Teletrac Navman UK has developed a new Driver Safety Analytics Module that combines dashcam technology with telematics data.

The new technology forms part of the telematics firm's existing Director system and provides fleet managers with the information they need to reduce road risk and ensure safe driving practices across their fleets.

It features a forward-facing dashboard camera, which continuously records high definition video. Recordings are all accessible via an integrated Event Viewer, which allows fleet managers to replay any dangerous events on a second-by-second basis to monitor driver performance and use as evidence for any insurance claims.

It also includes driver scorecards to track and rank driver improvements over time, and a reporting module to provide overall fleet evaluation.

Stuart Berman, MD at Teletrac Navman, said: “We’re really pleased to be the first in the UK market to launch this fully integrated, safety-first solution.

"It enables fleet managers to really drill down into the data needed to understand how their entire fleet is performing, as they can use both the telematics data and corresponding video footage to give them a complete real-life picture of how their drivers are performing.”

He added: “Not only does the Driver Safety Analytics Module enable businesses to build a safer and more efficient fleet, but it can also positively impact insurance premiums, as it demonstrates to insurers that there are stringent measures in place with relation to minimising risk and enhancing road safety.”
