The Fuel Tank Lock is a locking device developed to mitigate occurrences of vandalized fuel tanks and stolen fuel. The unique design of the Fuel Tank Lock allows it to lock from inside the tank. Security is guaranteed with the new locking concept because of its ABLOY key system, which is the same key system used in many high security facilities such as government buildings, ATM machines and airports. The Fuel Tank Lock has been tested under severe climate and road conditions to meet all of the requirements of the trucking industry. For more information, visit www.fueltanklock.com.
DriveCam, a global driver risk management company, has developed an event recorder in an effort to improve the way people drive. DriveCam’s palm-sized, exception-based video event recorder is mounted on the windshield and captures sights and sounds inside and outside the vehicle. Exceptional forces such as hard braking, swerving and collisions, cause the recorder to save seconds of audio and video footage immediately before and after the triggered event. Saved event clips can be downloaded, analyzed, assigned a risk score and used to provide driver coaching. For more information, visit www.drivecam.com.
