Company uses cameras and AI to track driving

Some Arizona truck drivers might be operating vehicles that have artificial intelligence-based analytics and a camera installed on the vehicle. According to the owner of the company that supplies the technology, even though truck drivers usually do not like this kind of surveillance, the feedback on this has been positive.

Driver safety improved in the first two months of the system's implementation. For example, there are moderate and major stop sign events. The former is when a truck goes through a stop sign at a speed that is under 7 miles per hour while the latter is when the truck goes through faster. Stop sign events decreased by 60 percent after installing the technology.

One reason for the positive response is that the company has put a cap over the camera in the cab so drivers know they are not being watched. The technology also helped in preventing one driver and the company from being blamed for an accident in which the truck driver was not at fault. In that case, a truck hit a car after the car spun out. The car driver's insurance company said the accident was the fault of the truck until the trucking company sent it the video.

Unfortunately, there are also cases in which there are accidents and the truck driver, the company or both are at fault. These could be situations in which the driver suffers from fatigue and falls asleep at the wheel or those in which the truck is poorly maintained, leading to an equipment failure and an accident. Such an accident could leave other road users seriously injured. People who are injured in a trucking accident in which the truck driver is at fault might want to talk to an attorney about how to make sure they get adequate compensation.
