As technology has rapidly progressed, so too has the technology behind commercial vehicle dash cams, providing a robust safeguard for vehicle safety. This article will delve into the application and evolution of commercial vehicle dash cams within safety solutions, from both historical and recent technological advancement perspectives.

In the early stages, the functionality of commercial vehicle dash cams was relatively basic, primarily serving as evidence in the event of accidents and for recording driving conditions. Back then, devices typically only offered low-resolution video recording, with less than ideal performance in nighttime or adverse weather conditions. However, with continuous technological advancements, dash cams began to feature higher image clarity, wider recording angles, and more stable recording capabilities.

Entering the 21st century, with the rise of technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, and cloud computing, the functionality of commercial vehicle dash cams rapidly expanded. Modern dash cams not only provide high-definition video recordings but also integrate advanced features such as ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), DMS (Driver Monitoring Systems), and BSD (Blind Spot Detection) systems. The combination of these technologies significantly enhances the safety of commercial vehicles during operation, effectively preventing accidents.

The camera displays

For example, ADAS can recognize vehicles, pedestrians, and road signs ahead through images captured by dash cams, timely alerting drivers to take evasive actions. DMS assesses drivers’ facial expressions and eye movements to detect fatigue or distracted driving behaviors, issuing warnings accordingly. BSD systems detect other vehicles in the vehicle’s blind spots, reducing the risk of accidents caused by blind spots.
