Detroit introduces Detroit Connect Video Capture service

The proprietary digital service provides a layer of safety for users by recording safety events, such as active braking and roll stability.

Detroit announced the launch of its newest safety feature the Detroit Connect Video Capture (DCVC) service as a subscription-based option in the Detroit Connect Portal. The proprietary digital service records safety events such as active braking, roll stability events and other various events. It provides actual video footage of events when they occur on the road or at a job site, the company says.

The new service is complimented by two other available safety services–Safety Event Viewer is the standard service for vehicles, while Safety Analytics is an optional feature providing more in-depth data insights.

The Detroit safety-reporting feature allows customers to focus more time on optimizing vehicle performance and reducing driver incidents and downtime:

  • Forward-facing video capture solution using Detroit Assurance MPC2 camera;
  • Critical event videos displayed in Detroit Connect portal when safety events occur;
  • A video recording surrounding a 30-second safety event;
  • Critical truck information, such as speed and braking profile, is shown alongside video;
  • Location of safety events displayed on a map view;
  • Summary of events displayed on dashboard;
  • Event trends and diagnostics;
  • Filtered functionality of video recordings;
  • Fleet summary view; and
  • Video commenting and tagging capabilities by fleet.

“With [DCVC], customers will have access to comprehensive visual data that will allow truck owners to coach drivers through dangerous situations, increasing safe driving behaviors long-term,” said Len Copeland, product marketing manager at DTNA. “This technology is an integral part of providing safety for fleets.”

DCVC is available to customers for order when new trucks are spec’d. Subscriptions are offered in one, three- or five-year terms.
