Mack Trucks announced Thursday that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Lytx, a provider of video services that help enhance the safety, efficiency, productivity and profitability of fleets.

The terms of the agreement were not disclosed but Mack says it is exploring the Lytx DriveCam, an in-cab camera system which records internal and external events when an abrupt lane change or hard braking occurs, as well as Lytx Video Services Technology, which continuously records external events regardless of a trigger situation.

“Lytx DriveCam technology can help improve the safety of those on the roadway, as well as inform fleets of drivers that may need some coaching. Lytx Video Services Technology also can help with theft prevention, job site monitoring and driver safety,” says David Pardue, vice president of connected vehicles and uptime services for Mack Trucks

Details regarding the offerings under this agreement have not yet been established, but Mack is planning to incorporate the systems into its Mack LR and TerraPro refuse models.
