CORALVILLE, IOWA OCTOBER 8, 2010: ISE Fleet Services will unveil its new product family, eFleetSuite, at the FMCSA’s Safety Technology Showcase event on October 14, 2010. Wireless Roadside Inspection (WRI) demonstrations will be shown using the company’s EOBR solution set. The event is being held at the Greene County Tennessee Inspection Station (near Bulls Gap, Tennessee). Anne Ferro, FMCSA Administrator, will be the keynote speaker.
In partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory and John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, ISE Fleet Services will demonstrate an end-to-end WRI system capable of inspecting a commercial motor vehicle as it comes into contact with a fixed inspection station. A component of eFleetSuite, the WRI interface (developed by ISE) residing on the in-cab device detects the station via a geofence and sends the 7 or 8 day on board driver log history to the FMCSA database.
“ISE’s team worked diligently and delivered a quality product on time that is helping us greatly through this phase of the WRI project. ISE’s experienced team was very dedicated to an efficient, accurate and robust system working with our team to improve the overall capabilities of the system. This resulted in ISE being the first company ever to successfully send a vehicle-born WRI message to the FMCSA database.” said Gary Capps, Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Technical Director for the Commercial Motor Vehicle Roadside Technology Corridor (CMVRTC).
ISE partnered with Greene Coach Tours, Greeneville, TN, for the WRI pilot to deploy the eFleetSuite solution including the WRI interface. Greene Coach buses were equipped with the in-cab device using eFleetSuite mobile applications enabling 395.15 compliant driver logs and electronic driver vehicle inspection reports.
“Our drivers were impressed with the EOBR ease of use and its ability to automatically determine driving periods. They benefited from knowing the real time available driving hours to stay compliant. The workflow and integration between the electronic driver logs and driver vehicle inspection reporting applications is unique and ensures that needed information for safety compliance and vehicle maintenance is consistently captured,” said Russell Ooten, owner Greene Coach Tours.
ISE Fleet Services’ eFleetSuite is a customizable, modular and scalable end-to-end solution that is easy to deploy and easy to use for automation of safety and compliance. The system includes the mDash 4, a low cost rugged in-cab EOBR that contains the mobile component of eFleetSuite. This component acts like the “safety manager” that is present with drivers in real time to help them stay within safety and compliance parameters (HOS, current documentation, potential speeding violations, etc…. Roadside inspections are aided by providing information for a clean inspection that leads to a good driving record and an improved fleet CSA2010 score. The mDash 4 communicates wirelessly using a robust communications system over a nationwide cellular network. Safety compliance officers, fleet managers, dispatchers and maintenance personnel will use eFleetSuite’s web application for real time and paperless compliance and resource management.
eFleetSuite is available for fleets in December, 2010 through ISE Fleet Services. eFleetSuite is deployed on ISE Fleet Services’ new EOBR, mDash 4. The mDash 4 is an easy-to-install, self-contained EOBR using touch screen technology that is rugged and meets FMCSA 395.16 environmental and connectivity specifications.
