Video and Data Analytics

Meritor WABCO and SmartDrive Systems are developing what they call the trucking industry’s “most comprehensive and efficient performance management system” to help fleets improve safety and operational efficiency. It will be available starting next month.

‘ProView Powered by SmartDrive’ will provide insights into driving situations through video-based analysis. A personalized driving-performance improvement program and predictive analytics are also available to help reduce collisions and improve fuel efficiency. In addition, ProView will offer extensive resource materials, including safety and efficiency best practices as well as an online discussion forum.

By offering video and data analytics and delivering critical event video content fast, says Meritor WABCO, fleets can identify and significantly reduce potentially dangerous situations.

The video feature, similar to ‘game film’ analysis used by sports coaches, is a tool that unifies vehicle, driver, and driving data. The system comes with both a forward-looking and in-cab camera. Fleet managers have access to the video through SmartDrive’s Web-based back-office application. Drivers can access the video directly through a smartphone app.

ProView’s ability to deliver the whole picture helps fleets identify the potential root causes of vehicle and driving issues and can ultimately improve safety on our roads, the companies say. Fleets can prioritize coaching with a focus on high-impact areas, such as following-distance violations, excessive idling and acceleration, stability events, rolling stops, and driver inattention. Recorded video data can also validate safe driving practices among a fleet’s drivers.

Sales, service and technical support for ProView will be available from DriveForce and OnTrac, Meritor’s organization of 110 support professionals.

ProView’s open platform integrates with third-party vehicle systems from any manufacturer.
