Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), has announced that its industry-leading AirLinkÂ® MP70 LTE-Advanced vehicle routers now support the most advanced, integrated vehicle telemetry, inertial navigation (dead reckoning), and driver behavior features to improve fleet operations and vehicle maintenance, the company said.
The MP70 router is optimized for the world´s most demanding wireless applications, including public safety, field services and transit. The MP70 provides a high-performance vehicle networking solution to connect multiple high-bandwidth applications in and around the vehicle, while also providing IT departments with the flexibility to manage mobile assets in the cloud or in the enterprise data center using Sierra Wireless AirLink Network Management solutions.
With the upcoming software release (ALEOS 4.9.0), the MP70 will support an integrated vehicle bus interface using a direct cable connection (OBD-II and J1939), so customers no longer need to buy external dongles or scanners to monitor vehicle health. The new release also enables built-in sensors (accelerometer and gyroscope) for inertial navigation to provide precise geo-location capabilities, even in urban canyons and underground garages where satellites can´t be seen. The built-in sensors also provide the ability to monitor driver behavior, including harsh acceleration and braking.
