Truck Driver Camera Incident Reports & Analysis

May 17th, 2013 Comments off

Following the increased interest in In Cab Camera’s from our customer base, aide automotive have also backed this up with a support service for those who require assistance in reporting footage for insurance claims.

On Board recording cameras are becoming an essential tool in vehicle incident evidence for vehicle operating companies, recent “Crash For Cash” scams have made the use of a camera an excellent tool in proving the scammers.

Dealing with claims and reporting the incident can be a time consuming trial and making sure  the correct information to win a claim is passed to the insurance company.

aide automotive can offer basic report or comprehensive analysis of all data with a full report acceptable to courts and insurance companies. Using data and video footage from the system, aide automotive can offer in depth Forensic analysis and the preparation of comprehensive reports, to assist in defending driving offences or disputed collision details.  This is via our own Expert Witness in this field and would include court appearances if required.  Whilst this is an additional cost service, this would usually be funded by insurance companies as it could drastically reduce their exposure to claims OR be reclaimed from the third party in settlement of a claim.

Truck Incident In Cab Camera

March 12th, 2013 Comments off

On Board recording cameras are becoming an essential tool in vehicle incident evidence for vehicle operating companies.

Ideal for all applications such as Truck & Bus operators, Law Enforcement, Hauliers, Taxi, Private Cars and much more.

A recent call to aide automotive where a customer’s van fleet had been targeted for “Crash For Cash” moved the customer in the use of In Cab Camera’s as a retro fit to the fleet.

The Customer stated “Having been targeted by these people we decided to fit these cameras as a protective measure against Crash For Cash claims, but we have also seen to full benefit of the camera to improve driver standards and inevitable road accidents.”

The Black Vue is easily installed in less than a few minutes in any vehicle, the Camera bracket with sticky pad can be adjusted to suit any window.

Black Vue Software When you remove the SD Card and plug it into the computer you can then simply analyse how the accident was occurred with the Road Eye software. This software will allow you to watch back on the event, collecting vital information about your speed and location. A built in Google Map will show you the journey on the road while on playback and will allow you to find your exact location.

Companies could see their insurance premiums double in a year due to  ‘crash for cash’ incidents, also it is stated that a majority of crashes and accidents that involve a fleets vehicles are not the company’s fault.

Cameras argue the case for the operator, rather than filling out paper claim forms a cameras evidence is non questionable. With insurance companies generally favour the cars in incidents the camera can put the blame in the correct place.

With more and more Duty Of Care and Safety requirements being put on business in today’s world an Incident Camera can have a positive effect on a safety record and possibly more importantly keeping vehicles on the road.

Trailer Indicator & Light 12 volt Tester

January 30th, 2013 Comments off

When testing caravans fitted with a 13 pin plug and leisure battery all you do is plug the caravan into the TrailerCheck.

Power is taken from the leisure battery and shown by the reversing lights illuminating. Then simply take the handset control and walk around the van checking the other rear lights and side markers as you go. If there are no faults unplug the TrailerCheck ? job done.   For trailers or caravans with 7 pin systems, plug in the 13 to 7 pin adaptor� and connect the power lead to a suitable 12 volt battery. Then plug the trailer into the TrailerCheck and proceed with the test above.

Where 12V TrailerCheck really scores is when there is a fault.   The TrailerCheck will hold power on the faulty circuit leaving both your hands free while you trace the  problem. Then if you need to work on the circuit you use the handset to switch the power to another light or off altogether. You can then make the repair without risking a short circuit, switch the power to re-do the test without needing to move from the place where you are working.   As there is no need to keep walking back and forth to tow a vehicle, the test and repair times are really very quick even when you have more than one faulty light.

Matthew Burke Stated “Having a 24 volt trailer light tester in the product range we received regualr calls for a 12 volt tester. Adding this excellent simple tester to the product range will offer a service to commercial trailer repairers and light car & van trailer repairers.”
