Maven Machines, inventors of The Maven Co-Pilot Smart headset for driver safety, announced a new line of products aimed at improving safety, efficiency, and regulatory compliance for trucking fleets. Maven has developed a new Smartsense IoT platform to make the company a full Fleet Management System (FMS) provider that includes ELD compliance.
The new architecture is built on Plug-n-Play hardware, Android and iOS mobile devices, and real-time cloud dashboards for management.
Maven developed the trucking industry’s first wearable safety device. Its smart headset pre-warns drivers about fatigue and distraction based on head motion, mirror-check rate, and focus.
The company’s new fleet management platform ties together driver performance, GPS and vehicle engine data for safety, fleet efficiency and regulatory compliance.
“Maven Machines is pioneering a new era of technology in trucking by focusing on connected mobile devices and a scalable cloud framework,” said Avishai Geller, CEO. “We believe in a culture of transparency and automation for drivers. Maven’s smart headset is now one part of our intuitive driver UI and differentiated fleet management system.”
Featuring a mesh network of over 20 sensors inside the truck, Maven provides 1-second precision for all measurements that include speeding, hard-braking, idling, fatigue, distraction, mirror-checks, and weather, along with automated legal compliance for ELD, DVIR, and California Labor law.
“Maven was easy to set up for my safety staff and terminal managers and now we all share visibility to real-time telematics,” said Rhonda Yost, vice president of OSHA & Regulatory Compliance at PGT Trucking based in Pittsburg, Penn.
Maven says the new management platform is built around flexible metrics and groups with a design that streamlines creation of custom alerts and virtual driver segments by operational roles such as terminal, truck-class, cargo-type, driver-type, seniority, risk, etc.
Drivers are provided with a smartphone or tablet, a Maven Co-Pilot Smart Bluetooth headset or earbud, and a plug-n-play wireless J1939 Vehicle Data Adapter (VDA). The bundled solution is available for purchase immediately at Maven’s new website: www.mavenmachines.com.
