Daimler Truck North America (DTNA) plans to offer a factory installed dual camera module from Lytx, provider of video telematics solutions, capable of both road- and driver-facing digital video recording, to speed deployment of the risk-mitigating technology to Freightliner and Western Star trucks.
In addition to video capture, the dual camera system incorporates machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) technology and components of the Lytx Video Safety offering.
The Lytx system works alongside active safety systems also available as options for trucks manufactured by DTNA and complements other camera options available from the company. An active subscription with Lytx is required to use their system and access video footage.
Ordering for the Lytx dual camera option will begin later this fall, with the first Lytx-equipped trucks to be built in February 2023 for the Freightliner Cascadia and March 2023 for the Western Star X-Series line of 47X, 49X and 57X models.
