Teletrac Navman launches Smart Dashcams to ‘transform’ driver coaching

Teletrac Navman wants to transform in-cab driver training with the launch of Smart Dashcams, which can send automatic in-cab guidance to encourage best practices.

Smart Dashcams reviews every minute of drive time through forward and driver-facing cameras. AI video captures driving behaviour together with training events which can be reviewed retrospectively by the transport manager.

The system also learns on the job allowing training to be continually fine-tuned as driver skill increases.

The driver can access Smart Dashcams via a mobile app where actions and coaching events can be viewed, creating a positive culture around driver safety.

The application integrates with Teletrac Navman’s TN360 platform and can send automatic in-cab guidance to encourage best practices.

It can notify drivers of potentially dangerous situations allowing them to take avoiding action, for example, it will alert a driver that appears distracted behind the wheel.

Barney Goffer, UK product manager at Teletrac Navman, said: “The cutting-edge, built-in coaching program gives this solution a strong point of difference that will help customers manage risk.

“From a driver’s perspective, the AI engine is continually recording and learning, which means monitoring behaviour is tailored to each individual to make training more valuable and meaningful.”

Peter Millichap, marketing director at Teletrac Navman, added: “We’re excited to bring this new ground-breaking technology to the UK, following its success in the US and Australian markets.

“AI-powered video technology removes the guesswork and manual processes for operators and promotes transparency and trust in commercial drivers.

“Findings from the latest Department for Transport report showed that there were 19,152 road accidents in the UK in 2020, supporting the importance of promoting a positive safety culture within fleets.

“In addition, it allows transport managers to turn data into decisions that can positively impact vehicle operating costs, for example, cutting down on fuel consumption, which is a priority now more than ever.”
