Spireon announced a new modular vehicle tracking hardware device that includes optional dash cam capabilities using Lytx technology, available for the FleetLocate tracking system.
Spireon’s new FL360 vehicle tracking tool features the optional FL Dashcam, which is powered by Lytx’s Surfsight solution, the company said in a news release. The dual camera complements the advanced features and diagnostics of the new FL360 solution and existing FleetLocate offerings, with video evidence and vision-based artificial intelligence for optimized fleet operations and risk management.
"There is a clear demand from our partners and the market for a consolidated single tracking device with integrated video," said Reza Hemmati, vice president of product management for Spireon. "Having a single tracking device greatly simplifies the sales process, inventory management, and ongoing support for our partners. The addition of video opens new possibilities for fleets and provides them with contextual data for their operational and driver coaching use cases.”
FL360 is an upgraded version of Spireon's FL1 and FL4 devices. It is a fleet telematics device capable of supporting all vehicle types, from light to heavy duty, Spireon said. It offers a solution for reporting new advanced vehicle data and diagnostics.
Additional fleet management and compliance use cases are made available with expandable input/output communication capabilities, such as:
- Driver ID.
- Electronic Logging Devices (ELD).
- Power Take-offs (PTO).
- Starter disable.
As the first video-based offering in Spireon's FleetLocate collection, FL Dashcam integrates seamlessly with the new FL360 device and is compatible with all existing FleetLocate devices. FL Dashcam uses edge-computing artificial intelligence to detect a variety of driver distraction situations, Spireon said. This solution offers live view, historical video retrieval, and driver-initiated video capture to enable best-in-class risk management.
"Spireon's integration with the Surfsight dashcam will be fully baked into the FleetLocate user experience, providing a seamless interface that uses our state-of-the-art edge-computing to detect distractions," said Rob Donahue, sales channel director of Surfsight.
These new solutions are now available to FleetLocate customers.
