New connected vehicle technology for fleets to debut at ITT Hub
New connected vehicle technology that can reduce fleet accidents and improve driver behaviour is launching at this week’s ITT Hub event.
Developed by Spillard Safety Systems on the back of a £750,000 investment, the Spillard Live solution provides an intuitive cloud-based platform that captures and streams real-time video and analytics simultaneously from multiple cameras fitted to lorries, vans and commercial vehicles.
It records information, such as vehicle location, speed, impact force and driving style, on a UK-secured system with full GDPR compliance, giving companies the opportunity to monitor fleet/driver behaviour and support training to help prevent accidents.
“This new development has been 24 months in the making and brings together all of the lessons we’ve learned from our existing platform to give transport firms an optimised solution for managing their fleets,” explained Pete Spillard, managing director at Spillard Safety Systems.
“Most of our rivals use a Chinese-developed platform and white-label it… That has been ok up until now. However, we wanted to have complete control over the system, its capabilities and the data, so made the sizable investment to create Spillard Live.”
He continued: “This means we have the opportunity to continually add new features to the system and, importantly, customers can have complete faith in the security of the information being generated.”
Thousands of customer vehicles have already migrated over to the new Spillard Live platform and initial feedback has been extremely positive.
Now, the Wolverhampton-based company is setting its sights on doubling the number of users in the sector to more than 20,000 by the end of the year.
Pete Spillard added: “It’s ambitious, but judging by our pipeline of orders, it is very achievable.
“The technology is being used by companies with a few vehicles right up to those with hundreds, including major transport companies such as DHL, Lomas Distribution and A.F. Blakemore (SPAR).”
In addition to the live footage, Spillard Live also offers prompts alerts, vehicle radar system, route history, vehicle tracking and smart maintenance.
Fleets wishing to find out more in-depth details about Spillard Live can see the solution at this week’s ITT Hub event.
Taking place on 30 June and 1 July 2021 at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, the event combines test drives with new vehicle unveilings, an extensive Government Hub, Logistics UK’s Future Logistics Conference and the Autonomous and Last-Mile Electric Hub – in total, the event will showcase more than 150 exhibitors.
