MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — PeopleNet has partnered with SafeKey, to provide what it says is the first system from an industry technology provider to offer asset protection and driver well-being monitoring.

The new offering is based on a key fob that includes a panic button a driver can press from up to 100 feet away from the tractor.

It notifies fleet management of a situation that could jeopardize the safety of a driver or vehicle.

“The SafeKey system provides our customers another safety-management tool for safeguarding both drivers and vehicles,” said PeopleNet senior vice-president Rick Ochsendorf. “The GPS-enabled key-fob ‘check’ module is like a portable insurance policy for supporting a driver’s personal safety, and minimizing vehicle and cargo theft. SafeKey also provides an optional impairment configuration to strengthen CSA compliance.”

Fleet management, upon receiving an alert, can then remotely disable the vehicle.
