TELEMATICS provider Webfleet Solutions, part of Bridgestone, is collaborating with Lytx, a global provider of video solutions for fleets, to allow users to access and manage both their vehicles and their in-vehicle cameras.

Lytx’s camera technology will be added to Webfleet’s fleet management platform, combining Webfleet’s vehicle and driving data with Lytx’s advanced machine vision (MV) and artificial intelligence (AI) powered camera technology to give users the full context of how their fleet is operating on the road.

Users gain more insight into critical events, helping them to prevent accidents, increase safety for the driver, enhance fleet efficiency and reduce the frequency and cost of insurance claims.

Damian Penney, Vice President, Europe at Lytx, said: “Many fleet managers today leverage more than one technology, which can be a lot to juggle. Finding opportunities to consolidate is crucial. Through this integration, customers will be able to seamlessly access industry-leading video-based driver behaviour and fleet management insights.”

The combination of video and telematics data offers a number of opportunities to help safeguard drivers and fleets. Webfleet, for example, provides actionable driving behaviour insights and real-time feedback for events such as idling or harsh braking, promoting safer and more sustainable standards.

With the addition of Lytx’ video technology, fleet managers now have a better understanding of why these events occur. They can protect their drivers from non-fault claims and coach them to achieve road safety improvements.
