Intelligent camera technology at virtual Commercial Motor Show

Attendees at the virtual Commercial Motor Show were given the chance to see first-hand how Lytx machine vision and artificial intelligence-powered solutions help equip fleet managers with the tools to proactively tackle some of the toughest problems facing their drivers today, such as distracted driving.

Damian Penney, vice president of Lytx Europe, said: “2020 has proved to be a challenging year, with many delivery vehicles under increased pressure to get goods from A to B faster, whilst also worrying about what is happening at home and with their families.”

Lytx technology is validated and backed by the largest and fastest-growing driving database of its kind, which grows by more than 140,000 new driving events each day, further training and improving its algorithms.

Penney added: “This data is incorporated into a system that is able to deliver greater than 95 per cent accuracy across 60 behaviours – unmatched by competitors in the industry.

“Compared to other video telematics, in which event capture is triggered by accelerometers alone, Lytx MV+AI enables fleets and empowers drivers to identify and correct significantly more risk, both inside and outside of the vehicle, including smoking, eating and drinking and using a handheld device while driving.

“Now, more than ever, we need to ensure that conversations about driver safety are continuing to take place and this event is the perfect arena to share industry experiences and knowledge.”
