Mounted to the windshield and using an array of sensors, front-facing cameras monitor the road ahead of the vehicle. The standard front-facing camera provides not only video and event detection, but when linked with online mapping sources, can also provide location data for an owner, fleet manager, or dispatch team.
Many fleets opt for a forward-facing camera solution. Forward-facing dash cams help resolve questions about liability when incidents occur, alert safety managers to harsh driving, and provide opportunities for driver coaching on-road awareness. If a collision occurs in the rear or side of the vehicle, forward-facing dash cams can often still help resolve liability.
