AngelTrax Innovates AGAIN, Becoming First to Bridge the Gap Between Safety and Security for Fleets

DOTHAN, Ala.—August 5, 2020—AngelTrax, a leading provider of mobile video safety and security solutions, recently announced the launch of a revolutionary driver safety system complete with automatic driver scoring, direct driver coaching and up to seven camera views.

“For a safer, more efficient fleet operation, you must have the tools to detect and coach unsafe driving behavior, and you must have video to see the root cause,” explained AngelTrax President and CEO Richie Howard. “Ours is the only fleet solution that delivers automated driver data collection, driver scoring and direct driver coaching with total camera coverage to show the context behind the data.”



Seven Camera Views

The launch showcases the new Vulcan Series CoPilot System featuring a dual-view HD 1080P windshield camera plus four additional HD 1080P channels and one IP 1080P channel—up to seven views to cover the interior and exterior of the vehicle. The Vulcan Series CoPilot System captures the view of the driver and cab and the view through the windshield plus optional views from the cab’s exterior facing forward, out and backward and an overview of the coupling/decoupling operation. The system’s recording unit features an astonishing 1TB maximum storage capacity and is capable of automatically uploading video clips for review and driver action data for driver scoring.



Drive to Zero

Driver scoring is continuously calculated in real time, and scores are available to supervisors via an online portal. “We evaluate every second of the trip. At the beginning of each month, each driver starts with a score of zero. Like golf, the lower the score, the better. So let’s Drive to Zero,” Howard said. AngelTrax’s unique data collection and algorithms, along with Direct to Driver coaching, reduce the risks of wrecks and fatalities.


Direct to Driver Coaching

“Our exclusive Direct to Driver Coaching option gives the driver direct notification on what he or she needs to do to improve their driving habits. By developing this program, we have removed this burden from the safety directors, giving them more time for other responsibilities.” Three to six months after the exclusive Direct to Driver Coaching program is implemented, trends will show distracted or aggressive driving raises the score, indicating increased risks of accidents and potential fatalities, and improvement lowers the score.



All scoring is done by machine, not humans. Excluding the human element from the scoring process allows for a more accurate and fair comparison of drivers for rankings. “Our competitors use humans reviewing video to score drivers, but that is entirely subjective. If five reviewers looked at the same video, they could potentially end up with five different scores for the same driver. Our proprietary method eliminates this problem.” Howard explained how this is accomplished. “Though we review thousands of videos, we do not have to see them to know how you drive. We can determine if you are aggressive or distracted or both in a very short time. The video merely gets us to the root cause of one’s driving habits. From our unique scoring algorithms and video reviews, we are able to perform direct coaching to the driver to help assist him or her in becoming a safer driver. This will help eliminate accidents as well as casualties.”



Video Management by AngelTrax

All downloaded video clips are reviewed by AngelTrax video experts. Video clips that require immediate action by the client are instantly elevated to the client under the ALERT tab on the MotoTrax portal. The client can review the clips along with any comments from the reviewer or AngelTrax supervisor. This gives the safety director the tools needed to take any necessary action.

AngelTrax bridges the gap between safety and security for fleets of all types and sizes with automatic scoring, Drive to Zero driver improvement, Direct to Driver Coaching, total camera coverage and expert video review.
