Verizon Connect AI Dashcam Debuts
Fleet managers have a number of responsibilities - their company's
vehicles, the services or goods they provide, but above all, their top
priority is getting their team of drivers home safely after their shift
concludes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), driver assistance technologies hold the
potential to reduce traffic crashes and save thousands of lives each
year. To provide fleet managers with a greater range of insight into
dangerous events and in-cab coaching to alert drivers in real time of
high risk driving behaviors, Verizon Connect is unveiling its advanced
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Dashcam.
The new Verizon Connect Dashcam utilizes advanced AI to enable real-time
detection of potentially dangerous driving events and to boost driver
safety. Available for new and existing Fleet and Reveal customers,
Integrated Video is available for use with two new camera models,
including a road-facing only camera – which can be upgraded with a
driver-facing camera add-on – and a dual-facing camera.
“The new AI Dashcam includes advanced features that are designed to
boost safety and provide greater insight for fleet managers,” said Erin
Cave, Verizon Connect director of product management. “The new
technology provides a significant step to help our customers
future-proof their fleets.”
The Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) helps to monitor
tailgating, pedestrians and cyclists, while the Driver-Monitoring System
(DMS) tracks distracted driving, phone usage, fatigue and more.
The recently launched single and dual-camera model hardware features
Modular design: Easy to upgrade from single road-facing camera to
dual camera functions with the driver-facing add-on.
Smaller and sleeker: Single device for both road- and driver-facing
footage and easy to self-install with less cables or wires.
Future-proof: The hardware will enable valuable enhancements in the near
Privacy-by-design: The new hardware comes with lens caps for privacy
when video recordings are unwanted or not needed.
In-cab audio alerts: Drivers will be alerted of unsafe driving events in
Verizon Connect’s AI Dashcam provides audible alerts to drivers when it
detects unsafe driving, including signs of tiredness, distraction and
phone usage and then tells drivers to take corrective action.
Cloud-based AI distills data into useful insights and video footage is
automatically analyzed for severity and tagged with context so that
managers know what is important and actionable to improve driver safety.
Customers can automatically send video footage of the incidents to the
platform so that it can be reviewed by the appropriate people and
managers. In the case of a driver recklessly driving, the manager can
use the footage to coach and discuss safety habits.

Dashcam as products that distinguish Verizon Connect from the
