Front-Facing AI Dash Cam

The CM31 Front-facing Dash Cam automatically uploads HD video footage to the Samsara Cloud. With live scene analysis and a built-in speaker for driver coaching, the CM31 is purpose-built to reduce high-risk behaviors, lower safety-related costs, and provide deep visibility into fleet operations.

High Definition Video Optimized for Fleets

The CM31 captures clear, smooth, high-definition video footage enabling operators to clearly see events of interest. With high-end 1080p resolution, 30 frame per second capture, a wide-angle 121° lens, and low-light performance optimized for night driving, the CM31 provides exceptional performance in a scalable camera system.

An Intelligent Camera Powered by AI and Computer Vision

The CM31 analyzes the road in real-time, providing advanced visibility into the cause of accidents. Using artificial intelligence on the edge, the CM31 can instantly detect events such as tailgating and rolling through a stop sign.

Fleet-Wide Visibility from the Samsara Cloud

Paired with the VG-series vehicle gateway, the CM31 automatically uploads video clips and still images to the Samsara Cloud, providing zero-touch, centralized visibility into footage from an entire fleet. The CM31's cellular capabilities eliminate the need for manually retrieving memory cards from vehicles or downloading footage from a DVR. Operators can instantly access recent and historical captures from any web browser.

Reduces Accidents and Facilitates Insurance Claims

The CM31 automatically captures and uploads footage immediately before and after sudden acceleration, braking, turning, or collisions. With video evidence of dangerous driving behavior, operators can proactively coach high-risk drivers, improving safety and lowering operating cost. When accidents do happen, video evidence can exonerate drivers and facilitate insurance claim payments.

Built-In Audio Speaker for Voice-Based Safety Coaching

The inward-facing audio speaker provides real-time feedback to promote safe behavior. Drivers who are speeding, engaged in dangerous driving, or not wearing a seat belt will receive voice-based safety warnings.

Affordable and Easy to Use

With advances in imaging technology, encoding, and wireless data networks, Samsara dash cams brings tremendous quality and features at a fraction of the cost of traditional enterprise-class systems. With no complex wiring or configuration, it's also easy to use. Samsara dash cams installs in about ten minutes, and the Samsara Cloud dashboard enables users to access footage without training or IT expertise.
