About this webinar

Traditional CCTV is already widely used in the bus sector, but only to offer reflective playback opportunities for operators – until recently, CCTV solutions have been unable to act as an accident prevention tool. Now, with AI, we’re able to assist drivers in real time, and assist fleet safety managers to regulate driver behaviour in real time, to greatly decrease risks that can lead to accidents. With more than 100,000 implementations in vehicles, the significant impact in reducing accidents has been noted both by official government and insurance institutes.

This webinar will answer following questions:

  • How can operators meet new European Commission regulation and policy on road safety?
  • How can we obtain the full picture of driver behaviour aside from traditional ECO data, and what’s behind this data?
  • How can operators better manage risk on the roads to protect their fleets, as well as passengers and pedestrians?
  • Why is traditional CCTV no longer enough for effective safety management?
  • What else other than a driver alert AI solution is needed in order to regulate unsafe driver behaviour?
  • What are the primary applications of machine vision and deep learning for road safety?
