YPSILANTI — The Ypsilanti-based automotive engineering firm IOSix announced its newest product, the IOSix Tracking System, at the 2017 Mid-America Trucking Show, to be held March 23-25 in Louisville, Ky.
IOSix CEO Robert Vogt said the new product was designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized trucking fleets at low cost, saving time and money for fleet operators.
Said Vogt: “There are no hardware costs, no contract, and it is accessible through desktop or mobile devices. As the largest annual heavy-duty trucking event in the world, MATS is the perfect place to introduce the system.”
Easy to install, the system uses a plug-and-play OBD-II interface; a J1939 adapter is available for bigger rigs. The system provides GPS information every 30 seconds (in boost mode, every 15). Other features include audio and visual alerts when assets start moving, and data retention ranging from 7 days to 10 years. The system is compatible with other tracking software and automatically records driving time, trip distance, and stop time.
IOSix, founded in 2005, provides automotive and heavy truck data loggers, GPS trackers, and other vehicle systems.
