Vehicle mounted camera with GPS for evidence capture

Y3K (Europe) : 08 September, 2009  (New Product)
The Smart Witness Vehicle Journey Recorder can be used for route monitoring, recording driver behaviour or for capturing evidence in the event of an accident
Vehicle mounted camera with GPS for evidence capture
The Smart Witness Vehicle Journey Recorder incorporates the latest CCTV and GPS data recording technology. The unit simply mounts on to a vehicle windscreen and requires no tools for installation. With the Smart Witness Vehicle Journey Recorder motorists can capture accidents & dangerous driving and fight incorrect speeding fines or convictions, helping drivers to protect their no claims bonus and licence. When used in commercial vehicles the unit captures poor driving, unauthorised use of company vehicles and provides vital evidence in the event of an accident.

The unit is extremely compact measuring just 3.19in x 1.97in and mounts onto the windscreen behind the rear view mirror. No tools are required for installation and it can be moved between vehicles.

The unit has a built-in high resolution wide angle CCTV camera, designed to record the view directly in front of the windscreen (for front and rear coverage two units can be used in the same vehicle). It records this CCTV footage directly on to SD card along with GPS data (which provides details of the vehicles speed, location and direction of travel). In addition to this the unit has a 3G shock sensor designed to both trigger recording in the event of an accident (the unit can be also be set to record continuously if required) and to provide data about the braking force, acceleration force and general quality of driving.

Smart Witness say their Vehicle Journey Recorder acts like a black box for motorists allowing them to supply evidence in the event of a car accident or other event on the road. The unit is easy to use and can be tailored to record continuously or when the G-Sensor measures a pre-determined amount of G-force. To ensure that no vital evidence is lost the unit features a buffer which records 15 seconds prior to the G-Sensor being triggered and 5 seconds after.

The unit is supplied with a 2GB SD Card and will operate with compatible cards up to 32GB, allowing a continuous recording time of around 40 hours, when the memory is full the unit will overwrite or alert the user. The SD card can be easily removed and will connect to a Windows PC via USB (using the USB SD Card Reader supplied). The powerful Smart Witness Analysis Software provided will playback recordings and shows the vehicle direction and location on the embedded Google Maps display. It will also allow searching of the data by time/date, speed or amount of G-force. The software is further enhanced with one touch reporting which will show report title, subject, speed, location, and map and snapshot image of the accident or incident. The software also allows easy exporting of required video footage as an AVI file which will play in standard media players and exporting of the whole journey to Google Earth, allowing you to see the whole route quickly and easily.



Roy Woodman, Smart Witness Product Manager for Y3K (Europe) Limited the UK distributor of the unit said "The range of uses for this fantastic little unit are endless, as well as being used to provide motorists with vital evidence of what really happened in an accident, it has been shown to improve driver behaviour resulting in fewer accidents and convictions, it can provide proof against incorrect Speeding Fines and Convictions and for the commercial sector it allows Fleet Managers & Companies to monitor journeys, routes taken by employees, Excessive Speeding, Acceleration and Breaking, and in a world looking to reduce its carbon footprint and improve efficiency, the Vehicle Journey Recorder can provide vital data which can be analysed and then used to implement improvements"

The Vehicle Journey Recorder will be available in the UK from September 1st priced at £199.99 for the non GPS version and £299.99 for the GPS version, for further details including sample footage and details of stockists, visit.
