Mack Trucks Signs MOU with Lytx
NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO (Oct. 26, 2017) – Mack Trucks announced today it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Lytx®, the leading provider of video services that help enhance the safety, efficiency, productivity and profitability of fleets.
Mack is exploring leveraging Lytx DriveCam®, an in-cab event recorder and coaching system which records internal and external events when an unsafe driving event occurs, such as an abrupt lane change or hard braking, as well as Lytx Video ServicesSM technology, which continuously records external events from multiple camera views and organizes video based upon triggers, such as when a vehicle arm lifts a bin, and by tags, such as customer collection location.
Details regarding the offerings under this agreement have not yet been finalized, but Mack is planning to incorporate the systems into its Mack® LR and TerraPro® refuse models.
“We are pleased to announce an agreement with Lytx,” said David Pardue, vice president of connected vehicles and uptime services for Mack Trucks. “Lytx DriveCam technology can help improve the safety of those on the roadway and help customers with liability management, as well as provide information for driver coaching. Lytx Video Services technology also can help with theft prevention, job site monitoring and driver safety.”
