Setting up the VIA Fleet Cloud Management Portal in Five Easy Steps

fleet cloud management portal

Cloud-connected dash cams like the VIA Mobile360 D700 enable centralized data collection and provide a comprehensive overview of the status of a vehicle fleet from any location with an internet connection. This connectedness gives fleet managers the tools they need to monitor vehicles and drivers on the road, as well as the data to analyze routes and driver behavior. The combination of these tools allows fleet managers to deploy their vehicles more efficiently, improve safety, and reduce liability.

One of the main goals of the VIA Fleet Cloud Management Portal is to make capturing, compiling, and accessing mission-critical vehicle and driver data generated by the D700 as convenient and fast as possible. Its features include live tracking of both vehicles and drivers, a dashboard that displays key fleet, vehicle, and driver statistics, and trip histories of vehicles and drivers.

Combating distracted driving with the VIA Mobile360 D700 AI Dash Cam

Driver Monitoring System

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents. Even with the best of intentions, not everyone is immune to the siren call of their smart phone during a long and boring drive or the temptation of a quick snack to keep their energy levels up. After all, nothing much generally happens in the space of a few seconds – unless of course a car unexpectedly cuts in front of the vehicle or a pedestrian steps out onto the road. Then all hell can break loose with potential consequences that can last a lifetime for both the driver and the victims.

Preventing accidents caused by inattentive or careless drivers is of particular concern to fleet managers with multiple vehicles carrying valuable cargoes operating to demanding schedules in their charge – not just because of the risk to life and limb but also the potential insurance and repair costs that may be incurred.

notes from the field: taking the AI upgrade path

AI upgrade path

The single most important benefit of building an AI-enabled system is that you can upgrade its functionality without having to make any modifications to the hardware.

As we recently demonstrated with the VIA Mobile360 AI dash cam, such upgrades can be a lot more substantial than minor software tweaks and bug fixes. In response to customer feedback, we added three major features to the device to boost driver safety and provide fleet managers with deeper insights into vehicle usage.

notes from the field: setting up for Work Truck Show 2020

Work Truck Show 2020

Greetings from a grey but very friendly Indianapolis. The night receptionist at my hotel gave me such an irrepressible smile when I went down to the lobby at four o’clock this morning that I had no idea how to reciprocate it.

Today, we’ll be setting up the VIA booth for Work Truck Show 2020. Although the event kicks off today with a series of keynotes and workshops, the exhibition itself doesn’t begin until tomorrow. Our booth is located at Level 1, #5507, if you would like to stop by. Continue reading notes from the field: setting up for Work Truck Show 2020

No big surprise that there was a subdued atmosphere at the opening of Embedded World 2020 given the number of cancellations by key vendors. Fortunately, the mood lightened during the day as more and more visitors arrived.

While the show wasn’t as busy as in previous years, we had a steady stream of customers come to the VIA booth. For all the benefits of online communication, it still doesn’t fully replace old-fashioned face-face interactions. There’s no better way of understanding customer needs and building long-term relationships. Continue reading notes from the field: VIA at Embedded World 2020

Notes from the field: VIA at ISC East 2019

ISC East 2019

Last week VIA returned to New York for one of the most important events on our calendar – International Security Conference East (ISC East). As a showcase for the latest advances in security technology, ISC East is the place to be for the latest trends in video monitoring and access control, smart home, smart city, and other security solutions. It was a great opportunity for us to share our own latest cutting-edge security solutions and have conversations with our customers other leading industry players.

The highlight of the VIA booth was our live VIA Smart Access Control AI System demo, which gave visitors the opportunity to see our facial recognition algorithms hard at work, add themselves to the whitelist or blacklist, and watch our solution easily differentiate new friends from foes. Managing security checkpoints and tracking visitors can be a challenge for any team, and our demo showed just how easy this can be when you let the technology handle the mundane work.
