Lytx Inc. announced an OEM integration collaboration with Daimler Truck North America to use Lytx’s video telematics system and all-new camera solution integrated into select Freightliner and Western Star models, according to the company's news release.
Lytx also announced at this year’s ATA a collaboration with DTNA to launch a new vehicle telematics gateway and camera solution that can be ordered directly from the factory on select Freightliner and Western Star models.
The solution will leverage Lytx’s Lytx DriveCam components, which will be integrated into the vehicle during the production of those models, according to the company.
Customers can begin placing orders later this fall, with the first Lytx-equipped trucks to be built in early 2023 for the Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star X-Series line of 47X, 49X, and 57X models.
The OEM solution is powered by the Lytx Vision Platform.
“Combining our business strategy of offering customer-first solutions with the configuration options within the Lytx Vision Platform, we are grateful for the opportunity to work with the team at Daimler Truck North America to deliver our customizable safety solutions in an innovative new way,” said Brandon Nixon, CEO of Lytx. “This integration partnership highlights our passion for leveraging our technology and expertise to provide companies with custom solutions to fit their needs.”
