Motorola unveils its new VC6096 in-vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer. This rugged all-in-one solution is designed to help maximize driver productivity, reduce costs, and improve customer service. Built to withstand the rigors of everyday use on the road, the new VC6096 offers comprehensive wireless voice and data capabilities for transportation and logistics providers.
This in-vehicle/fixed-mount mobile computer enables the collection of businessessential data, including mileage, location, driver performance, and vehicle metrics like hours of service and arrival and departure times. By enabling organizations to more quickly, easily, and accurately capture relevant driver and vehicle data, enterprises can reduce paperwork and increase efficiency by automating the driver logs, time cards, and highway fuel tax reports.
With integrated GPS, the VC6096 provides the asset visibility needed to support real-time location-based applications from directions for drivers to fleet location for dispatchers. Simultaneous voice and data connections via 3.5G WAN connectivity on the GSM network can improve productivity and customer service. The ability to provide route optimization can also reduce the number of miles traveled while helping to ensure customers receive deliveries on schedule.
The new VC6096 also improves safety and extends the lives of fleet vehicles with integrated SAE J1708 and SAE J1939 telematics support. Transportation customers can now be armed with the tools for automatic monitoring and collection of engine operation information, such as providing dispatchers with visibility into engine error codes to improve overall maintenance, driver productivity, and vehicle utilization. The VC6096 can also provide information on the driving patterns of mobile workers to identify safety issues, eliminate unnecessary wear and tear on vehicles, and minimize fuel consumption. In addition, the new VC6096 offers an open platform that allows customers to select and control applications and peripherals that best meet their business needs.
