Teletrac Navman introduces advanced AI-powered safety features to IQ Camera

Teletrac Navman, the connected mobility solutions provider, has announced the release of driver distraction, cell phone usage, and drowsy driver detection to its AI-powered dashcam and video telematics solution, the IQ Camera.  

“AI-powered video telematics solutions leverage advanced algorithms to monitor different aspects of driver behavior,” said Mayank Sharma, Global Head of Product Management, Teletrac Navman. “We are excited to bring these new detection features to the market through the IQ Camera and provide real-time alerts and insights to reduce the likelihood of incidents and promote the well-being of drivers.” 

The IQ Camera’s video telematics capabilities can identify behavior, such as mobile phone use, erratic head movements and gaze deviations, and help the driver maintain focus on the road. For driver fatigue, continuous monitoring of physiological indicators, such as eye closure duration and head position, triggers timely alerts to combat drowsiness and fatigue-related collisions. 

The system’s Drowsy Driving detection feature addresses the critical issue of driver fatigue by analyzing eye closure duration to detect signs of drowsiness, providing timely alerts. The suite’s Cell Phone Distraction Monitoring is designed to combat the dangers of mobile phone-related distractions, by detecting when drivers hold their phones to their ears for a specified duration, taking proactive measures to discourage illegal behaviour and promote a safer driving environment. 

In cases when distraction, cell phone use or drowsiness is detected, and the time parameters are met, an alert is triggered to the driver. They’ll hear an audible spoken word alert and to the back-office team as an event with footage and telematics data in TN360, Teletrac Navman’s fleet management system.  

“Fleet managers gain real-time footage alongside data insights and are empowered to protect their drivers and gain a competitive edge to win business,” added Sharma. “By showcasing the solutions available through the latest technology, including route optimization, delivery tracking and always-accessible location services, Teletrac Navman can help businesses of all sizes become a transport partner of choice.”
