By CIOReview | Tuesday, July 28, 2015

BOCA RATON, FL: MiX Telematics, a global provider of fleet and mobile asset management solutions has come up with Mix Vision, a popular in-vehicle monitoring solution offering video based application for drivers in the U.S.  

Integrated with MiX’s onboard computer and web-based fleet management platform, MiX Vision maintains a rolling 72 hours of footage per vehicle and automatically adds links to video clips within driver safety scoring analysis.

According to the latest figures available, there were 389,000 vehicle crashes in the U.S with loss estimated around $103 billion. MiX Vision fleet management solution helps prevent crashes and also helps fleet managers and investigators determine the actual cause of accident. “MiX Vision has proven to be a very popular offering for MiX Telematics around the globe, and we have now brought it to the U.S.,” says Skip Kinford, President and CEO of MiX Telematics Americas.

MiX Vision delivers front-facing and cab-facing video, with sound and visual clarity at the time of event which means that low light recording and accompanying sound is possible. It also has other features like display of date, time, vehicle speed and RPM during the play-back. The video can be retrieved from any 2:30-minute segment when needed so fleet managers can view what happened before an event occurred on a map or timeline - for instance, was the driver momentarily distracted, or did another vehicle swerve into the driver’s path.

As an enhancement to MiX Telematics’s fleet management system, it offers fleets to make more informed decisions around incidents involving their drivers, to identify drivers who may need additional coaching and training and prevent crashes which will ultimately reduce insurance rates.

According to Kinford, “U.S. customers are extremely safety conscious, and those who have seen the MiX Vision product are eager to roll it out to their fleets, not only to help improve safety but also to reduce their liability position on frivolous claims. It’s an important element of a company’s overall safety and fleet management strategy."
