Airmax Remote has entered into a partnership with Sturdy Corporation to provide Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) to businesses operating fleets throughout Europe and North America.
Legislation passed in both the UK and EU means that from 2022, passenger vehicles will be required to use ISA technology as part of the Government’s initiative to reduce excessive speed on roads and improve driver safety.
The new ISA product, known as VMS with SpeedIQ, was created by Airmax Remote and Sturdy for aftermarket retrofit to most vehicles on the road today.
Sturdy and Airmax Remote will combine their respective specialties into one system. Sturdy has experience in automobile safety systems centred on vehicle speed management and Airmax Remote specialises in vehicle tracking, telematics and connected car services.
said: “Previously, providers of telematic services and suppliers of speed limiting hardware rarely interacted if ever. Today we stand to offer something new and innovative that changes this landscape permanently. The integration of Sturdy speed limiting hardware with Airmax Remote connectivity will allow ISA in the form of GPS based variable top speed limiting,” said Chip Vogt, Sturdy Automotive’s product group manager.
Richard Perham, managing director of Airmax Remote, added: “Our technology delivers complete accuracy and definitive reporting to identify savings such as fuel for fleet operators and we will be working with customers to provide insight by accurately monitoring existing fuel usage resulting from analysis of mapping, distances travelled and reasons for the journey.
“In addition, by monitoring driver behaviour, Airmax Remote technology delivers improved driver safety, fleet utilisation and visibility to end user customer thereby a potential reduction in on-the-road incidents for organizations operating fleets of vehicles.”
Both organisations plan to start offering the ISA solution, VMS with SpeedIQ and telematics powered by Airmax Remote this summer.
