Keep Your Fleet Safety:

A Look Inside MDVR


Have you ever wondered what those black boxes mounted inside buses or trucks do? While they might resemble airplane black boxes, they serve a different purpose. These devices, called MDVR.

What is MDVR?

MDVR, also known as Mobile DVR, stands for mobile digital video recorder. Often mistaken for a car black boxdue to its color, MDVR serves a distinct purpose. Unlike the flight data recorders found in aviation, which are commonly referred to as "black boxes," the term "black boxes" for vehicle typically refers to event data recorder (EDR), while MDVR serves as a supplement of EDR.

MDVR system is a vehicle-mounted monitoring system based on digital video technology, usually composed of hardware devices and related software. Its main function is to monitor the situation inside and outside the vehicle in real-time through cameras, and to record, store, and manage video data.

MDVR are evolving into smarter and more powerful tools, largely due to the integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the capability to expand and connect additional sensors and hardware. This integration enables real-time insights into vehicle location and status.Primarily utilized within commercial vehicle fleets of a certain scale to enhance fleet management efficiency, lower operational costs, and furnish crucial data for accident investigations and driver training programs.

Who Uses MDVR?

MDVR are most commonly used by companies with large fleets of vehicles, such as buses, trucks, taxis, or delivery vans. They offer several benefits:

Improved Safety: By monitoring driver behavior and providing real-time alerts, MDVR can help prevent accidents.

Reduced Costs: Video evidence from MDVR can help resolve accident claims fairly, potentially lowering insurance costs.

Increased Efficiency: Fleet managers can track vehicle location and performance, optimizing routes and schedules.

MDVR Categories

MDVR are categorized based on various factors:

●Storage Type: SD/TF card, HDD/SSD

●Functionality: Ranging from basic video monitoring to advanced AI features such as ADAS, DMS, BSD, APC, FR

●Number of Channels: 2CH, 4CH, 8CH, 10CH, 16CH...

●Communication Methods: Online, Offline
