Fleet AI Dash Cam for Truck
Fleet AI Dash Cam for Truck
Ask professional drivers about their opinions on dual-facing dash cams, and you might receive mixed responses. However, as more drivers have used them, their sentiment towards dual-facing dash cams has changed. They now recognize that these cameras protect their livelihood and reputation.
A recent survey of YUWEI AI Dashcam customers showed that after implementing dual-facing AI Dashcams, driver turnover was reduced to less than 5%. Furthermore, businesses that use inward-facing cameras experienced a 3% increase in driver retention after 75 weeks compared to those using road-facing dash cams. This positive impact on driver retention was observed across fleets of all sizes.
As the acceptance of dash cams grows, more and more drivers are realizing the benefits of inward-facing cameras. Here are some key ways in which dual-facing dash cams are earning drivers' trust:
1. Protection from road rage and hit-and-runs
With the increasing dangers on North American roads, drivers need all the protection they can get. YUWEI's "Quick Capture" feature allows drivers to instantly record high-risk incidents around them. Whether they are cut off, boxed in, or encountering aggressive drivers, drivers can document such incidents with the push of a button. The recorded footage can be shared with the safety team to exonerate drivers or educate the team on best practices. In the event of a collision or hit-and-run, safety managers are automatically alerted, enabling immediate assistance for the affected drivers. This level of care makes drivers feel valued and builds their trust.
Being wrongly accused, especially in accidents, can have severe consequences for professional drivers. Dash cam videos can quickly prove the innocence of drivers who are falsely accused. YUWEI AI Dashcams capture incidents in ultrawide, high-definition (HD) 1080p, leaving no doubt about what happened and who is liable. With the adoption of dash cams, 80% of surveyed YUWEI customers have been exonerated for not-at-fault accidents. Data from the American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) indicates that dual-facing dash cams exonerate drivers in over half of insurance claims and nearly half of court cases.
3. Professional development:
Over time, unsafe habits like tailgating and distracted driving can become ingrained in drivers without their awareness. AI fleet dash cams can address these safety lapses in real-time by alerting operators when such behaviors occur. By correcting unsafe driving behaviors before they cause accidents, there is a reduced need for disciplinary actions after the fact. Drivers prefer dual-facing dash cams that facilitate proactive safety approaches over punitive ones, as reflected in their 19% higher approval rate.
4. Dash cams facilitate continuous improvement:
As operators embrace modern technology, they are utilizing the freedom it provides to grow faster and smarter. Some approaches they are adopting include:
Self-coaching through driver apps:
Modern driver apps like the one from YUWEI deliver coaching tips to operators after every unsafe driving incident. This enables drivers to self-coach using their smartphones, promoting personal growth at their convenience.
Improving performance and morale:
Safer driving performance not only enhances road safety but also boosts operators' confidence. The longer drivers go without triggering unsafe events, the more confident they become. A track record of fewer close calls and accidents creates opportunities for promotion, recognition, and peer respect, leading to greater pride in their work.
Using safety scores to track performance:
Driver safety scores serve as reliable tools for evaluating performance based on driving metrics such as cell phone use, speeding, and close following. In addition to identifying areas for coaching, scorecards help managers recognize and reward drivers for improvement and excellence. Gamifying safety through scorecards fosters friendly competition among drivers, promoting a positive and collaborative environment that keeps teams engaged.
5. Driver Privacy:
Concerns about privacy often lead to resistance towards dual-facing dash cams. However, some dash cams, like the YUWEI AI Dashcam, come equipped with features designed to protect driver privacy. Driver Privacy Mode allows drivers to disable the driver-facing camera when they are off duty. Fleet administrators can activate this mode for individual drivers, groups, or the entire fleet. YUWEI can automatically enable Driver Privacy Mode when the engine is off or idling, ensuring that drivers' private moments remain private.
