SAN DIEGO – DriveCam Inc. has released a new deployment option for its behavior-based risk mitigation solution. The company now offers the next generation in Driver Risk Management, cellular, or Wi-Fi delivery options with a Web-based interface. Combining cellular upload with a Web interface for DriveCam clients simplifies deployment and support, eliminates investment in Wi-Fi infrastructure, and brings driver risk management to fleets, including long-haul trucking and sales and service fleets, that previously were unable to take advantage of daily upload and review due to remote upload locales and lack of frequency with which drivers return to home bases. Reducing launch time also makes the solution more cost effective to implement by way of lessening up-front investment and providing faster return on investment, according to DriveCam. DriveCam’s new cellular-capable video event recorder, which captures and records risky driving behaviors and then sends the event files to DriveCam’s Certified Driving Behavior Analysts for review, was developed with support from Sierra Wireless Professional Services. The solution uses Sierra Wireless embedded modules to provide the cellular connection. The cellular and Web-based platform will be available to DriveCam customers in North America beginning this summer.
