Webfleet Solutions, a leading telematics providers and part of Bridgestone, launched WEBFLEET Video into the market. The integration of Webfleet Solutions and Lytx, a provider of video telematics, on one platform simplifies fleet management. With the integration, users can access and manage both their vehicles and their in-vehicle cameras from a single interface.
Road-facing and optional cabin-facing HD dashcam footage displays alongside driving data, giving users the full context of road incidents. Users can request video from a specific time and position of a previous trip. They can also instantly livestream from the road to take action immediately when an incident occurs.
WEBFLEET VIDEO + CAM 50
Accompanying WEBFLEET Video is the CAM 50 dashcam. This hardware uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to automatically identify risky behavior such as distracted driving and mobile phone usage. When it does so, it notifies the driver with a visual and audio alert, helping them avoid dangerous situations.
“For the fleets we serve, safeguarding drivers is crucial,” says Matt Gunzenhauser, director of US Sales, Webfleet Solutions. “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 both clear examples of how they can drive safer. It further provides evidence to protect them if they’re targeted by a fraudulent claim.
“AI takes things a step further.” Gunzenhauser continues. “Rather than just reacting to incidents that already happened, it proactively prevents dangerous situations from developing in the first place. And it does so accurately. It utilizes algorithms that are based on Lytx’s more than 20 years of high-quality data collection to deliver 95% accuracy on motion alerts.”
Along with keeping drivers safe, WEBFLEET Video is also designed to help fleets meet their region’s privacy legislation demands. For example, users can configure the driver-facing camera to be on, off, or turn on privacy suppressed mode. This mode prevents users from retrieving video from the device. Webfleet Solutions also delivers the dashcam with a special cap to close the cabin facing camera if needed.
“With WEBFLEET Video, we provide a truly best-in-class video telematics solution,” Gunzenhauser says. “Our goal is to empower fleets to effectively increase safety, lower insurance premiums and reduce vehicle downtime.”
