Lytx announces enhancements to DriveCam system

Lytx has unveiled new enhancements to its DriveCam video telematics safety program that will streamline workflow, capture even more unsafe driving behaviors, and make fleet tracking easier for fleet managers on the go, the company said.

The DriveCam exception-based video safety program combines video capture of road incidents such as hard braking or sudden swerving, data analysis of those incidents, and personalized coaching insights to improve driving behavior. Today, Lytx helps protect more than 600,000 commercial and government fleet drivers under its DriveCam program, the company said.

DriveCam video is captured by an event recorder mounted on the windscreen of the vehicle. In addition to video camera lenses, the event recorder is packed with sensors that can detect more than 70 driving behaviors, from rapid acceleration to excessive speed. Lytx is also adding valuable new video capture triggers to identify and help extract even more risk from commercial and government fleets.

The enhancements are as follows:

  • Two new triggers to identify even more unsafe driving behavior: The Rolling Stop trigger detects when a driver fails to come to a complete stop at a stop sign, and the Roll Stability trigger works with a third-party roll stability system to detect when there’s a rollover risk.
  • A new Mobile Fleet Tracking solution, allowing fleet managers and business owners to track and manage their vehicle from any mobile device. Designed with an intuitive map interface, Lytx Mobile Fleet Tracking enables: Live fleet maps across your phone, tablet and desktop, to understand at a glance and on the go, where each vehicle is; vehicle search and list management, to manage your fleet in real time; GeoFence administration, to track and manage fleet vehicle routes; vehicle history, to understand where the vehicle has been, and when; and data from the service is integrated with DriveCam data to give fleet managers and business owners a more complete picture of driving behavior.
  • DriveCam Enterprise program, a web-based workspace employs state-of-the-art data visualization design principles, serving up information that is most relevant to that particular user, whether a coach, a safety manager or a business owner.
