PeopleNet has enhanced its BLU on-board platform, which features a powerful Driver Center display. The company says its BLU platform has been improved to deliver: text-to-speech capability; driver shortcuts; safe-mode options; and in-cab navigation. The PeopleNet BLU platform aims to provide drivers with a powerful, intuitive interface along with an open platform for fleet-specific applications and devices, according to the company. A seven-inch screen displays information and allows drivers to make selections at the touch of a button. So far, more than 35 fleets in Canada and the US are using the system, PeopleNet claims.

TransCore introduced upgrades to its line of GlobalWave satellite tracking products at the recent American Trucking Associations convention. Upgrades to the GlobalWave portfolio include: the Slap & Track mobile terminal with field-replaceable battery packs; a new stop-start sensor for all GlobalWave mobile terminals; and enhancements to the CabLink system including integrated Google maps and optional electronic driver logs. The company says the new options increase the flexibility and choices available to truck fleets, allowing them to select the right combination for their own tracking needs.
