Fleet owners are implementing more strategies to ensure the safety of their assets, and that of passengers while travelling in their vehicles. Surveillance has become an integral part in vehicle management in order to observe what happens inside passenger vehicles, and their external environment.
For this reason, global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions, MiX Telematics has announced an extension to its cab video solutions, which aims to improve the safety of drivers, passengers, as well as the fleet.
In a statement about the release of their new cab video solution, MiX Vision, Catherine Lewis, Executive Vice President of Technology of MiX Telematics said;
“Our MiX Vision solution is rapidly gaining popularity amongst our broad, global customer base, and customers have been asking us to support more cameras for some time now. By investing in two more additional optional cameras, users can now have access to a wider range of footage. This will prove invaluable for those customers who want to enhance driver behaviour, improve safety and reduce costs relating to false allegations.”
The addition of two more cameras, which can be mounted externally, allows customers to monitor and record activity happening around the vehicle for improved driver safety and visual evidence, should it be required.
The two additional cameras are dust- and water-proof, and complement the tamper-proof in-cab unit, which has a road-facing camera and an infrared driver-facing camera. This allows for simultaneous capturing of road- and in-cab video footage linked to a user-defined event.
Extended high-resolution videos are available on demand, offering accurate visual evidence before, during and after an event occurs. This provides full transparency and objectivity to fleet operators when assessing a situation or accusation.
“What makes MiX Vision a compelling product, besides its proven safety features, is that it integrates seamlessly into MiX Telematics’s premium fleet management solution. This means one complete offering, one installation, one contract and one service provider,” explained Lewis.
