Toronto, Ontario -- May 23, 2018 -- AT&T and Fleet Complete have recently announced plans to team up as a charter business member of the Vision Zero Network. The network is designed to help communities eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries through connected vehicle solutions.
With telematics, predictive analytics and near real-time traffic data, AT&T and Fleet Complete will help cities reach their goals of zero traffic deaths and debilitating injuries among drivers, pedestrians, bikers and transit users.
With population spikes and rising traffic congestion in major U.S. cities, there are over 40,000 road fatalities due to collisions every year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
AT&T and Fleet Complete will provide technological capabilities and performance metrics to drive the initiative through connected vehicle solutions that can help address aggressive driving patterns quickly and efficiently.
The AT&T Fleet Complete comprehensive telematics platform will help enable strategies to mitigate dangerous driving behaviours through the Vision Zero Network for first response teams and government agencies. The solution combines safety technologies with detailed reporting in near real-time on speeding, harsh braking, fast acceleration, cornering and crash detection. Moreover, its enhanced predictive analytics will help identify potential unsafe patterns and risks associated with aggressive driving. The platform also delivers in-cab coaching through advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and proactive vehicle maintenance alerts with detailed engine data.
Metropolitan centres like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York, among many others, have already begun blazing the path for Vision Zero by engaging key city agencies such as police, transportation and public health to drive this initiative.
