In China, semi-trucks are the primary type of fleet involved in accidents. According to statistics from 2012, trucking accidents in China caused 18,621 deaths, with 2,666 of those being truck drivers. It is necessary to install camera systems on semi-trucks for monitoring purposes. This can reduce the probability of accidents occurring within the fleet.

Camera Systems for Semi Trucks

The semi-truck camera system provides safety and management services for trucks carrying general cargo, heavy goods, and hazardous materials. The system includes real-time video monitoring and tracking of vehicle location and routes, which helps to prevent violations such as overloading, speeding, and driving while fatigued. It also standardizes driver behavior, reduces driving risk, and lowers the occurrence rate of accidents.

The semi-truck transportation logistics data and alarm information are analyzed and summarized to provide a basis for government departments and enterprise supervision decisions.

Semi-Truck Camera System Configuration

Mainframe: 4-channel Mobile DVR

Peripherals: Active safety intelligent video cameras ADAS, 360-degree surround view, DSM, HOD audio-visual alarms, displays, etc.

Platform: Semi-truck intelligent management platform

Semi-Truck Camera System Functions

Remote GPS positioning monitoring, real-time 1080p/high-definition video monitoring and transmission, voice intercom, overspeed alarm, driver status detection alarm (fatigue driving, distraction/smoking/phone use, camera occlusion alarm, mobile phone detection, etc.), advanced driving assistance system alarm (lane departure warning, forward collision warning, etc.).

Management System Platform Introduction

The system automatically processes low-risk alarms such as smoking, mobile phone use, and following too closely; high-risk alarms such as fatigue and distracted driving require real-time intervention. Driver misconduct is recorded through saved images, videos, location, speed, turn signal usage, brake usage, and accident liability can be traced. Finally, reports are generated for analysis.
