NEW YORK, Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fleet Managers have a number of responsibilities – their company vehicles, the services or goods they provide, but above all their top priority is getting their team of drivers home safely after the end of their shift. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), driver assistance technologies have the potential to reduce traffic accidents and save thousands of lives each year. To provide fleet managers with a wider range of hazardous occurrence information and in-cab coaching to alert drivers in real-time of high-risk driving behaviors, Verizon Connect unveils its Advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) Dashcam .

The new Verizon Connect dash cam uses advanced artificial intelligence to enable real-time detection of potentially dangerous driving events and to enhance driver safety. Available to new and existing Fleet and Reveal customers, Integrated Video can be used with two new camera models, including a road-facing camera only – which can be upgraded with a driver-facing camera add-on – and a double-sided camera.

“The new AI Dashcam includes advanced features designed to enhance safety and provide better insight for fleet managers,” said Erin Cave, director of product management Verizon Connect. “The new technology is an important step in helping our customers future-proof their fleets.”

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) help monitor tailgating, pedestrians and cyclists, while the Driver Monitoring System (DMS) tracks distracted driving, phone use, fatigue and more Again. Hardware features of the recently launched single and dual camera models include:

  • Modular design: Easily upgrade from single forward facing camera to dual camera functions with the driver facing add-on.
  • Smaller and more elegant: Unique device for road and driver facing images and easy to install yourself with less cables or wires.
  • Time-tested: The hardware will enable valuable improvements in the near future.
  • Privacy by Design: The new hardware comes with lens caps for added privacy when video recordings are not required or required.
  • Cabin audio alerts: Drivers will be alerted in real time to dangerous driving events.

Verizon Connect’s AI Dashcam provides audible alerts to drivers when it detects dangerous driving, including signs of fatigue, distraction, and phone use, then instructs drivers to take corrective action. Cloud-based AI distills data into actionable insights and video footage is automatically analyzed to determine severity and tagged with context so managers know what’s important and actionable to improve driver safety. Customers can automatically send video footage of incidents to the platform so they can be reviewed by the appropriate people and managers. In the case of a driver driving recklessly, the manager can use the footage to coach and discuss safety habits.

Verizon Connect continues to be recognized for product innovation. In 2021 alone, Verizon Connect won nine industry awards.
