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.

Identification Sensors

IS 400 Tractor ID Sensor

The IS 400 seamlessly integrates with our GT 1200 series trailer tracking devices, to allow dispatch to identify the truck that is connected to a trailer. The IS 400 uses Bluetooth technology to allow fleets to ensure that the right truck is connected to the right trailer, saving time and money. The Tractor ID sensor makes life easier for drivers by taking a menial task off their hands, improving driver retention for fleets, while giving the back office the peace of mind that the right cargo is on its way to the right destination.
