October 01, 2004

A new vehicle tracking and locating system virtually puts managers in the cabs of their trucks. Using wireless telematics, the system keeps track of vehicle locations and displays them on a computer screen. Managers access the system through a website developed by IBM. The system uses an in-vehicle transceiver that communicates via digital mobile phone antennas. A GPS locator uses satellites. System software is run on the fleet's office computers. The system will work with trucks of any make.
