PeopleNet has released the PeopleNet Display.5 (PD.5), an Android-powered fixed-mount in-cab display.
The PeopleNet Display.5 gives customers the option to implement a ruggedized display that enables them to comply with the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate as well as leverage other applications such as navigation and in-cab scanning. Through PeopleNet’s Managed Mobility service, fleets can also manage both business and third-party apps running on the display and provide drivers with remote assistance during support cases and troubleshooting other mobile applications, the company said. The PeopleNet Display.5 also has the flexibility to pair with multiple in-vehicle gateways.
“As we continue our migration to Android, the PD.5 can run both proprietary solutions alongside third-party apps, giving a fleet the ability to customize the driver experience to optimize productivity,” said Bryan Coyne, general manager for North America for Trimble’s Transportation Mobility Division, which includes PeopleNet. “Android software also unifies all of our latest devices, so a fleet can run any combination of fixed-mounted displays, handhelds and consumer-grade devices to meet their business-specific needs.”
