Geotab announced the launch of its new GO8 LTE fleet management device. Like its predecessor, the GO8 offers advanced GPS technology, G-force monitoring, Geotab IOX expandability, engine and battery health assessments, and in-vehicle audible driver coaching, Geotab said. According to Geotab, the latest GO8 device is designed for fleet management applications and, with the additional speed provided by LTE connectivity, further enables the real-time secure transmission of data from the vehicle to the cloud, and back to the vehicle where in-vehicle driver coaching rules are enabled.
“The speed, efficiency and connectivity of LTE offers fleet managers a telematics solution that they can depend on for years to come,” said Neil Cawse, chief executive officer of Geotab. “With the increasing demand for more sensors in more vehicles, the launch of the GO8 LTE ensures that Geotab’s data continues to be highly reliable, accurate and a trusted source for smart city and connected vehicle planning. LTE is the technology of the future and is receiving very large scale investment by all carriers.”
