Rand McNally adds video telematics to its fleet platform

Rand McNally has launched an advanced two-way dash camera powered by Machine Vision (MV) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) telematics. The new camera, part of the Rand Video Telematics solution, is available for shipment and subscription now. Engineered to improve fleet and driver safety, Rand Video Telematics (RVT) helps safeguard fleets from fraudulent claims as well as helps reduce collisions and potentially lowers insurance costs, the company noted.

The RVT hardware and platform has flexible features to adapt to all sizes and types of fleets. The advanced technology on which the platform is built, streamlines alerts for drivers and managers, supplying insights without requiring much time or effort and significantly reducing false alerts.

The road-facing camera uses advanced “machine vision” to aid drivers and warn them before collisions may happen. If there is an event, the camera records and saves video, which is automatically uploaded to the cloud for safe storage.

The optional cab-facing camera uses intelligence to help improve and most importantly, protect drivers in case of an accident. The AI used in the camera is powered by Surfsight, a Lytx solution. As a result, Rand Video Telematics uses the market-leading database with 120 billion miles of professionally analyzed driving data.

If privacy is a concern, the device can be used as a roadway-facing dash cam only. The in-cab facing camera can be disabled and capped, or uniquely, used as a sensor identifying distracted behavior, without video recording. Also, the roadway-facing camera can live stream video to provide managers with instant access to what’s going on at the job site, backups at the yard, and other daily situations.
