Buses, coaches and minibuses provide important services to local communities as well as travellers nationwide and internationally. With these vehicles operating in busy, built-up areas or at high speed on motorways and dual carriageways, passenger transport operators have a responsibility to avoid incidents involving cyclists or other road users. It is also critical to minimise risk to drivers, passengers and vehicles as a result of violence, vandalism and threatening behaviour.
Video telematics provides improved visibility, so a vehicle can be operated safely, and passengers have a risk-free journey. Using a range of cameras and dashboard-mounted monitors, drivers can view any blind spots or what is occurring inside the vehicle. In the event of an incident, passenger vehicle operators can gain immediate access to evidence of what has occurred through our Microsoft Azure-hosted, cloud-based IoT platform.
Collisions with cyclists and other vulnerable road users due to blind spots
Difficult and dangerous manoeuvring and reversing in bus/coach stations, depots and garages
Damage from impacts with road signs and street furniture due to poor visibility
Any collision typically involves large numbers of passengers so can result in significant personal injury claims
Increasing levels of violence, vandalism and threatening behaviour
Better protect drivers, passengers and vehicles by deterring attacks and damage
Enhance duty of care to improve driver retention
Defence against bogus and exaggerated allegations
Lessen the impact of personal injury claims
Monitor driver behaviour to identify areas of improvement and risk reduction
Faster claims resolution and reduce third-party costs
