SmartDrive Wins Contract With California CALTRANS

January 10, 2007

SAN DIEGO, CA – SmartDrive Systems Inc. has been awarded a contract with the State of California and the California Department of Transportation (CALTRANS). CALTRANS will begin using SmartDrive’s high-tech video-capture hardware and professional incident review service in the first quarter of 2007. The contract was awarded to SmartDrive following a lengthy competitive bidding process required by the state.

The SmartDrive service captures video events of erratic driving and speeding and then professionally reviews and rates these events for subsequent driver counseling. All video and diagnostic data can be viewed by fleet/risk/safety managers by simply logging on to the SmartDrive secure website.

The SmartDrive in-vehicle unit is mounted behind the rearview mirror and consists of two, tiny cameras: one camera pointing forward and one pointing at the driver. SmartDrive is continuously recording, so events such as a tailgating, swerving, speeding, or a collision are recorded and saved 15 seconds before the event and 15 seconds after it. The SmartDrive system also features multiple panic buttons, which allow the driver to record and document the behaviors or incidents of other drivers or passengers.
