The release of the D411 GPS tracking system by Blue Sky Network will make it easier for fleet managers to locate their vehicles in remote areas where cell coverage can be limited, the company said. The Iridium-based D411, the company's simplest and most affordable satellite tracking solution yet, is designed for fleets that regularly operate in remote areas. Integrated with Blue Sky Network's SkyRouter Web portal, vehicles using the D411 can be viewed quickly and in near real-time by fleet managers. Also, companies with other air, land or sea assets being monitored via SkyRouter can view all their assets on the same online screen.
“The D411 marks a significant step forward for communication and safety of remote projects by finally offering fleet managers a cost-effective means for global fleet management,” said Jon Gilbert, president, founder and CEO of Blue Sky Network. “We are extremely pleased that the D411 aligns with our continued goal of providing fleet tracking and management to all transportation assets.”
Fleet managers are able to constantly monitor driver routes and locations through automatic position reports at user-defined intervals. The D411 also provides inputs for monitoring vehicle activities such as lights on, vehicle on/off or other telematic data. Additionally, integrated Bluetooth makes two-way messaging possible via Bluetooth-equipped smartphones or PDAs with the future release of Blue Sky's smartphone messaging application.
