3 Ways Video Event Recording Will Help Your Fleet Drivers
Video telematics is the new vision of safety, and we have a video solution that helps improve driver behavior without taking a toll on your budget. Here are the 3 key benefits that your drivers and fleet managers will derive from it.
Gamifying the experience
Video event recording is a powerful tool for fleet safety and coaching, allowing your fleet drivers to manage their own performance on the road to improve their safety scores.
Yet implementing new technologies can be daunting and may be met with resistance from drivers. More tracking gadgets for me while I’m driving? C’mon!
We get that. This is why we developed a new video recording solution, Vision, that is not only a big value-add to your fleet, but is also focused on a great driver experience.
We’re putting a lot of energy towards a video solution that is not only helpful but also a little bit fun to use.
You’ve probably heard of or used Fitbit bracelets or step counting apps that stir some healthy competition with yourself. Can I make more steps today? Should I use the stairs instead of the escalator? Can I go that extra mile?
This drive to self-betterment can even be a little bit addictive.
A similar concept is applied to our Vision. It will stimulate that healthy motivation to outcompete yourself in your driving habits to get a good score.
Drivers will be able to see their scores on a dedicated dashboard in the app according to the specific driving instances – e.g. rolling stops, tailgating, harsh acceleration or breaking – and play a short video recording to see what happened on the road. Did you miss that speed limit sign by accident?
And the satisfaction of seeing those scores improve, appearing on a Leader Scoreboard, might be enough of a good incentive to keep those wheels rolling on the safe side!
Vision is easy and safe to use while driving. It will not be displaying anything when recording in order to avoid distracting drivers from keeping their eyes on the road.
You will get live voice feedback to learn where your driving patterns might need some work.
The dash-mounted camera has state-of-the-art sensors that detect all the road signage or lane departure instances at high speeds. It uses optical detection, Artificial Intelligence (AI) learning, and analytics that compare the vehicle’s driving performance against posted road signs and safety regulations.
Once a driving violation is detected, it will trigger the video recording. Otherwise, the camera is on stand-by.
When the trip is finished, both the driver and fleet manager will be able to review video events: the driver – in the Vision app, and the manager – in their Fleet Complete online account.
This is a big one.
It’s always better one time to see it than ten times to hear it.
Vision is a great driver-coaching tool for real-time, everyday on-road safety. With video driving behavior tracking, drivers can proactively manage their own on-road performance, and fleet managers know that drivers have a tool to keep an eye on their mistakes.
With Vision’s simple, contextual video event recording, fleet managers won’t have to review hours of footage. Every event produces a few seconds of video recording – enough to review what happened just before, during, and right after the event.
This is a very effective tool for your fleet’s safety program.
