Crash Detection

As today’s workforce continues to shift to more mobile workforce operations it is getting more difficult for organisations to manage the risks these workers face. It can be hard to know when and where a worker needs help. At Smartrak, we are dedicated to delivering the highest level of safety for your mobile workforce and this extends to your ability to respond to emergencies involving your people and vehicles.

Smartrak’s Crash Detection Alert feature can detect and report when a vehicle is in a crash, providing customers with the ability to maximise their response, either managed internally or via a third-party monitoring company. Alerts are sent via the cellular network or satellite if vehicles are fitted with satellite modems. Offering both cellular and satellite options significantly enhances management’s ability to provide dependable cover, and to respond to driver distress resulting from a vehicle emergency wherever workers are.

Crash Detection - Alerting Managers

The significant trauma resulting from accidents deserves the urgent consideration of all fleet managers.

If your fleet has vehicles operating in remote areas a trusted alert solution that notifies you of accidents is an essential safety requirement. Smartrak has invested in rigorous testing procedures and ongoing evaluation to ensure that our crash detection feature delivers absolute confidence to drivers and fleet managers.

This solution sets the industry standard. Through thousands of deployments, our crash detection feature has proven dependable in the most remote and inhospitable environments in Australasia. Providing peace of mind where it’s needed most.

Evaluating your fleet’s requirement for Crash Detection alerting

Leading Australian universities and road safety partnership programs (supported by state road transport authorities such as VicRoads) have conducted multiple studies of road crashes to understand the leading causes and severity of the crashes. Throughout these studies, it was clear that the threat to life was higher when a crash involved a high impact.


Are your fleet vehicles involved in any of the following?

  • Long journeys
  • Off-road travel
  • Tasks outside of normal working hours
  • Emergency work and callouts

It stands to reason that when drivers have to complete tasks outside of normal driving conditions the risks multiply. Driving on unfamiliar roads, responding to callouts in low-light conditions, and negotiating challenging terrain are all examples of situations where a crash detection alert solution should be in the vehicle. An immediate alert from Smartrak’s crash detection solution generates a quick response from emergency services that can have a significant effect on survivability.

Smartrak’s Crash Detection feature is an essential element in an effective health and safety solution for at risk drivers , but it’s not the only initiative you can employ. Consider these points below for a genuinely comprehensive approach.

  • Plan task scheduling and journey durations to ensure that drivers don’t get fatigued
  • Ensure that fleet managers have access to reporting on driver behaviour, to identify unsafe drivers and to support driver education measures
  • Build vehicle servicing milestones into your operation schedules to ensure that brakes and tyres and other mechanical components are always safe and roadworthy
