We are excited to share with you the latest development in our efforts to enhance road safety – the Helios Tracker Speed Limiter. This innovative solution is designed to curb speeding on Kenyan roads and promote safer driving practices for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists.


The implementation of speed limiters has been a significant focus in reducing accidents and improving road safety. With the introduction of the KS 2295:2018 standard, which came into effect on 1st April 2014, measures were put in place to address the challenges faced during the initial implementation phase.


At Helios Tracker, we have been at the forefront of this important initiative. Our advanced technology, exemplified by our flagship product, the Helios Advance unit, has played a pivotal role in this project. With over 20,000 units installed for speed recording, we have helped ensure compliance with all the regulatory requirements outlined in the KS 2295:2018 standard.


The Helios Advance unit fulfils the vital requirements for an effective speed limiter system, including:


  1. Speed Recording: Our advanced technology accurately records vehicle speeds, providing essential data for monitoring and analysis.

  2. Offline Data Storage: The unit securely stores recorded data offline, facilitating easy retrieval and analysis when required.

  3. Transmission to Authority Servers: Our system enables seamless communication and data transfer, ensuring speed data is transmitted to the appropriate authorities as mandated.

  4. Instant Printing: We offer the capability for instant printing of relevant reports, providing real-time information for authorities.

  5. Instant Reports: Helios Tracker provides comprehensive and instant reports, enabling quick decision-making and efficient monitoring.



The Helios Tracker Speed Limiter offers several advantages that positively impact road safety, vehicle efficiency, and environmental conservation:


  1. Improved Road Safety: By enforcing speed limits, our system promotes safer driving practices, reducing the risk of accidents and enhancing the overall safety of all road users.

  2. Enhanced Fuel Efficiency: Our speed limiter regulates fuel delivery to the engine, optimizing fuel consumption without compromising vehicle performance, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.

  3. Reduced Emissions: Through better fuel efficiency, our system helps decrease carbon dioxide emissions, contributing to a cleaner and greener environment.

  4. Prevention of Over speeding Fines: By ensuring drivers adhere to specified speed limits, our speed limiter solution helps avoid costly over speeding fines.

  5. Proof of Speed: The built-in Speed Recorder accurately records vehicle speeds, providing indisputable evidence in case of any violations. Instant reports further support authorities in validating compliance.

  6. Improved Driving Habits: With the Helios Tracker Speed Limiter installed, drivers can focus on the road and enjoy their journey without the need to constantly monitor and regulate speed. This promotes better driving habits and reduces distractions.

  7. As we continue to work towards a safer road environment, we are proud to have collaborated with major distributors, including Isuzu Kenya and Ethiopia, in implementing the Helios Tracker Speed recorder. Together, we are committed to promoting road safety and providing innovative telematics solutions.
