Video recordings are uploaded to Reveal when the AI detects unsafe driving behavior.

When the AI detects multiple events happening around the same time, it will analyze and classify based on the most severe incident.

Harsh driving events and thresholds

The vehicle tracker detects the following harsh driving events:

Hard acceleration

  • The vehicle speeds up suddenly (by more than 5 mph (8 km/h) per second).
  • The g-force is above 0.220g for at least 1 second.

Harsh cornering

  • The vehicle makes a harsh turn at speed.
  • The g-force is above 0.4g for at least 2 seconds.

Hard braking

  • The vehicle slows down suddenly (speed decreased by more than 6 mph (9.5 km/h) per second).
  • The g-force is above 0.265g for at least 1 second.

Sudden force

  • The vehicle jolts suddenly (caused by impact with a person, animal, or object, for example).
  • The g-force is above 0.7g for 0.1 second.

Sudden force is only detected by certain device models. Contact Support to find out whether your device can detect it.
