Lytx launches new driver ID tool

Lytx has announced its new driver identification solution, Lytx Badge, which is designed to help streamline fleet administration.

The company says Lytx Badge uses machine vision to make it simpler and easier for fleets to manage driver-vehicle assignments without lost key fobs, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags or other driver identification accessories.

Lytx Badge detects driver identification using a QR code, without requiring any additional hardware. Using the DriveCam Event Recorder, Lytx says the driver can quickly and accurately scan in his/her credentials to associate themselves with the vehicle, enabling a fleet manager to identify which driver is operating which company vehicle at any time.

Once the driver or technician starts the vehicle, the Lytx DriveCam Event Recorder automatically starts as well. The driver then scans his/her unique QR code using the in-cab camera, either from his/her badge or cell phone. When the code has been accepted, the DriveCam will make an audible beep and the driver is set up to begin driving. The new Lytx Badge driver identification feature works with the DriveCam SF300 device and requires no additional hardware.

Through his/her Lytx account, a fleet administrator will generate individual QR codes that can be adhered to each driver’s physical identification card or accessed digitally on mobile devices. These codes can quickly be created or replaced via a Lytx account, so fleets will not be slowed down if a driver loses their code or if the fleet adds new drivers.

With Lytx’s solution, the company says, the driver’s name is recorded along with the vehicle data, giving fleet managers visibility into both worker and vehicle data, including a driver’s hours for each day, week and month; how much time the vehicle is being driven during each shift; and how much idle time occurs.

Events captured by DriveCam are automatically assigned to the appropriate driver before they reach the safety manager’s or coach’s dashboard. This eliminates the step of manually assigning events and thus, saves valuable time that can be redirected for driver coaching.
