Trakm8's innovative 4G telematics camera is shortlisted for yet another national award. The Trakm8 RH600 camera, designed and manufactured in the West Midlands, has been shortlisted for the inaugural Great British Fleet Awards, taking place this week. It follows on Trakm8's success in November, when the RH600 won the IT Innovation category of the GreenFleet Awards 2018.
The Great British Fleet Awards are part of the Great British Fleet Event, a new event organised by Fleet World Group, which aims to celebrate the best of corporate motoring in the UK.
Trakm8 is one of the only telematics providers that designs and manufactures its devices in the UK, and holds the Made in Britain marque. The company supplies a wide range of customers in the fleet, automotive and insurance sectors. As well as entering the awards, Trakm8 also has an exhibition stand at the event and is contributing a speaker to the Technology Masterclass element of the conference.
The RH600 can have two cameras – one facing the road, and one facing into the cab. Together they provide hard evidence to defend fleets against false insurance claims, such as from ‘crash for cash’ fraudsters. It enabled one customer with 1,500 vehicles to ascertain that 50% of insurance claims made against the company were fabricated. Instances where footage was able to support a disputed claim in favour of the company also increased by 260%, compared to the previous dash cams installed in the fleet.
Unlike most other telematics cameras, the RH600 doesn’t just transmit GPS location data. It provides full telematics functionality, including driver behaviour analytics - and can also be integrated with Trakm8’s fleet optimisation solution.
Another major selling point is the RH600’s ability to predict vehicle failures before they happen. Through CAN Bus connectivity, the device provides diagnostic trouble code alerts and battery health information, helping to minimise the risk of a vehicle breakdown.
In 2019, Trakm8 will also update the RH600 with advanced driver assistance (ADAS) features including vehicle proximity warnings, and can alert both drivers and fleet managers to driver distraction events such as micro-sleeping.
Launched by Fleet World, the Great British Fleet Event is all-in-one, single-day event; taking place on 24th January 2019 at Novotel London West. It will bring together the best of the British fleet industry to guide operators on the latest thinking and innovations.
