SASKATOON, Sask. — International Road Dynamics (IRD) has partnered up with Siemens VDO Automotive to provide on-board computers and diagnostic software for commercial vehicles.
The Siemens technology consists of an in-cab reporting system, in-vehicle sensors and a radio frequency transmitter. This allows drivers and fleet managers to monitor driver performance.
Siemens claims the system improves fleet performance by re-enforcing proper driving techniques.
Under the arrangement, IRD will provide integration of Siemens’ VDO systems and will provide installation and after-sales support.
Terry Bergan, president and chief executive officer of IRD, says “This important agreement leverages our significant presence in the vehicle safety marketplace, and is consistent with our strategy to increase sales and profits by expanding in related markets where we have developed strong customer and industry relationships. In addition, the agreement allows us to work with the Siemens VDO team on a global basis, and to extend our relationship into other product areas, specifically those that meet the extensive need for Homeland Security.”
