The Commercial Vehicle (CV) Show will see the launch of Intelligent Telematics’ 3G multi-camera system at Stand 4H70. The new solution will integrate smoothly within the company’s software platform, which means that commercial fleet operators can combine a range of internal and external camera options to gain complete visibility of what really happened in case of a road collision.

“We have seen growing demand for a connected multi-camera system that works alongside our leading 3G single-and dual-camera solutions to capture video evidence from the front, driver, side and rear views,” explains Sam Footer, Partnerships & Marketing Director of Intelligent Telematics.

“Following a review of the marketplace, we found that a complementary system that possessed the required levels of usability, dependability and accessibility did not currently exist. As a result, we took the decision to develop our own bespoke technology solution that meets the exact needs of commercial fleet customers,” he added.

The connected multi-camera system will be the first connected camera solution that can access accurate engine data such as MPG, RPM, and odometer reading. It will be suitable for up to four internal and external cameras and use a solid-state mobile DVR for optimum performance and reliability. Moreover, the system will be highly flexible, with automated and manual upload options that can be configured according to individual requirements.

Key partners will be joining Intelligent Telematics at its stand to demonstrate how its connected camera solutions can be combined with complementary services to further reduce exposure to risk and better controls insurance costs. Sopp+Sopp and Plexus Law will offer advice and guidance on the advantages of video monitoring, first notification of loss (FNOL) and proactive claims handling.

“While simply having access to video footage will certainly achieve clear benefits, having appropriate processes in place will help road transport and logistics operations to maximise the true savings potential of connected camera technology. With spiralling insurance costs, fleets are increasingly looking at ways to reduce exposure to risk and better manage claims. Vehicle cameras are now a proven means of achieving this, but there is even greater savings potential by taking a joined-up and managed approach,” concluded Footer.
