SmartDrive raises bar for video safety

SmartDrive Systems announced the latest release of its video-analytics platform and safety program. The new release sets a high standard for video safety programs with first-of-their-kind enhancements to video capture and delivery, video coaching process, custom policy configurations and driver performance analytics.

Key enhancements of the latest release include:

•Extends capabilities that pair exception-based recording with optional DVR-like recording functionality, providing full situational context to fleets.

•Expands recording duration and provides fleets the option to select from 100 hours (approximately eight days) to 200 hours (approximately 16 days) of additional video context based on fleet needs.

•Ensures video will not be overwritten, which is critical for fleets that do not return to home locations frequently or are required to maintain more video by regulations.

•Protects fleets in low-impact collisions like side-swipes and backing accidents, and no-impact incidents including security and theft situations, compliance audits, worker compensation claims and delivery verification.

•Usability enhancements optimize coaching and time spent while maximizing the impact of coaching sessions.

•Integrated contextual performance metrics throughout the coaching workflow puts KPIs front and center for coaches.

•Driver scorecards with trended performance data, coaching history, and peer benchmarking  pinpoint areas for improvement and facilitate productive coaching sessions.

•“Prep Mode” provides an easy-to-use workflow to facilitate coaching preparation, enabling  coaches to add notes for review by colleagues if necessary or give “kudos” for outstanding driving performance.

•Skills-based or event-based coaching options provide the flexibility to individualize sessions to the needs of the coach or driver.

•Mobile support enables coaches to view video away from their desk.

•Shopping cart functionality allows fleets to order extended recording or on-demand video when needed or schedule in advance, track the order and receive email status updates.

•Map view of events makes it easy to pinpoint and select appropriate order timeframes.

•Up to 24 hours of video can be ordered, providing fleets flexibility to support collision investigations, worker compensation or compliance issues, virtual ride-alongs or security-related incidents.
