Qualcomm and Instructional Technologies Inc. announced that they are collaborating to provide ITI's Pro-Tread Training Series on the Qualcomm Mobile Computing Platform 200 Series (MCP200).


ITI's interactive Pro-Tread In-Cab training will increase driver efficiency and productivity by enabling drivers to complete safety, regulatory and hazardous materials (hazmat) training during periods of non-driving downtime via a high quality in-cab multimedia experience.

The MCP200 is designed to increase transportation company revenue by enabling drivers to provide better customer service and by enhancing in-cab productivity. An addition to the Qualcomm Mobile Computing Platform product line originally launched in September 2006, the MCP200 delivers an expanded set of award-winning OmniVisionSM Transportation Services, adding Wi-Fi, in-cab training, Internet access and multi-mode capability.

ITI's Pro-Tread training applies in-cab training technology, first developed for advanced pilot training, to the trucking industry. ITI provides sophisticated, interactive driver training to some 185 fleets in the U.S. and Canada, either at fleet terminals or anywhere via the Internet.

"The Qualcomm/Pro-Tread collaboration allows a company's drivers to receive safety training in a timely manner, which could help to prevent accidents before they happen and decrease the company's liability," said Norm Ellis, vice president of transportation and logistics sales and service for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. "By collaborating with industry leader ITI to include their solution on the MCP200, we can now offer our customers a more efficient training solution."

Pro-TREAD will be available on the MCP200 when the platform becomes
commercially available in summer 2009.
