Wow, what a jerk! In the video thank God the Rivian has some sort of rear video mode??? Don’t know how that works but cool that it captured not a car, but a Walmart employee damaging the EV. Ugh :cry:. Proof that Walmart needs to pay for it. And hopefully fire the idiot.

Rivian has the similar around car cameras as Tesla (Sentry Mode). It has front, rear and side cameras which will record anytime proximity sensors go off. I am hoping Fisker has something similar. Great for those situations.

Yes I actually think all EVs since they all have cameras all around should be able to allow this. And that was totally the workers fault as he was suppose to be in the front guiding them and instead it was probably going down a little hill and they were starting to come apart as the bend in the middle would suggest.

I worked at Walmart before their were motorized cart pushers lol. Made you strong ad legs stronger especially going up hills lol....

However, I think I would take that Video to the Store manager and see if they will cover the damages with their insurance as that should be covered by them as it was caused by an Employee who was working during his shift. So they should assume the Liability for this claim. This is why Cameras in EVs are so important for Safety on and off the road.

I would absolutely pay for something like that if it were an option. It seems easy enough that you could dump recorded data onto a flash drive or send it to your computer or phone via Bluetooth or WiFi when in range of your network. I don’t know anything about it but that is so cool.

I‘m just going to expect that unfortunately the Ocean will not have that feature. After all, the company would surely pump the crap out of that if it included it. Now me, I would take that ANYDAY over the revolving screen which I will never use except to amaze my friends. I always charge at home. I’ve never paid for charging in 8 years.

Teslas did not originally have sentry mode but was added by OTA at some point (I want to say in 2019). The good news is that the Ocean has all the hardware required so even if not initially available, it is something that can be implemented by OTA at some point.

Yes all EVs have the hardware their because the manufacturers use the data and video as evidence for any accidents and safety complaints they get. So it is just an OTA that I think if one would set it as an option when purchasing most people would pay the 100 or 200 to have a sentry type mode activated. I know I would as then no need for dashcam since you have camera on all sides of the vehicle.

From another perspective, i have never used dashcams because they can also be used AGAINST you, especially for those of us who live life by Sammy Hagar’s credo…😁
But 100% in favor of turning on sentry mode while parked- especially if we can program some loud sinister sounding dog to bark and growl when someone gets too close.

So dont submit the video as evidence if it incriminated you. That's why it's a private video recording lol. Only use if it favors you.

well duh, why didn’t I think of that? 🙄
If you have a camera, it can be subpoenaed by the court or a lawyer- so in essence , unless you keep your system turned off, it might bite you.

I can't imagine the frustration with seeing this guy smash up your car. My son just took a rock and wanted to see what it would do to the side of our new Sienna - needless to say we now have a big scratch on it....

If the dod and ss can delete their files, so can you :)

JK . I just re-installed my camera this week after seeing some pretty crazy driving and almost getting in to an accident.
