Virtus Fleet HD Connected Dashcams

These features are all great to have but what do they really mean and how do they help you and your business? Let’s delve into and look at some of these features in more detail.

Technology to Help Control Costs

In the current climate, managing and controlling operating costs are critical in the commercial vehicle operations environment. Driving style and behaviour can account for up to 47% of these costs surrounding:

  • Insurance
  • Fuel
  • Service, maintenance & Repair (SMR)

It, therefore, follows that improving driver behaviour will favourably affect these cost components.

Driver Behaviour

For example, if driver behaviour can be improved so that drivers drive more smoothly, with more awareness and make better driving decisions, it could be expected that insurance premiums would remain constant or fall, fuel consumption would reduce and SMR costs would be minimised.

As an example, assuming each vehicle’s total cost of ownership (TCO) is around £700 per month and a driver population of 1,000, that means a spend on your fleet of £8.4 million per annum of which £3.9 million is affected by driver behaviour.

Utilising the Alarm Alerts on the HD Connected Dashcam covering Harsh Acceleration, Harsh Braking and Harsh Cornering all start to make a contribution to minimising operating cost and TCO.

It’s widely recognised that 95% of all crashes are due to human error, not mechanical failure or acts of God. Some of these crashes are caused by drivers who have not fully mastered the skills of driving and controlling a vehicle and reacting to other road users (their ‘competence to drive), but with experienced and professional drivers, crashes are more often caused by making poor driving decisions because the driver’s attitude to driving, and behaviour while driving, need changing.

Take advantage of the in-cab-facing camera and the optional driver monitoring system (DMS)  to coach your drivers and change hearts and minds.

It’s about coaching them to use their experience to the full and consider different reactions and approaches to everyday experiences.

The HD Connected Dashcam can support your coaching and help improve driver safety in real-time through in-cab coaching in high-risk situations such as:

  • Yawning – Smoking – Distraction
  • Phone call – Eye close too long

and more, helping drivers practice safe driving habits and further reducing risk and potential additional operating costs.

Driver Assistance

Want to further enhance the driver’s judgement by utilising the Advanced Driving Assistance System (ADAS) which can provide the driver with warnings covering:

  • Forward Collision
  • Vehicle Proximity
  • Lane Departure
  • Pedestrian Collision

All contribute to managing and reducing risk by further supporting the driver with valuable alert data so they can make better and more informed decisions.

A Flexible Design

Let’s not forget the quality footage that can be captured and excellent image quality which together with the simple installation and configuration and the variety of optional extras that you can add to create your own bespoke solution using features such as:

  • Automatic event uploads – any ‘event’ (harsh acceleration/braking, impact, speeding, most AI functions) can have up to 60 seconds of video automatically uploaded to the online platform.
  • The above events can also be set to alert a fleet manager via email when they are triggered

The online platform also has extensive automated reporting abilities:

Virtus Fleet HD Connected Dashcam

  • Events/Alerts reports
  • I/O and trigger reports
  • Vehicle stopping and idling reports
  • Telemetry reports
  • Geofence reports

Analytics reports – which offer a graphical representation of the data online

  • Asset state analytics
  • Event/alert analytics
  • Trip analytics
  • Speeding analyticsiver ratings – Score drivers on a per-trip basis with a totally customisable set of metrics.
