International Truck and Engine's AWARE Telematics System Receives Industry Award

February 07, 2006

WARRENVILLE, IL – Frost & Sullivan has awarded the International Truck and Engine Corp. the 2006 Industry Innovation and Advancement of the Year Award in the medium-heavy truck original equipment market. International is the first truck and bus manufacturer to offer a comprehensive telematics solution for buses and medium- and heavy-duty vehicles.The award recognized International’s development of the International AWARE Vehicle Intelligence solution. The system incorporates GPS technology to track the exact position of vehicles and uses in-vehicle monitors to relay key operating data, all through secure wireless networks. A “geo-fence” feature alerts fleet managers with an automatic e-mail or text message if a vehicle enters or leaves a pre-designated region. In emergency situations, drivers can immediately com-municate with the fleet operations control center by pressing a “driver alert switch” — an on-board alarm button to alert fleet operations to a potential issue with the vehicle or concern with security a driver may be experiencing. The system also helps streamline maintenance by monitoring key vehicle parameters like fuel usage, battery voltage, and engine hours.
