Road-facing and optional cabin-facing HD dashcam event footage is displayed alongside driving data to give users the full context of road incidents. Users can request video from a specific time and position of a previous trip or instantly livestream from the road, to take action immediately when an incident occurs.
Accompanying Webfleet Video is the CAM 50 dashcam, which uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to automatically identify risky behaviour, such as distracted driving and mobile phone usage. It then notifies the driver with a visual and audio alert, helping them avoid dangerous situations.
Taco van der Leij, vice president of Webfleet Solutions Europe, said: “The more accurate a picture you have of what’s occurring on the road, the more protection you can give them. This is what Webfleet Video delivers. With footage from the road, drivers get clear examples of how they can drive safer along with evidence to protect them should they fall victim to a fraudulent claim.
“AI takes things a step further. Rather than just reacting to incidents that have already happened, it proactively prevents dangerous situations from developing in the first place. And it does so accurately, utilising algorithms based on more than 20 years of Lytx’s high-quality data collection to deliver 95% accuracy on motion alerts.”
As well as keeping drivers safe, Webfleet Video is designed to respect their privacy and help fleets meet the demands of their region’s privacy legislation. Users, for example, can configure the cabin-facing camera to be on or off, or turn on ‘privacy suppressed’ mode to prevent events from being retrieved from the device. The dashcam also comes with a special cap to close the cabin facing camera if needed.
