E-Smart, a fleet safety software development company, had created a application which features intelligent speed adaptation, low bridge collision prevention and remote vehicle immobilization. The app will be accessible to Platform Science customers via the company’s marketplace later this fall.
The E-Smart app uses GPS technology to determine vehicle location to actively manage its maximum allowed speed, provide real-time safety alerts, and identify known hazard areas such as low clearance bridges.
If and when a driver approaches an area of concern, they will receive an immediate notification to their in-cab mobile device and the vehicle will be limited to idle.
Fleets that have integrated the E-Smart technology have reported a significant decrease in speed-related infringements and accidents, and an savings among toll-related fines, Platform Science officials said in a press release.
‘’E-Smart is gaining tremendous momentum in our mission to improve road safety,” said Mathieu Boivin, CEO at E-Smart, in a press release. “We are showing the industry that intelligent speed adaptation, an active technology, is the solution for speed-related incidents with proven reduction results of over 90%.”
