Transport America to deploy Lytx DriveCam fleetwide after trial test

Based on driver feedback, Falldin says the company is using the forward camera but is not activating the inward, driver facing camera when capturing video footage of critical events.

West Side Transport DOES NOT HAVE cameras. They tried them and felt that the monitoring costs were excessive. They have no plans to use them.

Carroll Fulmer have driver facing cameras & monitor drivers all day. Safety is always watching you.

They would need an office that looks like a television studio to do that. You would need walls of monitors and a whole lot of manpower, not to mention about $10 million dollars a year in satellite bandwidth to keep the continuous feeds coming in.

Normally these cameras are monitored by outside companies who get alerts sent by the truck's computer to notify them of a possible incident.

How do you know they're monitoring everyone all the time?

This is second hand my buddy told me they will call driver's in for a safety review. He said they had him on camera ****ing in a bottle & said he's a distracted driver. Like I said this is second hand. When he cover up the camera they call him and tell him his camera is covered.

I see.

The way these systems work is that the camera will be triggered by certain events. It could be something like hard braking or swerving that will trigger it. It could be covering up the lens while the truck is moving. But something will trigger the camera to save the recording. When the camera is triggered there will be someone watching the film to see what happened.

So they run continuously but they're not being monitored constantly. Some sort of event will trigger the camera to save the recording and will notify the people watching the videos that there is an event to be monitored.

The in cab cameras record video.

Does anyone know if these cameras record audio? If they do, what carriers have cameras that record both video and audio?

Yes, they catch the audio, too. F you have a camera on board, trip it for a 20 second recording. That piece will show up in your driver portal (at least at Swift). Then you can check out what the camera sees and hears.

System Transport has outward facing cameras. The camera facing inward is blocked.
