Experts from across the fleet safety landscape will gather tomorrow to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by the latest vehicle technologies.
Brake is hosting an invitation-only roundtable event on vehicle technology that aims to capture the voice of the wider fleet industry on a rapidly-developing element of fleet safety.
The event, sponsored by MiX Telematics, will begin at 10am on Tuesday 5 October, with minutes and a factsheet to be circulated in the near future.
It is part of a programme of virtual roundtable events on different fleet safety topics that has been broadcast by Global Fleet Champions throughout 2021.
Vehicle technology is evolving at a rapid pace, and there is an increasing number of systems available that aim to improve vehicle and driver safety.
While technology offers many benefits, it can also present challenges to fleet managers; however, with careful choice and effective integration with a wider risk management strategy, vehicle technology can help managers to reduce risk across fleets.
Attendees at the roundtable will discuss:
- Vehicle technologies that can improve safety by preventing crashes and reducing the risk of serious injury if a crash occurs
- Electronic recording systems (telematics)
- The move towards autonomy – potential benefits and challenges
- How to ensure fleets have robust policies for vehicle procurement and maintenance
- What a best practice policy for using vehicle technology to manage road risk should include
- How to ensure compliance with a best practice policy for using vehicle technology to manage road risk
Richard Adams, sales director at MiX Telematics Europe said: “We are delighted to be the sponsor of the Brake Vehicle Technology roundtable. This will be an informative and enjoyable debate between several industry experts focussing on how technology can improve vehicle and driver safety. MiX Telematics have worked with Brake for many years and are proud to be involved in raising awareness to such critically important issues.”
Scott Williams, head of programme delivery at Brake, the road safety charity, said: “We’re excited to be hosting this roundtable as vehicle technology is an area of such great opportunity for improving the safety of roads for everyone. We hope all attendees find it informative, and that everyone can benefit from the resources that Global Fleet Champions will produce based on the event.”
