Bus Surveillance Camera System with GPS tracking function
As technology continues to evolve, bus fleets are increasingly relying on sensors and remote information processing functionalities to track driver behavior in order to improve vehicle safety and minimize risk. These tools include lane departure and collision avoidance systems, monitoring sudden braking, vehicle speed data, and camera systems, which can focus on the road, the side of the vehicle, or the driver, providing more background information for other systems.
However, when it comes to focusing on emergency braking events, it is important to protect the driver's privacy. It is not recommended to directly remotely view the truck driver's mobile hard disk recorder. Instead, companies should maintain a good relationship with their drivers and provide driving safety protection when the driver is able to accept it. In order to do this, there are various video monitoring systems available on the market for fleets to choose from, such as the bus surveillance camera system offered by YUWEI, which is waterproof and shockproof. These systems will increase driver confidence and fully rely on protecting employee safety and fleet assets.
These video monitoring systems will continue to record when the truck is started, but the video will only be saved and uploaded to the vendor or fleet when events such as collisions, emergency braking, lane departure, or getting too close to another vehicle occur.
However, the main issue that vendors currently face is how to understand "distracted driving" better, in order to better evaluate the driver's distracted driving situation. There is still more work to be done in this area. For example, smoking is believed to divert attention, but some parts of smoking may be more prone to distraction than others. Therefore, video data may help find a way to rate the potential interference of reaching out for cigarettes, lighting cigarettes, and throwing cigarette butts into ashtrays between them.
Although artificial intelligence brings hope in this area, it still cannot completely replace the human brain. The key is how fleets can use the data provided by these tools to guide drivers to drive more safely and efficiently, while ensuring that the cameras in the truck are only a tool that fleets can use to improve safety and minimize risk.
