Geofencing will be added to the InSight trailer tracking system in two stages, according to developer SkyBitz. The new feature will allow fleets to set geographic boundries for trailers and automatically receive notification when they enter or leave those areas.
In the first phase, in addition to arrival and departure notices, trailers can be automatically locked down when they leave a designated area.
Later this year, SkyBitz's geofencing will allow fleets to monitor route movements and automatically alert fleets it the unit deviates from the planned route or leaves predetermined boundries. Alerts can be sent to email accounts, pagers or wireless PDAs. www.skybitz.com
