Seminar offers advice on using in-vehicle technology to improve safety

Road safety charity Brake is looking at the issue of using in-vehicle technology to improve driver safety in a half-day seminar, which will take place in Birmingham on April 30, 2013 from 12.30-4pm.

Brake suggests that, if selected and used appropriately, in-vehicle technology can offer huge benefits to fleets by providing valuable data on drivers, vehicles and journeys which can be used to help prevent crashes and reduce costs.

Fleet professionals will have 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 give guidance to managers on asking the right questions to 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 line-up includes Pete Thomas, director of the Transport Safety Research Centre, Loughborough University and Phil Pettitt, chief executive at innovITS.

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."

The seminar is being sponsored by GreenRoad and delegate cost £70 +VAT for Brake subscribers, and £120 +VAT for non-subscribers.
