RoadHawk is aiming to build on the success of its DC-1 black box camera system within the commercial, insurance and fleet sectors with its latest version, the DC-2.
The forward facing black box camera system becomes RoadHawk's flagship insurance endorsed camera to provide evidential grade video documentation with supporting data.
The camera and later analysis of data it captures can, according to RoadHawk, help exonerate drivers and cut the cost of crashes within commercial fleets.
It also can be used to encourage safer and more fuel efficient driving, while also enhancing driver security.
In a nine-month trial of the cameras in commercial vehicles, 56% of drivers said the camera’s presence had caused them to change their driving behaviour for the better and 75% said they felt the cameras improved their personal safety and security.
Mark Nelson, managing director at RoadHawk, said: “In the ever changing world of vehicle cameras, RoadHawk strives to maintain its market leading force, by listening to the feedback from the people who need the best systems available and constantly improving the technology to meet these demands.”
RoadHawk DC-2 key features include: full HD 1080p video recording; improved low light sensitivity lens sensor; alarm input for remote triggering and output connection to tracking devices; and optional secure locking solution to prevent tampering.
The system retails for £179.95 and will be available from September 2014.
