RoadScan has launched a new VEDR (video event data recorder) for vans and trucks which not only records accidents and driver behaviour before, during and after an accident but also records the speed and GPS map location as well as sound.
The new unit captures on video all the events of an accident to be impartially analysed afterwards, including:
- Video of the accident from the driver’s cab 14 seconds before it happens and six seconds during and after
- Speed recorded over the whole incident
- Acceleration and braking of the vehicle (G forces)
- GPS Map location
- Sound recording
The events are recorded on to a memory chip for easy downloading on to a PC.
A spokesman said: “RoadScan VEDRs also provide a missing business tool, for the first time seeing how your drivers perform when on the road.
“Are they driving to company standards? RoadScan will enable fleet trainers to pinpoint necessary additional training and review the results.
“Ambulance and emergency service providers in the USA and Ireland have found VEDRs provide a safeguard to the operation crews, providing vital video information of accidents and near misses.”
