Brake offers advice for fleets on using in-vehicle technology

Road safety charity Brake has announced a date for its essential seminar on using in-vehicle technology to improve driver safety.

In-vehicle technology can offer benefits to fleets by providing valuable data on drivers, vehicles and journeys which can be used to help prevent crashes and reduce costs. In light of this, Brake is offering fleet professionals the opportunity to hear from academic experts and experienced practitioners on the options available, features to look for to ensure driver safety, and how to work with your drivers to get the best from technology.

Speakers will explain the benefits to fleets of adopting in-vehicle technologies and how managers can find the most suitable products for their fleet. A best practice case study will show how one company has successfully introduced in-vehicle technologies to reduce risks to drivers and other road users.

The seminar will include presentations from experienced academics and fleet professionals, including:

  • Dr Natasha Merat - Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Transport Studies - University of Leeds
  • Steve Warner - Business Development Manager, innovITS
  • Andy Cozens - Senior Consultant, GreenRoad

Ellie Pearson, senior professional engagement officer at Brake, said: “New technologies are allowing fleets to keep their drivers and vehicles safer than ever before, protecting employees and company reputations, and saving money. Brake is committed to sharing good practice and helping as many fleets as possible to exploit and benefit from the latest safety technology. This seminar is a great opportunity to find out the essentials for using in-vehicle technology effectively – don’t miss it.”

Andy Cozens, senior consultant at GreenRoad, said:“We have supported Brake since 2008 and we believe their sterling work is making Britain’s roads safer. This particular seminar will give fleet managers the opportunity to understand the value of engaging with drivers through a well-defined behaviour change management programme.”

Delegate places at the seminar cost just £70 +VAT for Brake subscribers, and £120 +VAT for non-subscribers.
