The electronic damage monitor

connect:dt crash detection notifies you of collisions and major shocks incurred by the vehicle. The cause of damage or the person behind the damage can be determined.

Was there an accident? Is there somewhere in the company grounds that’s uneven? Is a driver not driving cautiously enough? With connect:dt crash detection, the time and magnitude of major shocks that may result in damage to a vehicle are logged.
