What is video telematics? Leveraging telematics dash cam technology
Video telematics consists of fleet video and g-force and GPS based data, giving fleet managers a street level view of driver behavior before, during, and after an accident or harsh driving incident. The data able to be captured through video telematics beyond camera footage includes harsh braking, hard cornering, rapid acceleration, rapid deceleration, and basic GPS data including real-time vehicle location tracking and past trip routes.
When fleet managers require telematics data beyond g-force and GPS data points, fleet managers can combine video telematics captured through connected dash cameras like GFI with traditional vehicle telematics.
Vehicle telematics works hand-in-hand with connected dash cameras to give safety managers the advanced insights they need. GFI customers can create driver scorecards, automatic reports, and set custom events using the combined power of telematics data and the GFI system. Our customizable trigger settings can work with telematics systems to provide advanced crash detection and event filtering for fleets seeking deeper analytics and performance tools.
GFI’s telematics integrations combine the data provided by a traditional tracking technology with vision-based information, giving safety managers and fleet owners data they can use for training, tracking, or – in the event of an incident – to prove who was at fault.
And safety managers who opt for a self-managed solution can feel confident knowing that they won’t waste their time reviewing irrelevant information. GFI’s harsh driving triggers can be set at customised levels, meaning fleets only receive the data that matters most to their business. We use machine learning to help filter relevant videos, allowing the GFI technology to do the heavy lifting.
