Driveri Frequently Asked Questions

What is Driveri™?
Driveri™ is an end-to-end IoT system. It is composed of an intelligent mobile video analytics device and a robust cloud-based fleet safety management center. Through the application of artificial intelligence technology, the system identifies and detects images throughout each route and quickly analyzes their impact on the driver’s workday.

By being able to capture the driver’s full-day, managers have more visibility into the challenges they face. The system notifies managers of driving behaviors that may need to be changed, but more importantly identifies when to reward drivers on all the hours, days, weeks of great driving.

What is the purpose of the program?
Driving is one of the riskiest things you do on a daily basis. The main goal of the Driveri™ program is to prevent collisions by identifying and correcting unsafe behaviors before they lead to a collision. The program gives you a holistic view of your driving experience in identifying and correct any bad habits, while focusing on the amount of time you spend driving safely.

Many times, collisions are based on inaccurate eye-witness accounts, often pointing the finger at the vehicle associated with a company. Video provides an unbiased view that can exonerate you if you were in an incident that was not your fault.

What are the benefits for me?
It is capturing every aspect of the driving experience, rather than a sample of time, delivering a full picture of your route. Driveri’s, GreenZone™ monitors daily driving and sends a notification when you have reached a milestone. This allows your manager to recognize great driving with confidence or gives them the ability to intervene if at-risk conditions are present.

Without video, drivers involved in a traffic incident are subject to false claims and often assigned the blame for the incident. With the Driveri device you have an unbiased video showing what happened from both sides and outside the vehicle – many times exonerating the driver.

Since outside video is always being captured, this allows you to request video that may be helpful to identify some of the following:

  • You showed up at a site and could not gain access.
  • Provide feedback about routes or timing of deliveries.
  • Road-rage by another driver.
  • Exonerate you if there is a false claim that you had done something wrong or reverse an inaccurate traffic violation.
  • Capturing low-force collisions, such as mirrors being clipped by passing motorists.

How does the device work?
The device contains a QuadHD video system offering a driver’s perspective with a 360-degree field of view (forward, sides, and if enabled, inside views).

The device is always recording while the vehicle is on; however, only one-minute videos are uploaded if a violation or unsafe driving maneuver is identified and two-minutes videos if a high g-force event is triggered.

The device uses artificial intelligence (AI) and accelerometer-based forces to capture erratic movement to the vehicle, other vehicle maneuvers, markers on the road, signs, speed, and other driving situations. If the device identifies an unsafe maneuver or if you avoided a collision, a video will be created, immediately uploaded, and depending upon your organization’s settings, a real-time alert may notify your manager.

The device can hold anywhere from 27 to 50 hours of driving video and can be requested by an authorized user in your organization. Once the memory is full, the oldest data will start to be overwritten.

Is it on all the time?

  • The outward and side view cameras are recording and saving data when the vehicle is turned on and for ~ 3 minutes after the vehicle has been shut off.
  • The inside view is on when the vehicle is in motion, but is disabled and enters “privacy mode” when the vehicle stops moving for 3 minutes.

Does the use of the Driveri™ program create a new set of driving policies?
No. The Driveri™ program does not create any new policies. It is intended to improve driving safety, compliance with company policies, and recognize safe driving behaviors. Most unsafe driving behaviors and violations are usually included in already existing company policies.

How do I “tag” a video alert to my manager?
On the bottom of the device there are two buttons. If you want to immediately ‘TAG’ a video, press either button. Upon pressing either button, a 1-minute video alert will be ‘TAGGED’ to be preserved. After two minutes, a notification will be automatically populated on the Customer Portal. The video will also appear in your profile on the Driveri dashboard.

Who can view the video?
Only authorized personnel have access to the secure Driveri™ portal.

Is this used to spy or embarrass me?
No. The Driveri™ device cannot be triggered remotely. The purpose is to identify any poor driving habits that need to be changed, to be able to see what happened in a critical situation, and in most cases, Driveri™ creates notifications alerting your manager of good driving.

Is this going to be used to fire me?
The program is not intended to be used to terminate drivers. It is a tool to identify unsafe driving habits as well as identifying the amount of good driving that occurs during your route.

Can I use the system to communicate with dispatch or my supervisor?
No. The system only captures and sends data.
