"With the increase in technology over the last decade standard telematics is just not enough anymore, people need to know why something happened. Video Telematics gives us that." stated Sean O'Neil, idrive CEO "For example, when a hard-breaking incident occurs was it because a driver was following too close or did a child run into the road? Only video telematics can give managers those answers. Without video you can only guess and hope that you are being given reliable information. Also verified data creates accurate driver scoring and takes away any discrepancies between drivers and company."

Distracted Driving is now the number one concern for fleet owners. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) distracted drivers kill approximately 3,477 people and injure 391,000 each year. Fleet owners are financially liable for accidents while drivers are on the clock. Idrive has been in the business for over 10 years and has listened to the industry. "What was needed is an accurate Video Telematics device that can help reduce accidents and make commercial driving safer and more affordable. Because of this need, Idrive created the X-Series video event recorder with Artificial Intelligence," stated Idrive's Vice President, Curt Andrews.
