Geotab and Lytx announced the availability of an integrated camera solution from Surfsight on the Geotab Marketplace. Enabling customers to access more visibility, the Surfsight AI-12 camera solution is designed to help improve fleet safety through its continuous recording and advanced machine vision (MV) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

Announced at Geotab Extend 2021, this new offering is the first to be available as part of Geotab’s new Order Now program, which will allow customers to expand their Geotab solution at the click of a button.

Offered by Lytx, the Surfsight video technology integrates with Geotab’s telematics platform, providing fleets with access to a dashboard camera solution that offers insight into risky driver behavior through a combination of MV+AI, sensors, and live video streaming. The Surfsight AI-12 offers more than a simple dashcam, with distracted driving detection, audio, and visual alerts and the ability to connect auxiliary cameras.

The Surfsight AI-12’s MV+AI technology can help identify risky driving behaviors including smoking, eating and drinking, handheld device use, unbelted driver, and distracted driver. When connected with Geotab’s GO9 device, it can also capture video evidence of sudden acceleration, sharp turns, and harsh braking. Through access to these insights, fleets can help prevent avoidable accidents and in turn reduce the likelihood of driver or pedestrian injury, insurance claims, maintenance costs, and unnecessary downtime.

As the first solution available through the new Geotab Order Now program, customers can purchase the Surfsight camera solution directly from within the MyGeotab platform, which will then be fulfilled by an authorized Geotab reseller. To provide customers with a streamlined and unified experience, Geotab will provide ongoing technical support for the Surfsight offering and additional third-party solutions that join the program.
