Samsara launches new remote driver safety training features

Samsara has released three new features for its AI Dash Cam, which are built to help fleets navigate the challenges associated with remotely coaching, training and engaging drivers.

The three new features are:

  • Mask Detection: Using advanced artificial intelligence, dual-facing Samsara AI Dash Cams can now automatically detect if a driver is not wearing a mask. With optional in-cab alerts for drivers and auto-uploaded footage for safety managers, Mask Detection makes it possible to remotely coach drivers on this new behavior, the company says.
  • Live Streaming: Safety managers have the option to perform virtual ride-alongs by accessing live video of vehicles on the road. With this launch, Samsara says in-cab alerts notify drivers any time a live stream starts and ends to ensure drivers always know when Live Streaming is activated.
  • Driver Video Share: Safety managers can share event videos directly with drivers, enabling remote and self-guided coaching. Even after the COVID-19 pandemic is over, Samsara says, this feature will allow drivers to receive 1:1 coaching and feedback without needing to go back into the office.
