Going Beyond Road-Facing and Cab-Facing Cameras
When fleets consider adding video-based safety, one of the biggest questions they face is whether to install road-facing and cab-facing, road-facing only, or adding additional cameras to capture rear and side incidents (360 view). For Mike Ferry of O&G Industries, it was a no brainer.
“We utilize the 360 feature because we are operating at low speeds in tight quarters when we do deliveries of either aggregates, concrete, asphalt, whatever it may be. When we are doing these deliveries without a third camera on the back of the truck, we are not going to have that footage to support what took place in reverse. We have a lot of back-up accidents. We want to try to eliminate those and the 360 has been able to help us with that.”
The extra eyes on the road, and around the vehicle, that 360 provides gives fleets, like O&G, additional context for driving-related situations and ensures compliance for work being done outside the vehicle. This is particularly important considering that 35% of all collisions are side and rear incidents. Request your free demo today.
