Hey, Javier here again, but not for a Rastrac Tech Minute. Bet ya didn’t see that coming!
Today I’m here with some exciting news about the latest addition to the Rastrac product line, specifically in fleet safety. Rastrac has released a new collision avoidance system called RastracView. RastracView helps change the behavior of drivers by giving them instant and historical feedback on how they are driving by turning their iPhone into an advanced traffic viewer, easily and inexpensively. We have been testing this system in our own vehicles and it is rock solid. And, I can personally attest it really has changed my driving habits for the better. I used to drive too close to vehicles in front of me, but not anymore.
You simply download the app and acquire a dashboard cradle and put your iPhone in the cradle while you’re driving. The iPhone camera then acts as the advanced traffic viewer and warns the driver of threats close by. It will tell the driver if they are following too close, drifting out of their lane and if something is moving into a dangerous position in front of them. And, it will give the fleet manager a report card for each driver.
If you have been looking for a viewer based Advanced Driver Assistance System for your fleet, but can’t afford the thousands of dollars necessary to outfit your fleet vehicles with permanent cameras, come talk to us about RastracView.
