Geotab wins Fleet Safety Product Award at the UK Fleet Champions Awards 2023.
Geotab provides connected transport solutions, using data research and latest technologies to create better vehicle telematics systems. Its new Lytx® Surfsight™ AI-12 camera allows fleet managers to combine video footage with telematics data to better understand driver behaviour.
The smart dash cam uses artificial intelligence (AI) to capture in-cab video footage when a predetermined behaviour is recognised. This could include mobile phone use, distracted driving, or driving without a seatbelt. The smart camera notifies drivers of their risky behaviour to encourage them to self-correct.
Within the Geotab platform, MyGeotab, operators can also request to see the footage related to risky driving behaviours such as harsh braking or acceleration, or other driving incidents. The footage can help fleet managers understand why an incident happened, and also empower them to tackle risk and correct dangerous driving behaviours before an incident happens.
Geotab worked with a small trucking business, with a fleet of 100 vehicles. The cameras gave the fleet operators real-time information about what was happening in and around their vehicles, and MyGeotab allowed them to build a long-term safety record. In two months, the company saved £16,000 in claims costs.
“We’re delighted to have been recognised at this year’s UK Fleet Champions Awards for our continued focus on driving innovation in driver safety,” said David Savage, Vice President, UK & Ireland, Geotab. “With one of the largest data science and AI teams in the industry, processing more than 75 billion data points every day, Geotab is uniquely positioned to provide powerful solutions to help fleet managers maximise safety through cutting-edge technologies.”
The Fleet Safety Product Award, sponsored by Statom Group, was presented to Geotab at the UK Fleet Champions Awards 2023. The award celebrates the product that does the most to improve fleet safety through innovation.
