Intelligent Telematics launches next-generation camera - 9/1/2014
Intelligent Telematics has launched its most sophisticated vehicle camera yet to help fleet operators reduce costs, enhance safety and protect against fraudulent insurance claims.
The IT1000 combines video, telematics and 3/4G technologies to capture and transmit footage of accidents and other harsh driving events in real-time.
Unlike many other vehicle cameras that only record to an in-device SD card, the IT1000 transmits footage of accidents and near misses via a secure 3/4G private network to a web-based interface with real-time email and SMS alerts, so a triggered event can be viewed within minutes of it occurring.
This enables operators to respond quickly to issues and report claims, while insurers receive first notification of loss to minimise any financial impact.
Meanwhile, the camera captures GPS data at 10 times per second, compared to an industry standard of just once per second, to calculate the most accurate impact speed, while the internal 3-Axis G Force sensor including auto calibration enables visibility of driving styles and behaviour.
The next-generation IT1000 device has been developed in partnership with camera specialist Trajet and manufactured at a production facility in Braunschweig, Germany.
Intelligent Telematics says that Trajet is one of the few companies manufacturing vehicle cameras to possess the industry recognised ISO 9001:2008 certification, ensuring high levels of reliability and resilience.
Furthermore, the camera technology is housed in self-contained case making it tamper-proof and resistant to extreme temperatures to minimise failure rates.
Nick Plowman, chief technical officer at Intelligent Telematics, said: “Our latest camera will not only reduce the severity and frequency of vehicle fleet insurance claims by enabling operators to respond quickly and effectively to accidents, but also help modify driving styles and minimise potential risk.
“The IT1000 vehicle camera solution provides a 24-hour monitoring solution that will become an important part of a fleet operators insurance and duty of care strategies.”
