Telematics company Masternaut has paired up with vehicle CCTV firm Smartwitness to offer integrated telematics and camera technology to improve fleet driver safety.
The joint offering will integrate the existing telematics software with dashboard cameras providing a defense against 'crash for cash' scams and not at fault claims.
According to the companies, the footage filmed through the Smartwitness camera is high-enough quality to be admissible in court.
"The camera evidence provided through the Smartwitness technology is a huge help for drivers who have a vehicle accident, whether it's for insurance purposes or defending false claim by another driver," said Alex Rothwell, chief technology officer at Masternaut.
He added: "Demand for camera integration in cars, vans and lorries is increasing, and we're glad to deliver further safety enhancements that are both preventative and retrospective by offering integrated Smart Witness cameras to Masternaut customers across the market."
