Konexial launches My20 DriveLiFE with in-cab edge computing

Jan. 2, 2020
Konexial recently released the DriveLiFE version of its My20 ELD, which was developed with next-generation edge computing telematics technology.

Konexial recently released the DriveLiFE version of its My20 ELD, which was developed with next-generation edge computing telematics technology.

The new system, introduced in advanced of the Dec 16 deadline to switch from AOBRDs to electronic logging device (ELD) telematics, is designed to automatically log a driver’s location, hours-of-service and available capacity—in-cab, independent of connectivity—to fulfill FMCSA compliance rules, the company said.

“This release is a significant advancement in state-of-the-art telematics technology, led by Edge Computing architecture—all data, algorithm and logic analysis is done within the cab on iOS and Android platforms,” said Ken Evans, chief executive officer at Konexial. “My20 DriveLiFE won’t go ‘out-of-service,’ as it is protected against data loss and interruption due to network availability and even against cloud-based server downtime. ELD data is always available, keeping drivers compliant at all times.”

My20 DriveLiFE also includes an upgrade to the Drive functions—mapping, routing, points of interest and review—while adding the LiFE stream, functions designed for driver self-improvement in five areas: spiritual, financial, social, physical and environment.

My20 DriveLiFE enhancements include:

  • Enhanced drive function: Point-of-interest (POI) and proprietary ratings for fuel, parking, weigh stations, rest areas, restaurants and truck dealerships
  • Truck-specific turn-by-turn directions: Providing drivers with details on tight turns and high-traffic areas in advance of load pick-up/drop-off
  • Proprietary Dock411 dock information: Loading dock details, including wait times, weight limits, parking situations and load/unload procedures
  • LiFE–Curated Content Stream: Serving drivers with content designed for self-improvement, from a spiritual, financial, social, physical and environment perspective

“The My20 LiFE—Curated Content Stream includes content from leading Christian ministries and organizations, including daily devotionals from Boyd Bailey and Wisdom Hunters to inspire and comfort drivers while out on long runs away from their families,” Evans said.

My20 DriveLiFE version is free and currently available in the Apple App store, and will be available in the Google Play store by Dec 31, Konexial said.
