This week while travelling I noticed that my Limo had a special camera – a DriveCam. Actually, this device has cameras both front and back – watching what is going on in the vehicle as well as the view out the front. When unusual forces are detected by sensors in the camera, for instance due to hard braking or a fast turn, a video of the event is kept and tranmitted via a celluar network. Speed, location and forces are all tracked and compiled into reports on the driver. DriveCam boasts improvements to safety, fuel efficiency, and a reduction in fraudulent claims.
DriveCam isn’t only for Limosines and other commercial drivers – the product is also being used for teenage drivers.
