GPS Tracking and Driver Monitoring Systems

If you are browsing this page no doubt you are considering a tracking system for your business vehicles, your fixed assets (plant) a driver/operator monitoring system or perhaps all of these things.

Researching and choosing the right products and system to suit your needs can be very confusing.

For this reason we at Andrews High Tech don’t look to sell you a range of products, but rather a solution to your particular requirements.

From our experience there are some very important questions you must ask and take into consideration before making a purchase decision, these are:

  • Who is going to help me install the equipment I purchase?
  • Who is going to offer me training so I fully understand and maximise the potential of my system?
  • Who is going to offer me the backup service when I have a question and how readily available are they likely to be?
  • Will they even be in Australia and available during my business operating hours?

The first step toward making the right decision for your business is to make a call to our very friendly and very knowledgeable fleet systems expert Sehran. From your conversation Sehran will have a feel for what solution may best suit your needs from our suite of products.

The second step toward making the right decision is to arrange an appointment time for Sehran to call on your business and take a meeting. This is Sehran’s opportunity to get a real feel for how your business operates and what products should be implemented to maximise efficiency and safety of operations. A demonstration of how our tracking system works is incorporated in your meeting.

The third step is that Sehran will compile and present to you a product package that marries perfectly with your business requirements.

We are the licensed dealers on the Sunshine Coast for Teletrac Navman, a world leader in GPS-based technology and information.

We also install the products we supply. Our licensed installers travel far and wide to perform installations, on anything from a small pizza delivery car to a prime mover or bulldozer.

Don’t live on the Sunshine Coast, no problem. We have client’s as far away as Mount Isa and we take care of business with them just as if there business was around the corner. The only difference is meetings and demonstrations are performed through Skype and Webinars. We still organise and execute the installation arrangements.

We are very proud of our after sales and back up service too, we believe we are second to none. Help and swift action is only a phone call away.

What’s more we offer to perform fleet monitoring for you. If you’re too busy we are only too happy to monitor and alert you when vehicles are due for servicing and if driver abuse is recorded.

You may want nothing more than a simple system that will track the movement of your vehicle throughout the day. Or you may want something more complex that incorporates forward and rear facing cameras mounted on your vehicle and a camera to monitor your driver’s behaviour. Perhaps you want some customised electronic check lists that the driver is required to tick off and sign off on before your vehicle hits the road and again when it is parked up for the day. Well these are all things that we can arrange for you along with a host of other products you may not even have heard of yet.

Camera Monitoring System

Unisyn is an in-vehicle recording system specifically designed for fleets to assist in managing issues with company vehicles. It provides cloud accessible video footage of events that occur in and around your vehicles for use in equipment monitoring, insurance issues, driver management or customer complaints.

Unisyn is based on the VerifEye VOC-1 which allows for camera configurations that are flexible enough to meet almost any requirement. You can have a single camera for a simple road view; a two camera system for road and driver view or multiple cameras for additional rear, side or specific equipment views. The VOC-1 cameras are independent, networked units that combine as a vision system to provide a complete picture of the vehicle and surrounds.

How Unisyn Records

The Unisyn camera system uses event based or continuous recording. Events are triggers like harsh braking or rollover and are detected by a Driver Behaviour Monitor. This means that all VOC-1 cameras in the system are continuously recording, but only store the footage when a trigger occurs. The system has pre-trigger and post-trigger recording because in most cases, the interesting part of the footage happened just before the trigger occurred. For example harsh braking, a 15 second clip is saved – 10 seconds before the event occurred and 5 seconds after. Additional triggers, events and clip configurations are possible. If there are no automatically detected events available, continuous recording is also possible with a VOC-1 based system.

Data Storage and Management

There is no need to manage the downloading of footage from the vehicles as this is automatically handled. When VOC-1 has internet access, the event clips are automatically sent to the Unisyn secure cloud storage.  This can be done in near real time over the 4G network or when the vehicle returns to base over Wi-Fi.

If there was no automatic event detected, you can browse through the entire memory of the camera from the cloud portal while the vehicle is on the road. With a start and end marker, select a clip and it is uploaded without ever taking the vehicle off the road.

The video footage is a critical piece of evidence in assessing what happened and potentially who is at fault. Due to this, security of the storage media and restricting access to the recorded data is vital. VOC-1 footage is stored in an encrypted format on the solid state memory in a tamper resistant compartment either in the unit or concealed inside the vehicle.

Accessing the Footage

Your video clips are available by logging into the Smart Cloud Portal. This ensures access and security to your data whenever and wherever you need it. The video data can be accessed by using a web browser from any internet connected computer using a valid portal login. This allows the fleet manager to control the data and ensure that there is no unauthorised access.

Real Time Streaming Access

There may be times when you need to see what is happening in the vehicle right now. For example, you just received an alert that a vehicle has strayed outside the defined geo-fence area. Using the Smart Cloud service, you can connect to any vehicle and view a live stream of any camera using any web browser. This allows you to make informed decisions about the driver or vehicle in real time and act fast. Note that his is only available if the vehicle is using 3/4G/4GX as the network connection.
