Video round-up: Trakm8 showcases telematics at the Trakm8 Technology Roadshow
We recently invited our customers and distribution partners to the Ricoh Arena, Coventry for our Technology Roadshow where we showcased our new telematics technologies.
Visitors got the chance to speak with our representatives about our existing solutions in the fleet, insurance and automotive industries and also view numerous demonstrations of products we have developed over the last 12 months. Our product demos included our new integrated telematics camera, the RoadHawk 600, our Trakm8connectedcare vehicle diagnostics solution and the recently launched MyRouteMonkey electric vehicle journey planner.
Our eco-driving course gave attendees the chance to put their safe and efficient driving techniques to the test with the most improved driver receiving a double supercar thrill day. After performing a benchmark lap around the track and learning about their individual areas for improvement, the drivers embarked on another lap of the course in the hope of improving any speeding, heavy braking and harsh acceleration events picked up by our telematics device. WeTrack’s Nick Chichester took home the prize for the most improved driver of the day! Well done, Nick!
In addition to our driver behaviour competition, our big data scientists were on hand to demonstrate how we gather data on low impact collisions which resulted in our two Vauxhall Corsas having seen far better days. The data we collected at various speeds allows our telematics devices to automatically differentiate between jolts from low impact crashes and those caused by mounting curbs or hitting potholes.
Demonstrations of our work in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems were also carried out throughout the day, with a RoadHawk 600 camera on hand to simulate what would happen in the event of distracted driving or driver drowsiness.
We would like to thank all of our attendees for joining us at the Technology Roadshow and for those of you who couldn’t make it, catch highlights from the day and find out what our customers thought in the video below!
