With the release of 3.6.0 we've added new functionality to get more out of dashcams.
These improvements will provide you with better visibility of what's happening with your fleet.
Dashcam AI features can be activated on a per device basis and vary depending on what events you're looking to have surfaced. At this time, to enable this new functionality on dashcams, you will need to contact support; an upcoming release will provide admin users with this ability under the Dashcam Admin area called 'Camera Settings'.
Depending on your dashcam hardware there will be different steps to complete to ensure your dashcams are correctly installed and configured to support the new AI features. These steps involve ensuring the dashcam is in a suitably mounted location and recording or submitting some information about the position of the dashcam to our system.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) functionality enables dashcams to surface events relating to unsafe driving in the form of a media clip showing what happened.

A basic overview of these features can be found below:
