For nearly a decade, our focus has been on helping our customers proactively manage safety with artificial intelligence (AI) that really works. That’s why we built the Motive AI Dashcam, which detects unsafe driving behavior with unrivaled accuracy and alerts drivers in real time through state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms and a leading-edge AI processor. 

We see the positive impact in the latest 2023 safety results from the Motive platform. Compared to all active fleets, fleets with Motive AI Dashcams across the majority of their vehicles, and that frequently coach drivers, experienced up to 80% fewer accidents. These fleets had an average of 50% fewer accidents with the help of coaching. These are severe crashes reported by the FMCSA and involve towaways, injuries, or fatalities. The 600 active fleets included in the study covered nearly 100K drivers.

But we’re always focused on getting better. We combine a data-driven process for collecting, labeling, and improving AI model performance with best-in-class hardware to help keep the roads safer for everyone. Let’s take a closer look at how our newest AI capabilities take safety performance to the next level.

Advanced collision detection 

Safety managers need to know quickly when accidents occur so they can get onsite help for their drivers and kick off the insurance claims process. Real-time accident alerts with video help managers take immediate action, minimize loss, and protect drivers. They can also forward footage of the incident to drivers that can provide on-the-spot exoneration and evidence in the case of litigation.

Our collision model proactively catches over 99% of the highest severity collisions, such as rollovers and jack-knifes, while swiftly identifying minor events like fender benders and object hits. New telematics data like rollover protection, airbag deployment, and other crash indicators also improve the accuracy of collision detection.

HD video is uploaded within 90 seconds of an accident, and managers receive an alert with the video and detailed collision report. Accurately detecting collisions with supporting video is important, since false positives can be disruptive and costly to commercial fleets. Our AI model is trained on over 10,000 collisions and regularly updated with insights from support requests and recalled footage.


Stop sign violation

Rolling stops are frequently ticketed and are one of the leading causes of fatal fleet accidents on local roads, endangering pedestrians, bicyclists, and other vehicles. Drivers with a violation for failure to obey traffic signs are 68% more likely to have a future crash.

When approaching a stop sign, the AI Dashcam detects and alerts the driver when they don’t reduce their speed below 6 mph within 7 seconds of the stop sign disappearing from view.


Driver distraction

According to the NHTSA, distracted driving claimed 3,142 lives in 2020. Paying attention to the road is crucial to staying safe.

The AI Dashcam detects and alerts the driver when they continuously look down for more than 5 seconds while driving faster than 10 mph. They might be looking down due to drowsiness, cell phone use, smoking, eating, or general inattentiveness.


Unsafe lane change

A prior conviction for an unsafe lane change increases the likelihood of a fleet accident by 80% and adds up to 5 points to your CSA score after a violation.

The AI Dashcam detects and alerts the driver when they unsafely switch lanes above 30 mph while tailgating before and/or after the lane change.


Camera obstruction

The AI Dashcam requires a clear view of the road and driver to avoid missing any unsafe driving events. An obstructed camera can also miss out on critical exoneration evidence.

The AI Dashcam instantly detects when the camera is obstructed at least 60-80% on the road- or driver-facing lenses and alerts drivers and managers to resolve the issue and ensure proper camera visibility.


With the help of AI technology, we hope to see fewer accidents, safer roads, and more lives saved. Get a tour to learn more about the AI Dashcam today.
