RAM Tracking has announced the launch of 3G live-streaming dash cams for fleet vehicles, ensuring all journeys are recorded.
Business dash cams (short for dashboard cameras) not only allow fleet managers to record and review driving behaviour, but they have proved invaluable for reducing insurance premiums and helping resolve accident blame disputes.
However, much of the dash cams installed in fleet vehicles tend to be consumer-designed products.
The “RAM Live” dash cam is believed to be “one of the first live streaming dash cams designed specifically for business use”, as the majority of dash cams installed in fleet vehicles are reported to be “consumer-designed products”.
RAM Tracking’s chief executive Chris McClellan (pictured) said: “Whilst consumer dash cams record high quality video, they often don’t do enough for fleet managers.
Footage can be deleted easily and obtaining footage requires manually downloading. If you’re a fleet manager of a thousand vehicles this task simply isn’t realistic.”
“Our RAM Live dash cam is one of the only dash cam systems designed especially for businesses in this situation.”
RAM Live also provides access to a secure online platform where users can login and view historic and live footage (as well as vehicle GPS location) for any vehicle.
It can be set-up so that it immediately notifies your fleet manager, HR department and even your insurance broker, in the event of a collision so they can review the situation via a live stream.
Driver safety was also a significant motivator for creating RAM Live.
McClellan said: “Enhanced technology such as the automatic detection system was something that we wanted to offer from day one.
Our RAM Live dash cam can detect unusual driving behaviour just from the footage and immediately notify the fleet manager via email”.
The RAM Live dash cam is available to both new and existing customers of RAM Tracking.
