Orbcomm adds camera analytics, sensors to its truck telematics solution

Orbcomm Inc. announced that it has added new feature enhancements to its data-driven truck telematics solution to improve the visibility, efficiency, safety and experience for fleets, drivers and their customers. Orbcomm unveiled its innovative technology during a press conference at the American Trucking Association’s (ATA) Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) Annual Meeting.

The solution’s new features

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. Orbcomm is also partnering with Noregon to help customers achieve greater savings on vehicle maintenance and increase uptime with their TripVision software and is adding trailer maintenance to provide a complete picture of fleet health.

Cargo Camera Sensor: Orbcomm continues to enhance its portfolio of camera and video intelligence solutions with the launch of its new Cargo Camera sensor. Orbcomm’s latest camera technology identifies the status of a trailer with images that show load and unload progress, load shift, cargo or asset damage, dunnage and clean out 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. The sensor can capture, store and transmit hundreds of images, according to Orbcomm.

Tractor ID Sensor for Refrigerated Trailers: Leveraging Orbcomm’s Bluetooth and radar filtering technology for its Tractor ID sensor targeted for dry vans, this new sensor integrates with Orbcomm’s refrigerated trailer solution. By validating that drivers are transporting the correct refrigerated cargo to the correct location on time, Orbcomm’s Tractor ID sensor helps to prevent the loss of revenue due to increased fuel usage from wasted driving hours and cargo spoilage, the company noted.
