Utilities company P.N. Daly is rolling out AI dashcams from Inseego across its 250-strong van fleet.

The cameras are designed to use machine vision with AI to detect and help drivers self-correct dangerous or distracted behaviour, using road and driver-facing footage.

P.N. Daly’s drivers will be alerted to any high-risk actions when behind the wheel, while head office and local managers will have access to footage and data of collisions, near misses and other driving events.

P.N. Daly contract manager Nik Darby said: “We are evolving our existing fleet tracking and driver engagement solution to keep us at the forefront of road safety and target continuous improvement in our fleet and driver performance. 

“We selected the AI dashcams to help prevent collisions by alerting the driver in real-time to high-risk or dangerous driving. When an incident does occur, we will still be able to use video to identify the root cause and gain added context, but our primary aim is to stop them happening in the first place.”

Inseego UK managing director Steve Thomas said: “Our AI dashcams help prevent collisions before they occur, so we are seeing strong demand from companies already using our fleet telematics. 

“The two technologies are hugely complementary and provide an effective way of achieving road safety, duty of care, brand protection and insurance cost improvements.”
