Mack Trucks Inc. today introduced InfoMax Wireless, an information management and utilization system designed to help fleets cut operating expenses.
Using Wi-Fi short-range wireless technology, InfoMax Wireless allows fleet managers to extract key performance information from their trucks without physically connecting to the actual vehicles.
As the vehicle enters the property, an SRW Module mounted out-of-sight under the dash automatically transmits information from DataMax, Mack’s onboard data logger, to a network access point (NAP) located within the terminal building.
The NAP receives the information from the truck and forwards it to the customer’s computer network. InfoMax software then sorts, analyzes, plots or reports the information.
A single NAP can handle as many as 127 trucks, eliminating the task of connecting a PC unit to each vehicle to access DataMax information. InfoMax Wireless is available on Mack Vision, Granite and CH models.
