PRECO’s PreView Sentry Provides Geotab Customers with Increased Safety Analytics for Medium and Heavy Duty Fleets

The introduction of PreView Sentry to the Geotab Marketplace helps provide our medium and heavy duty industry customers with an integrated solution that can provide immediate value.

PRECO Electronics®, the global leader in heavy-duty collision avoidance solutions, today announced that its object detection solution, PreView Sentry™ will now be available on the Geotab Marketplace. Appealing to both on and off road fleets, the integration of PreView Sentry with Geotab’s open-platform telematics solution captures critical data related to blind-zone collision avoidance and near miss information.

Specifically, the combination of PRECO and Geotab’s telematics solution will provide data that will report collision-warning alerts, including detection zones, to report incidents and near misses. The MyGeotab platform can combine this information with other safety analytics such as speed, acceleration, braking and location to give fleet operators valuable safety analytics. Additionally, Geotab users can create real-time event alerts, as well as summary reports to gain broader insights. This advanced technology will help fleets create safer routes and driving habits, while minimizing the costs and occurrences of collisions.

“The introduction of PreView Sentry to the Geotab Marketplace helps provide our medium and heavy duty industry customers with an integrated solution that can provide immediate value,” said Scott Sutarik, Associate Vice President, Commercial Vehicle Solutions at Geotab. “Customers’ ability to capture data will have a dramatic impact on how they evaluate drivers and expectations. Geotab is focused on providing customers with a complete picture of the vehicle operation and PRECO’s collision avoidance data is a critical element to this goal.”

PRECO’s suite of radar-based collision avoidance systems is built to work independently or in conjunction with other safety solutions. PRECO’s flexible radar systems monitor blind spots on the sides and rear of a vehicle, and actively warn operators with audible and visual alerts to help avoid potential collisions – improving operational safety and efficiency.

“PRECO is excited to join the Geotab Marketplace, providing customers with valuable safety event data and analytics for their fleet vehicles,” said Tom Loutzenheiser(@tomloutz), Vice President of Business Development at PRECO. “Our PreView driver assistance systems for collision avoidance are proven to reduce blind-zone accidents up to 80%. Now with Geotab, customers can leverage this event information to improve driver safety and fleet efficiency.”
