Meritor WABCO Vehicle Control Systems now offers SafetyDirect, immediately available for fleets looking to simplify delivery of detailed trend data as well as instant notification of vehicle safety and performance.

By integrating data from the company’s SmartTrac and OnGuard active safety systems into Iteris’ SafetyDirect and lane-departure warning systems, users gain a single point of access to monitor and synchronize driver performance. There are reports on braking, stability control, following distances, collision safety system braking and lane-departure warnings for individual drivers as well as the entire fleet. The reporting covers event location, date, time, speed, and odometer reading and includes safety trending data.

Iteris’ SafetyDirect is an online application for analyzing data generated by the company’s data logger and lane-departure warning system. It uses information transmitted from the vehicle by the fleet’s onboard mobile communications system via leading telematic providers such as Qualcomm (Shaw) and PeopleNet.

SmartTrac is a suite of active safety systems that can help a driver in maintaining control of the vehicle when faced with an impending loss of directional or roll stability.

OnGuard is a forward-looking radar-based collision safety system that can detect objects in a vehicle’s path and automatically engage the throttle, engine retarder, and/or service brakes when it senses an impending collision.

Iteris LDW is a lane-departure warning system that uses a camera and onboard computer to track visible lane markings and detect when a vehicle drifts toward an unintended lane change.
