Finnish technology company Kiho has developed the first AI-based driver’s log, which learns to distinguish between the driver’s working time driving from leisure time driving. Innovation helps improve the efficiency of time consumption by drivers while eliminating manual logging.

Kiho, which specialises in mobile work digitalisation, has invested in the product development of AI-based applications for the last two years. Previously, the company’s work management systems utilised telematics and IoT.

“The driver’s log based on AI helps improve the efficiency of drivers. Errors are eliminated as the AI learns to recognise location-based pats, while all data is recorded real-time in the driver’s log. The driver will only have to acknowledge the reason logged by AI”, describes Kiho’s CEO and architect of innovation, Antti Koponen.

AI takes care of middle management routines

The open source code-based Kiho Smart Driver’s Log is only the first step towards mobile work digitalisation. The company’s experienced product development team is already planning ahead. The next step is to harness Kiho’s AI in collecting invoicing material and carrying out working time logging.

“AI is entering more traditional sectors rapidly, revolutionising work”, explains Koponen, as regards the company’s interest in AI.

Kiho believes that particularly middle management routine work will be handled by AI systems in the future.

“In the future, the management will mainly be tasked with ensuring that creativity and interaction are maintained for enabling the creation of new ideas. Significance stems from the opportunity to develop and influence one’s own work”, Koponen envisions.
