DriverMetrics guide to ‘maximise the safety benefits of telematics’

Fleet news logo

DriverMetrics has launched a free guide to maximising the safety benefits of telematics.

It aims to enable fleet managers and others involved in using telematics systems to understand the benefits and limitations of telematics for improving driver safety; discover how to use telematics data to identify the behavioural factors causing driver risk; and learn how to implement the latest approaches for changing high-risk driver behaviours.

Richard Hill, managing director, DriverMetrics said: “Despite the massive investment in in-vehicle technologies, such as telematics over the past decade, the road safety casualty figures remain stagnant.

“At DriverMetrics, our ongoing research and work with customers has enabled us to develop a methodology to maximise the benefits from telematics and we wanted to share this with our customers and the wider fleet community.”

DriverMetrics was established at Cranfield University in 2005, to make academic research into fleet driver safety more widely available.

Today, its portfolio of scientifically validated driver risk assessments, together with integrated eLearning and driver coaching interventions are used in the United Kingdom and 40 other countries by hundreds of organisations, including Unilever, Greyhound Bus and Shell.
