Against the backdrop of £52 million worth of commercial vehicles and road cargo reported as stolen in 2010 by Truckpol, Cobra has teamed up with Global Vehicle Systems to launch Global Live.
This new live CCTV monitoring security system is designed to protect the assets and employees of companies involved in commercial haulage and those with mobile assets in high risk situations.
Global Live offers a number of safety and security benefits for CV operators and even the remote locking and unlocking of cargo doors to protect valuable loads.
Designed primarily for commercial vehicle operators transporting high value consignments including electronic goods, the in-vehicle cameras monitor the cabin and load areas 24/7, audibly and visually, to protect employees and assets in equal measure.
Personnel at the Cobra Secure Operating Centre (SOC) can view in real time and download images and data to keep an eye on vehicles both en route and when parked, and GPS tracking enables the pinpoint location of the vehicle at any time.
Andrew Smith, managing director of Cobra UK, said: “Global Live is a natural extension to the Cobra portfolio of products and telematics services, building on our proven strengths in the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors with our CobraTrak range of stolen vehicle tracking and telematics solutions.”
