HOUSTON, Texas — Safety Vision, LLC, a manufacturer of mobile video surveillance and collision avoidance systems, is partnering with NVision, a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), to offer a powerful suite of fleet and driver performance solutions for today’s fleet manager. The complete SafetyTrax AVL solution is a web-based system hosted by Safety Vision that integrates a vehicle’s computerized diagnostics with video surveillance, global positioning systems (GPS) and driver fitness monitoring using the new SafetyTrax DDM camera with the added functionality of NVision’s tire pressure monitoring.
It’s a feature-rich solution that will provide fleet owners with a tangible return on investment through fuel savings, extended tire life, reduced downtime, and improved driver performance and safety.
Made possible through cellular and satellite technology, SafetyTrax AVL gives fleet owners 24/7 online access to real-time vehicle data including vehicle identification, start/stop times and durations, speed, location, tire pressure, mechanical failures and more. Dispatch offices can receive instant alerts and vehicle location every minute as needed on a variety of problems and download data for up to one year.
The NVision TPMS gives better visibility into tire performance and improved safety of cargo and vehicle during transit. And the driver fitness tool, Safety Trax DDM warns the driver with real time audible alerts when symptoms of weariness or distracted driving are recognized. DDM monitors the state of a driver’s wakefulness using PERCLOS (Percent Eyelid Closure) data. The camera sounds an alarm when unsafe patterns are detected, maintaining alertness and preventing potential accidents.
“The health issues and stress that a professional driver experiences on the road are getting a lot of attention from the industry,” says Terry Leiby, Director of SafetyTrax. “Statistics say that 20,000 injuries and 750 deaths can be attributed annually to driver fatigue or road hazards like distraction, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Our product is designed to be a proactive signal to aid driver safety and keep fleet owners out of court, built on our nearly two decades of experience and engineering expertise in mobile video and fleet automation systems.”
