Terion, DriverTech share their technologies
Jun 1, 2006 12:00 PM
Terion Inc and DriverTech Inc will integrate Terion's FleetView 3 trailer tracking system and DriverTech's DT4000 system. The two products will seamlessly share data between the in-cab and trailer systems while the trailer is connected to the tractor-information that has traditionally been gathered and analyzed separately. By delivering both types of data in one format, Terion and DriverTech will provide least-cost routing capabilities and create synergies in event detection and reporting.
FleetView 3 is a trailer fleet management system that helps transportation companies maximize operating efficiencies. The product communicates real-time trailer location and event status when the trailer is tethered or untethered, and provides an accurate record of loaded or unloaded status by way of a patented cargo sensor. Typical benefits associated with FleetView include an increase in trailer utilization and a reduced trailer-to-tractor ratio.
The technology behind FleetView 3 combines a high-bandwidth digital wireless path with intelligent messaging and sensor capabilities. The design also incorporates GPS and digital CDMA cellular technology for seamless coverage. Using patented Terion hardware and software, information is delivered to the user over the Internet and/or through integration with popular dispatch applications. FleetView 3 also supports over-the-air software downloads for upgrades and enhancements. It can be installed on dry vans, flatbeds, and refrigerated trailers, which can be monitored remotely.
