    DriveCam Overview

    Lytx DriveCam: Intelligent dash cam technology

    Powered by machine vision and artificial intelligence to provide a clear, accurate, and timely picture of fleet risk -- including distracted driving.

    Intelligent fleet dash cams, built to last

    Our state-of-the-art Lytx DriveCam® event recorder goes beyond traditional dash cams by pairing machine vision with artificial intelligence (MV+AI) to accurately identify and categorize the moments that matter, allowing you to see risk as it occurs. And our dash cam technology can help you quickly detect and deter distracted driving, the biggest safety issue on our roads today. Our rugged, reliable hardware does it all in a single, integrated device that simplifies installation and eliminates connection issues.

    The DriveCam® event recorder can be configured to offer:


    Advanced machine vision and artificial intelligence capture and accurately categorize risky driving behaviors.


    Records up to 400# hours of reliable, continual video.


    Light and audio alerts notify drivers of their risky behaviors, helping them stay focused on the road.


    Manage distracted driving and other unwanted behaviors without recording video of the driver.


    See what's happening in and around vehicles in near real time.


    Connect up to four additional cameras using the Lytx Hub™ Adapter and additional SF-Series or third party auxiliary cameras.


    Quickly identify which drivers are using your vehicles at different times without installing additional equipment.


    Captures speed, fuel, and vehicle data directly from your vehicle.


    Our wide angle, dual lens shares the big picture — on the road and inside your vehicle.


    Enables your drivers to proactively record video when needed.


    High lumen infrared LED lights provide clear visibility, even at night.


    Sound recordings from inside and outside the vehicle ensure that you’ll have all the details when an incident occurs.

    How it works

    See how the DriveCam event recorder operates to help you proactively detect and deter risk.

    Reduce distracted driving with machine vision and artificial intelligence-enabled dash cams

    Our dash cams use machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) technology to accurately detect the risky and distracted driving behaviors that make the greatest impact on our roads today. Our DriveCam event recorders provide audio and visual alerts to help deter risky driving habits in the moment by prompting drivers to immediately correct risky behaviors, including cell phone use, general inattentiveness, eating or drinking, smoking, seat belt use, speeding, failure to stop at intersections, lane departure, and following distances. Get maximum, sustained results with minimal managerial time and effort.


    Know who’s driving which vehicle at any time with Lytx Badge

    Manage driver-vehicle assignments without additional hardware, accessories, or added costs using Lytx Badge, a Driver ID feature offered through your Lytx account. Lytx Badge allows fleet managers to create driver-specific QR codes that can be printed or sent electronically to mobile devices. When your driver starts their vehicle, the DriveCam sounds an audio alert that prompts them to scan their code, connecting the driver’s name with all vehicle data from their trip.

    Supports live streaming and continual recording

    Get immediate access to the video evidence you need – right from your Lytx account. Protect your drivers and your company reputation with on-demand access to live streaming and up to 400# hours of continually recorded video per device.

    Enhanced driver privacy options

    You can configure our MV+AI to detect risky behavior without needing to record video of the driver. For fleets with special concerns around driver privacy, our device can continue to deliver real-time alerts to enable drivers to self-correct, along with manager reports to drive accountability. 


    Frequently asked questions

    The DriveCam device mounts to a vehicle’s windshield and is set up to record the road ahead and inside of the vehicle. Video recordings are captured when the camera is triggered, either by a sudden change in motion (like hard braking, swerving, or collision) or a specific behavior, like cell phone use. Each video clip includes the moments before and after a risky driving event occurs. When the DriveCam camera is triggered to record, lights flash to notify the driver of the recording. In addition, drivers can manually capture video when needed. 

    You can also set the DriveCam device for continual recording or live streaming. Continual recording captures up to 400# hours of video from the camera. Live streaming can help you understand road conditions, blocked access, and other issues drivers might encounter. 

    Recording video with a fleet dash cam and the Lytx Video Platform is just the beginning. Lytx customers have options for additional services based on their business goals.

    • Need to track your fleet with GPS to optimize efficiency and improve customer service? Our Fleet Tracking Service allows you to track vehicles with the added power of video. 

    Lytx draws from more than 25 years of experience and billions of miles of professionally reviewed driving video that enables us to offer intelligent, proven solutions for fleets. While any dash cam system can bombard you with video clips and leave you to sort for the ones that are meaningful, our solutions focus on capturing true risk, delivering fast, reliable results while helping you gain efficiency. 

    Our team is continuously innovating, drawing from the latest in sensor fusion, machine vision, artificial intelligence, and behavior science to create technologies that help fleets quickly achieve long-lasting results with minimal time and effort. In fact, Lytx was ranked highest in innovation in the 2023 ABI Research Competitive Ranking report

    In addition, we place a strong emphasis on customer service and offer a customizable product portfolio that can be tailored to meet your organization’s unique needs.

    Fleets across all industries have seen results from using Lytx and the DriveCam device, including reducing claims costs up to 80%. Here are some client stories that demonstrate the DriveCam technology’s effectiveness: 

    Liquid Environmental Solutions saw an 80% reduction in traffic violations, a 58% reduction in the severity of risky driving events, and a 60% reduction in driver cell phone use. 

    Cargo Transporters experienced an 83% decrease in near collisions, a 76% reduction in traffic violations, and a 33% drop in unbelted drivers. 

    Doughtnut Peddler achieved 58% fewer incidences of speeding, a 50% decrease in handheld cell phone use, and a 46% improvement in seat belt compliance.

    The DriveCam camera can record the way you want. It can passively record in a short, constant loop, but only save footage when triggered by an incident. When triggered, the DriveCam device saves a short video clip that includes footage immediately before, during, and after the event. 

    In addition, you can configure the DriveCam camera to continually record or live stream. Drivers can also manually enable recording when needed. For fleets with particular privacy concerns, our MV+AI is also capable of detecting risky behaviors such as cell phone use, seat belt noncompliance, eating, drinking, or smoking, and alerting the driver – without having to record video
