Brian Joss – Telematics and tracking services provider, Ctrack, has introduced Iris, a high-quality, customisable video monitoring solution suitable for rental vehicles, light deliveries, fleet vehicles, heavy commercial’s, general machinery and buses.
With Iris, fleet owners can reduce the number of insurance claims they submit and settle the claims they submit much faster. Iris can also be used to lower fuel consumption and improve vehicle maintenance through better driving, while also reducing diesel and goods-in-transit theft.
By monitoring crew activities, it is possible to improve and enforce company processes and procedures and reduce theft, pilferage and stock damage.
Furthermore, the new video solution from Ctrack combined with a tracking device can improve vehicle route optimisation, increase load frequency and hasten turnaround times.
The number of side or back cameras (IP69) used can be specified by individual customers. Video footage can be recorded in eight quality settings, from CIF to 1080p. Live, real-time video streaming can be viewed on mobile devices.
Apart from the cameras, there are rear door triggers, a lockable video device, two-way communication system, fatigue and ADAS monitoring and an onboard/reverse screen. GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G and accelerometer modules can also be included.
Iris is supported by web-based, desktop software and a password protected mobile application. These platforms provide Geofence/Point-of-Interest information, live tracking and video and dashboard event management.
“Ctrack Iris is a sustainable, long-term video tracking solution,” said Hein Jordt MD of Ctrack.
