New feature enhancements to the data-driven truck telematics solution improve the visibility, efficiency, safety, and experience for fleets, drivers, and their customers.
The solution’s new features include:
- Cargo Camera Sensor: ORBCOMM’s latest camera technology enables fleets to save valuable time and eliminate margin of error by immediately identifying the status of a trailer with images that show load and unload progress, load shift, cargo or asset damage, dunnage, and cleanout verification. The device can send images to the back office when the trailer’s door is opened or closed while paired with a door sensor as well as when the driver begins or ends a move for optimal visibility and security. Image capture can be triggered manually from the back office at any time so that dispatch can see the status of the trailer when needed. With its large storage capacity, the sensor can capture, store, and transmit hundreds of images.
- Tractor ID Sensor for Refrigerated Trailers: This new sensor integrates with ORBCOMM’s refrigerated trailer solution to address the costly industry pain point of incorrect tractor-trailer pairing. The ORBCOMM Tractor ID sensor ensures the tractor will connect to the desired trailer while filtering out nearby trailers that could otherwise lead to inaccurate pairings, increasing driver efficiency and retention.
- Safety and Maintenance Integrations: ORBCOMM has completed a new integration with Bendix focused on fleet safety and collision avoidance. Bendix’s software collects and transmits safety data and video of severe events off the vehicle along with driver identification and transforms it into actionable information in real time. With Bendix, ORBCOMM customers can assess driving trends and develop targeted driver training to improve fleet safety and compliance. ORBCOMM is also partnering with Noregon to help customers achieve greater savings on vehicle maintenance and increase uptime with their TripVision software.
