Omnitracs has introduced the Intelligent Vehicle Gateway, a single, robust mobile device that it says will offer commercial fleets a unified platform for the efficient use of mobile apps and telematics.
An integrated application delivery system, IVG offers features such as a larger display, better wireless connectivity, and hands-free voice commands.
“IVG seamlessly links drivers to vehicles assets and the home office and allows them to access Omnitracs and third-party applications all in one place, enhancing the driver experience and improving fleet productivity,” says Jimmy Fortuna vice president of product management at Omnitracs.
IVG's connectivity and hands-free options support a wide range of in-cab and out-of-cab mobility applications. With multichannel Bluetooth and Wi-Fi hot spot capabilities, this enables drivers to use any and every one of their smart devices or other wireless- or Bluetooth-enabled components to remain connected to the home office.
With a single connection point to the vehicle data bus, installation of IVG is simpler and faster than legacy multi-unit hardware platforms, according to Omnitracs.
