    Introduction

    Motive’s AI dashcams can trigger safety behaviors and in-cab alerts that help drivers as well as safety managers in analyzing driving performance and ensuring drivers drive safely on the road

     

    How safety behavior triggers Help You

    Safety managers can view generated events in the safety hub and coach drivers based on their performance. Motive also provides the ability to automatically mark events as coachable based on the severity of the event in question.

     

    Safety Behavior Triggers Overview

    • Event Generation
    • In-cab Alerts

     

    Event Generation

    A safety event is displayed in the Safety Hub under the  ‘Events’ tab.

     

    In-cab Alerts

    Audio & visual alerts are played in-cab for the driver associated with the safety event.

     

    Alert duration and cadence 

    Event Type Alert LED Duration Audio Cadence
    Coachable Behaviour Speeding 5 seconds - triggered every 5 minutes Every 5 minutes 
    Coachable Behaviour Close Following Persistent - until fixed Every 30 seconds 
    Coachable Behaviour Cell Phone Usage Persistent - until fixed Every 30 seconds 
    Coachable Behaviour Distraction Persistent - until fixed Every 30 seconds 
    Coachable Behaviour Stop Sign Violation Persistent - until fixed Every 30 seconds 

     

    Safety Event Triggers Definition

    The following table shows different parameters that generate a safety event against the parameters that generate an in-cab alert for the driver.

    Safety Event  Trigger What is it detecting? Event Generation trigger definition In-Cab Alert definition Supported Dashcam Models
    Close following Tailgating other vehicles with a close following distance Following distance is 0.7s maintained for at least 10s above 35 mph Following distance is 0.7s maintained for at least 10s above 35 mph DC-53, DC-54
    Cell Phone Detection Using, holding or looking down at a cell phone while driving (not in a holder) Using a phone for at least 5s above 25 mph Using a phone for at least 5s above 25 mph DC-54
    Seatbelt violation Seatbelt is not worn over properly over the shoulder Seatbelt is unbuckled for at least 5s above 25mph Seatbelt is unbuckled for at least 15s above 10mph DC-54
    Distraction Driver is not looking straight (down) due to distraction from, food/drink, drowsiness or something else (not cell phones) Looking down for at least 5s above 10mph Looking down for at least 5s above 10mph DC-54
    Stop Sign Violation Rolling stop at stop signs (a full stop is 3s at 0 mph) and is a ticketable traffic violation. When approaching a stop sign, we will trigger an event if speed doesn’t go below 6mph within 7s of stop sign being invisible to camera When approaching a stop sign, we will trigger an event if speed doesn’t go below 6mph within 7s of stop sign being invisible to camera DC-53, DC-54
    Harsh driving (Hard brakes, hard accelerations & hard corners) A sudden change in the direction or speed of a vehicle where more force than normal is applied to the vehicle's brake/ accelerator system or a turn occurs too fast. Based on a set threshold between 6.1 mph/s and 10.1 mph/s Based on a set threshold between 6.1 mph/s and 10.1 mph/s DC-33, DC-34, DC-53, DC-54
    Collision Vehicle collides into another moving or stationary vehicle, object or person / animal Using a combination of harsh event detection thresholds (brakes, corner, accelerations) or vehicle telematics signals such as airbag deployment, yaw control, rollover protection or crash notification. N/A DC-33, DC-34, DC-53, DC-54
