SmartDrive releases 12-point buying guide for video-based rail safety systems

Posted on April 19, 2017

SmartDrive launched a “12 Point Buying Guide to Video-Based Safety Systems for the Rail Industry” White Paper, which is being hosted on  METRO Magazine's website.  

While rail-based transit is among the safest modes of transportation, individual incidents can have significant consequences. To protect passengers, the public, and your brand, it's critical to eliminate risky driving.

According to the White Paper, a video-based safety program will improve operator performance, but you need one that fits your unique business needs, including:

  • Capturing video based on rail specific triggers - slingshots, passing signal bars and penalty stops and mobile phone usage.
  • Accessing video within minutes of an incident to help your operators quickly get back on track.
  • Integrating video with your ATP Systems and other safety technologies for a unified view of risk.
  • Gaining transportation intelligence that helps you proactively manage your fleet.

To download the free 12-point Buying Guide, which outlines the selection criteria to consider whether you're just getting started with video technology or looking to upgrade your current program, click here.
