A Chicago-area company that installs cameras inside trucks to improve safety just raised $4 million in funding.
SmartWitness announced Tuesday that it raised the Series A funding from First Analysis, a Chicago-based VC firm.
Founded in 2007, Schaumburg-based SmartWitness designs in-vehicle cameras and software for trucking fleets. Fleet operators use SmartWitness to record activity from a variety of views to improve safety and assist in insurance matters following accidents or other incidents.
Working with primarily small and medium-sized fleet operators, SmartWitness says it protects more than 250,000 vehicles from 1,500 fleets.
