Future proof: Oakley Transport moves ahead with next-gen video safety technology

By Pulltarps Mfg | March 15, 2018

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.
