PeopleNet has debuted an in-cab display called the PeopleNet Display.5, an Android-powered fixed mount display designed specifically for the trucking industry.

“The introduction of the PeopleNet Display.5 provides customers with additional choices and flexibility when selecting an in-cab display,” said Bryan Coyne, general manager, North America for Trimble’s Transportation Mobility Division, which includes PeopleNet. “The PD.5, much like our Android-based tablets, lays the foundation for the next-generation of fleet mobility and helps our customers transform their drivers’ experience.”

The PeopleNet Display.5 gives customers the option to implement a ruggedized display offers Electronic Logging Device mandate compliance as well as other applications such as navigation and in-cab scanning.

Through PeopleNet’s Managed Mobility service, fleets can also manage both business and third-party apps running on the display and provide drivers with remote assistance during support cases and troubleshooting other mobile applications.

The PeopleNet Display.5 can pair with multiple in-vehicle gateways for a customizable solution that uses 4G LTE connectivity.

“As we continue our migration to Android, the PD.5 can run both proprietary solutions alongside third-party apps, giving a fleet the ability to customize the driver experience to optimize productivity,” said Coyne. “Android software also unifies all of our latest devices, so a fleet can run any combination of fixed-mounted displays, handhelds and consumer-grade devices to meet their business-specific needs.”
