Future proof: Oakley Transport moves ahead with next-gen video safety technology
In October 2017, a top-performing driver for Oakley Transport crossed the centerline of a bridge at approximately 4 a.m.
A windshield-mounted Bendix camera system detected the lane departure and instantaneously shared data with an in-vehicle SmartRecorder 3 (SR3) device from SmartDrive.
The SR3 captured and transmitted a 20-second video clip for Oakley Transport to review through a SmartIQ web portal.
“It was a scary moment to watch,” recalls Craig Stevens, Oakley’s vice president of operations and strategic initiatives. He saw the driver shaking himself to try and stay alert. Story by Aaron Huff / ccjdigital.com.
