Samsara’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) features are now available for CM3x dash camera customers. You can activate the following features in beta mode:
Forward Collision Warning (CM31, CM32)
- You will get a Forward Collision Warning (FCW) if Samsara's AI Dash Cams detect when a vehicle is on a collision course with the vehicle directly ahead of it.
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW) is activated during daytime hours only and triggers alerts >25 mph to help reduce false positives at slow speeds.
- If activated, you will start to get 10-second clips of FCW events in your Safety Inbox. You can also turn on optional in-cab alerts. Learn how to do so here.
- Current known limitations of the beta include:
- In-cab alerts are slightly delayed from the moment of the FCW trigger
- FCW does not capture collision events from the side or rear of the vehicle
- It cannot detect head-on collisions due to the relative speed being too high
Unsafe Following Distance (CM31, CM32)
- Samsara AI Dash Cams detect unsafe following distance at speeds >45 mph
- Unsafe Following Distance alerts will be triggered if the camera detects the following distance of 1 second or less for a duration of 15 seconds
- If activated, you will start to get 10-second clips of Unsafe Following Distance events in your Safety Inbox. Learn to turn on in-cab alerts here.
Before you can enable these outward camera ADAS features, you will need to configure the lane positions of your vehicles. Click on “Configure Lane Positions” and follow the directions listed here.
Distracted Driving Detection (CM32 only)
- Samsara's AI Dash Cams detect when a driver’s natural head position is outside their normal range of motion
- Distracted driving is triggered when the dash camera detects a dip in the head position while the vehicle speed is >25 mph.
- If activated, you will start to get 5-second clips of distracted driving events in your Safety Inbox. You can also turn on in-cab alerts. Learn more.
