Frequently Asked Questions
Video telematics systems provide a high-visibility tool for lowering risk and increasing productivity among a driver pool. They generate “event” clips of speeding, distraction, and other risky behaviors that allow fleet administrators to coach drivers to improve. These snippets help exonerate commercial drivers when a passenger vehicle cuts off their truck. Video can also validate stops to ensure productivity metrics are met.
Once implemented, video telematics (especially systems powered by artificial intelligence) can result in a high return on the initial investment to deploy the technology.
Accident video from dashcams validates that commercial drivers are often not at fault. The majority of truck accidents (80%) are caused by passenger cars, according to the American Trucking Association. Video from dash cameras is often rendered in high definition, showing how the accident unfolded. This gives a more accurate picture of the incident.
In-cab video cameras can be used for theft detection, because they activate during a break-in and often include infrared technology that provides a clearer nighttime image.
Video systems come in three varieties – road-facing, driver-facing, and a multi-camera system. You’ll need to know which one you want, then you can determine how many pieces of hardware you’ll need to install in your truck. Multi-camera systems use auxiliary cameras that are usually mounted to the sides of vehicles or behind a trailer.
When paired with track-and-trace GPS vehicle tracking, video offers an even more powerful tool, because it’s supplementing data you’re already receiving. It’s sharpening the spear. While a GPS tracking module uses an accelerometer to deliver G-force triggers, video shows an image of what’s actually happening inside the truck. It’s crucial to make sure that your new video system integrates with your tracking product.
“Video doesn’t lie,” telematics analyst Clem Driscoll has said. When you can show drivers irrefutable evidence of risky driving during a weekly coaching session, you’ll start to see progress. Oftentimes, drivers become ingrained with their habits and aren’t even aware of the risks they’re creating to your business.
AI cameras can do a lot more – do you need the capability? These systems can supercharge your driver safety initiative by delivering more accurate and timely event clips. They can provide automation such as in-cab audible alerts to help drivers self-coach. They offer improved detection of distraction and drowsiness and greater immediacy around alerting.
Some dash cameras arrive as a “one box” solution – meaning the GPS tracking is built into the device – while others pair with a tracking module. You’ll need to know the components of the solution, so you can plan installation to minimize time the vehicles are out of service. Your telematics service vendor may be able to help you get the cameras and other hardware professionally installed or provide an installation guide for a self-install.
Drivers need to be included in every step of the process, so they remain engaged in the company’s safety initiative and culture. Don’t play favorites, and provide recognition to the best or most improved drivers. You might be able to use gamification strategies so drivers compete with each other to see who can score highest.
