PITTSBURGH, Penn. — Invention Submission Corporation announces that one of its clients, an inventor from Cle Elum, Wash., has designed a system that would record the events occurring in front of a truck or vehicle.
The TRUCKCAM would provide an unbiased account of incidents and accidents that occur while a driver is in route. Since the invention would help to determine the cause of accidents, it could reduce fraudulent claims against drivers. In addition to monitoring incidents on the road, it would also monitor the drivers’ operation of the vehicle, encouraging them to drive safely.
On-the-job experiences inspired the inventor to develop the TRUCKCAM.
“As a retired police officer turned semi-truck driver, I observed that the average car driver lacks knowledge of the dangers in driving too closely to heavy trucks, which leads to accidents,” he explained. “I designed this to protect semi drivers against false claims.”
It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368 or visit the Web site at www.isc-online.com
