WABCO Holdings Inc. and SmartDrive Systems, Inc. have announced a collaboration to provide safety event video recording through the WABCO OnLane camera system.
This new service offering is focused on capturing several safety related events by combining the SmartDrive SR4 video telematics platform with the WABCO OnLaneAlert lane departure warning system. Fleets will be able to add this service without the need to invest in additional cameras, providing easy access to a video-enabled active safety suite.
“This additional functionality completes our vision of a comprehensive active safety suite by combining our proven active steering and ADAS products with video documentation of critical events that affect driver and fleet safety, liability and operating costs,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO’s president for the Americas. “Our collaboration with SmartDrive enables us to extend our technology leadership by providing a complete, single-source platform that can help fleets achieve an additional level of safety.”
As part of the service, fleets will be able to use the integrated solutions to record a range of safety related events including:
- Lane departure warning;
- Forward collision warning;
- Short following;
- Roll stability;
- Fishtailing; and
- ABS events.
The use of this feature supports fleets on performance and risk monitoring, training/coaching and to assist in exonerating the driver and fleet of liability following a not-at-fault accident, the companies said.
The new SmartDrive system is available for new trucks using OnLaneAlert and as a retrofit option for all trucks in the fleet.
