Lytx has shared its data showing that drowsy driving and falling asleep behind the wheel are dramatically declining among commercial drivers who use the Lytx Driver Safety Program.
Lytx data reflects a 39% reduction in drowsy driving events among Lytx clients from June 2018 to June 2019, and a 66% reduction in drivers falling asleep behind the wheel. The data also shows morning hours between 5 and 8 a.m. had the highest concentration of events recorded for drowsy driving, falling asleep behind the wheel, and collisions, while 6 to 9 p.m. had the fewest instances.
Lytx’s machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) algorithms are constantly advancing, increasing its ability to identify and alert for risky driving behaviors. Lytx released its first machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI)-powered solution for distracted driving in 2015, and today has more than 200,000 MV+AI-capable devices in the market, with an additional 10,000 added each month.
