DriveCam program being enhanced, says Lytx

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The Lytx DriveCam video telematics safety program will see some enhancements to help streamline workflow, capture more unsafe driving and ease tracking for fleet managers, the company said Oct. 2 during the American Trucking Associations’ Management Conference and Exhibition.

Two new video capture triggers with DriveCam include a rolling stop detection and roll stability.

Fleets can configure how they want the triggers to work, whether they want rolling stops to be acceptable or require the need for their drivers to come to a full stop.

Brandon Nixon, chairman and CEO of Lytx, also touted the company’s ActiveVision service, which detects driver behavior, and the launch of a new video-without-limits Unisyn platform as huge successes for Lytx.

Unisyn offers instant access to always-on video, is highly configurable and has a future-forward friendly environment.

“Video is the single richest source of information you can have, bar none, but it is very difficult to extract the information,” said Nixon.

The DriveCam platform combines video capture of road incidents, analysis of those incidents and personalized coaching insights to improve driver behavior. Video is attained by a recorder mounted on the windscreen of the vehicle and is packed with sensors that can detect more than 70 driving behaviors.

Lytx is also working on a new workspace portal for its customers.

“Our objective for the new DriveCam enterprise workspace is to improve efficiency for anyone who relies on DriveCam data to do their job,” said Nixon. “We’re using the power of our analytics engine to prioritize tasks, generate new visual representations of driver safety performance scores to facilitate better coaching discussions and help coaches more easily identify drivers who’ve earned positive recognition.”

Lytx said more than 600,000 commercial and government fleet drivers use the DriveCam program.

DriveCam enhancements are expected to be released throughout 2017.
