Cadec Global, a provider of mobile information systems for the transportation industry, has announced that it has been awarded a patent for its Split Screen Global Positioning (GPS) and Electronic Tachograph (ETOG) feature.
Cadec says its ETOG feature offers a combination of second-by-second speed, RPM and location that is viewed on a graphical single screen. “Being able to visually link speed and RPM data with vehicle location in an intuitive manner is a unique feature of the Cadec system that helps customers quickly investigate incidents,” says Bruce Olsen, chief technology adviser for Londonberry, N.H.-based Cadec.
“It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and nothing in the industry gives fleet managers such a powerful picture as ETOG,” says Tom Lemke, Cadec’s executive vice president. “Managers with responsibilities for planning fleet operations now have the ultimate tool to visualize what is really going on with their vehicles. When it comes to accident investigation or public reports of speeding or other poor driving habits, managers now have precise and objective data to make informed decisions.”
