Webfleet Solutions launches video telematics solutions

May 3, 2021
Supported by the CAM 50 dash cam, which uses AI to automatically identify risk and help prevent accidents, WEBFLEET Video allows users to configure the solution to respect the privacy of drivers and other road users.

Webfleet Solutions has launched WEBFLEET Video, with Webfleet Solutions and Lytx telematics solutions, on one platform where users can access and manage both their vehicles and their in-vehicle cameras from a single interface.

With WEBFLEET Video, road facing and optional cabin facing HD dash cam event footage is displayed alongside driving data to give users the full context of road incidents. Users can request video from a specific time and position of a previous trip or instantly livestream from the road, to take action immediately when an incident occurs. 

Accompanying WEBFLEET Video is the CAM 50 dash cam. This hardware uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology to automatically identify risky behavior such as distracted driving and mobile phone usage. When it does so, it notifies the driver with a visual and audio alert, helping them avoid dangerous situations. 

“For the fleets we serve, safeguarding drivers is crucial,” said Matt Gunzenhauser, director of U.S. sales at Webfleet Solutions. “And the more accurate a picture you have of what’s occurring on the road, the more protection you can give them. This is what WEBFLEET Video delivers. With footage from the road, drivers get both clear examples of how they can drive safer. It further provides evidence to protect them if they’re targeted by a fraudulent claim.

“AI takes things a step further. Rather than just reacting to incidents that already happened, it proactively prevents dangerous situations from developing in the first place. And it does so accurately. It utilizes algorithms that are based on Lytx’s more than 20 years of high-quality data collection to deliver 95% accuracy on motion alerts.”

According to Webfleet Solutions, as well as keeping drivers safe, WEBFLEET Video is also designed to respect their privacy and help fleets meet the demands of their region’s privacy legislation. For example, users can configure the driver-facing camera to be on or off or turn on privacy suppressed mode so events will not be retrieved from the device. The dash cam is also delivered with a special cap to close the cabin facing camera if needed.

“With WEBFLEET Video, we provide a truly best-in-class video telematics solution,” said Gunzenhauser. “Our goal is to empower fleets to effectively increase safety, lower insurance premiums and reduce vehicle downtime.”
