Video classifications and triggers overview

Your vehicle has a camera and tracking unit (GPS tracker) installed. When the tracker detects a harsh driving event, a video recording of the incident is made.


The video is analyzed and classified by our software and then is available to watch on Reveal or on our dedicated mobile app.


The tracker detects the following harsh driving events:

  • Hard acceleration - if the vehicle accelerates too quickly

  • Harsh cornering - if the vehicle turns a corner at high speed

  • Hard braking - if the vehicle slows down suddenly

Analysis and classification of videos

During the analysis, our software identifies any objects in the video. It can detect objects such as other vehicles, people, and even animals.

The software calculates the chance of collision with an object by measuring the speed and the direction the object is traveling.

The analyzed videos are then classified as follows:

  • Collision - The vehicle may have collided with a person, vehicle, or object.

  • Dangerous - The vehicle may have been involved in a dangerous situation.

  • Harsh Driving - The driving manner was causing undue wear and tear on the vehicle and there was an elevated risk of an accident.

  • Low Risk - The event that triggered the recording was just above the threshold to register as a harsh driving event. The analysis suggests that an incident was unlikely.
