Netradyne introduced Driver•iHubX, the latest generation of the company's Driveri accessory that enables users to add up to four external cameras to their existing installation for a complete 360 degree view around a vehicle.
In addition to the new hardware, the company also announced a host of enhancements and new features to its vision-based safety platform.
DriveriHubX 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.
Driveri’s latest features and functionality include:
- 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, company officials said.
- Live Streaming: Enables an authorized user to view the outward or inward views of an installed Driveri 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 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.
“Positive feedback betters relationships with employees and maintains a culture of trust, where drivers are valued and respected,” said Adam Kahn, president of Netradyne. “The release of the new DriverStar Streak, monitoring speeding is one way we can enable our customers to easily identify drivers who drive safely in specific situations as well as over time. Fleets that use this feature and our other new enhancements will realize the benefits of increased driver engagement, improved driver performance and safer driving.”
