Sept. 3, 2013: Fleet Tracking Device Monitors Aggressive Driving

Nextraq’s Newest Device Offers Capabilities Beyond Vehicle Tracking

September 3, 2013
ATLANTA — NexTraq®, a leading GPS fleet tracking and asset management company, has announced the availability of its VT-2400 series, devices that go beyond vehicle tracking to monitor aggressive and dangerous driving behaviors such as harsh braking, cornering, and jackrabbit starts. In addition, NexTraq offers Tamper Shield™ to cover device cables to prevent tampering and ensure an accurate reading.

The VT-2400 tracks in one-minute intervals and comes with a built-in accelerometer which lets business owners and fleet managers proactively monitor driver behavior and gain a thorough understanding of how their drivers are using their vehicles. NexTraq’s associated Driver Safety Scorecard Report can show the results of vehicle “events” for further driver coaching.

In combination with the accelerometer, the new NexTraq device also offers gyroscope technology to ensure precise tracking of a vehicle’s movements. Customers are able to set up pre-defined thresholds for events and review the Driver Safety Scorecard Report to help increase driver safety and reduce the number of driver-related accidents.

The device offers battery backup and an internal antenna for further prevention of tampering and is available on the 3G network for better coverage and reliability and allow for growth to 4G technology.

Mike Scarbrough, CEO of NexTraq, said, “The new vehicle tracking devices take our hardware offerings to the next level. We researched and developed this device to ensure we can provide the most advanced hardware offering in the telematics industry. Our ability to manufacture and quality control these devices ensures our customers get the highest quality hardware on the market.”
