PeopleNet expands lane departure warning system availability

BOCA RATON, Fla. — PeopleNet has expanded the availability of lane departure warning systems with the addition of offerings from Takata SafeTrak and Mobileye.

The company made the announcement at its PeopleNet User Conference.

“Offering our customers a broad choice of providers helps mitigate one of the major cause of highway fatalities – lane departure due to drowsy, fatigued or distracted drivers,” said Matt Voda, vice-president of product management with PeopleNet. “Fleets using a warning system report a 75% average decrease in truck lane-departure accidents.”

Lane departure warnings systems recognize the difference between the road and lane markings and alert drivers when they are drifting out of their lane. The small unit consists of a camera, on-board computer and software that easily attaches to a windshield, dashboard or overhead console of the vehicle, the company says.

The systems are integrated into PeopleNet’s system, providing fleet managers with the ability to monitor lane departure events and take corrective measures with drivers.
