capturing video and location evidence

Taunton School was suffering from opportunistic people making false claims against its drivers. They needed detailed video and location evidence which only dash cameras can provide.

It was back to school recently for Fleet Witness, when we visited Taunton to fit cameras into their fleet of coaches and minibuses. Set in picturesque grounds, the magnificent building is ‘home’ to pupils from both the UK and abroad. Many are boarding, but around 180 pupils are transported daily from various locations in Somerset. Their safety and security is the school’s number one priority.

The Fleet

Taunton’s fleet consists of three coaches, twelve mini-buses, three MPVs and a couple of utility vehicles, and over the last few years, they have had a number of claims made against them which they were unable to defend due to a lack of evidence. 

The school decided that the only way forward was to install dash cams across the whole of their fleet. A move which has been welcomed by both professional drivers and academic staff alike.

Fleet Witness worked closely with Taunton School to deploy, test and train the staff on how to manage and use the system effectively. Within days of the cameras being installed footage was captured that provided vital evidence in identifying damage done to one of the vehicles. 

The footage gave Taunton the evidence required to prove accountability.

Since safety is very much a priority for Reive and Grossart, they contacted Fleet Witness to enquire about equipping the vehicles with all-around cameras for maximum, 360° coverage. Monitors and DVRs would also be installed, fully equipped with 4G so that clients could remotely access and download the footage.

Being the brains of the system, the DVR is where all cameras and programmable triggers wire back to. When this is correctly set up and configured, it can automatically communicate with our Fleet Witness Live platform, allowing real-time tracking and camera footage, along with detailed insights into journey details, driver behaviour, and more.

Fleet Witness recently worked alongside a fleet of courier vans to supply and install a connected 5-camera system. This allowed full 360° visibility around and inside the vehicle, and live GPS tracking abilities from the Fleet Witness Live platform.

Like many companies, they had found their drivers in situations where they had been involved in an accident but had been unable to prove their innocence. Alongside this, their drivers transport valuable goods to customers every day.

Ensuring the safety of these goods is a major priority, it was decided that a 5 camera DVR system with access to the Fleet Witness Live tracking and management platform would be most suitable for the management of their fleet.

In Operation

The courier vans were fitted with five cameras covering all angles of the vehicle. These link back to our DVR – the brains of the operation. Live video footage and location details are automatically sent onto our server.

During a vehicle theft, which took place in broad daylight. Our customer was able to access Fleet Witness Live and find the exact location of the vehicle using our Smartphone App.

Our customer quickly recovered the vehicle and minimised loss of valuable goods, or damage to the vehicle itself.
