Accident ReconstructionResponding to Fleet Accidents
Know When to Fold Them
Information is key when dealing with accident reconstruction and liability. Knowing when to fight a lawsuit and knowing when to settle quickly reduces the overall time and expense of inevitable vehicle accidents. The accelerometer in the GO vehicle tracking device samples g-force events 100 times per second. This hyper sensitive measurement helps paint a picture of vehicle driving behavior and vehicle accident motion during an accident.
Accident Reconstruction with Telematics
Fleetistics has created an emergency notification service to call and text a group of people responsible for fleet safety when a major safety event takes place.
The GO System considers a 2.5 or greater g-force event to be an accident. This is based on movement forward, backward, right or left but not up or down. Collision data is calculated at a rate of 100 Hz or 100 times per second. When a rule is set an alert can be sent to the fleet manager or safety manager to respond to.
How accident data works
