Improving Driver Awareness with Telematics
Working with Anthony's Travel, Synectics supports and maintains CCTV systems on their fleet of over 1,600 vehicles. Richard Bamber, Partner of Anthony's Travel, said: “We’ve had complaints that turned out to be totally unfounded. If it wasn’t for CCTV, drivers would have no back-up, no protection."
"Once it filters down to drivers that the purpose of having CCTV is to protect them, not persecute them, then they’re all for it. My drivers have really bought into the value of using CCTV and now tend to tell me about incidents before they’re reported by the public, or tell me there’s a bit of footage they want me to look at. It’s very rare that we have to discipline the driver after looking at evidence. But if the equipment means drivers think before they speak, that’s not a bad thing.””

2. Integrate Onboard Systems
You can make your CCTV system work harder by integrating it with on-board entertainment, telematics and other systems.
3. Let the System Health Check Itself
Keeping track of all mission-critical system is nigh impossible. Modern mobile systems can check their own health and report back any faults.
4. Command and Control
New CCTV software allows you to see the big picture, and overlay footage with vehicle signals and map information, along with view feeds from a control room.
5. Faster Access
Footage can be accessed ever faster, retrieved remotely, shared wirelessly or viewed live via 3G/4G.
