PHOENIX. Comtech, a firm that claims extensive experience working with the U.S. Army’s major mobile tracking programs, has released IntelliTruck, described by the company as a feature-rich telecommunications system for fleets to assist in meeting CSA requirements. IntelliTruck, introduced here at the American Trucking Assns. (ATA) Management Conference and Exhibitio, marks the company’s first foray into the commercial trucking market.
The product streamlines reporting requirements while providing a reporting tool for managing driver behavior and fleet optimization, said Comtech.
“Fleet management today is not just about driver safety and regulatory compliance – although of course that’s the industry’s focus given the FMCSA regulations,” said Dan Wood, president of Comtech Mobile Datacom Corporation. “It’s also about doing more with less: sifting through data to get the operational intelligence you need to deploy the right vehicles, efficiently use personnel and other resources, and obtain critical equipment condition checks to improve fleet readiness.”
IntelliTruck is web-based and can generate multiple reports on driver safety, behavior, fuel consumption and vehicle condition.
“By capturing and processing this high quality data that flows from the truck to the base, we enable our truck operating managers to efficiently take on significantly more work with the same sized fleet,” Wood said. “Additionally, by exploiting the new information, truck operators can adapt and prioritize tractor and trailer usage and maintenance on a real-time basis. The operating efficiencies enabled by IntelliTruck provide quantifiable and tangible value in a competitive market and a challenging economic environment.”
The company said its electronic onboard data recorder meets all FMCSA requirements and can read all available vehicle data bus types; and offers cell, WiFi, Bluetooth and satellite communications. It can also host different applications on its architecture with the ability to be upgraded remotely.
