Fleet mobility technology provider PeopleNet, a Trimble Company, debuted the PD.5 Android-powered fixed-mount display.
The PeopleNet Display.5 was built for the rigors of the commercial trucking industry, the company said. It gives PeopleNet customers a new option to use for complying with the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate while leveraging other applications such as navigation and in-cab scanning.
“The PD.5, much like our Android-based tablets, lays the foundation for the next-generation of fleet mobility and helps our customers transform their drivers’ experience,” said Bryan Coyne, general manager, North America for Trimble’s Transportation Mobility Division, which includes PeopleNet.
Through PeopleNet’s Managed Mobility service, fleets can manage business and third-party apps running on the display and provide remote assistance for support cases and troubleshoote other mobile applications.
The PeopleNet Display.5 can pair with multiple in-vehicle gateways from PeopleNet that leverage 4G LTE connectivity.
“As we continue our migration to Android, the PD.5 can run both proprietary solutions alongside third-party apps, giving a fleet the ability to customize the driver experience to optimize productivity,” said Coyne. “Android software also unifies all of our latest devices, so a fleet can run any combination of fixed-mounted displays, handhelds and consumer-grade devices to meet their business-specific needs.”
The PeopleNet Display.5 is available now and will be showcased at the 2018 in.sight user conference + expo in Houston, September 9 – 12.
