Industry experts to discuss in-vehicle technology benefits and challenges at road safety event

Road safety charity Brake is urging companies to look at in-vehicle technology as a means to tackle road risk and improve the safety of their fleet, and is running a webinar on the topic to share best practice.

The webinar, free for attendees thanks to sponsorship from MiX Telematics, is a must for fleet operators looking for cost-effective ways to improve safety.

In-vehicle technology can offer huge benefits to fleets by providing valuable data on drivers, vehicles and journeys which can be used to help prevent crashes and reduce costs. In light of this, Brake is offering fleet professionals the opportunity to hear from academic experts and experienced practitioners on the options available, features to look for to ensure driver safety, and how to work with your drivers to get the best from technology.

Speakers will explain the benefits to fleets of adopting in-vehicle technologies and how managers can find the most suitable products for their fleet. Best practice case studies will show how companies have successfully introduced in-vehicle technologies to reduce risks to drivers and other road users.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Sharon Newnam, senior research fellow, Monash Injury Research Institute (MIRI)
  • Wayne Fee, Head of Global Sales, MiX Telematics
  • Paul McNoe, CEO, Red Bus

The webinar will take place from 2pm-3.30pm NZDT on Tuesday 17 November 2015. Find out more and book your place online, or contact Brake on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or +64(0)21 407 953.

Lianna Giuffre, Head of Sales and Marketing at MiX Telematics Australasia, said: "With fleet drivers 50% more likely than other drivers to be hurt or killed in road crashes*, fleet owners are under mounting pressure to take corrective action and improve safety levels.
