Netradyne has introduced Driver•iHubX, the latest generation of its Driver•i accessory that enables fleets to add up to four external cameras to their existing installation. This camera addition allows for a complete 360 degree view around the vehicle. In addition to the new hardware, the company also announced a host of enhancements and new features to its vision-based safety platform in a release.
According to the company, Driver•iHubX retains the advanced features and functionality of its predecessor, while also offering additional storage to accommodate external camera views, low power wake-up for accessing external videos in standby mode, and GPIO connectivity to vehicle sensors to trigger vehicle recording. Driver•iHubX also provides the driver with external camera views through an optional external monitor to promote safer driving.
“The release of Driver•iHubX and other enhancements are an example of how we are continuously improving our features and functionality to provide useful insights to our fleet customers,” said Avneesh Agrawal, chief executive officer, Netradyne. “As a result, fleets are better equipped to understand driving behavior and provide positive, corrective coaching to drivers while creating safer roads for all.”
Fleets using Netradyne’s Driver•i are able to achieve real impacts in safety, productivity and efficiency, all while achieving cost-savings thanks to reduced incidents and the critical video recording and data sets for reported events.
Driver•i’s latest industry leading features and functionality include:
- New DriverStar Streak: Recognizes safe driving for those drivers who consistently drive within the company’s speeding policy thresholds for posted speeding and fleet-specified threshold speeding. This feature is easily incorporated into a fleet’s driver recognition or incentive program.
- Live Streaming: Enables an authorized user to view the outward or inward views of an installed Driver•i device in real-time. This functionality is helpful with specialized carriers and accident investigations. It also improves communication between the driver and fleet manager by allowing the driver to contact the manager for in-the-moment feedback and guidance on a situation as needed.
- Camera Obstruction Alert: Identifies events when the driver cannot be detected by the camera due to an object or material placed over the inward camera lens or when there is an issue with the device such as improper installation of the camera, tilt of the camera, location of the camera or other hardware issue. Fleet managers can now easily identify obstruction events that are caused by a driver or passenger versus events that are the result of a hardware issue and manage as appropriate.
