Road safety charity Brake has published a report aimed at showing fleet professionals how they can use technology to improve the safety of their drivers.
'Using technology to improve fleet safety' has been produced in collaboration with MiX Telematics and covers technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS, including both automated and warning systems, driver behaviour systems and telematics.
It also gives an update on developments with automated and connected vehicles.
The report also provides an overview of crash protection for vehicle occupants, crash protection for those outside the vehicle (other road users), blind spot protection, and anti-driver impairment and distraction systems.
Caroline Perry, Brake’s NZ director, said: “Vehicle technology is evolving rapidly, and there are an increasing number of systems available that aim to improve vehicle and driver safety.
"Driving is the most dangerous activity most employees engage in, and it is vital that organisations take positive steps to manage their at-work road risk."
