Queclink Wireless Solutions, a global provider of IoT devices and solutions, has launched a highly versatile, smart dashcam to meet the diverse and changing needs of the fleet marketplace in the UK. The CV200 offers AI-driven video functionality and comprehensive telematics, alongside the ability to add a secondary camera and integrate with the vehicle’s communication system, to deliver a flexible and affordable video telematics hardware solution.

“The compact and feature-rich design of the CV200 makes it an ideal camera solution for a wide range of fleet and video telematics requirements,” explains Vernon Bonser, UK Sales Director at Queclink Wireless Solutions. “It is AI-enabled, for those looking for ADAS and DSM functionality, while the optional CAN bus integration offers true telematics functionality. The configurability of the device means the device can be adapted to meet the precise needs of the fleet manager, the driver, and the business.”

The CV200 can be used as a standalone forward-facing device or combined with a secondary driver, rear or load camera for added visibility. The two-part design reduces the size of the main unit which in turn enhances driver safety by reducing any obstruction to the driver’s line of vision through the windscreen. It can also be paired with a smart DMS camera to assess the driver’s state of awareness and send an alert if distractions or drowsiness are identified, while the built-in ADAS functionality can detect tailgating as well as forward and pedestrian collisions.

Video capture can switch between continuous loop and event-based recording when unusual movements are identified by the CV200’s built-in accelerometer, or the panic button is pressed. Footage can be requested for download or playback by the user at any time, or alternatively, scheduled for upload via Wi-Fi when available, thereby reducing data costs. With Android-based technology, the device is also always ready, even when the vehicle is parked up with the engine off, so recording can take place within seconds of motion detection. 

CAN bus integration provides information on vehicle status including odometer reading, fuel level, engine speed and temperature, and fault codes to gain greater understanding of performance and usage, bolstering the already robust telematics data. In addition, a door sensor can be used to detect open and close status, making it possible to trigger the recording of loading and unloading or unauthorised access for added security and peace of mind.

“We have used our proven and trusted technology and innovation to develop a LTE CAT6 smart dashcam that leads the way in end-to-end fleet and video telematics, enhancing driver safety while also providing key vehicle and cargo management data. As such, we are working with a growing number of fleet technology specialists, telematics solutions providers (TSPs) and IoT platforms to deliver advanced solutions for the road transport, logistics and fleet sectors,” concludes Bonser.
