Geotab is integrating its J1939 platform with the Mobileye 560 Advanced Driver Assistance System so heavy duty fleets will be able to use advanced warning alerts to reduce the likelihood of vehicle crashes from occurring, the telematics provider announced.

"Fleet management technology has evolved to include proactive and dynamic solutions that incorporate real time data in the vehicle and in a fleet's operations to predict and alert both safety and efficiency elements of fleets," said Edward Kulperger, Geotab's vice president of business development.

In addition to the reports provided by Mobileye and Geotab that target unsafe driving practices, the solution also provides lane departure warnings, forward collision warnings, pedestrian and bicyclist warnings, distance keeping (headway) warnings, and speeding alerts, according to Geotab.

"With Geotab, we have provided businesses with an unbeatable driver monitoring and evaluation system," said Isaac Litman, Mobileye Inc.'s CEO of Mobileye Aftermarket. "It is the one of the most effective risk management tools available in the marketplace today."

Fleets using this collision avoidance technology typically realize a return on their investment in about eight months, according to Mobileye.

Safe driving habits are significantly improved, costs associated with accidents are reduced or completely avoided, smooth driving patterns are reinforced on a continuous basis, and fuel and maintenance costs are minimized, according to the companies.
