iOn Vision is a video telematics solution that includes two self-install cameras (one facing the road and the other facing the driver) in your vehicles that will return video files to iOn you can view within the software. This enables you to accurately assess driver behavior, which can help improve driving efficiency and mitigate liabilities. If your assets are equipped with iOn Vision cameras (and your user role has iOn Vision privileges), you can see the captured videos on the Tracking screen; to do so, click an asset's icon and label on the map, which will pull up a pop-up window. Click the iOn Vision tab to view the vehicle's last recorded video events.
iOn Vision cameras are designed to start capturing video in response to certain events, which are triggered either by the asset's LMU (location messaging unit) or by the camera itself. Captured videos are uploaded to iOn at the end of every trip. These are the events that trigger a recording:
|Event Type||Triggered By||Note|
|Lane drift||Camera event|
|Possible crash||LMU||The data is sent to the server to verify whether an accident has occurred. Also, if your organization has purchased the CrashBoxx module, its crash-detection algorithm will send an alert if it determines that there was a true crash.|
|Preset speed violation||LMU|
|SOS panic button||Driver||A panic button is installed on the dashboard as part of the iOn Vision package. If there is an emergency, the driver can press this to alert dispatch/the iOn software that they need help, which will also initiate video capture.|
|Speed limit sign violation||Camera event|
|Stop sign violation||Camera event|
You can further customize what triggers video capture with the following configurations (via the API or with the help of your customer success manager) and add new triggers such as geofence events:
|Distracted driving||You set this to Off or On (the only options).|
|Harsh acceleration threshold||You set the miles (or kilometers) per hour per second value (plus toggle the Off/On option).|
|Harsh braking threshold||You set the miles (or kilometers) per hour per second value (plus toggle the Off/On option).|
|Harsh cornering threshold||You set the miles (or kilometers) per hour per second value (plus toggle the Off/On option).|
|Lane drift||You set this to Off or On (the only options).|
|Maximum speed||You set the maximum miles (or kilometers) per hour value your assets can travel before video recording is triggered (plus toggle the Off/On option).|
|Speed limit sign violation||You set the miles (or kilometers) per hour over the speed limit value (plus toggle the Off/On option).|
|Stop sign violation||You set this to Off or On (the only options).|
|Tailgating||You set this to Off or On (the only options).|
Note: You can configure all of these based on vehicle type (such as heavy, medium, and light duty), including turning them on and off and their individual thresholds.
The default clip length per video is 15 seconds (6 seconds prior to the triggering event and 9 seconds during and after it). This is configurable up to 9 seconds prior and 51 after (for a total maximum clip length of 60 seconds).
