In the last few years, new technologies have emerged with the intent of ‘disrupting’ old paradigms of business across many sectors. These new and smarter modes of working often translate to workplaces that are more efficient, more cohesive, and better at bridging the gap between managers and employees.
These working techniques have particularly strong potential for sectors like fleet management that require the real-time coordination of people and assets moving between myriad locations at all times of the day and night. By leveraging the latest AI, computer vision, and edge-to-cloud technologies fleet managers can reduce the risks their drivers face on the road while gaining deeper insights into the efficiency of their operations.
The VIA Mobile360 D700 AI Dash Cam combines effective AI safety measures, real-time actionable alerts, and cloud connectivity to deliver a fleet management solution that functions on multiple fronts to the benefit of the driver, operator, and other road users. The rich data that the device captures on a trip provides invaluable insights into driver behavior, vehicle operations, and road conditions when processed and analyzed using the cloud.
The VIA Mobile360 D700 enables fleet managers to work directly with drivers to empower safe vehicle operation with applications such as AI-powered driver coaching. In a world where phones and smartwatches are providing more distractions than ever before, having technology that can counteract them is critical. With its ability to detect smartphone usage, distracted driving, drowsiness, and even smoking, the D700 can make driving safer for employees through real-time actionable alerts and assure managers that their drivers keep their eyes on the road.
The safety of drivers is further enhanced with AI-powered accident preventionfunctions. Utilizing Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Forward Collision Warning (FCW), the device swiftly alerts drivers of potential dangers on the road ahead so that they have time to take necessary corrective action to avoid any impending hazards. Fleet managers can then analyze driver and vehicle fleet histories to identify patterns of success or areas which may need improvement. Both fleet managers and drivers are able to work in tandem towards a better and more efficient fleet.
By integrating the D700 with their cloud portal, managers can gain a wealth of rich video telematics data, allowing for new modes of fleet optimization. Trip histories, from holistic views of overall performance down to granular levels of driver or vehicle performance, can be accessed with collated and customizable datasets on triggered alerts, miles driven, driver and vehicle scores, recorded collision footage, and much more.
The D700 AI Dash Cam is applicable across any fleet-management operation, from taxi and ride hailing services to freight transportation and last-mile deliveries. Ideal for the most demanding commercial-grade fleet management applications, this sophisticated co-pilot increases efficiency and, most importantly, keeps you and your drivers safe.
