Telematics: Minorplanet enhances its MIgreenlight system

Telematics solutions provider Minorplanet Systems has enhanced its MIgreenlight product portfolio with the launch of its latest generation Data Collection Unit (DCU).

The AEM6000 is a vehicle communications hub with a number of features, ranging from internet and email access through a touchscreen and mini-computer, hands-free voice communications and sat-nav.

It also offers direct connectivity to on-board systems like weighing and temperature controls and internet-capable devices such as laptops and PDAs, allowing internet, intranet and back office integration.

Automatic daily ‘health checks’ are carried out by a central Minorplanet server in order to monitor the quality of the data being transmitted by each unit.

In addition to its live tracking capabilities, the AEM6000 can be used in a number of applications such as job allocation, navigation and driver-to-base communications.

An optional Accelerometer measures force in terms of heavy braking and harsh acceleration, hard cornering and rollover to help the fleet manager to identify and correct driver style.
