SmartWitness and Corcra team up to offer integrated telematics and camera technology solution for fleets
The partnership sees the new SmartWitness forward-facing KP1 camera system integrated into the Corcra platform to offer a 'unique solution' for fleet managers of cars and commercial vehicles.
The new product has been developed with Corcra's sister company, telematics specialists NIBC.
The joint offering offer integrated telematics and driver behaviour, and live tachograph data with in-cab camera technology.
This not only provides a reduction in insurance premiums and protection against 'crash for cash' schemes and not at fault claims, but it allows fleets to manage the footage remotely.
The video filmed through the SmartWitness KP1 is court admissible evidence, and can help protect drivers from the burden of pre-meditated staged accidents, false or exaggerated whiplash claims, conflicting reports of actual events, and driving offence allegations.
The SmartWitness KP1 fully integrates with the Corcra telematics portal and offers 30-frame per second video clips of accidents, near misses and instant notifications shown on the portal in seconds.
The camera captures footage of what happens before, during and after an accident and can record not only the driver's view of the road but any other angle customers require by linking with a second camera. It also importantly reports on the impact force of the accident and the driving style.
SmartWitness managing director Craig Lamont said: “Corcra and SmartWitness have worked together to create an industry leading product. The flexibility and scalability of the Corcra solution, when combined with SmartWitness’ products delivers a real benefit to Corcra’s customer base. We look forward to helping their customers make even greater savings and improvements to their fleet.”
