Machine vision + artificial intelligence

Award-winning technology helps detect and deter risky and distracted driving in real time

Addressing distracted driving — one of the biggest issues facing our roads today

Lytx has expanded its machine vision system and artificial intelligence (MV+AI) technology on all dash cam devices to help drivers and fleet managers correct distracted driving as it occurs. Our unique machine vision technology helps identify distraction and risk, both inside and outside of the vehicle, including cell phone use, eating or drinking, smoking, seat belt use, general inattentiveness, failure to stop at intersections, weaving within or departing from lanes, and unsafe following distances. 

MV+AI can provide in-cab alerts that help empower drivers to change behavior in real time to avoid potential collisions. A complementary Lytx app helps your driver review their performance, self-coach, and optimize their driving for the next trip. Video footage and comprehensive dashboards help fleet managers track progress, drive accountability, and offer additional coaching, if needed.  

Identify distracted and risky driving behavior inside the vehicle

MV+AI works to help identify the hard-to-detect distractions that drivers face today.

Machine vision systems and artificial intelligence detect distraction and risk

Lytx MV+AI technology is constantly working to scan and evaluate driving patterns to determine potential risk. Machine vision operates as our system’s eyes, allowing the technology to see and recognize objects. Artificial intelligence is like the brain providing the system’s ability to interpret and decide. For example, machine vision sees a cell phone in a vehicle, whether it is on the passenger seat or held to the driver’s ear. Artificial intelligence then interprets cell phone images and recognizes that the phone on the seat does not represent risk, but the phone in the driver’s hand does.

Identify additional risk on the road

In addition to our new, in-vehicle capabilities, Lytx has been applying MV+AI technology to detect risk on the road ahead for many years. MV+AI can reliably detect and record road-facing risk, including:

  • Failure to stop at intersections
  • Weaving within or departing from lanes
  • Unsafe following distances

Our data helps MV+AI deliver accurate insights

To be effective, MV+AI algorithms must be highly accurate. Too many false alarms and drivers will ignore alerts. False negatives lead to missing critical events. Lytx MV+AI is backed by a peerless database of commercial driving behaviors, representing more than 185 billion miles driven in all types of vehicles and road conditions—validated by professional analysts. This allows our MV+AI solutions to identify driving behaviors with high levels of accuracy so drivers and fleet managers only get notified about the moments that matter.  

Configurable coaching options support drivers 

Lytx MV+AI integrated dash cams can capture moments of risky and distracted driving, delivering in-cab alerts that allow drivers to address risk in the moment, and video for review through an app to optimize their performance for the next trip. Fleet managers can use video and comprehensive dashboards and reporting to track progress, drive accountability and provide coaching, if needed.
