PowerFleet launches advanced vehicle video solution with AI capabilities

PowerFleet Inc. has announced the launch of Vista, an in-vehicle video solution that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze and proactively manage risky driving situations across fleets. With Vista, PowerFleet is expanding its image technology portfolio, which includes the patent-pending LV-710 freight camera for trailers and containers and the CP4 System designed for the industrial truck market.

Vista is a flexible video solution that can operate stand-alone or as an integrated part of any fleet management system, the company noted in a press release. It leverages the latest processor technology for edge-processing and future proofing and can be installed with minimal configuration. Vista wireless connectivity supports 4G LTE and has built-in Wi-Fi that supports auxiliary cameras for 360-degree views. Operations managers can stream live video, download video events and access all cameras through a secure and comprehensive portal.

Other key features include:

  • Live streaming: check on the conditions of the road, cab and your assets at any time
  • Real time drive alerting (in-cab feature): cameras will notify driver of safety events in real time
  • Video history review: all videos on the SD card can be accessed remotely or locally at anytime
  • Parking mode: cameras will record any events that occur following sudden jolts when the vehicle is turned off
  • Event-based notifications: including harsh acceleration or braking, distracted driving traits, harsh cornering, speeding and more

The global demand for dashboard and 360-degree camera technology is growing due to a considerable rise in the number of vehicle related accidents, thefts, and “nuclear verdicts” (jury awards of more than $10 million) in the trucking industry, PowerFleet noted. The National Highway Safety Administration (NTSA) reports that an estimated 38,680 deaths in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2020. Up to 96% of all auto accidents are a result of human error, which further emphasizes the need for fleets to invest in technology to maintain the safety of drivers, pedestrians, and assets.

Recorded video events provide additional contextual insights around hard braking and turning events, vehicle accidents as well as vehicle and content theft. Vista delivers real-time, high-definition video from both road and driver facing cameras to bolster safety and training programs, help exonerate drivers, prevent accidents, and lower insurance costs.
