Fleet Management Systems & Technologies (FMS Tech)has launched FMS Eagle Eye, which it says is the first-ever integration of in-cabin smart cameras with telematics hardware and software in the GCC. The new technology will make it possible for fleets to ensure optimum security for fleet vehicless.
FMS Tech’s distributor in Oman, FMS Tech and Global Fleet Management Systems (Global FMS), had prelaunched the innovative in–cabin smart camera technology for video recording, live streaming, and monitoring in Oman and trials by select clients and Petroleum Development Oman, PDO. These trials proved to be highly successful.
The FMS Eagle Eye system essentially comprises two smart cameras – with one facing the road and the other facing the driver which are integrated with the IVMS device. The system offers high quality recording, live streaming, snapshot for driver ID verification and violation recording, playback capabilities for heightened security, and wired or wireless camera options. The information obtained through the cameras is recorded and stored on the device storage locally and with event-based real time video feeds being sent to the control center. The data is highly confidential and is only available to authorized persons on a case to case basis.
With a view to safety, many companies in the oil and gas sector are keen to implement strict Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) policies. The IVMS solutions and video cameras will be highly useful for this purpose. Earlier, the control center manager had to spend hours manually matching up the data provided by each device as the technologies working independently of each other.
FMS Tech Eagle Eye helps companies to eliminate these extra steps and benefit from the integration of IVMS and live video streaming. Using Eagle Eye, companies can understand exactly what happened before, during and right after an accident via video clips. Customers will be able to accurately determine if the driver is at fault for a violation or if it was an unavoidable incident. They can also benefit from heightened security against theft.
PDO awarded FMS Tech and Global FMS a six-month pilot project for the first client implementation and testing of this new technology. PDO is implementing the devices on a specific set of vehicles at selected PDO sites. The pilot testing will last for a period of six months with potential plans for future rollouts.
In-vehicle monitoring technologies are becoming increasingly popular thanks to the stricter road safety regulations of the oil and gas industry. FMS Eagle Eye ensures a strict adherence to HSE policy. It is also committed to increasing security and reducing fatal road accidents.
FMS Tech is the first ever to launch this advanced technology in the region. And use of the FMS Eagle Eye, the first such technology to integrate the IVMS and smart cameras will further enhance road safety and HSE compliances of the oil and gas industry in the GCC.
