LCR 4.0 is enabling Satsafe to build on a previous R&D project as part of the European Space Agency (ESA) business incubation programme where, during a 12 month period, Satsafe worked with the Science and Technology Facilities Council to rapidly prototype and bring to market our first-generation telematics application, GEOBLOC.
This next phase brings new and exciting opportunity. Through our work with the Virtual Engineering Centre and The Hartree Centre co-located with us at Sci-Tec Daresbury, Satsafe is creating TelematiCam™ (right) a GPS-enabled HD camera and smart sensor telematics platform that could have a huge impact on insurance risk management, fleet and logistics operations around the world.
