A new fully-integrated video telematics system has been launched by Webfleet Solutions.
The Webfleet Video package combines Webfleet telematics technology and video technology from Lytx on one platform.
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.
Webfleet Video comes with the Cam 50 dash cam, designed to use AI technology to automatically identify risky behaviour, such as distracted driving and mobile phone usage, and notify the driver with a visual and audio alert.
Privacy is said to be protected as users can turn the cabin-facing camera on and off, or turn on 'privacy suppressed' mode preventing data from being retrieved, while a physical cap for the camera is also supplied.
Webfleet Solutions vice president for Europe Taco van der Leij said: "For the fleets we serve, safeguarding drivers is crucial, and 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."
