Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
Tag N Go, a leading telematics provider, today announced it won a Silver Connected World Award in the Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) category for its complete GPS Safety System designed to improve safe driving performance. The Connected World Awards honors companies successfully leveraging machine to machine (M2M) communications to solve a critical pain point within their industry, which demonstrates quantifiable results. Tag N Go, working with CalAmp (NASDAQ:CAMP), provides a unique digital safety system enabling productive dialog between parents and teens for teaching and fostering safe driving habits to last a lifetime.
According to Glenn Scott, Co-Founder of Tag N Go, “Tag N Go provides a solution for parents and teens to have an ongoing discussion on driving performance. Studies show that teens whose parents are supportive and involved in their driving safety were half as likely to have an accident.”
The Tag N Go GPS safety system calculates a proprietary Drive Score®, which analyzes safe driving techniques relative to acceleration, breaking, and cornering. Drive Score® compares driver speed versus the actual US posted speed limits on the route taken, then calculates a letter grade for each trip driven. Each and every trip is stored and readily is available for Trip Replay® to view and isolate areas for safety improvement. Trip Replay® and is accessible via highly interactive web and smart phone apps, and can be analyzed by teenage drivers and their parents. All Drive Score® and Trip Replay® statistics are stored in a secure system for analysis over time, and available for private family use. Tag N Go’s comprehensive actual driving behavior data is acquired utilizing the industry-leading LMU 3030 device, as well as bundled software platform and data services provided by CalAmp.
“The 2014 award winners honored are a combination of large and small companies representing a range of industries and applications. These winners came from areas of energy and healthcare, as well as building automation and retail. Solutions were implemented for GPS, car sharing, and even concrete-management systems,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Connected World magazine. “This is a testament to the growth of the vertical markets and acceptance of the technology within those various segments.”
The Connected World awards emphasize the process of creating a winning solution by combining multiple technologies, such as device, connectivity, hardware, radio modules, network service and provisioning, as well as application software and infrastructure. Award winners were announced during the Connected World Conference, held in conjunction with the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.
