Video telematics provider Lytx introduced the Unisyn platform — a new video telematics model that gives high-quality video access and video expandability to fleets and field operations of all sizes and profiles.
Lytx launched its video telematics category in 1998, combining video capture of road incidents, such as hard braking or sudden swerving, data analysis of those incidents, and personalized coaching insights to improve driving behavior. Lytx helps protect more than 600,000 commercial and government fleet drivers under its DriveCam exception-based video program.
The Unisyn platform features always-on access to up to seven days or more, depending on the user-chosen resolution, of cloud-connected video. The Unisyn platform is able to integrate and synchronize high-definition video from many different cameras, including, but not limited to:
- Forward-facing to capture what's in front of the driver
- Side view to capture activity adjacent to the vehicle
- Side-mirror to capture activity both adjacent to and near the front of the vehicle
- Rear view to capture activity behind the vehicle
- Cargo interior to capture activity within the cargo hold
- Dock/warehouse to validate activity in the presence of the vehicle
- Interior to capture situations of security concern within the vehicle
Resulting video and corresponding telematics data can be accessed from the cloud in real time or on demand, from many different cloud-connected device including iOS and Android mobile devices. In addition to choosing which cameras and where they're placed, Unisyn users will be able to tailor their program configuring myriad settings, including:
- Event recorder sensitivity: Company policies, state regulations, routes and even vehicle type can influence what a fleet manager may want the cameras to capture and to what degree. The Unisyn platform gives fleet managers the choice to turn on specific event types and set parameters for each event type.
- Customizable video tags: Unisyn's tags are used to capture, categorize and catalog video according to each organization's individual needs, whether by location, time of day, by driver, by vehicle, by type of driving event or more.
- Video retrieval policies and escalation rules. Set up video retrieval policies and escalation rules based on the data accompanying tagged videos. Flexible data filters allow companies to extract actionable insights for fleet and field operations.
- For loss prevention: Video can be tagged each time a cargo door is opened, making it easy to identify who is touching cargo, where, and when.
- To mitigate false claims: Video can be tagged to trigger when a passenger boards or disembarks a transit vehicle to help show the facts in the event of personal injury claims.
- For proof of delivery: Video can be tagged at specific destinations to serve as proof of conditions at a loading dock on a particular day, at a particular time.
