North East take the guesswork out of your event by providing portable generators to allow for a reliable power supply package to suit your needs.

Our team of professionals ensure that all the necessary setup, maintenance, and removal from the site is taken care of so that you can have one less thing to worry about in making sure your special event, party, corporate venue goes according smoothly according to plan.

The price of our generator packages include all of the necessary cable connections, power inputs, and electrical switches, as well as a durable superior quality power unit.
Depending on the venue and energy needs for your event, we can provide generators ranging from 3kva all the way up to 60kva as required.

Our generators are delivered via trailer, and our team of professional installation experts ensure to place the unit appropriately, install all necessary cables and units, and stream the power in any area of the marquee including the music, bar, and catering/kitchen areas. As the host of the event you have full control of simply turning the unit off and on as needed throughout the event.


We look forward to bringing your event to life.

Networked Devices

Uniquely, our next generation technology allows for connectivity and networking between all AutoM8 devices, whether they are within your organisation or outside of it. This allows for 360 degree awareness, including information and alerts outside the range of any one device.

Imagine the benefits of knowing there is a hazard around the next corner, long before you see it, giving you plenty of time to slow down in advance.

/

Predictive Safety Alerts

Our proprietary AI maps driver behaviour against surrounding activity, with the ability to predict incidents before they occur, in real-time.

Should a driver be distracted, or should a hazard go unnoticed, and the risk of an incident is detected, in-cabin alerts will allow the driver time to rectify the situation before it is too late.

By predicting a danger before it materialises, drivers are provided with an extra layer of safety - good for the driver and other road users.

/

Driver Improvement Programmes

Data collected from our sensors not only allows for real-time prediction and monitoring, but can also be used retrospectively, to create a tailored, actionable driver coaching plan and to raise awareness around the risks of distracted or dangerous driving.

Encouraging drivers with lower safety scores, to undertake driver improvement programs, and giving credit to those with higher safety scores can drive true organisational change and develop a safer, more responsible driving culture.

/

Live Collision Reconstruction

Whilst our main aim is to reduce incidents, we know that sometimes they cannot be avoided. That is why AutoM8 devices are designed to provide a real-time overview of a collision seconds after it occurs, rather than waiting hours for a full assessment.

Our proprietary AI transforms the raw data into a comprehensive incident report, graphical overview and provides FNOL to the insurer. This reduces the administrative burden of claims management and allows all parties to get back on the road quicker, easier and cheaper, regardless of who is at fault.

/

Claims Fraud Prevention

A combination of the reports generated by our collision reconstruction software and the data from our sensors can assist in identifying attempted insurance fraud and providing tangible evidence when needed.

With substantial benefits to both insurers and policyholders, this protects drivers from being exploited by those looking for a fraudulent claim, and protects insurers from exposure to such  activities.

the future of driving starts today

We’re looking for fleet operators and insurance companies to trial our AI-powered technology installed into your vehicles.
