Lytx’s MV+AI technology explained

The innovative DriveCam® helps improve fleet safety by watching for risky driving behaviours on the road and in the vehicle.

The device’s advanced machine vision (MV) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology analyses driver behaviour and nearby vehicles to determine how a driver is performing relative to their surroundings. Specific driver behaviours such as following too closely or texting while driving, trigger the DriveCam to flag and “trigger” the event.

Lytx’s MV+AI technology helps fleets by providing an expanded view of risk. The insights from MV+AI can reveal if a driver needs to work on reducing a certain behaviour or if certain risky behaviours are appearing among all drivers. If this is the case, a business-wide initiative to improve safety may need to be implemented.

Lytx’s MV+AI technology uses information from several sensors at once to identify risky situations and driving behaviours. Machine vision can see and recognise objects and behaviour by analysing images and video data. AI interprets and learns from those images and video data to determine the likelihood that a particular event or behaviour occurred. The combination of information from video and other sensors in and around the vehicle, called video telematics, provides information to help the artificial intelligence learn—similar to the way our brains rely on information from each or our senses to understand what is happening around us.

Identifying and coaching risky behaviour is one of the most important steps in improving overall fleet safety. Lytx’s fleet management solutions use machine vision and artificial intelligence technology that helps uncover previously undetected risky driving behaviours so that fleet managers can coach their drivers to improve.

Lytx® Video Platform, powered by the DriveCam® event recorder, provides drivers with visibility in and around the vehicle; up to 4 connected cameras provide 360-degree visibility. Eliminating blind spots with sensors and cameras greatly reduces the likelihood of accidents and helps drivers contribute to the goals set forth in the Vision Zero and DVS schemes. In many cases, drivers are not even aware they are distracted. Helping drivers become aware of their performance is an important way to help keep them engaged and attentive. 

A successful safety programme requires cultural change and adoption across the entire company, making everyone a partner in safety – from executives to drivers. The Lytx Video Platform is just the start of a safety awareness campaign that drives improvements to safety throughout the fleet. In the event that something goes wrong, you can easily find the exact clips you need, providing a faster way to learn exactly what happened. Video evidence provides a direct route to the truth of what happened. This reduces claim investigation costs, helps you respond confidently and quickly to claims, and helps to avoid the risk of fraudulent claims. 

Understanding safety and managing risk benefits from a complete view into vehicles, drivers, behaviours, and external factors. The Vision Zero plan relies on safe driving practices, appropriate speeds, safe vehicles, and information sharing when a collision occurs. Knowing what is going on in and around the vehicles is the key to operating safely. 

Lytx provides you and your drivers real-time 360-degree visibility into the vehicle and its environment to help you predict and reduce risky driving incidents. You can see the whole picture.
