Digital Ally Inc. partnered with ZOLL Medical Corp. to add that company’s RescueNet Road Safety system to Digital Ally’s Video Event Data Recorders (VEDRs). The complete system provides post-incident review video and audio recordings, audible unsafe driving warnings, and driver reports.
When the RescueNet Road Safety system detects driving outside of acceptable parameter ranges, such as excessive speed, rate of acceleration and deceleration, and how the vehicle is driven while cornering, drivers hear an immediate audio warning to take corrective action. The system then triggers Digital Ally’s VEDR to record the incident, including a predetermined length of time before the event to capture what caused the unsafe driving.
Video and optional audio is recorded for a preset length of time in front of as well as inside the vehicle. Unfastened seatbelts, unknown driver activity or a potentially unsafe situation for backing up the vehicle will also trigger audible warnings and recordings. An optional third camera and integrated monitor in the VEDR may be used to record and gain visibility behind the vehicle when backing up, or the camera may alternatively be mounted in another location, such as the patient compartment of an ambulance. Recordings may also be activated through the simple touch of the VEDR button or an optional covert switch.
