Once the AI Dashcam is installed properly, it will begin recording. However, in order for an AI-based detection for behaviors like close following to work, your camera needs to go through a quick and simple calibration process. This process helps the camera learn where exactly it is mounted on the vehicle, so that it can properly detect lanes, other vehicles, and unsafe driving behavior.
Steps: Setting up AI Dashcam
1. Once the AI Dashcam is installed properly, the driver has to drive for 30 minutes on a road with the following conditions:
- The road should be a highway (>35 mph) with at least 3 lanes in each direction
- The road should be straight (no curves, slopes etc.)
- The road surface should be relatively flat
- The road should have easily visible lane lines
2. Once the camera has gathered sufficient data (roughly 30 minutes of driving), it will automatically be calibrated and AI detection features (such as close following) will begin functioning.
3. Once this process has been carried out successfully, the AI Dashcam will be fully operational for AI features. To confirm this, open the vehicle’s page on the Driver Dashboard and visit the Dashcam tab to check the connection status at the bottom.
You can visit the Manage Dashcam section of the Driver App or the Dashcams tab in Safety Hub on the Motive Driver Dashboard to check on the calibration status of the AI Dashcam.
Here are a few example of ideal & non-ideal driving scenarios that can help your camera initialize faster:
a) This is an ideal scenario as lane lines are visible on the flat highway.
b) Your AI Dashcam may not calibrate on a road like this. The number of lanes are insufficient and not clearly visible.
