GeoVision débuts in-vehicle surveillance with Subaru

February 2011 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring

GeoVision SA has designed an in-vehicle surveillance solution that keeps fleet owners in the picture.

GeoVision SA has announced a new tracking and surveillance solution for fleet owners in South Africa. Installed on two Subaru sedans in a pilot project, the solution offers users the ability to track a vehicle via GPS as well as view live video footage from cameras installed in the vehicles.

Says Jacques Taylor, sales manager at GeoVision SA, “With a simple right mouse button click on the vehicle icon in GeoVision’s GIS user interface (UI), supervisors can view the events happening inside a vehicle being tracked. The GeoVision GIS Software can be installed on any PC with an Internet connection. This device will be able to access the data required as long as the vehicles have been configured correctly.”

The GeoVision software functions and looks like any other fleet management UI, but besides the basic user configurable exceptions, such as speeding, driving out of a designated area, lengthy idling and various other events, the software also allows for further integration by enabling various fixed DVRs or NVRs to be monitored within the same UI.

The system allows for the population of the map with user-specific addresses and can be configured as a command-and-control system, also allowing for nearest vehicle or address searches. Users can dispatch a vehicle to an address via SMS, including route instructions. Further integration possibilities are made possible, even to the extent of allowing a user-defined map API.

This ability allows for the integration of further features, including two-way audio, remote control of Pan/Tilt/Zoom cameras access to the onboard recorded video footage and logs, and even licence plate recognition (LPR).

Various installation and configuration options are available from basic 2-camera units to 8-camera systems incorporating LPR and various choices in night viewing including thermal capabilities for both enforcement and night driving safety. Power management solutions are also available for larger configurations to ensure safe and reliable power to both systems and the vehicle itself.

GeoVision also offers solutions for the management and safe archiving of all data captured. Taylor warns that although GeoVision solutions are compatible with any vehicle, warrantees are an important consideration. “It is with this in mind that we sought the cooperation of a partner to showcase the solutions. Subaru with its proven performance and safety was the obvious partner to suit GeoVision’s track record. All Subaru vehicles supplied and fitted with GeoVision solutions carry the full Subaru warranty and maintenance plans.”

Subaru has also a proven track record globally with many fleet vehicles in the private and public sectors, including law enforcement operations from Japan to Australia, Europe and South Africa and government fleets in Africa. Less down time, exceptional reliability and lower cost of maintenance are all contributing factors as a fleet option which simply cannot be ignored.
