CalAmp has established a strategic alliance with the Volkswagen Group’s truck and bus manufacturing division via its subsidiary group LoJack Mexico which seeks to provide the automaker telematics and surveillance video services across its entire range of truck and bus vehicles sold in Mexico.
LoJack Mexico established the partnership with MAN Truck and Bus Mexico to develop a robust and customized connected vehicle solution that focuses on security, improved road safety and operational efficiency for MAN fleet customers and their drivers.
The first phase of the solution deployment will provide real-time video surveillance via in-cab cameras, followed by a second telematics-focused phase delivering critical data on driver behavior, gas consumption, failure codes and other vehicle performance reporting.
LoJack Mexico telematics and surveillance video technology will be installed on the MAN bus and truck assembly line and sold to the Mexican market with plans to expand distribution to other Latin American markets.
In addition, MAN Truck & Bus will offer their customers LoJack Mexico Stolen Vehicle Recovery (SVR) services, the only SVR service supported by law enforcement throughout Mexico.
CalAmp has acquired Car Track, S.A. DE C.V., the exclusive licensee of LoJack technology for the Mexico market.
