TomTom Telematics has a new driver aid

 

TomTom Telematics has launched its PRO 8275 TRUCK with a view to improving truck navigation, driver safety and business processes.

A customisable driver terminal, PRO 8275 TRUCK is said to provide dedicated routes for trucks based on dimensions, weight, hazardous cargo and maximum speed.

“This enables drivers to avoid bridges, small streets, sharp turns, U-turns and restricted roads as much as possible, ensuring a smoother journey, as well as helping keep drivers and cargo safe, by avoiding potentially risky routes,” the company says.

“Combined with TomTom Traffic, which helps predict and avoid traffic on both motorways and secondary roads, TomTom PRO 8275 TRUCK will aid truck drivers in selecting the fastest route, helping them to arrive safely and on time.

“The new driver terminal seamlessly integrates information captured in the field enriching existing business applications to enable smarter decision-making, enhanced by the immediacy of real-time data.”

Additionally, the driver terminal can be customised using open APIs, allowing businesses to create bespoke apps tailored to their needs.

Apps are also available in the TomTom App Center.

Vehicle checks, proof of delivery, paperless reporting, question paths and barcode scanning can be integrated into the workflow of Webfleet, a software-as-a-service solution.
