How it works

See how the Lytx DriveCam camera 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 devices 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 Event Recorder 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 200 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.
