Technology: Rand McNally’s video telematics now running on its new vehicle platform
Utilizing machine vision and artificial intelligence technology, the Lytx DriveCam event recorder helps to monitor and evaluate driver performance by accurately identifying behaviors such as failure to wear a seatbelt, following distance and lane departure, the company says. The windshield-mounted system is designed to help improve driver safety, operational efficiency and DOT compliance, and serves as an effective tool for driver training. It can also assist in defending professional drivers when accidents occur due to other road users.
The plug-and-play Lytx DriveCam prep kit is mounted on the bottom of the truck’s windshield. The prep kit includes the full wiring package, and additional accessories can be purchased directly from the supplier.
With live-stream functionality, the camera system enables fleet managers to troubleshoot operator issues like fatigued or distracted driving. Always-on cellular, cloud connectivity and optional continual recording allows users to evaluate, verify and address critical moments and driver actions in real time. Further, the company says, Risk ID without Recording is a configurable option that uses precise technology to detect patterns of designated in-cab driving behaviors without having inside-lens footage stored on the device.
