PeopleNet has announced two enhancements to its vehicle management system, PerformX. Fault codes, the first enhancement, will enable PerformX to alert fleet maintenance managers of vehicle malfunctions and future maintenance issues wirelessly and in real time. The second, OBD-II (on-board diagnostics), will extend PerformX capabilities to light trucks and vans.
PerformX is the vehicle monitoring module of PeopleNet's g3 system, which connects the on-board computer to the vehicle's engine. It draws data from the engine control module on a vehicle. PerformX reports show managers precisely how a vehicle has functioned and how it was driven.
Fault codes and the OBD-II capability will be available for PeopleNet users at the end of first quarter 2007.
