A.I. saw the sign: Video intelligence opens safety focused eyes

There’s a lot of video footage streaming off trucks with the continued adoption of in-cab camera systems. Both road- and driver-facing cameras capture important safety related footage, but who has time to watch all of that? Not you, busy fleet manager. That’s why video telematics providers are layering artificial intelligence (A.I.) on top of their video data to produce alerts that bring the most important footage to the top of your inbox.

And it’s getting smarter every day. Recently, Lytx announced that its machine vision and artificial intelligence could proactively detect driving behaviors including handheld device, no seatbelt, food or drink and driver smoking. It also can detect and understand road signs such as speed limits. For a behind-the-digital-code look at the growing role A.I. has in video telematics and safety training, I connected with Del Lisk, vice president of safety services, Lytx. Watch the conversation above for all of the insight.
