ERoad has expanded its video telematics portfolio with the ERoad Clarity Solo Dashcam, a single, connected and cost-effective video solution that delivers operational visibility while improving driver safety and protecting carriers and drivers from false claims.
Clarity Solo makes it easier for carriers to configure and implement video telematics into more asset and fleet types, according to ERoad, ranging from national and regional mixed fleets to local short-haul heavy and light commercial vehicle fleets, such as construction, waste management and distribution vehicles.
ERoad Clarity Solo’s dual-facing camera delivers HD footage that enables fleet owners to see what their drivers see with every safety event.
“Today, driver exoneration by video is an absolute imperative for fleet operators to protect their drivers and their businesses,” said Jim Angel, VP of video telematics, in a news release. “This is especially true for heavy short-haul fleets such as waste and construction trucks or light commercial delivery vehicles that are navigating challenging environments, like busy and construction-ridden city streets and residential neighborhoods.”
To support easier and quicker video investigation, ERoad has added a new feature that will be available across its entire video telematics portfolio. The ERoad fleet management cloud portal now enables video search based on vehicle location in addition to time of day, which the company said has been proven to be a more effective way to find the right video evidence to protect and exonerate drivers. This is because most people link events to where they were when recalling a specific and memorable incident, like a major accident.
A more agile search system, paired with contactless log-on technology that associates all video and telematics to a specific driver, helps fleet owners protect drivers while offering more meaningful coaching based on specific examples.
“With Clarity Solo, we’re bringing the same high-quality Clarity video telematics solution to more fleets that can gain significant advantages from the benefits of video,” said Casey Ellis, president of ERoad North America, in a news release. “Importantly, this includes spending a lot less time combing through video clips, freeing fleet owners up to focus on driving their businesses forward, safely and efficiently.”
The standalone dash cam can be integrated with existing ERoad solutions, including fleet management, ELD, as well as trailer and asset tracking. But it also offers carriers the flexibility to implement the solution alongside any fleet management system.
ERoad's original Clarity dashcam was named a 2021 HDT Top 20 Product.
