ATLANTA, Ga. — Airo Wireless, Inc. recently announced that they have assisted Clear Technologies in the integration of an Emergency On-board Communications solution for Coach USA, LLC’s (CUSA) ground transportation vehicles throughout the U.S.
The new GPS technology provides highly accurate location data and will enable tracking of CUSA’s 1,500 passenger buses for emergency services if needed. The Benefon Trackbox provided by Airo Wireless works in conjunction with Beta Trac asset monitoring software, Criticom International’s central station alarm monitoring and emergency response services and T-Mobile’s wireless communications service to provide increased security for CUSA’s drivers and passengers.
"This project is a great example of Airo’s mobile security services for transportation companies," said Jeoff Moore, Vice President of Sales for Airo Wireless, the provider of Benefon mobile location devices in the U.S. "CUSA’s headquarters can now know the geographic location of each of their vehicles, and the vehicles’ drivers have the added security of being able to get immediate emergency assistance wherever they are."
The Benefon devices installed in each bus allow drivers to talk with dispatchers, send emergency text messages with the location coordinates of the bus to the CUSA’s dispatch facilities and/or the Criticom International emergency services central station monitoring facility.
"Our goal from the beginning was to install a comprehensive communications solution that could improve overall passenger safety while meeting new TSA mandates," said Rance Knisley, Manager of Corporate Infrastructure for Coach USA, LLC.
