Telit has announced that its CC864-DUAL cellular M2M module will provide the connectivity for real-time monitoring of at-risk motorists. The Intoxalock® Home and Mobile eLERT™ (Electronic Live Event Reporting Technology) devices allow law enforcement officers, fleet managers and even parents of teen drivers to wirelessly watch over at-risk motorists.
“By equipping the Intoxalock eLERT with advanced wireless capabilities, we are able to offer up-to-the-minute monitoring and GPS tracking that allows monitoring authorities to securely check on potentially intoxicated motorists, including previous offenders, fleet drivers, and even loved ones to keep roads safer,” said Scot Lewton, vice president of CST.
The new Intoxalock Home and Mobile eLERT units upload breath sample information to Intoxalock’s secure online WebLog Reporter. Authorities can then also access essential driving information, including vehicle coordinates, speed and route, with date and time stamps to remotely monitor offenders. To ensure user adherence, the Intoxalock unit includes a small, mountable camera for positive identification of the sample provider and sensors to detect tampering or device circumvention.
“With the advanced wireless capabilities, the Intoxalock eLERT devices clearly demonstrate the power of M2M technology, adding new features to a product that not only enables effective monitoring of potential drunk drivers, but also protects other drivers on the road from their irresponsible behavior,” said Mike Ueland, vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America.
With its ultra-compact design, and extended operating temperature range of -30° C to 80°C, Telit’s CC864-DUAL is designed for use in medium-to-high-volume M2M applications and mobile data and computing devices. The CC864-DUAL also incorporates standalone GPS and gpsOne® capabilities for application in mobile environments such as telematics, personal and asset tracking, and over-the-air maintenance and management of software.
