Redefine safety with relative speed vehicle tracking data

Learn about Quartix’s SafeSpeed Database and the benefits it brings to your driver behaviour monitoring

Use contextual speed to build a complete picture of driver performance

In this guide, you’ll discover:

  • The difference between legal speed and safe speed
  • Why relative speed is a better threshold for your vehicles
  • The uniqueness of the SafeSpeed Database
  • How you can use relative speed to improve safety

SafeSpeed Database

What is it?

Our software analyses a staggering 30 million data points from Quartix-tracked vehicles every day, and then matches this speed data with UK road segments. We can calculate the speed most users are actually travelling on the roads and compare it the posted limit.

SafeSpeed Database

Why use it?

A lot of the time, the posted speed limit and the safe speed for a section of road are completely different, especially on rural roads.  For example, if the posted limit for a particular road is 60mph, but most users travel at 45mph, someone driving at 55mph is technically legal, but may not be driving safely for that area.

“We’ve seen around a 20% improvement in driving style across the fleet. We’re doing daily briefings with the drivers and they can easily see how their driving style has improved.”
