This section describes dashcam features that have been improved.

SUR-1590 Enabled support of auxiliary camera local recording

To improve the reliability of the recording, the AI-12 dashcam now supports local recordings of the auxiliary cameras. If the auxiliary cameras have SD cards inserted, they record the video locally. The fleet managers can then copy the videos to the AI-12 dashcam for access from the Surfsight® cloud.  

SUR-1549 Simplified options for in-cabin recording and alerts

Surfsight® has improved in-cabin recording and alerts with the following updates:

  • If In-Cabin Recording is turned off and the Distracted Driver feature is turned on, then the driver-facing camera:

    • doesn't provide live streaming

    • doesn't upload video or snapshots to the cloud

    • doesn't record anything to the SD 

    • provides Distracted Driver in-cabin visual and audio alerts

    • sends Distracted Driver event details (without video or snapshot) to the cloud 

  • When both In-Cabin Recording and Distracted Driver are turned off, then the driver-facing camera doesn't operate.

  • If the In-Cabin Recording is turned on, then it's fully enabled, independent of the Distracted Driver function.

  • The Driver Camera On/Off setting option has been removed.

SUR-2160 Updated watermark fonts and position

The display was improved as follows:

  • The text position in the text overlay on the video recordings is now centered.
