Fleet Safety and Driver Monitoring

Driver behavior contributes to over 90 percent of the crashes that kill tens of thousands of people and cost billions of dollars annually. Improving fleet safety involves more than simple driver monitoring and reactive policy measures—it requires a proactive solution to verbally coach drivers in real-time to develop safer driving habits.

ORBCOMM technology is squarely focused on the driver, and offers the only real-time fleet safety solution that detects unsafe driver behavior and offers verbal coaching before a crash or fineable offense occurs.

Improve Fleet Safety with Verbal Driver Coaching

  • Speed-by-Street™: Send automated verbal alerts when drivers exceed the speed limit on any given road segment.

Keep Drivers Safe and in View

Monitor Drivers for Enhanced Fleet Performance

  • Automated Exception Alerts: Receive instant notifications via text, e-mail or phone call when a driver commits a serious violation.
