Maruti Suzuki has introduced 'Aritra', a camera based image processing technology, at IDTR (Institute of Driving and Traffic Research) Sarai Kale Khan in Delhi. "Aritra" stands for navigator in Sanskrit and it uses geo-mapping and image sensing technology to give an accurate blue-print of a driver's progress on the identified tracks and empowers the trainer to be more accurate in the assessment. The company has invested Rs 1 Crore for the implementation of this camera based image processing technology and IDTR Bahadurgarh is the first one to adopt advanced tracks and sensors for training.

This cutting-edge technology has been exclusively developed and piloted by Maruti Suzuki and it is for the first time that this technology is being used for training the learners in the Indian market. Aritra eliminates any possibility of human errors, bias or lack of judgement on part of the trainer. The Aritra is installed at IDTR to cover three important tracks - Parallel Parking, formation of 8 and R Track (for reverse parking). 26 cameras are installed across these tracks to capture vehicle movement. The progress of the learner is measured on 8 different parameters. Benchmark for each parameter is mapped to an ideal path that the company has developed from its experience of driving training for the last 16 years.

In addition, Maruti has developed a mobile app that enables the trainer to enter live feed, show the progress visually on the tab while on the track itself. This helps in faster implementation of feedback. The learner also has an option to take prints of the progress sheets for his reference. The company currently has 7 IDTRS and over 450 Maruti Driving Schools in several cities in the country. Maruti Suzuki's driving institutes offer comprehensive curriculum including vehicle control and mechanisms, rules of road, laws and driving, first aid, grooming tips, etiquette, being a good road user and attitudinal change towards road safety. It took over one year for Maruti to implement Aritra.
