Inthinc of Salt Lake City announced the waySmart 820 RTS (Real Time Safety) solution designed to create improvements in driving behavior of commercial fleet drivers.

Real-time, in-cab alerts are delivered to drivers to let them know when they are conducting unsafe driving behavior. These alerts prompt them to discontinue actions such as seatbelt violations, aggressive driving and speeding. The system also provides a flexible set of control and management tools for companies to account for assets and the driving records of employees. Management can streamline business with access to the fleet's latest data at any time through a user-friendly Web interface called GAIN (Global Access Information Network).

The product comes equipped with a hand-held device used to provide verbal and text communication from the driver to the company. Messages and functions such as vehicle speed, location, hours of service and other information are displayed for the driver and management as needed.

A variety of reports are available to notify management regarding performance, vehicle positioning and trends. Additionally, if desired, management can receive real-time alerts via phone call, text message or e-mail regarding certain infractions or incidents such as an accident.

Beyond the in-cab mentoring to improve safety, waySmart combines several innovations into the package. These safety features include:
• Speed By Street tracks speed limits on individual roads to know how fast a vehicle should be driving.
• waySmart Zones (advanced geo-fencing)
• SAE J211-compliant crash data recorder
• Automated reporting for instant feedback and trend analysis
