GreenRoad Technologies, which provides software services aimed at improving driver behavior and overall fleet performance, has introduced an in-vehicle video system that records dangerous or noteworthy events as they happen – whether on the road or in the vehicle.

“The GreenRoad video solution is unique in its ability to associate captured footage with detailed driving behavior data for individual GreenRoad safety events, providing objective information about how external and behavioral factors each contributed to the outcome,” the company said. “The integrated data gives drivers and managers valuable insight into root causes of risky driving, and helps them develop actionable strategies for safer behavior in similar situations.”

In-vehicle video footage also provides concrete evidence that can protect drivers and fleet-operating businesses from fraudulent claims. This is especially important in the event of no-fault incidents or incidents caused by third parties or external factors, GreenRoad said. The footage allows events to be investigated quickly and thoroughly, and saves management time by enabling details to be sent to insurers immediately.

The in-vehicle video solution is fully integrated into the GreenRoad driver behavior event detection mechanism. An uninterrupted live feed, streamed via mobile connectivity, is available for viewing via the customer’s web portal, GreenRoad Central. In addition, the company said, video recordings that immediately precede and follow any risky driving event are stored for reference. Safety events for which recordings are saved include braking, acceleration, corner handling, lane handling and speeding.

GreenRoad links stored recordings with the safety events that triggered them, so operators and fleet managers never need to waste time wading through mounds of irrelevant footage to find the few seconds of relevant video.

“The insights that result from combining video and sensor-sourced data are highly actionable for managers,” said Roni Raviv, chief technology officer at GreenRoad. “Together with our proven driver learning approach based on feedback loops, they result in tangible return on investment.”
