Your vehicle has a camera and tracking unit (GPS tracker) installed. When the tracker detects a harsh driving event, a video recording of the incident is made.
The video is analyzed and classified by our software, and then is available to watch in Fleet or on our dedicated mobile app.
The tracker detects the following harsh driving events:
- Hard acceleration - if the vehicle speeds up suddenly (by more than 5 mph per second)
- Harsh cornering - if the vehicle makes a harsh turn at speed
- Hard braking - if the vehicle slows down suddenly (speed decreased by more than 6 mph per second)
- Sudden force - if the vehicle jolts suddenly (caused by impact with a person, animal or object, for example)
Analysis and classification of videos
During the analysis, our software identifies any objects in the video. It can detect objects such as other vehicles, people, and even animals. The objects are analyzed and then listed as the following events:
- Stop sign violation - if the vehicle did not fully stop at a stop sign
- Tailgating - if the vehicle was dangerously close to the vehicle in front for at least 2 seconds
The software calculates the chance of collision with an object by measuring the speed and the direction the object is traveling.
The analyzed videos are then classified as follows:
- Critical - The vehicle may have collided with a person, vehicle, or object.
- Major - The vehicle may have been involved in a dangerous situation.
- Moderate - The driving manner was inappropriate to the situation and there was an elevated risk of an accident.
- Minor - The event that triggered the recording was just above the threshold to register as a harsh driving event. The analysis suggests that an incident was unlikely.
At the end of each video we ask for your feedback on the accuracy of the video classification and analysis. We use this data to iteratively update and improve our AI software.
