Lytx Adds New Mobile Fleet Tracking Features
San Diego-based Lytx, which develops video-based driver tracking systems under the DriveCam name, said it has rolled out new enhancements to its products, to add the ability to identify more unsafe driving behaviors. According to Lytx, the upgrades include two new triggers, including identifying when drivers fail to complete to complete a stop at a stop sign (rolling stop), and links to a third-party roll-stability system, which can indicate when drivers speed and/or road conditions are inconsistent with the load a driver is hauling. The company says it now can identify more than 70 driving behaviors via its sensors and its video camera, ranging from excessive speed to rapid acceleration. The company offers up its systems to commercial and government fleets.
