In advance of the Dec. 16 ELD deadline to switch from AOBRD to telematics technology, Konexial has released the DriveLiFE version of its My20 ELD telematics system. My20 is based on and developed with next-generation Edge Computing telematics technology to automatically log a driver’s location, hours-of-service and available capacity—in-cab, independent of connectivity—to fulfill FMCSA compliance rules, the company said.
“This release is a significant advancement in state-of-the-art telematics technology, led by Edge Computing architecture—all data, algorithm and logic analysis is done within the cab on iOS and Android platforms,” said Ken Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Konexial. “My20 DriveLiFE won’t go ‘out-of-service’, as it is protected against data loss and interruption due to network availability and even against cloud-based server downtime. ELD data is always available, keeping drivers compliant at all times.”
My20 DriveLiFE also includes an upgrade to the Drive functions— mapping, routing, points of interest and review—while adding the LiFE stream, functions designed for driver self-improvement in 5 areas: spiritual, financial, social, physical, and environment.
According to Koneaxial, My20 DriveLiFE enhancements include:
• Enhanced Drive Function: Point-of-Interest (POI) and proprietary ratings for Fuel, Parking, Weigh Stations, Rest Areas, Restaurants, and Truck Dealerships
• Truck-specific Turn-by-Turn Directions: Providing drivers with details on tight turns and high-traffic areas in advance of load pick-up/drop-off
• Proprietary Dock411 Dock Information: Loading Dock details including wait times, weight limits, parking situations and load/unload procedures
• LiFE–Curated Content Stream: Serving drivers with content designed for self-improvement, from a spiritual, financial, social, physical, and environment perspective.
