New fleet safety reporting combines driver behaviour data and vehicle camera footage

Available for both car and van fleets, the Safety League Table enables operators to monitor the best and worst performing drivers within their fleet.

The technology uses GPS, accelerometer and video data taken from Intelligent Telematic’s IT1000 3G vehicle camera to rank drivers using a points-based system. This is supported by a range of up to 15 key driving parameters that cover all aspects of speeding, acceleration, braking, cornering and idling. In particular, this includes unique percentage overspeed, which calculates the proportion of time spent travelling above road designated speed limits.

A configurable dashboard also provides a high level overview of important fleet and driver information, with the ability to drill down to the required vehicle data and video footage. Meanwhile, a graphical and tabular reporting capability enables companies to analyse historical fleet data over a period of time to identify operational safety and efficiency trends. This can be used to not only track performance, but also measure the effectiveness of any driver training, reward and incentive initiatives.

“This latest development adds a new dimension to driver behaviour monitoring, because it provides insight beyond simply logging driving events,” said Nick Plowman, CTO of Intelligent Telematics. “Fleet operators can find out exactly why and how something is occurring by accessing the associated video clips, and this added understanding, will enable them to implement or support targeted driver performance and training programmes to achieve improved levels of safety and efficiency. By reducing the number of harsh events occurring within a fleet, it becomes possible to minimise the chances of that future accident happening.”
