inthinc Adds Touchscreen to Commercial Driving Safety Solution

SALT LAKE CITY — Jan. 4, 2011 — inthinc Technology Solutions Inc., a global company centered on telematics, fleet solutions and driving safety <http://www.inthinc.com> , today announced the introduction of a touchscreen driver interface that works in conjunction with the company’s waySmart commercial driving safety solution. The touchscreen can be used in place of the handheld key pad interface and provides a user-friendly graphical interface, minimizing user interaction to maintain a driver’s concentration on the road.

An increase in FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) inspections and the upcoming CSA 2010 regulations are driving companies to implement an electronic on-board Recorder (EOBR) in each of their fleet vehicles. Some companies are already being required to have electronic logs, so they are looking for a system that will comply with CSA 2010. inthinc has developed its handheld and touchscreen to be compliant and will complete final testing when all regulations are finalized.
Features of the touchscreen include:

  • A new graphical user interface
  • Sleek design that is easy to mount and manage in the truck
  • Displayed hours-of-service logging and reporting with alerts when approaching time limits
  • Constant display of posted speed limit
  • Support for multiple languages

“At inthinc, we have created an electronic log system the way only a safety company can,” said Todd W. Follmer, CEO of inthinc Technology Solutions. “Our touchscreen provides all the functionality that will be needed for CSA 2010 compliance but does so with minimal driver interference so their attention remains on the road.”

inthinc waySmart is a comprehensive driving safety system that changes driver behavior  in real time to improve safety and fleet efficiency.
