GPS Trackit has launched VidFleet, a connected video telematics system to deliver real-time in-cab audible alerts with clear picture.
VidFleet also allows for a 360-degree view of the road, driver and cabin. The system enables safer driving and greater fleet operations awareness for drivers.
According to a study on Driver Distraction in Commercial Vehicle Operations by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, text messaging raises a driver’s risk of crashing by 23 times. The size of awards from a verdict in crash cases increased 51.7% annually, according to a 2019 study by the American Transportation Research Institute.
"We see VidFleet and our entire suite of prevention and protection capabilities as transforming road safety. VidFleet will improve driver behavior, decrease distracted driving and provide superior video for documentation and analysis," said Ed Montes, GPS Trackit's CEO. "As a long-time leader in the IoT and telematics industries, we want to provide high value solutions to our customer base of hundreds of thousands of vehicles."
GPS Trackit offers VidFleet One and VidFleet AI+, which are both available now.
VidFleet AI+ offers 30x per second data capture and a 128 GB SD card.
"Our use of edge processing allows for data samples to be taken thirty times every second, using all available video," states Michael Gill, GPS Trackit's CTO. "As a result, the real-time audible voice alerts and coaching can help to improve driver behavior dramatically."
