Coaching workflows for managers and drivers

The advent of AI-based video telematics solutions has made real-time driver coaching possible. ADAS and DMS-based event detection algorithms can detect risky situations and alert drivers to take corrective action. This form of real-time coaching is immediate and has direct consequences for driver and fleet safety, which is a big driver of the adoption of…

Agree to drive blindfolded for 5s?
Would you agree to drive a truck blindfolded for the length of an entire football field on a busy road? Most people would find this question preposterous. Being distracted for 5s at a speed of 55mph is equivalent to driving the length of a football field while blindfolded!  This behavior resulted in the unfortunate deaths...

Video telematics with DMS: A complete guide
ADAS-based electronics systems that aid the driver and enhance safety were the starting point of a technology-led evolution that has brought us on the ramp towards full automation (Levels 1-5). From its humble beginnings with passive driver alerts to the more sophisticated self-driving systems being tested on roads today, the primary focus has been on...

Milestones from a road less travelled
For a technically complex end-to-end video telematics platform like RideView, stripping off as much of the complexity for end-users as possible, while still retaining the core essence of the underlying technologies should be a north star. For us, this has sometimes led us to take the harder, unconventional option, when easier (for us) options were readily available. Avoiding...

Remote device management – Provisioning and OTA updates
Standalone dash cams with inbuilt connectivity (LTE), compute for advanced AI on the edge (ADAS and DMS), and storage for video loop recording are rapidly becoming the norm in the commercial fleet space. This groundswell of demand cuts across fleet segments, sizes, and geographical locations – driven by the rapid evolution of video telematics solutions, hand in hand with...

Video Telematics – A Complete Guide
What is Video Telematics? Telematics has been traditionally used to track the location of any vehicle, and other data from the vehicle bus (CAN, J1939, etc.). In the present day, however, the ambit of telematics data has grown to include a wealth of information with respect to the vehicle and its driver. The use of...
