Fleets that use forward-facing cameras to record critical event footage are not seeing much resistance from drivers. Inward-facing cameras, on the other hand, continue to raise privacy concerns despite the potential to mitigate two of the riskiest driver behaviors: distraction and fatigue.
Eyesight Technologies uses facial recognition software to identify distraction and drowsy driving, among other risky behaviors.
Driver distraction caused 2,841 fatalities and 400,000 injuries on U.S. roads in 2018, according to the most recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Drowsy driving is the leading cause in 21% of fatal crashes, according to a 2014 study by AAA. With new advancements in camera vision technology, resistance to driver-facing cameras may be coming to an end.
