Fleet Safety: Verbal Driving Coaching

Fleet safety experts estimate that 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 true real-time fleet safety solution that detects unsafe driver behavior and offers verbal coaching before a crash or fineable offense occurs.

  • Voice Coaching: Our in-cab coaching technology talks to drivers, telling them when they are speeding or driving aggressively to help them develop better driving habits overtime.

  • Seat Belt Alerts: ORBCOMM’s fleet management solutions monitor seat belt use and alert drivers and managers when they are not used.

  • Speeding: Our Speed-by-Street functionality—unique in the industry— tells drivers when they exceed the speed limit on any road to improve safety and avoid fines.

  • Crash Detection: The solution automatically detects accidents and roll-overs, delivering instant notifications to managers via phone, text or email, and collecting vehicle data before, during and after a collision to enable accident reconstruction.

  • Panic Button: Drivers in trouble or in an emergency can place a call with a push of a button.

  • Driver scoring: Driver and fleet scoring rewards drivers with good records and identify those who require additional training.

Fleet Safety: In-Cab Cameras

From identifying unsafe driving behavior to helping exonerate innocent drivers, in-cab cameras have become a critical addition to modern fleet management solutions. Camera footage helps fleet managers improve driving habits and training while minimizing liability risk and associated costs.

The IC 500, ORBCOMM’s forward and optional inward-facing in-cab camera, captures critical video to serve as a virtual witness that can help protect drivers and fleets against false claims.

In-Cab Cameras
  • Video Evidence: Capture video that can prove the innocence of your drivers to help avoid costly fines and protect your reputation.

  • Driver Training : Automatically record footage when critical events occur or configure thresholds to capture other minor incidents that can help improve driving skills

  • Complete Visibility : Pair footage with data generated by the BT 500 truck telematics device to get the complete picture and enhance visibility of operations.

  • Outward and Inward Optional : Capture footage of events on the road and, optionally, in the cab with the inward-facing camera.

  • Fleet Safety : Use footage to address unsafe driving habits and help keep drivers safe.
