GPSi takes on a new approach to Iridium satellite tracking

Posted by.. | Featured, hardWARE, Press Release, smartWARE | No Comments

The introduction of dual mode Bluetooth technology including BT 4.0 to the Roadscout® device has enabled the introduction of our smartTRAX Iridium satellite tracking technology. smartTRAX provides the RoadScout  product range with ‘grab and go’ satellite connectivity for vehicle telematics in places where GSM coverage is unavailable.

Further enhancing the offering, the smartTRAX device will automatically perform as a personal tracking device when removed from the vehicle ensuring the safety of your ‘lone workers’ in the field.

This seamless and wireless functionality replaces conventional wired solutions and ensures vehicles and staff can be tracked in the most remote locations with confidence. The package provides fleet managers with an opportunity to seamlessly support additional features such as duress alarms and two messaging whilst supporting all aspects of our current IVMS platform  including driver behaviour and vehicle alerts.

Incorporating a long-life lithium rechargeable battery, the durable and shock resistant smartTRAX will provide organisations with a cost-effective option to extend the safe working environment of field staff.

Driver ID smart KEY GPS

Replace your featureless Driver ID keys. GPSi release the smartKEY

Driver ID couples detailed information about a vehicles activity with specific driver activity letting you manage timesheets easily and make sure the right driver is carrying out the work you intended.

Traditionally driver ID keys require an ID reader that is hardwired into the vehicle and in most cases drilling a hole in the vehicles dash. The driver then touches the reader with the keyfob each time they drive the vehicle.

But now GPSi have developed the smartKEY. A new type of device that provides similar functionality but without the physical intervention by the driver. Instead of the driver touching the reader with the fob the RoadScout IVMS device with the built in low energy bluetooth automatically recognises the driver and assigns them to the trip.

It doesn’t stop there. The new smartKEY features duress/panic alert the can be triggered up to approximately 10 metres around the cabin of the vehicle. Again this feature is traditionally a switch that is hardwired in the cabin.

Both the smartKEY & smartWATCH allows you to identify and reward efficient and safe drivers as well as identify development opportunities in others. The smartKEY helps you manage your resources and maintain your duty of care by linking records on driving licenses that help ensure drivers only drive vehicles they’re qualified for. And alerts can let you know when unidentified or unqualified drivers are moving your vehicles for extra peace of mind.

Double the insight with individual driver and vehicle tracking. In a mobile workforce, being able to isolate driver data and vehicle data is paramount. The smartKEY solution is invaluable to any business that operates a pool of vehicles across multiple drivers.

The smartKEY also hosts an internal buzzer to help drivers receive feedback on their driving style in real-time. This enables customers to manage improvements in driver and vehicle performance and, in turn, reductions in fuel consumption, carbon emissions and accident rates.
