Safety technology has improved over the past decade or so, becoming more sophisticated, giving fleets more ways to protect drivers and minimize collisions; but technology, such as video data recorders, which just capture a collision as it happens, is still often caught in the accident management web.

But a better technological solution, is using artificial intelligence (AI)-powered visual technology not to record a crash, but to “read” the surroundings and keep the driver alert to any dangers — thus, in many cases, preventing the crash altogether. Most importantly, this approach avoids the human and material costs associated with a collision.
