3rd Eye, a developer of vehicle safety cameras and radar, and Gorilla Safety have entered into an agreement whereby Gorilla Safety’s Electronic Logging Device (ELD) application will be integrated into 3rd Eye’s fleet management platform.
The companies say the new relationship will allow 3rd Eye to better serve its customers with the addition of an integrated ELD.
According to the FMCSA, an ELD automatically records a driver’s time behind the wheel and other hours-of-service (HOS) data. This capability allows for easier, more accurate HOS record keeping, making it simpler for commercial vehicle operators to accurately report. An ELD monitors a vehicle’s engine to capture data on whether the engine is running, whether the vehicle is moving, miles driven and duration of engine operation (engine hours).
“We recognize the importance of ELDs to fleets everywhere and with the impending FMCSA deadline, 3rd Eye is aggressively moving forward to help its client be better prepared for the mandate requirements,” said Mark Walton, chief executive officer and co-founder of Gorilla Safety.
“Developing a certified ELD solution with Gorilla Safety Fleet Management was the right move for 3rd Eye – specifically as we’re rolling out an enhanced suite of digital tools as a direct response to customer demand,” added 3rd Eye President Darrick Reed.
“The beauty of 3rd Eye ELD is its simplicity,” said Reed. “3rd Eye ELD uses a Smartphone to log miles, calculate hours driven and manage documents. It’s a plug-and-play system that takes the stress out of FMCSA compliance.”
The 3rd Eye ELD offering is part of its Enhance Vehicle Behavioral Analytics – a suite of information captured by 3rd Eye cameras, collision avoidance radar, body sensors and chassis data – transmitted via 3rd Eye’s Hurricane Gateway to fleet owners. All data is transmitted through the use of one connection.
