Teletrac Navman launches Smart Dashcam

An AI-powered high-definition camera solution that enables real-time interaction with drivers to promote safety has been launched in Australia.

The Teletrac Navman Smart Dashcam uses powerful technology combined with AI-enabled features in a front and driver-facing dash cam.

The Smart Dashcam uses the power of advanced computer technology to capture and analyze footage in real time, identifying events external and inside the vehicle to alert drivers to risky and dangerous situations.

By capturing and analyzing 100% of driving time, the Smart Dashcam provides managers with a complete picture of driver safety and behavior, helping to promote a safer driving culture in transport organizations.

Artificial intelligence combined with telematics data and advanced in-vehicle sensors means the Smart Dashcam can detect and determine when and how driving events are happening in real time.

Driving alerts are then combined with telematics data to keep drivers and back-office staff informed of what matters most.

The Smart Dashcam also includes built-in dashboard and driver coaching functions.

The analysis associated with captured images and driver scores helps promote healthy competition between drivers, provides a structure for rewards and a method of managing on-road behavior while providing greater opportunity for continuous development.

Drivers receive automatic event notifications as they occur, providing real-time visibility into risky behaviors and ongoing performance coaching opportunities to help businesses successfully manage risk.

With accompanying vehicle images and information available to the back office at all times, the Smart Dashcam gives operators the ability to request images and keep drivers safe on the road and protect the business from fraudulent incident claims, while collecting detailed analytics. and scorecard information.

A National Transport Insurance Company report in 2020 found that the number of truck driver fatalities doubled in 2019, with 34% caused by driver fatigue and 82% by driver distraction.

To help businesses avoid falling into those numbers, the Smart Dashcam improves driver performance by measuring events happening on the road against key safety and performance metrics as they happen. occur, such as running over stop signs, driving close together, and other drivers changing lanes nearby.

Combined with managed change across the business, this helps create a culture of safety and development by coaching drivers individually in identified areas of concern and creating opportunities for improvement.

“The Smart Dashcam has given us greater transparency into driver behavior and a greater ability to target bad habits and risky driving and road conditions. The system helps us understand their performance, keeping safety as a priority, while continually training drivers to make the best decisions in their circumstances,” said Sam Ward, COO of JR Stephens.
