Parcel delivery contractors, including linehaul and pickup and delivery, often need an approved portable VEDR device installed in their rental vehicles to meet their contractual obligations, the companies noted. The Surfsight AI-12 VEDR can capture in-cab and road-facing video to help with training and exoneration, providing fleet managers with on-demand access to video footage (subject to cellular connectivity). Using machine vision and artificial intelligence, the Surfsight AI-12 can detect the use of a handheld device, eating, drinking, and smoking while driving, inattentive driving and not wearing a seatbelt–coaching drivers in real time, Lytx said.
