Rand McNally’s video telematics now running on its new vehicle platform

 Rand McNally announced that its Rand Video Telematics (RVT) solution is now available on the company’s newly released Rand Platform. This advancement comes just three months after the company launched its camera, and two months after the acquisition of an Australian vehicle platform and company.

In addition to the benefits of signing into one platform and ability to bolt on devices and vehicle types, RVT customers will have access to the following advanced features:

  • The platform’s drag-and-drop workflow tool;
  • Enhanced reporting and dashboard views of advance fleet tracking features such as details from vehicle “breadcrumb” trails, geofences, and more.
  • The ability to create geofence interactions.

Moreover, recent upgrades to the dual-facing camera offers the ability to monitor road-facing risky driving behaviors such as tailgating, collision detection, unsafe cornering, harsh braking, and sudden speed increase.

In March, Rand McNally launched a two-way dash camera with machine vision (MV) and artificial intelligence (AI) telematics. The RVT (Rand Video Telematics) solution is powered by Surfsight, a Lytx solution, harnessing intelligence from a database with more than 185 billion miles of professionally analyzed driving data.

The solution has several useful features unique to in-vehicle cameras. First, the device can be used as a two-way camera or a roadway-only facing dash camera. In cases where privacy is a concern, managers can disable and cap the in-cab-facing camera – or use it as a sensor to help identify distracted driving behavior without video recording. Secondly, the roadway-facing camera can live stream video to provide managers with instant, real-time access to what’s going on at the job site, backups at the yard, and other daily situations.
