Today’s Pickup: Lytx introduces driver identification technology

Lytx has introduced a new technology that allows for easy matching of drivers to vehicles, giving fleet managers more insight into driver identification.

Lytx Badge requires no additional hardware and utilizes a QR code to assign drivers to vehicles. Drivers, or technicians, simply display their driver identification or QR code on their phone to the Lytx DriveCam event recorder, which scans the ID or code and once identified, sets up the driver for driving. The Lytx Badge driver identification feature works with the DriveCam SF300 device…

Once scanned, a driver’s name along with vehicle data is recorded, giving fleet managers visibility into both worker and vehicle data including a driver’s hours for each day, week and month; how much time the vehicle is moving during each shift; and how much idle time occurs, Lytx said.
