SAN DIEGO – Lytx, a provider of machine vision and artificial intelligence (MV+AI)-powered video telematics safety and productivity solutions, experienced a record-breaking summer in terms of the video data it captured, processed and delivered to empower drivers and clients.

Throughout June, July and August, Lytx processed more than 15 million driving events captured by its MV+AI-powered DriveCam Event Recorders.

MV+AI triggers in-cab alerts that empower drivers to recognize their own risky driving habits and self-correct in the moment. Lytx clients coached 3 million risky driving events this summer.

Of the 3 million events coached this summer, the following five behaviors were the most prevalent:

Behavior Percent of Events in which
Behavior was Present
Driver Unbelted 28%
Following Distance Under 2 Seconds 26%
Posted Speed Violation 9%
Failed to Stop 8%
Incomplete Stop 7%

"Seatbelt use continues to stand out as both a top behavior fleets are actively looking to address and one that drivers continue to struggle with, despite the inherent dangers and risk of policy violations and citations," said Del Lisk, Lytx's vice president of safety services. "Drivers cited for not wearing a seatbelt are 3.4% more likely to get into a collision and remains a priority for nearly every driver and fleet. Because of this, seatbelt use is one of eight behaviors we proactively issue in-cab alerts for, helping drivers to self-correct in real-time."
