ADAS technology incorporated into fleet cameras provides real-time alerts and warnings to drivers, helping them avoid potential hazards and accidents. Lane departure, forward collision, and harsh braking are some of the features that can significantly improve driver safety.

And with FleetCam Pro, you gain more of these valuable built-in safety features than you would with Samsara, Lytx, or Verizon Connect.

Preventing Collisions and Accidents

Fleet cameras with ADAS are equipped with advanced sensors and algorithms to detect potential hazards and trigger timely alerts. By alerting drivers to dangers on the road, these cameras help prevent collisions and reduce the risk of injuries or property damage.

For example, using our FleetCam system, one of our clients reported zero forward collisions by comparison to the same time period year-over-year without our system. FleetCam’s safety features simply work.

Improving Driver Behavior and Performance

Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) integrated into fleet cameras monitor driver behavior and performance. They track factors like fatigue, distraction, and adherence to safety protocols. This data enables businesses to identify areas for improvement and implement targeted training, resulting in safer and more efficient drivers.

One of our customers even had three documented cases of drivers with a sleep disorder discovered through FTS’ driver fatigue alerts. These drivers received the medical attention they needed as a result and returned to work grateful for the help and improvement in their quality of life.

Reducing Insurance Premiums and Liability Risks
