Dash cams have been growing in popularity over the past few years as drivers seek to capture footage of accidents, near-misses, and other incidents on the road. For unfamiliar people, a dash cam is a small camera mounted on a truck or car's dashboard that records footage of the road ahead. However, traditional dash cams have limitations regarding storage and accessing footage. That's where cloud-based dash cams come in. Cloud technology allows data to be stored and accessed remotely over the internet. Together, these technologies are transforming how we drive and increasing safety on the road.
Two of the leading companies in this space are Thinkware and BlackVue. Cloud-based dash cams like BlackVue DR900X-2CH Plus and Thinkware U1000 have various features that traditional dashcams lack. For instance, they offer real-time remote viewing, enabling drivers to view footage from anywhere worldwide, as long as they have an Internet connection. Cloud is especially useful for fleet management and fleet safety. Fleet managers who must keep track of multiple vehicles can easily do so with a Cloud-ready dash cam.
